Spring Clean Your Utility Room

THE IMPORTANCE OF SPRING CLEANING YOUR UTILITY ROOM

HowOften Should You Replace Your Air Filter? • Homes withminimal foot traffic (single or double occupancy) and no pets or allergies: six to 12 months. • Family homes (three or more occupants) with no pets or allergies: three to six months. • Family homes with at least one pet or minor allergies: two to three months. • Family homes withmultiple pets or allergies: one to two months. In addition to changing the air filter, it’s important to schedule a routine inspection of your home’s HVAC system. This includes an inspection of the appliances themselves and any connecting ducts. Dust, dander, and mold can accumulate in the ducts and spread throughout the home, which can lead to health issues, including respiratory problems. A routine inspection will identify potential problems in your HVAC system. On top of that, you can get these systems professionally cleaned and maintained. These are simple steps that will keep your home’s air systems running smoothly for years to come. Plus, you’ll be ready for the summer months ahead!

The start of spring brings everyone’s favorite seasonal chore — spring cleaning! As you dust, vacuum, organize, and declutter, don’t forget about the one room that often gets neglected. This year, give special attention to the utility closet. The utility closet houses your furnace, boiler, water heater, A/C junction, and other similar large appliances. Homeowners often forget about these appliances because they are out of sight and out of mind, and this can cost a lot in the long run. Like all the other rooms in your home, this space needs to be kept clean. Dust, for instance, can be hard on HVAC systems. Over time, it accumulates in the HVAC intake and clogs the air filter, reducing its effectiveness and efficiency. This results in a short life span for your system, higher power bills, and a poorly heated or cooled home.
