Air Filter Tips

Blog by: Dennis, President of Gopher Heating

It’s no secret that air filters are an important part of your HVAC system – they keep the air in your home pure, they keep you healthy when they’re clean.. the list goes on. Today we’ve got some tips to make sure you’re making the most of your air filters and HVAC system, and keeping you and your family healthy and comfortable.

 

  • Buy at least three filters a time and store them near your furnace. This will reduce any procrastination to change your air filters when necessary, and in turn you’ll be keeping the air in your home pure and healthy.
  • Always turn off your furnace at the breaker panel before replacing the air filter. It’s the easiest way to ensure your safety from any electrical shocks.
  • Your home environment and how often you run the heat or air can affect how dirty your air filter is. If you have no pets or few items collecting dust in your home, your filter will not get dirty as fast.
  • If you are unsure about what type, size, or style of air filter you need, or if you’re unsure how to change out the filter, always call a professional to help. They can show you the proper needs of your HVAC system and it’s air filters.

 

Filters are easily available for purchase on http://www.gopherheating.com. If you have any questions about your air filters or HVAC system, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

High Efficiency Furnace Regulation Postponed

Blog by: Dennis, President of Gopher Heating

Recently, Minnesotans looking to upgrade their furnaces had until May to do so without being required to purchase a furnace that was at least 90% efficient. If you were in the market for a new furnace these last few months, chances are you were urged to purchase sooner rather than later so that you would not be held to these standards and you could save some money. However, officials have postponed the regulation that would go in to effect in May, stating that the proposal would be revisited again in one year.

This is a plus for homeowners looking to do some home projects, including upgrading their furnace, as lower efficiency furnaces are often cheaper than the 90% efficient models. The downside, noted by environmental groups, is that this amendment would have saved billions of dollars in heating bills and reduced emissions that contribute to global warming.

So for at least another year, Minnesotans can purchase furnaces without any efficiency regulations.

If you’re in the market for a new home heating system or have questions regarding the energy efficiency of your system, give Gopher Heating a call at 952-890-3466 (Twin Cities) or (507) 665-3300 (Le Sueur, MN).

Furnace Safety

You’ve probably been running your furnace rather consistently for at least a couple months at this time. While you continue to use your furnace throughout these cold winter months, keep in mind these safety tips to keep you and your family safe and healthy!

  • The lifespan of a typical gas furnace is 15 to 20 years – give or take a few years. Maintenance and upkeep are necessary to ensure a long lifespan of your heating system.
  • The best thing you can do to ensure your furnace stays in working order is to schedule a maintenance check up once a year, done by a trained professional. A check up can do wonders for it!
  • Pay attention to your furnace. If something doesn’t smell or sound right – make sure to have it looked at.

If you need any assistance with the upkeep of your furnace or if you need a tune up (now $50 off until 12/31/12) call Gopher Heating at 952-890-3466 (Twin Cities) or (507) 665-3300 (Le Sueur, MN) and we’d be happy to help!
