HVAC 101: Awesome Cleaning Projects

HVAC systems are important in our daily lives, yet we often forget to take care of them properly (or clean them at least). You might think that you do not have the skills to clean them on your own, but there are still some things you can do in order to keep them running smoothly. 

Here are some of them: 

#01. Always check your heating and air conditioning equipment before the start of a new season. 

#02. Inspect and replace your air conditioning and furnace filters every month. There are many different types to choose from and they depend on your needs. 

#03. Most air conditioners come with a drainage hole on the base of their cabinet, right beneath their evaporator fins. The drainage hole needs to be kept clear in order for your air conditioning unit to work efficiently. 

#04. Keep your dehumidifier working properly by removing its housing, just make sure to let the unit dry completely. You should also vacuum every accessible crevice and surface. 

#05. Be sure to clean your bathroom fans at least once or twice a year. To wash it, take the cover off, use soapy water and clean the dirt off the fan blades with a toothbrush. Do not forget to turn the power off when you do this. 

#06. The flappers on your toilet should also be checked at least once or twice a year. If they are showing any signs of wear and tear, then you should have them replaced before they start leaking and wasting water. 

#07. You should also clean all your faucet handles. Remove them and clean their insides to keep their screws from corroding. Rust removers often do the trick (use them only when necessary). 

#08. If you have carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, their batteries should be replaced twice a year. While you are at it, you should also vacuum or dust off the detectors to keep them working efficiently. 

#09. If you have a fire extinguisher at home, make sure it is fully charged. Put it in a place where you can reach it easily and quickly. 

#10. Your windows and doors should also be checked annually. Inspect them and if it is necessary, caulk around them. This helps keep out heat and humidity during the warmer months and cold drafts during the colder months. It will also save you money on your utility bills all year round! 

These are just some helpful cleaning tips for some of the important parts of the home that help you live comfortably. If you have more serious HVAC concerns, then contact us today – our experts at Twintech Heating and Cooling will help you fix them!

See What Our Customers Are Saying:

by Linda, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

My 19 year old furnace stopped working when the cold weather hit in November, and I was left without heat. I interviewed several companies and found TWINTECH HEATING and COOLING to be very knowledgeable, quick to respond to my inquiries and very competitively priced.
Dave provided all of the information and pricing ahead of time and set up the appointment for the installation. Greg and Mitch arrived on time to do the installation and worked quickly and efficiently to complete the job.
After the completion of the installation, Dave followed up to ensure that everything was working well and that I didn't have any concerns.
Overall, this was a low-stress and flawless experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend TWINTECH HEATING and COOLING to anyone that requires a new furnace.

by Sean, Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Our 20 year old furnace broke down during the first cold weekend this past November and our usual HVAC company never returned our phone call. Their loss, missing out on a sale since we didn't want to spend much fixing an old furnace and our 40 year old air conditioner was also long overdue for replacement. We proceeded in obtaining three different quotes for furnace and air conditioner replacement, and proceeded with the one we received from Twintech.


Dave was friendly, knowledgable and accommodating to our schedule and provided with us with a price that fell in the middle of the three quotes that we had. We felt that the Amana furnace and air conditioner he quoted us on were the best products and value offered to us and felt most comfortable with the professionalism and reputation of Twintech.


Greg, Grant and Mitch were at our house for installation the day after we decided to proceed. The guys were friendly and informative, the job was completed efficiently and workmanship appears excellent. Our house is certainly much more comfortable with the new two-stage variable speed Amana furnace compared to the old clunker! And, we're looking forward to enjoying the new air conditioner once summer rolls around again. Thanks Twintech!

by Bill, Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We are very happy with our new furnace. The service was excellent the guys worked 6 hours straight through and there was no mess at all they took the old furnace box’s etc with them they then explained everything to us they were very helpful and pleasant , when we need a new air conditioner we know who to call!

by Ken, Bomanville on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The crew from sales to installation was very professional and had great attention to detail

by Tracy, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We couldn’t have been more impressed with Twintech - from our first service call with Mitch who took the time to thoroughly diagnose the issue with our furnace, to Dave who proposed a well thought out solution to meet our needs and finally Greg and team who acted quickly to install given we had no heat.


We did our due diligence by soliciting quotes from alternate providers and were shocked and disappointed by the aggressive and manipulative tactics used.


Twintech was honest in their approach, detailed in their product knowledge, reasonably priced, diligent in their follow-up and valued our business.


Well done Twintech! You made this a positive experience for us and our new furnace works beautifully!

by Skapoor, Ajax on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We recently purchased an Amana high efficiency furnace and humdifier through Twintech. The work was completed very professionally and the quality of the workmanship was high. There was some additional sheet metal work required to complete the installation, which they were able to complete themselves. Overall I am very pleased with the work and would highly recommend Twintech for a furnace replacement.

by Steve, Oshawa on Twintech Heating and Cooling

We were very pleased with every aspect of the work that was done. They were very professional and polite. They arrived when they said they would and job was completed on estimated time


We would highly recommend them to whoever needed a recommendation


We have a very large dog and they were very understanding and respectful of him being around

by Patrick, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The blower on our furnace stopped working leaving us with a cold house. Dave from TwinTech responded immediately to our HomeStars service request. From beginning to end Dave was nothing but helpful, friendly and professional, he did a great job of walking us through the quote and scope of work.


The replacement of the furnace went smoothly. The Guys did a great job, everyone was very friendly and polite. There were no hiccups, or unexpected costs. The only surprise was they left the work area cleaner than it was before they started.


Was a great experience with the whole TwinTech team. Its been a couple of months since the new furnace has been installed and its working great!

by Ed, Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I heard about TwinTech when researching new furnaces at furnaceprices.ca. After contacting them about my broken down furnace, Dave came to my house the next day to assess my situation and requirements for a new furnace. He recommended one that had stainless steel heat exchangers which sold me since my previous furnace had issues with a rusted secondary heat exchanger that had to be replaced. Dave also set me up with an appointment with an energy audit company so that I could take advantage of a rebate to help improve the energy efficiency of my home and get some money back. A few days later, Greg, Grant, and Mitch came to install the new furnace and remove the old one. When delivering and removing the furnaces, they were very careful not to damage my floors and walls, and even laid out red carpeting to protect the floors. They were very friendly and professional. The installation was completed in the time they said it would take and they cleaned up their work areas. Within a week, Dave called to follow-up to see how everything was going. I have already recommended them to several friends and family members who may need new furnaces soon.

by Fred, Toronto on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Twintech did a great job, from Dave the Sales Rep to the Office staff and The Professional Technicians who did the installation. They were professional, courteous, knowledgable and informative. From beginning to follow up we were completely satisfied with everything. Thanks Again. Sincerely The Laytons
