Be careful not to block vents

Posted 3/19/2019

I know it may be the perfect spot for that rug or couch, but it will cover up an air vent. Can covering one little air vent really be that big of a deal?! The answer is yes. Air vents need to be free and clear to prevent HVAC problems.

When a technician first installed your HVAC system, a load calculation was preformed to figure out what size your home’s condenser and furnace needed to
be to adequately cool and heat your home. The load calculation took into account how much air would flow through your system. It is a fine-tuned balance, because
a large part of achieving the proper temperature in a home is air flow.

Therefore when you block vents with furniture, drapery and rugs the entire AC has to work harder to pull air into the system to push air back out. And this extra work will take a toll on your system. Your condenser will wear out faster and will consume more energy. Agitated air flow may also cause humidity and refrigerant issues, which could led to mold and is harmful for your HVAC system.
Not to mention it can damage your furniture over time, too.

Tips on buying furnace filters

Posted 1/16/2019

Filters utilize an industry wide rating system called "MERVE" (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value), this system has been used since 1960 by virtually all filter manufacturers. MERVE ratings vary from 1 (filters only the largest of particles) to 16 (filters ultra-fine particles like viruses and bacteria). Low MERVE ratings don't offer much filtration for your home or for protecting furnace components. Very high MERVE ratings actually reduce airflow so they are almost always used only for filtering air in operating rooms. The best choice for homeowners is between a 7 and 12 MERVE rating. Which then begs the question, which is best for you?
