Winter Start-Up Furnace Inspection: Should I have my forced air furnace inspected?

We designed our start-up furnace inspection to put your mind at ease! Our winter start-up inspections take a deeper dive to look at what’s going on behind the walls of your furnace. Just like any preventative maintenance, we advise you to have an inspection yearly, and here is why.

Forced Air Furnace inspections are most popularly scheduled at the end of summer as the weather shifts and require the use of home heating systems to be turned on to keep families warm around the house.

All inspections are performed by qualified, trained, and experienced Mountain Mechanical licensed journeymen. These inspections help to extend the life of your heating systems by identifying preventative damage to critical heating components. If we uncover any repairs needed during your inspection, we will provide you a quote and answer any questions you may have.

There are several benefits to a furnace inspection, your safety is one of them.

3 Benefits of a Professional Duct Cleaning

Duct Cleaning: Should I Have Mine Done? Over time, it is natural for ducts, fans, and registers to accumulate dirt, dust, pollen, and particles. If moisture becomes present, there is potential for musty odors or mold to grow. Many people call asking questions about the process of duct cleaning; when to get ducts cleaned, allergies associated with air ducts, and associated costs.

Duct cleaning is done to remove dust, debris, and allergens from various heating and cooling system components of a forced-air system.  During our cleaning process, A Mountain Mechanical Tech, will scrub and vacuum out your ducts using a high-powered suctioning system. Supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers, heating and cooling coils, drip pans, fan motor, fan housing, and the air handling unit housing are all cleaned during this process.

It is highly advised to also have your dryer vents purged to remove lint build-up and dust from your drying system.

  • Health – Air Pollution: A clean system helps minimize air pollution, dust, and pollen, that is pushed into your home environment. Dirty ducts may be a cause of indoor allergies or have other effects on your health.

We suggest you consider getting a duct cleaning every 5 to 10 years.

The cost and time associated with a duct cleaning are hinged on the square footage of your home and the number of registers you have. The level of contamination, access to the heating system, and the request for dryer vent cleaning may also change the quote.
