3 Common Home Disasters to Look Out for This Fall
Now that summer is quickly fading it is an appropriate time to ensure that your home or business Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is properly working before winter’s drastic cold arrives.
October and November can bring some chilly days, so remember that when the heat is turned on for the first time during fall, a room will usually be full of dust which is horrible for allergy sufferers.
Here are a few incidents that can cause problematic issues when the fall season arrives but can be rectified by knowledgeable HVAC professionals.
On a chilly November evening you decide to turn on the heat but it doesn’t work, even after raising the thermostat and being certain that it is in the heat position (set at above the room temperature). After performing these checks and the furnace still does not come on call a professional service.
If your home is warmed by a gas furnace, ensure the valve is pointed to the on position however if nothing happens, do call your HVAC representative, plus have the overall system checked out.
Individuals who suffer allergies from lingering dust may also be bothered by difficulty breathing and even experience symptoms of asthma such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Dust allergies also cause individuals to experience red, watery, itchy eye and runny nose.
So besides having the heating unit checked out, contact this professional to ask about having a high-efficiency media filter installed which can greatly improve air quality, particularly since we spend more time indoors during winter.
While dusty filters can trigger allergies, so can dirty air ducts, particularly after summer is done and the heat is turned on for the season. Many experience sneezing and coughing when the heat has been on for about a week and it worsens if a building’s heating ducts have not been thoroughly cleaned in a while.
To remedy this it is important to have the ducts cleaned before putting the heat on for the season and once it is completed you will notice a difference in how you feel as the air will be fresher and cleaner since mold and dust particles were removed.
Your home will enjoy better air; efficiency will be improved because the blowers and coils are cleaned which also can lower energy consumption, reflecting in a possibly lower monthly bill.
