A Small Investment to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home, and Maximize the Lifespan and Energy Efficiency of Your Home Heating Equipment.
Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling & heating system at peak performance by having Van Antwerp’s Mechanical do annual pre-season check-ups. Van Antwerp’s Mechanical recommends starting up your equipment to make sure the equipment is working at its full efficiency to keep your energy bills down, and so your equipment won't break down during the hottest/coldest time of the year. It's best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall.
Inspect, clean or change air filters "Once a Month" in your furnace.
Van Antwerp’s Mechanical technician can show you how to do this. A dirty filter can increase energy costs and damage your equipment, leading to early failure.
A furnace filter not only protects the components inside the furnace from dirt and debris, it also cleans the air that we breathe in your home.
If the filter is dirty or clogged with debris, then less air from the blower makes its way into your home, which causes the air conditioner or furnace to use more energy to adequately cool or heat your home. Maintaining your furnace filter also helps the environment because the lower our energy needs, the lower our fossil fuels consumption, which in turn reduces carbon monoxide emissions into the atmosphere.
