Many people don’t realize the importance of maintaining a clean filter in there heater and ac units. Once your filter becomes clogged it lowers the air flow that you feel throughout your home. It as well makes your system work harder to maintain the temperature that is most comfortable for you. When your system has to work harder, that means your electric bill rises. There have been cases where a filter can get so clogged the system malfunctions and starts a house fire. So why not take the extra time to change your filter once a month. We recommend if you have multiple indoor pets to check it twice a week and give it a shake outside. You will notice you have better air flow and a more efficient working system. If you have any questions give Family Air LLC a call where “Your Comfort Is Our Responsibility”.

When you call Family Air for your yearly heater check-up, the highly qualified, trained, and experienced Tucson HVAC technicians will evaluate your system, identify any problems, and provide you with a detailed estimate prior to beginning any air conditioning and heating repair services. Regular check-ups can ensure that your system is operating at peak performance and can also save you money on your cooling and heating bills. They’ll also check to see whether the heater is emitting a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide.
Check Your Detectors
In addition, for homeowners who have their own carbon monoxide (CO) detectors (available at hardware stores), Family Air’s technicians will check the detector to be sure it’s still doing its job. If not, it’s time for a new one.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that is toxic to humans and animals when encountered in higher concentrations. A faulty heater can release CO, with deadly consequences.
Some signs of CO poisoning are headaches, nausea, tiredness, confusion and dizziness. But it’s easy to mistake these symptoms for something else, and by the time they’re noticeable, CO poisoning may be advanced. Better to check your heater and be sure it’s safe.
Time to Change Filters
Family Air’s owner, James Beard, also reminds homeowners to change their heater and cooler filters at least once a month. If filters aren’t changed often enough, the heater can crack – leading to carbon monoxide emission and poor performance.
Family Air’s technicians will go over all parts of your cooler or furnace. They’ll look for shorts, bad wiring, worn parts and anything else that’s wrong. They’ll get it into shape or, if it’s worn out, they’ll help you find a new one.
Be Safe. Call Today
Call Family Air at 399-5850 for a no-cost consultation. It will make your home warmer (or cooler), more energy-efficient, and safe from fires and CO poisoning.

There are many things that go into selecting a reputable contractor. First, are they professional? Do they have vehicles with their name proudly displayed? Are the employees wearing uniforms with the company name displayed? Are they registered with the Registrar of Contractors? Are they members of the Better Business Bureau?How long have they been in business? Do they have any complaints with these institutions? Get references.This is extremely important. Make sure they have plenty of insurance. No one would ever intentionally hire someone with the expectation of having to file a claim, but imagine that if there was a problem, and they didn’t have the right amount, if any coverage.What would you do? Whoever you choose, make sure that you feel comfortable with them.

Of the many items that tend to go unnoticed air ducts definitely make the list. While you do your regular spring cleaning of the garage, basement and yard, your air ducts are generally not thought of. Other than the occasional vacuuming of the vents most people do not realize that the air systems and vents play a large role in the air quality within their home.
When an air duct gets clogged it can place a strain on your heating and cooling system. This not only reduces the performance of the system but also its filtration. Heating and cooling can end up costing you far more than necessary. It also can wear out a good system before its time.
If your venting system is not cleaned periodically, the ducts can become obstructed with deposits of debris. This build up may contain mold or mildew. Having these things develop within the air ducts can create a hazardous situation for you and your family. Since the air ducts are meant to provide the circulation throughout the home having a buildup of mold or mildew can cause your family to have serious health consequences if not addressed. Your family could actually be breathing in these harmful spores causing breathing problems such as the development of asthma or bronchitis.
Another concern over a clogged air duct is the possibility of a fire. Ducts that are free of debris are safe but an air duct obstructed with a buildup of dust, particles, bacteria and fungi can create the right conditions for a potential fire.
Occasionally even in the cleanest of homes a rodent can get into the duct work and become trapped. Unfortunately you will not know this until there is an awful smell running through your home. This is harmful not only because there is a decaying animal in the vent but also your family is now breathing the nasty odor in. It will clog the duct and force your heating and cooling system to work overtime.
Liquids spill and often they happen around or near your heating vents. Also if you have pets they too can have an accident or two. Once liquid gets into the vents in can travel until it reaches debris and then saturate whatever is in the duct. This can cause the smell to travel through your home. The liquid combined with the debris can create unsanitary conditions.
These are only a few of the top reasons why you should clean your air ducts. Since they are a complicated web of vents, it is recommended to have a professional cleaning company come in and handle the task.
