Here at Snellville Heating and Air in Forsyth, Fulton, and Oconee County, we care about families and their financial concerns. One way to help people save money on maintenance of their HVAC system is to stay up to date on the upkeep of their system. The furnace itself is an essential component of your heating and a/c system, so make sure that it is in tip top condition. Check for any gas leaks from the central heating system. Some of these gases are not detectable by smell, and some can be harmful to people. Maintaining your heating and air system is not only a healthy practice, but in the long term, it can save you money.
Also, have your ducts inspected. Examine them for any leaks, and have them properly cleaned every few years. If you have lots of pets in the home, you might wish to have the ducts cleaned annually. Make sure to wash or replace your filters as required. It’s wise to do this each month. To save time and possible frustration, make a list with specific data pertaining to the size and quantity of filters that you will need prior to making the trip to the store. Keep the home well insulated. Colder temperatures result in more time spent indoors, so make sure to check all of your detectors to see if they are working or if batteries need replacement. Keep your family safe. Always be ready and alert by having properly functioning fire and carbon monoxide detectors. Winter is a perfect time to check these devices, and to replace them if necessary.
