A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and
cooling system. Instead of separate systems, like a
furnace and an air conditioner, a heat pump can cool your home during summer and heat your home during the winter.
Yes, you should
change the furnace air filters
frequently. Be sure and
use the right size for your furnace, and ensure they are installed the right
way. Depending on the amount of system usage, pet dander, hair or fur, dust
and other contaminants in the air, Advanced Air Home Services
suggests changing your air filter every 30 to 90 days.
It is important
to keep the area around the furnace free of debris, dirt, and any miscellaneous
items. Making sure no
storage items are in the area will also help ensure
the equipment is more accessible for repairs or inspections.
If your heater requires frequent repairs, is 15 years or older,
or cannot heat your home
recommend you replace it. When a
heater or HVAC system is old, it
doesn’t operate as effectively and
may actually end up costing you
more money than it should.
