Preparing Your Air Ducts for Winter

The air is chilly, and snow is on the way. You’ve already checked your tires, cleaned the gutters, and had your furnace tuned-up. But as you relax on your couch, enjoying the warmth of your home as you turn on the heat for the first time this winter, a strange, inescapable smell fills your house. Here are the steps you need to avoid this fate from becoming your own.

1. Clean Your Filters

While regularly cleaning/replacing your filters might seem obvious, it’s one of the easiest things to forget about, especially during the holiday season. Make sure to add this to your “to do” list, right underneath baking cookies and mailing out that last present.

2. Clean Your Ducts 

The biggest contributor to unwanted smells is a dirty duct. Hair, dust, lint and dirt can contribute to the smell, but there are much worse things. Mold, mildew, sitting water, or presents left behind from animal visitors can react negatively to heat, causing impurities in the air, and a bad smell.

3. Schedule Regular Maintenance

Finally, what better way is there to avoid any sudden emergencies or unwanted scents than regular maintenance? With a team of experts in charge of keeping your HVAC spotless and running like a dream all year-round, you can keep your time and energy focused on what matters most during the holidays.
