It is important for you to have a clean and clear air supply for your home. This not only helps to keep your HVAC system operating smoothly by removing any potential blockages, but also ensures you do not have to breathe in nearly as much dust, allergens, and other unwanted particles. Improved indoor air quality is even more important when you or someone you love suffers from asthma.

Most people know that their HVAC system is what is keeping their home cool in the hot summer and warm during those cold winters. What most people do not realize, however, is the major role their heating and cooling system is playing when it comes to improving their indoor air quality.
A common reason that many HVAC units create odors is that homes are built very tightly today, often without the necessary ventilation. This causes the unit to run out of air for combustion. This can be the leading cause of foul HVAC odors for many homeowners, which raises concerns about indoor air quality.
Another indicator of an indoor air quality problem is the smell of dirty socks. Although this smell may be coming from the air conditioning unit, it is not actually the unit that is the problem. Most likely, organic material has not been heated to a high enough temperature to prevent its growth. In most units, the heat exchanger kills the organic material, but those with heat pumps do not reach those temperatures. When the spores and mold are released into the air through the heat ducts, it produces poor quality air. An HVAC technician from BTU Control can diagnose the problem and recommend solutions.
Make sure to replace the air filter according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Let BTU Control inspect your HVAC system annually to look for faulty wiring, loose or worn belts, and general wear on the unit.
By having an annual service, you will have peace of mind that you’ve done what you can to make sure your HVAC unit is ready for the seasons ahead.
The HVAC unit in your home is one of the most-used appliances, and it’s inconvenient and uncomfortable when it isn’t working. Fortunately, it’s pretty good about giving signs when it needs servicing. One of the key things that many homeowners notice is bad aromas coming from the unit. An odor problem doesn’t necessarily mean that the repair will be expensive. It could be a dirty air filter or condensation which has created mold in the unity.
When troubleshooting the smell, use your other senses as well. Listen for banging or knocking. Look for excess water on the ground or other liquids which don’t belong. Many times, the smells are not dangerous, just indicative that your system needs service. However, some smells, like rotten eggs or gas are more serious. If you are experiencing an electrical, burning odor, or gas smell, turn off the unit and call BTU Control right away.
