A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and
cooling system. Instead of separated systems, like a
furnace and an air conditioner, a heat pump can cool your home in the summer and heat your home during the winter.
Yes, you should
exchange the furnace air filters
often. Be sure and
use the right size for your furnace, and double check they are installed correctly. Depending on the amount of system usage, pet dander, hair or fur, dust
and other contaminants in the air, Patrick's Heating & Air Conditioning
advises changing your air filter every 30 to 90 days.
It is pivotal
to keep the area around the furnace free of debris, dirt, and any miscellaneous
items. Keeping the area clear will also help make the equipment more accessible for repairs or an inspection.
If your heater needs constant repairs, is 15 years or older,
or can’t heat your home
suggest that you it. When a
heater or HVAC system is older, it
can’t operate as effectively and
might actually end up costing you
more money than it should.
