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!

by Craig in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I called Twintech during the Covid 19 crisis because our furnace was broken and it was still very cold during the nights. Dave answered all of my questions by phone but wanted to come have a look but only if our family felt comfortable having someone visit during the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and was able to attend that very same affternoon.

He was very courteous and informative but most importantly he respected his and our safety by wearing medical gloves in our home and maintaining proper physical distancing. He reviewed the various options of the products that suited our needs going over not only price but quality of workmanship, warrantees and where the product was manufactured which were all important factors in making such a large purchase. You could tell that Dave had been in this industry for a very long time.

The installation was done by a fine young gentleman the very next day and we now have a toasty warm home to ride out this crisis in while humming along at 96% efficiency!

I would recommend this very professional, small family business for anyone in need of HVAC equipment or maintenance.

by Lucy in Markham on Twintech Heating and Cooling

My special thanks to Twintech teams! They had replaced my furnace and A/C, and installed a new humidifier for me 2 weeks ago. Dave, the sales manager, not only provided me with an honest quote on the best HVAC products with best quality and warranties, he also arranged portable heaters for me and sent supporting docs to energy company for energy audit. Above and beyond service!

Greg, Grant, Mitch had worked tirelessly and professionally to perform the HVAC installation. They worked with professional tools, and performed proper measurement readings after installation. They are very patient with all my questions, and very pleasant to communicate.

Great work guys! This company sure knows their products and they stand behind their services. My home comfort level has improved! I am glad that I can support an ethical and honest local family business.

Professional, flexible on price and delivered on time...well done. All you can ask for when getting a new furnace.

by nicole.el.thorn on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The work was done quickly and professionally. Workers were really polite and easy to work with.
Product works great!

by Gary in London on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Furnace broke down on a Wednesday, shopped around for prices and Friday Twintechs name came up from a referral from my wife's work. Called Dave 11 am, he came over around 1 pm. Gave me a very good price, I accepted. The guys were there two hours later to take the old furnace out and install the new one. All finished by 6:30pm. Finally heat.
They were very pleasant and helpful. As a result we are doing our A/C later this year with this company.

by Shawn L in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

After some extensive research, we settled on Twintech for our new furnace. The service - from Dave's initial visit - through to the installation was absolutely fantastic.

Dave was super-patient with our many questions, did not try to "up-sell" us into buying things we don't need, knowledgeable, friendly and all-around an excellent Advisor.

I've forgotten the names of the installers but they were superb as well. They showed up on-time, did all the work with no mess or intrusion, removed the old furnace and installed the new one in one day; all with no impacts to our day-to-day life.

I cannot recommend Twintech enough, especially over any of 'bigger guys' who tried to sell us a bunch of thing we don't need. Twintech were fantastic and my wife and I are very pleased with our purchase.

by Stephen from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

From the minute I met Dave and discussed my new furnace needs I knew I was in good hands. He was patient, knowledgeable and very professional through the quotation process.

Grant and Greg did an outstanding job on the install. They did a great job of explaining the defects with my old furnace. The quality of the installation was excellent and the attention to detail was on another level. The old adage “You get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true as I feel I received great value, skilled expertise and high quality customer service. I highly recommend Twintech for all your heating and cooling needs.

by Arthur on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Glad to have found a not-too-big local firm that provided the needed expertise, quality workmanship, and competitive pricing as well. In and out in one day, removed the old units, did a nice job installing all of the new units, and left no debris. Even have a service contract that far outshined the big company offerings. Would definitely recommend them.

by Leriksen on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Appreciated a quick response to my request. Dave and Greg were very professional and made the experience seamless.

by petesalmon938 from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional through the entire process. Installation and removel was done on a sloppy winter day, they put down runners on the floors and stairs and when they left, there wasn;t any sign of someone being in our house. Furnace works great as promised.
