Furnace Maintenance Tips
Furnace Filter Replacing
If you have the proper filter replacements, it is easy to replace your furnace filter when it gets too dirty. Different filters will have different timelines for how often you should replace them. Check the instructions on the filters for your specific furnace and change them accordingly.
How to Replace Your Furnace Filter
First things first, make sure that your furnace is turned off. Next, locate where your filter is–they are usually either located in the metal ductwork under the fan or in the furnace’s blower compartment–and gently remove it. As you take your filter out, make sure you note which side is facing out so that you don’t accidentally put the next one in backwards.
It is a good idea to have a plastic bag at the ready to put your old furnace filter directly into as you remove it because it can be pretty messy. Once you have removed and disposed of the dirty filter, you can carefully insert the new filter, making sure to place it in the same orientation that the old filter was in. Once your new filter is inserted, you can turn your furnace back on.
Replaced your filter and still having furnace problems? Whatever your furnace issue may be, if it’s out of your ability to fix then it’s time to call an expert. There is no better team of furnace repair specialists than the ones at Butler Plumbing!
Furnace Cleaning St. Albert
Regular furnace maintenance is important to keep it running smoothly and safely. You should have your furnace cleaned twice a year, and we recommend doing so before winter when your furnace will be working overtime and again as after winter comes to a close.It is also a good idea to have your furnace cleaned if you have just moved into a new home, if the flow of hot air changes significantly, or if you notice moisture in the ducts.
Furnaces act kind of like magnets for dust, dirt, and other debris. All that stuff gets trapped inside the furnace and then, when you turn it on, the debris blows out into the air that you breathe in your home. This can cause respiratory problems and allergies. In order to ensure better air quality in your home, make sure to get your furnace thoroughly cleaned twice a year.
