Furnace Maintenance in Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission, Coquitlam, BC
Maintaining your furnace is a necessary task, but one that you may not have the time or the knowledge to handle properly. Heating units must be kept clean and in good working order or their efficiency will be compromised. Contracting with a professional company like Big Valley Heating & Air Conditioning is the best way to ensure that your investment is well taken care of.
Keeping the inner-workings of a furnace clean is key to it having an extended lifespan. Dusting and vacuuming in and around the unit as well as all the air intake vents is very important. A dirty filter clogs the airflow and can overwork the equipment. The filter should be replaced every 30 days.
Types of Filters
The type of filter you use on your furnace depends on the unit and any personal needs the inhabitants of your home or building may have. For those who suffer from allergies, a filter that specifically traps allergens can provide relief.
These are the most inexpensive filters available. They are disposable and won’t trap finer particles.
Pleated filters cost a bit more and have four to eight times the filtering capacity of the simpler fiberglass variety. They are also disposable.
These filters are more expensive initially, but they are washable and can last for several years. They also offer much higher filtration rates.
Electric filters offer superior filtration, but they must be customized. Therefore, they must be professionally installed.
