A C and Heating Repair When you have allergies, you feel miserable throughout the day. It is one of the worst feelings in the world, and you dread the upcoming "allergy season". What's worse is that while you may have allergies to the irritants outside (i.e. pollen), you're typically only outside for a short period of time throughout your day. Instead, like most people, you spend all your time indoors. Well, did you know that the quality of the air indoors is usually at least 5 times more detrimental to your health as the quality of the air outdoors? That means you're literally basking your allergies in more polluted air than if you were to go outside. Doesn't seem right, does it?Why is your indoor quality so bad? Often it has to do with your HVAC system. There are many different facets of your HVAC system, and each can contribute to indoor air pollution in their own way. This, of course, will exacerbate your allergy symptoms. An HVAC expert would be able to come into your home and troubleshoot why you are experiencing allergy symptoms within your home, but you should also know what can be causing them so you can prevent an irritation in the future. AIR FILTERSAir filters are designed to filter out the elements you don't want to "get in" to your living environment. Those elements can be dander, pollen, dust, dirt, mites, etc. If your filters become dirty and/or non-functional, those elements can sneak in, and build up large amounts. That air that sneaks in with the nasty elements is then circulated throughout your house via your HVAC system, and now you have a pervasive problem for your allergies. It is important to switch out your filters, or clean them if they are reusable, frequently. The frequency with which you change out your filters will depend on the type of filter that you have and how quick the unwanted elements build-up on it. Cheap filters can also let a lot of the "nasty" elements into your living space because they do not have the technological design to do so. If you suffer from allergies, it is wise to upgrade from cheap filters to something like a HEPA filter which can trap up to 99% of unwanted elements. DUCT SYSTEMDirty, poorly designed, or incorrectly installed duct work can also let in pollutants that can aggravate your allergies. Leaky ductwork, in particular, can contribute to the production of mold, as well as let in dust and other particles.HVAC SYSTEMHVAC systems should be routinely cleaned at least once a year to ensure that the build-up of unwanted pollutants is not present within the system. During the inspection, it should also be verified that there are no inherent flaws within the system that is contributing to more build-up.

Three Types of HVAC Condensers

Furnace Repair Man The furnace is hot and every once in a while the burner will come on for a short time and then go off again. But the blower that should be running to circulate the hot air from the furnace to the house is not working. How can you fix that? It really isn't very hard.It does not matter what the fuel of your hot air furnace is. If the blower is not circulating the air through the heater then you are not getting warm. The function of the blower is to move the heat from the heater to the space that need to be heated.A few simple tests can tell you what your problem is. Do you have power going to the motor that runs the blower? If you have power going to the motor and it is very hot than maybe the blower wheel has come lose and it is stuck on something that is keeping it from turning. Try to turn the wheel to see if it is stuck. If the wheel is not hitting anything and just turns hard then the bearings of the motor are bad and the motor needs to be replaced. In some rare cases the motor has little tubes to the bearings and some oil can be worked into the bearings to free them up. This is a long a tedious process, but I have done it successfully a few times. If the wheel is hitting something, then try to see if it can be fixed. Sometimes the set screw will just come lose from the shaft and repositioning the wheel and tightening the screw will fix the problem.Sometimes power will be going to the motor and nothing at all is happening. Replacing the motor is then the only option. The worst case that happens and is one of the most common problems is for the hub of the blower wheel to brake off. This lets the inside of the wheel fall down on the motor shaft. The metal from the wheel will saw off the shaft of the motor rather quickly as it is spinning trying to run the blower. The result of this is a ruined wheel and motor. This gives a brief overview of some of the many things that may happen to your blower in your hot air furnace. I have encountered many other things over the years, but these are the most common problems. It will give you a few things to look for if you are having problems. Be very careful because many times the edges of the metal pieces are very sharp. You can be cut very easily when checking or handling these parts. I know and have the scars to prove it! Do not be in a hurry and be safe. Furnace Diagnosis
