How your heater affects air quality

Your heater will collect things like mold, dust, and dirt when it’s not being used in warmer seasons. When you turn your heater on in the winter, you don’t want to have unclean air pumped through your house. Replacing your air filter regularly and keeping your HVAC system clean will ensure that you’re only getting clean air flowing through your house.

If you don’t keep the system clean, the mold and dirt can make you sick, which is no fun in the winter. It can also dry out the air, which can make your skin and throat dry out. It can even make your wood furniture and cabinets dry out and splinter. If you are having respiratory issues that just aren’t going away, you see your houseplants drying up, or your carpets are giving you frequent electric shocks, it may mean that your HVAC system needs to be cleaned out. If you let it go for too long without cleaning, your heater could emit carbon dioxide that will make you even sicker.

Maintaining your HVAC system in Southampton, PA

The first step to keeping your HVAC system clean to improve air quality is to regularly replace the air filter. It’s an easy fix that can make a big difference. Consult an HVAC professional on how to perform more advanced cleaning and regular maintenance.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
