Your HVAC filter plays an important role in the protection and efficiency of your HVAC system, as well as maintaining the quality of the air in your home. The filter is most often made of pleated fibers enclosed in a frame. Filtration of the air happens when it is brought back into the HVAC equipment to be “cleaned” and then distributed again. Your air filter traps and holds a wide range of particles and contaminants that affect the quality of your air, your health and definitely your comfort.
These items include:
As you’d suspect, over time your air filter will become full of small debris, preventing it from working properly until it’s cleaned. A clogged filter not only means your air quality will continually decrease, but your HVAC system will also run less efficiently. Your system is working harder to heat, or cool your home, using more electricity.
An HVAC Condensate Pump is a very reliable part of the unit. It requires periodic maintenance and cleaning to ward off unwanted problems and premature failures. A condensate pump operating incorrectly can lead to problems with your system, including the overflow of water and water damage. The excess water / moisture could lead to the growth of mold and mildew inside your home. It is important to inspect your condensate pump and to clean it regularly.
What goes into furnace humidifier maintenance?
Just like your furnace, your humidifier requires maintenance about once a year to ensure that it is functioning properly and doesn’t cause any damage to your heating system. Some of the most important maintenance tasks include:
Electronic Air Cleaners are proven to reduce the amount of dust mites, mold spores, bacteria and other contaminants in the air. In fact, they’re 10 to 20 times more efficient at trapping particles than standard fiberglass HVAC filters. Because of the way they operate, though, their efficiency is dependent on how well they’re maintained.
Drain Line Treatment Strips control odors and prevent overflows by plugging condensate drain lines. They can also be used on humidifiers. Drain Line Treatment Strips are safe, non-corrosive, non-toxic and biodegradable. The product is completely soluble in water and it does not form any deposits in the pan or drain.
Left untreated, condensate pans can suffer from the build-up of sludge, scum and other accumulations. This build-up can cause odors as well as plugged drains and overflows, which in turn could result in water damage. Drain Line Treatment Strips are effective in cleaning and preventing deposits, and its use will eliminate the extra maintenance costs associated with odors, plugged drains and overflows.
