A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and
cooling system. Instead of multiple systems, like a
furnace and an air conditioner, a heat pump can cool your home during
the summer and heat your home during the winter.
Yes, you should
exchange the furnace air filters
on a regular basis. Be sure and
use the right size for your furnace, and ensure they are installed the right
way. Depending on the amount of system usage, pet dander, hair or fur, dust
and other contaminants in the air, Fox Service Company
suggests changing your air filter every 30 to 90 days.
It is important
to keep the area around the furnace free of debris, dirt, and any miscellaneous
items. Making sure no
storage items are in the area will also help keep 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
advise replacing it. When a
heater or HVAC system is old, it
can’t operate as effectively and
might end up costing you
more money than it should.
