5 Tips for Fall Cleanup for Heating and Air Conditioning – Gwinnett

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

We know it’s fall!!! It’s pumpkin flavored everything! And there’s nothing wrong with that.

It’s been a long, hot summer and becoming a long, hot fall, too! But now is the time to make sure the bugs and rodents don’t destroy your heating and cooling systems.

1. If you have a pesticide company, make sure they are spraying by (not on) your air conditioner outside and your furnace inside. We get a lot of bugs in air conditioners this time of the year.

Time to spray!

Time to spray!

2. In the winter, we get no heat calls and find rodents have chewed the wires on furnaces. They are looking to stay warm for the winter months and are migrating inside.

3. Also, clean out your fireplace flue! Birds might have nested in there! You don’t want to have a house fire due to birds.

4. Clean out your dryer vent. There is a brush specially made to go into a dryer vent and bring out the lent that has built up.

5. Change your batteries in your thermostat, carbon monoxide and fire detectors. If your furnace is over 10 years, have it checked for carbon monoxide leakage! We have a special camera that we put into your furnace to see any issues you may be having.

And, if you aren’t on a regular schedule, change your furnace filters!  It’s quick and easy.  David covered it in a video if you’re interested.  Look at our past posts!

Fall Furnace, Air Handler and Heat Pump Maintenance Tips

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Happy Fall Y’All!!!

Now that the cooler weather is upon us?! I’m not sure if this statement is true but today we are having a high of 74. Of course, this summer was more of a fall. Now we are moving into the winter and it’s time to get our furnaces/heatpumps/air handlers ready for the cold winter. We here at Wall Heating and Air Conditioning are offering our fall maintenance for $79 each unit!

Some things to consider for the fall from Gwinnett County Fire and Emergency Services:
As a rule, your alarms should be checked at least monthly and the batteries changed out twice a year. A good way to remember is to change the batteries in your smoke alarms when you change your clocks with the beginning or end of daylight saving time. Daylight saving time ends November 3rd this year.
Maintain your alarms regularly by keeping them dust-free and testing them as part of your home safety plan.
Place at least one smoke alarm on each level of your house, especially outside bedrooms and at the top of staircase landings. These areas give you the earliest alert about a possible fire in your home.
Replace smoke alarms that are 10 or more years old.

Carbon monoxide detectors have a life span. I found this out the hard way. Mine was going off every 60 seconds in the middle of the night…
