Does the inside of your system look like this? This is a picture of the inside of an indoor air conditioning coil. This customer called me because his air conditioner was running all the time but did not seem to cool the home.
Since this indoor coil sits on top of your furnace it also drastically effects the efficiency and production of your heating system. This type of build up can cause your furnace to over heat multiple times a day. This shortens the expected life span of a furnace which results in more repairs and premature failure.
Often times this type of issue goes unnoticed since you cannot see it. All you know is that your heating and cooling bills seem to go up every year.
By now I am sure you are asking how this could have been avoided. In this particular case the furnace had a poorly designed filter rack. The customer would change his filter and once the system shut off it would fall over and stay there. This allowed all of the debris to go directly into the system for multiple years.
The cost of cleaning this coil, blower wheel and motor was over $600 due to the time effort involved to get it done properly. The cost of the filter rack replacement was under $150. The cost of a Furnace Tune Up from Fire & Ice Heating and Air is only $79. That’s not including the entire day he had to take off of work to allow me to complete the task.
Our seasonal Furnace Tune Up typically only takes 1-2 hours and can uncover minor issues before they become major issues. We make sure to arrive on time, neatly dressed, with a friendly professional attitude and always wear protective shoe covers to protect your home.
