The Wear and Tear of Heating and Air

In Indoor Air Quality, Maintenance, Repair, Service on October 22, 2014 at 2:29 pm

As your heating and air conditioning system gets older, general wear and tear can lead it to stop working as efficiently. Your system works very hard to keep your home comfortable and that can take its toll. Your system has so many intricate parts that a number of things can affect it over time.

The number one cause of system failure is the buildup of dust. Changing your air filters indoors monthly, and having your system cleaned once a year can prevent this. Your system may also find itself having to work harder and longer season after season to maintain the level of comfort that you would like. But that’s to be expected, right?

What About My Warranty?

In Indoor Air Quality, Maintenance, Repair, Service, Warranty on October 10, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Most heating and cooling systems will come with a warranty whenever you purchase a new system. The length of coverage ranges depending on the system and you can even extend them sometimes when your coverage is almost up. Warranties are great for those unforeseen repair needs, especially if your system is only a few years old.

But did you know that your warranty could be voided if the manufacturer determines that neglect of maintenance was the cause? Just like you would get an oil change or tune-up on your car, your heating and cooling system needs this same attention. You don’t want your car’s transmission to blow up just like you don’t want your heater to stop working this fall. Especially if you’ll be stuck with the full bill because it could have been prevented with a tune-up.

Unfortunately sometimes, we’ve just got to learn, but we have come up with a few ways to help you avoid this trouble with “How to Avoid Lessons Learned the Hard Way.”  Take a look; it could save you a lot of money in the future.

Cost of Comfort

With the economy the way it is and rising natural gas costs, we have to try and find a balance of cost over comfort. That’s why being energy efficient is so important these days because it can save you a lot of money on your energy bills.

At Fuller Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, we have several ways to check your system to make sure it is running at optimal performance and keeping more money in your pocket. There are also some small things that you can do to cut down on energy costs. Change your HVAC filters monthly during peak heating and cooling seasons. They only cost a few bucks to replace and a dirty filter makes your system work harder and longer. You can also look for any leaks around your windows or doors that could be letting the heat escape.

If you want to know more about what to expect come this cold season, read our free report “Predicting the Cost of Your Home Heating.”  You can see more about the costs of natural gas and a way to cut down your energy usage by 20% from last year.

Cause and Effect

You’re probably familiar with the concept of “cause and effect” and how it can lead to a whole bunch of trouble. (Not that I speak from experience. And not that I don’t!)  But this basically means that some things happen not just on their own but as part of a set of events.

As an example, let’s say you’re walking into your home when your phone starts ringing. To answer your call, you quickly drop your high-priced prescription sunglasses on the couch. You sense that’s not a good idea, but you tell yourself you’ll pick them up when you finish the call. Then you forget. Can you imagine what “effect” is coming? Yes, someone, maybe even you, will probably be sitting on those glasses in the near future.

See the point (even if through crushed lenses)?

Now let me apply it to something more in my area. If the air inside your home is making respiratory issues like allergies and asthma worse, there could be several causes that are leading to these effects – and several strategies that can help your family breathe a little easier. A few of them are here in this report called, Improving the Quality of Your Home’s Indoor Air.”
