1. Make sure your furnace is in tip top shape as demand for heating increases during the winter. Well maintained equipment is more reliable , saves energy and helps prevent costly breakdowns especially when you need it most.
2. Clean or replace furnace filters. Most systems have different types of filters which need to be replaced at different times. Standard 1" filters need to be changed every 1-3 months, media air filters every 6-12 months, and electronic air cleaners need to be cleaned every 6-12 months. Regular filter changes also helps to extend the life of your furnace while making it easier for your family to breathe.

Is Humidity A Problem In Your Home?

These first weeks of summer have certainly provided its share of humidity in the air leaving many of us feeling sticky and uncomfortable. For those of us lucky enough to have ac in our homes it helps to take some of the edge off, but is it enough?

"It's not so much the heat, as it is the humidity.

A phrase that rings true in almost every home. When it's muggy outside, it's muggy inside. And excess humidity can make you miserable. You can literally see, feel and smell it:
Indoor condensation appears on windows, mirrors and cold drinks
Your house becomes a breeding ground for insects
Wood floors, trim and wood furniture warp or rot
You experience uncomfortable sweating at normal indoor temperatures
Skin feels sticky in summer/clammy in winter
Rooms smell musty

High Humidity Can Also Cause Health Problems

Left unchecked, excess moisture can cause:
Mold and mildew to grow
Dust mites to thrive

These contaminants can trigger asthma, allergies and other ailments.

"As many as 10 percent of the general population and 90 percent of people with allergic asthma are sensitive to dust mites. Recent studies in the United States suggest that at least 45 percent of young people with asthma are allergic to dust mites."
-American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology
