Your home is place that you want to be comfortable and be able to relax. That is why we have all the amenities that we enjoy on a regular basis. One that you may not really think about or maybe even take for granted is the temperature in your house. If you did not use any heating or cooling system your home would be at the same temperature that it is outside. During the hot summer months the house would be sweltering and the cold winter months would be completely unbearable. The few months in between might be okay but that is it. That is why we depend on the heating and cooling system. If you don’t take good care of your system you will not have a good and efficient working system or comfortable indoor indoor air temperature. This can cost you money and send you replacing it sooner than you expected. The furnace that you are using to heat your home is something that you need to have inspected and tuned up regularly. You also should know that the furnace has the ability to have buildup that can be a problem for you and your family’s health.
Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning Lists Buildup & Debris that Can Be Found in Your Furnace
Bacteria in Furnace: The furnace is a system that runs to keep your house warm and comfortable. That means that you set it so that when your home reaches a temperature that you set with the thermostat it will turn on or off. That means that the furnace will be turning on and off and heating up and cooling back down. The furnace is meant to work in this manner but what happens is that there is condensation that will often start to build up. The condensation is water that can start to build up in and around the system. There is a line that is a part of the heater or furnace that should drain this build up but often there is still moisture left behind. What happens when there is moisture that is getting warmed up is the growth of microbes. This can be bacteria that is now growing in a system that is blowing warmed air in the house. That is why having your furnace cleaned is so important.
Dust & Debris in Furnace: The other part of the system is that the air is circulated through the house. The air in the home will be filtered before it is reaching the furnace but that does not mean that all the debris is caught. If you have a pet in the house your furnace can start to build up hair, dander and fur. The air also includes hair from people as well as skin cells. It can have insects and other allergens that you don’t want to have in the air in your home. The best way to do that is to have your furnace treated and tuned up.
