4 Steps to Get Your Heating System Ready for Winter - North County, San Diego

The heating season is coming sooner than you think and you don’t want to wait until it’s too late, or until the middle of holiday entertaining, to realize that you need to get your furnace or your HVAC system winter-ready.

Check and Clean Air Ducts

You can take steps at home to do some basic air duct cleaning and to make sure that you are keeping your air ducts free of the debris that slows down airflow, wastes energy and ultimately compromises your heating system. For larger jobs and preventive maintenance leading up to the heating season, Sherlock Air is able to come into your home and provide thorough air duct cleaning service.

In addition to saving energy and extending the life of your heating system, air duct cleaning actually improves the indoor air quality in your home. This is especially important in the winter months when you are more likely to be spending time indoors with the windows closed. To make sure your air duct system is free of the germs, dust and debris that aggravate asthma and allergies, professional air duct cleaning is a smart choice for your home or business.

Using our Rotobrush System that includes a HEPA vacuum, we are able to give your air ducts the thorough cleaning necessary to get you through the winter feeling healthy and comfortable.

Check the Furnace Filter

Before the start of the heating season, you want to make sure that your furnace filter is clean and clear so that it can handle the use it will see in the coming months. Often, the furnace filter is replaced at the beginning of the season, and your furnace filter needs to be cleaned frequently. Routine furnace filter cleaning helps to make sure that it, like the air ducts, is kept clear for maximum efficiency and performance.

Clean Blowers and Blower Assembly

The blower is one of the most important parts of the heating system to keep clean. Our HVAC technicians are able to check your blowers and blower assembly, test performance, and complete a thorough cleaning to get your heating system ready for the season.
