Call for a Clean & Check Service

Routine HVAC maintenance, inspections, and clean and check services are the best ways to keep your heating and cooling systems healthy and working properly. That being said, when the first cold spell hits, your local HVAC company will be inundated with customers requesting clean and checks, furnace repairs, and more. These services will check your electrical wiring, look for leaks, check the blower, clean your furnace, and much more. Thus, when you call in the summer to schedule your clean and check not only will you be guaranteed to get an appointment, but you may even catch a special deal as well. Thus, it pays to be proactive in your HVAC maintenance. Here’s even more tips on how to stay warm in the winter.

Change Your Air Filter

Odds are, you didn’t change your air filter after the last time you turned on your furnace. These should be changed about every 30 days when running a lot during the winter since they catch much of the pet dander, pollen, allergens, and pollutants running through your HVAC system. This not only keeps your air cleaner, but it also protects your furnace from undue wear and tear.

Check Your Thermostat

By turning on your heat before the winter hits, you’ll be able to ensure your thermostat is functioning properly.

Clean Your Air Ducts

Air ducts are part of your HVAC system that most people forget about. As such, it may have been awhile since you’ve had them cleaned. If this is the case, it’s best to call your local HVAC company for an air duct cleaning service. Air ducts can build up allergens and pollutants that need to be periodically cleaned, especially if you have an allergy sufferer in your home or office. This will not only improve your air quality, but also keep your home or office cleaner as well. Barrington Heating and Air offers air duct cleaning services. Call to schedule today!
