How often should I have my furnace or boiler checked?
Ideally, a licensed professional should check your heating system annually. This will help in the elimination of possible breakdowns and expensive repairs, and keep it running at peak efficiency. Heating system checks will also aid in lengthening the life of your system.
How often should I change my filter?
Filters should be changed every 30 days of continuous operation. You can purchase a pleated filter from your local hardware store for about $3.00 or less. Avoid low-cost filters that you can see through, as they allow too much dirt or debris to pass through them.
Do I need a humidifier?
Certainly. Inadequate humidification during cold weather is one of the major causes of respiratory infections. The heating season causes people to be repeatedly attacked with winter colds. Winter is blamed for these problems, but the actual cause is dry air, which affects the membranes of the nose, throat, and bronchial tubes. Relative humidity also has a significant effect on controlling the occurrence of airborne infections.
Additionally, virtually all the woodwork in your home contains some moisture. As dry air sucks the moisture out, the wood shrinks and cracks. Hardwood floors separate at the seams, furniture shrinks and cracks, the doors warp and no longer fit their frames, as well as other problems that occur as the moisture is drawn off.
