Cleaning Up Your Ventilation System

When I moved into my first place, I couldn't believe how dirty everything was all the time. I found myself dusting and mopping continuously, only to deal with a fresh layer of grime later. After awhile, I realized that the problem was blowing straight out of my air ducts. My ventilation lines were so dirty that it was spreading grime through my house every single time the air clicked on. Fortunately, I called an HVAC contractor who was able to clean my vents to a gleaming shine. I know how big of a difference cleaning up your ventilation system can make, which is why I want to spread the word.

2 Things To Do To Get Your Furnace Ready For Winter

Rick Wells

It may seem like winter is far away when it's the middle of summer, but the problem is that you aren't ever all that far away from winter. That means that you shouldn't wait too long to make sure that your furnace is ready for the next winter. If you wait until right before winter to make sure that your furnace is ready to go, you are going to end up having to wait for a long time for any needed repairs, and you may go into winter without your furnace working. So what you should do is to have your furnace checked out in the middle of the summer. But what all does having your furnace checked out entail?

Inspection and Cleaning

The first thing that the service tech is going to do is going to inspect your furnace. They are going to look at all kinds of things, including whether or not all your bearings are in good shape, that there are no holes anywhere, and that all your ducts are in good shape. Once they go through the inspection, they are going to start cleaning out your furnace.

Cleaning out your furnace will include making sure that there is no soot or scoring on the burner. Soot and scoring could make it so it's harder for the burner to work, and soot is actually really dangerous. It could actually cause your furnace to catch fire. 


Another benefit of all that inspecting and cleaning is that the service tech is going to find any problems in the furnace, like broken or worn out parts. While the service tech is taking everything apart to clean and inspect it, they will also be able to make sure that everything is in good working order.

You don't want to have some piece of your furnace breaking down in the middle of the winter just because that little piece was worn out, so getting all those little pieces repaired or replaced during the summer will make it so that doesn't happen. It will also make it so that if those little pieces break down, they won't take any other parts with them, causing your furnace repair to be even more expensive. 

Winter is around the corner, so you need to be prepared. Having an HVAC company, such as CHAMBERS MECHANICAL SERVICES, come in and do some work on your furnace in the middle of the summer will mean that your furnace will be ready.
