SERVPRO technicians recommend replacing your furnace's air filter every month. It is easy to locate, all you need to do is remove the old filter and slide in a new one. Make sure that you follow the arrows on the frame to install it correctly. You might also consider upgrading to a pleated HEPA filter or an electrostatic filter to help increase your furnace's energy efficiency along with improved air quality.
You would benefit from hiring a professional company like SERVPRO to inspect and clean the air vents and ducting of your ventilation system to remove dust and other obstructions that prevent proper ventilation. We can check the furnace blower belts for cracks and ensure that your thermostat is working properly to maintain the proper temperature even while you are asleep or away from home. It is important to maintain in the cold season a constant 30 to 60-degree temperature in your home, even when you're not there. Maintaining the proper temperature helps to avoid freezing pipes or other hazards from forming during cold weather conditions.
The technicians at SERVPRO can also inspect your furnace's exhaust flue to determine whether it is performing properly, removing any branches or nests erected by animals during the summer and make sure that all of your air vents are working correctly and producing the proper air flow and quality. Furnace Blow Back can create a messy sooty problem within your home. A lack of maintenance, dirty filters, normal wear and tear, pilot control issues, and malfunctioning thermostats can all be taken care of by the services that we provide.
