Ventilation Maintenance

Posted By Nigel Horonzy @ Apr 26th 2013 5:00pm In: Maintenance Tips

Proper ventilation throughout your home will help you and your family stay healthy and safe.  Many allergens, especially asthma, are aggravated by poor ventilation, and clogged ducts can easily present a fire hazard.  And just as importantly, you should regularly check appliances in your house for proper operations.  Dirty or broken appliances can cause dangerous Carbon Monoxide gas leak into your home!

 

Here's quick home ventilation checklists:

  • Check operation of windows and doors
  • Clean dryer vents and screens
  • Clean exhaust fan outlets and screens
  • Clean outdoor air intakes and screens
  • Clean air conditioning coils & drain pans
  • Clean dehumidifier coils & check operation
  • Clean & tune furnaces, boilers & hot water heaters
  • Clean & tune ovens & ranges
  • Ensure proper storage of fuel cans
  • Check for interior signs of rodents, bats, roaches, or termites
