Change your furnace filter regularly. Preventing the passage of dust and dirt, furnace filters protect the coils, heat exchanger, and other HVAC components from excessive cycling and overheating due to dust buildup, ensuring maximum equipment life. Enhanced filtering capabilities can be added to your HVAC system to further protect your investment and to improve the quality of your home’s air.
Check for unrestricted airflow. Your furnace needs to “breathe” and access to plenty of clean air is necessary for your equipment to work properly. Be sure that the area around your registers and air-intake vents throughout your house are free of obstructions.
Use your HVAC system to make your home more comfortable in other ways. With a whole-house humidifier, your family will experience less static electricity and less skin, throat, and nose irritation. You can also combat “stale” indoor air, including bacteria, viruses, and odors by installing a UV light inside your home’s central heat and air system.
