Furnace Maintenance Recommendations

Here are few things we think you need to remember this heating season…

1. Keep your furnace filter cleaned
2. Have your furnace maintenance every year

Your filter is what is removing all the dust, dander and debris from your air in your home. Remember, there are TWO filters in your house – your furnace filter and your lungs! Let’s make sure the furnace filter is taking the brunt of the dust and allergens, not your body.

Since your furnace is what moves the air during heating AND cooling season throughout your home, a dirty air filter can stop that air from moving. What happens is the fan inside your furnace/air handler can’t pull the air it needs from your ductwork causing it to work harder than it should.

A good example of this is a clothes dryer! If you don’t clean the filter on your dryer it can’t get enough air to dry your clothes and may break. Can you imagine not changing that filter?

What Size HVAC Unit Is Right for Me?

HVAC System put in place

When it comes to heating and air conditioning equipment, Hauser Air believes that bigger isn’t always better. You’ll see the best results, longest life and most energy efficiency from a system that’s designed for the space you want to cool and heat.

A knowledgeable Hauser Air technician can help you identify the best fit for your home and budget, but here are just a few of the factors that he or she will consider when making that recommendation:

  • Square footage of the heated/cooled space. If your HVAC system is designed for a smaller space than you’re heating/cooling, you probably won’t be pleased with its performance. Moreover, it will likely use more energy and experience more wear and tear than a properly sized system. On the other end of the spectrum, a system that’s too powerful could waste energy by cycling on and off too often. Not only would you be paying more than you need to in initial costs, but you’d also use more energy than necessary to maintain the desired temperature.
  • The Southwest Ohio climate. Temperate areas may not need the most powerful heating and cooling equipment on the market.
  • Zones! Do you need separate controls for different parts of your house? This is especially important to consider in larger houses.
