As climate shifts to warmer weather, a regular and recurring household maintenance task is to prioritize indoor air quality. Issues including molds, bacteria, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds tend to increase during the warming months. These increases your family's risk to respiratory diseases. To improve indoor air quality, you must provide proper ventilation and clean source of air at your home.

This is the best time to schedule your spring AC tune-up. It is important that a certified technician perform your AC servicing.

You should be advised that dirty A/C filters can cause home air ducts to become dirty and clogged. More importantly, this promotes a favorable environment for molds and spores to propagate within the ductwork. Unwanted airborne particles like dust, pollen and pet hair can trap and accumulate in your filter. When not cleaned regularly, build-up of allergens such as fungi, pollen and bacteria in the air and may trigger respiratory ailments. Air conditioning filters must be cleaned and/or replaced for both health and system efficiency reasons. Dirty filters cause your HVAC equipment to work harder and use up to five percent more energy.

If your family is going to spend the holidays with family or friends out-of-town, make sure to have your heating system checked before you leave the house for an extended time.

Spending money on costly heating or plumbing repairs is not a fun way to start the holiday season. Do yourself and your home a favor and prevent issues that can arise to spoil your holiday vacation.

Here are things you might want to check days prior your departure:

  • Heating system inspection must be done. Replace furnace filter when necessary.
  • Check the heat ex-changer for rust and cracks. Replace it when you suspect a break or damage.
  • Inspect venting system for any leaks, holes and blockages. Ensure all the heating vents are open and not blocked.
  • Make sure to cover even the tiniest hole you can spot inside your home. Insulate around any water pipes that are situated in the inner side of exterior walls. Frozen pipes can wreak havoc to a home and can cost homeowners a fortune for the damage.
  • Use drain pans for washers, water heaters and safety valves
  • You should know where the water meter shut off are settled and ensure they are functioning well by turning them on and off on several occasions in a year.
