Regularly replacing your system’s air filter helps keep impurities out of the air and your air conditioner or furnace. Clean filters ensure proper airflow to your unit, which helps it run more efficiently.
Yes. Installing an air purifier as part of your home HVAC system can significantly improve your indoor air quality by removing impurities like dust, pet dander, mold spores, tobacco smoke and other allergens form the air.
If you are concerned about your indoor air quality, duct cleaning is recommended. Your ductwork is responsible for distributing air throughout your home. When things like dust, mold, pet hair and other particulates get trapped inside your ductwork, they’re also in the air you’re breathing and this can make you sick.
If you notice excessive layers of dust on furniture, a musty odor that won’t go away or suffer from allergies or asthma, consider having your air ducts cleaned.
A heat pump is a single unit that heats and cools your home. In the summer, it cools your home by pumping heat from inside your house to the outside, and in the winter months, it moves heat from the air outside into your home.
There is no direct answer to that question. Every home is different. Purchasing a unit that is the right size for your home and needs is vital to keeping you comfortable and energy costs low. Depending on the layout, size, environmental conditions and comfort needs, Metro Mechanical can help you determine the best size unit for your home.
Yes. Installing a programmable thermostat allows you to customize your thermostat settings based on your needs and lifestyle. You can create custom schedules for times when you do not require controlled comfort, like while you are at work or away on vacation. Anytime you are running your heating or cooling unit less means you are using less energy and saving money.
Over the summer, dust can collect on the heat exchanger. When you turn the furnace on for the first time, the odor you smellis that of burning dust. Consider opening your windows to air out the odor. It is important to note that although this odor is harmless, it is strongly recommended you have your furnace serviced at least once annually to guarantee it is running safely.
Humidifiers are great for homes with excessively dry air. Especially during the winter, you might notice dry skin and an increase in the frequency of static shocks. Installing an automatic humidifier will help adjust the moisture in your home to help you be more comfortable. When they work in conjunction with your furnace, a humidifier can help you save on energy costs, too.
