Winter is around the corner, Is Your Furnace Ready?

Winters in Northeast Ohio can be long and harsh. The snow is beautiful, but the cold, wet weather can be difficult to get through. As much as we all love snowmen and hot chocolate in the winter, it’s always a relief when spring comes back around and we can open our homes to fresh air and sunshine again.

With the fall season coming to a close, Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning wants to help your family stay safe for the winter while making sure your furnace is operating at full capacity to keep you warm all season.

Many people don’t realize it, but your furnace needs annual check-ups and maintenance before use to protect your health and prepare it to provide heat. If this isn’t done, you could be putting your family at risk for any of the following:

Reduced Indoor Air Quality

Dust, dander, mites, mold and other potentially harmful substances can build up in your ducts over the warm summer months. An annual cleaning can remove these items, which can trigger asthma, respiratory problems, headaches, eye irritation, dry skin and nosebleeds.

Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning can improve your indoor air quality during the winter with proper ventilation and fresh air make up where necessary. Whole home humidifiers, cleaning of duct work/ heat run pipes, and AEROSEAL-sealing from the inside out will drastically improve your air quality and in-home climate comfort.

Carbon Monoxide

Many homes in Northeast Ohio depend on gas or oil heat in the winter months. If you rely on either of these sources, it’s imperative that you have a certified technician inspect and clear your furnace prior to its use. If your system isn’t working as well as it should, you could expose your family to carbon monoxide or other fuel by-products that can pose potentially life-threatening harm.

Remember that even if you have a carbon monoxide alarm, it may not detect leaks that are small. Even minor carbon monoxide leaks can pose mental and physical health dangers, and carbon monoxide can build in an enclosed space. Be sure to have a proper evaluation done before relying on your furnace for heat.

Poor Equipment Efficiency

Utilization and effectiveness of equipment can and will lower utility bills, extend equipment longevity, and provide much better personal climate comfort throughout your homes.

As a homeowner, there are so many irons in the fire, so it can be overwhelming to keep up with general maintenance.
