How Long Will My Furnace Filter Last?

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

air-fliter-cuCalifornia has recently experienced a series of major fires. Thankfully for us in the Central Valley, these fires were in the north and south of the state. But we’re not strangers to these disasters: last summer wildfires scorched more than 1700 acres in Fresno and Mariposa counties. This caused a plunge in air quality for surrounding areas. When this happens, we recommend making an immediate change to the furnace filter on your HVAC cabinet. Otherwise, extra pollutants trapped in the filter will further drop indoor air quality.

Important Gas Furnace Safety Tips

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

inside-a-gas-furnaceYour gas furnace is going to turn on soon and settle in for another winter of warming your home. You want to make sure the furnace not only runs reliably, but also runs safely. Below we’ve listed a few tips that will help your family relax and enjoy a safe winter with a natural gas furnace in Fresno, CA.

Know the smell of gas leaks and how to react

You’ve probably heard that carbon monoxide is colorless, tasteless, and odorless, making it difficult to detect. However, natural gas manufacturers place a chemical called mercaptan into the gas to give it a distinct—and unpleasant—smell. Mercaptan is harmless, but it smells like rotten eggs—a smell most people associate with sulfur. If you notice this smell in your home, you may have a dangerous gas leak. Don’t wait to find out if it’s from the furnace or not! Leave your house right away, and don’t attempt to call for help while still inside.

Heating Troubles That May Be the Fault of the Air Filter

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

air-fliter-cuModern heating systems are normally reliable, year after year, provided they receive a professional installation by licensed HVAC technicians and continue to have annual maintenance. But no system can ever be 100% reliable, and no amount of care can protect a heater from all malfunctions. At some point in your current heater’s service life, you may need to call for heating repair in Fresno, CA from our trained team.

One of the more common problems that affect forced-air systems (which include all types of furnace and heat pumps) is trouble with the air filter. This isn’t a filter for providing better indoor air quality, but the standard filter attached to the HVAC cabinet that stops dust and dirt from getting into the heater through the return air vents. An air filter clogs over time and must be replaced every 1 to 3 months so air can flow freely through the blower and heater.

If a clogged filter is left in place, it can lead to these heating problems:
