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!

Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!

We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.

After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. I’ve found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.

I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced

Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.

I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

We had a great experience. The guys who installed our a/c did a nice job. Cleaned up.

excellent crew, fast and efficient! Would call them again when I need a new furnace.

Professional, courteous and efficient, don’t need to say more than that! Use them you will not regret it.

TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.

Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!

I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
