Furnace Tune Up Brooklyn Center | Furnace Maintenance Brooklyn Center

There is no time like the present to start thinking about scheduling a check-up on your heating and cooling system. You don’t want to get stuck without AC when the summer heat arrives! It is important to have your furnace system inspected to prepare for the upcoming season—which can include inclement weather, humidity, cool temperatures, and other forms of unpredictable Minnesota weather. Summer might feel like it is still far away, but now is the ideal time to get a handle on your cooling system. There are a variety of reasons why it’s important to schedule your Furnace Tune Up Brooklyn Center.

The following are the top 5 reasons to schedule your springtime tune-up with All Climate Mechanical before the weather heats up.

Prevent Airborne Allergies

Indoor Air Quality, what you don’t see could hurt you. It may surprise you that mold, dust, and other airborne allergens are hiding in your HVAC equipment. If you or anyone in your home is affected by allergens, it’s imperative that you schedule regular maintenance on your HVAC.

You may think you are all set by just changing your air filter, however, your air filter can only filter so much. Once inside the air handler, particles will settle on the coils, combine with moisture, and become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Year after year as you use your system, this grime builds up and infiltrates your home each time you turn it on. It’s going to take more than a little bit of dusting to get rid of this dirt!

This process continues throughout the ducts in your home.  Have you ever had your ducts cleaned? If not, you might want to think about it. When your HVAC system is not in use, ducts also provide shelter to insects, dust mites, and rodents. This can cause even more contamination of your air supply with dander and droppings. Why take the risk of getting sick?

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Improving indoor air quality includes addressing issues such as air filtration, humidification, de-humidification, and proper attic ventilation.

Poor indoor air quality is a known cause of many types of respiratory issues. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, pollution levels indoors are generally two to five times higher than outdoors. Always have your indoor air quality tested. Make sure you carry out strategies to keep the air inside your home fresh and clean throughout the entire year.

Here are 6 simple ways you can improve your indoor air quality:

  • Increase ventilation around the home
  • Change your air filters frequently
  • Dust your home often with a damp cloth
  • Remove air contaminants like cigarette smoke
  • Avoid air fresheners and cleaning products
  • Schedule a Furnace Tune Up Brooklyn Center

As you can see, air quality plays a vital role in your health and the performance of your HVAC system.

Lower Monthly Utility Bills

Who doesn’t want to save money on their utility bills? A spring tune up will increase their HVAC system performance, which in turn helps you save on cooling costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy simple and inexpensive actions can help you save energy and money during the warm spring and summer months. A Furnace Tune Up Brooklyn Center is an important step in helping you have Lower Monthly Utility Bills.

How can you tell if your system is performing poorly?

  • A layer dust on your indoor coils
  • A layer of dirt on your outside coils
  • A blockage or leak in your ducts
  • Refrigerant is low
  • Don’t ignore the warning signs. We will check out all of this in our routine HVAC maintenance.

Avoid Breakdown Expenses and be proactive

Before summer is in full swing and your air conditioner is running 24/7, make sure it is ready to handle the heat. By sceduling a preventative maintenance on your HVAC system this spring, you will be able to afford AC downtime if there is an issue with your system. You don’t want your AC to malfunction on one of the hottest days of the year, do you? Find issues early on before they become costly fixes mid-season.Our technicians can also help you plan ahead if we see that a system is performing poorly and should be updated. This will help you to plan ahead with the replacement system and costs.

Extend the Lifespan of Your System

Extending the lifespan of your HVAC system means taking a proactive approach with maintenance. When routinely checked and serviced, your HVAC system can last two-fold. It is proven that by routinely performing a HVAC service— including air conditioner and furnace maintenance, you will be prolonging the life of the system and saving on costly repairs.

The regular maintenance of your HVAC system also helps to prevent airborne allergens from circulating throughout your home. Systems that protect the quality of indoor air will not only keep your home healthier, they will help keep it cleaner (which means less back-breaking spring cleaning for you).

The more efficient your system, the less money you spend on energy costs. By keeping up with routine maintenance, you ensure that your HVAC system won’t have minor issues that could develop into major problems.

Carbon Monoxide Brooklyn Park

Home Furnace Safety | Carbon Monoxide Brooklyn Park | All Climate Mechanical

Carbon Monoxide Brooklyn Park is an odorless and invisible threat for Minnesotans. The Minnesota Department of Health recently reported that accidental carbon monoxide poisonings peak in winter.  Carbon monoxide is a by-product of improper combustion, so if your furnace uses natural gas and it isn’t functioning properly, it could be producing carbon monoxide and venting it into your business or home.

Whatever your heating source, make sure you get an inspection and install a carbon monoxide detector within 10 feet of every bedroom in your home or apartment. Don’t hesitate to call All Climate Mechanical with any concerns about you furnace or possible Carbon Monoxide Brooklyn Park concerns.

What is Carbon Monoxide?

Carbon monoxide is often referred to as CO, which is the chemical symbol. Unlike many gases, CO has no odor, color, taste and it does not irritate your skin. CO gets into your body when you breathe. If you inhale a large amount of CO, your body begins to replace oxygen in your blood with CO. When your body does not get enough oxygen, your tissues break down and eventually death occurs.

Carbon Monoxide can be found in your home, camper, cabin and at work. CO is produced by appliances fueled with natural gas, liquefied petroleum (LP gas), oil, kerosene, coal, or wood. Burning charcoal and running vehicles also produce CO.

Every year over 200 people are unintentionally poisoned by carbon monoxide causing their death. Several thousand people go to hospital emergency rooms for treatment of CO poisoning. The initial symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to the flu, but without the fever. They include headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea and dizziness.

How to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Brooklyn Park Poisoning

  • Visit  the All Climate Mechanical Furnace Maintenance page on this site.
  • Make sure appliances are installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions and local building codes.
  • Have heating systems inspected and serviced annually.
  • Install a CO detector/alarm. This is not a substitute for the proper use and upkeep of appliances. Install a CO detector in the hallway near every separate sleeping area of the home.
  • Do not cover the detector with furniture or draperies.
  • Never burn charcoal inside your home, garage, vehicle or tent.
  • Never use portable fuel-burning camping equipment inside a home, garage, vehicle or tent.
  • Never leave a vehicle running in an attached garage, even with the garage door open.
  • Never service fuel-burning appliances without proper knowledge. Refer to the owner’s manual.
  • Never use gas appliances such as ranges, ovens, or clothes dryers for heating your home.

Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park | Carbon Monoxide Poisoning 

Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park is critical to a safe home in winter. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas. It is produced by burning fuels such as gas, wood, oil and coal. Most homes have an appliance that runs on one of these fuels. If the appliance is not vented properly or is not working properly, the house can fill with carbon monoxide. With the firing up of our furnaces and fireplaces this coming fall we also have an increased risk of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning in our homes. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can be avoided through proper weatherization and ventilation.

CO poisoning can occur when you are exposed to too much carbon monoxide. When you breathe too much carbon monoxide your ability to absorb oxygen is reduced, leading to serious tissue damage. CO poisoning can lead to death. Appliances and other devices that generate combustion fumes, such as gas furnaces and gas fireplaces, produce CO.

The danger of carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when too much CO accumulates in a poorly ventilated space. Here is a great article about good Home Ventilation Brooklyn Park from Century Insulation.

Here are some symptoms of CO poisoning to watch for this winter in yourself and your loved ones:

  • Weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Nausea
  • Dull headache
  • Vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness

CO poisoning is particularly dangerous for people who are sleeping or intoxicated. The fumes may be fatal before anyone realizes there’s a problem. That is why good home ventilation Brooklyn Park is so important. All Climate Mechanical can help with Furnace Maintenance and all your Fall and Winter Preparation.

To keep you and your family safe this winter:

  • Ensure that all your fuel burning appliances and heating devices are properly vented and maintained
  • Know the symptoms of CO poisoning
  • Install and maintain CO alarms in your home in accordance with Minnesota’s CO alarm law
  • Make sure you have proper home ventilation Brooklyn Park this winter
