Keeping Your Family Safe

One of the most important jobs you have as a homeowner is to keep your family safe. The best way to achieve this kind of home security is by working with HVAC professionals. Before something goes wrong with your system is the best time to call a company that does heating repair in the northern suburbs of Chicago because an unmaintained system can be a health hazard to you and your family without you even being aware of the problem.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE

Whether your existing system is an older, less efficient furnace or a modern Energy Star system, annual maintenance is a must. For the older systems, parts will wear out and can cause problems. Newer systems have modern technology built into them to create high levels of heating efficiency, but like most things technology, they need to be looked after regularly. To provide your family the safety and warmth they deserve, work with a high-quality HVAC company to have regular inspections of your system. By working with a professional HVAC service, you will be providing your family with the warmth and safety they deserve.

You will also end up saving money in the long run by paying for HVAC professionals to inspect and repair your heating system on a seasonal basis. If you ignore your home’s heating system, serious problems may begin to occur over time. Even a small issue with your heating system could end up resulting in a major problem that costs a significant amount of money.

GV’s Heating and Cooling is certified by the National Comfort Institute (NCI) as Air Balancing Technicians. Air balancing is the process of testing and adjusting your system to deliver the right amount of air to each room in your home. This process includes a number of related tests to help us determine the performance of your air conditioning and heating system and subsequently offer recommendations to correct existing issues and optimize your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.

PREVENT HVAC EMERGENCIES

Serious emergencies with your gas furnace or any other heating system in your home can result in an extremely dangerous situation for you and your family which is why it’s essential that your HVAC system is properly functioning. Carbon monoxide (CO) is created when fuels like gas, oil, wood, etc. are burned and also produced by idling cars. If an appliance is malfunctioning or a vehicle left running in the garage, the poisonous gas can be emitted into a home. CO can’t be seen or smelled which is why a number of people die accidentally from CO poisoning each year.

GV’s Heating and Cooling can help by installing an NSI 3000, a professional-grade, low-level CO monitor that is only available through select HVAC and plumbing contractors. The NSI 3000 lets you know if there is a problem before it reaches a dangerous level, long before store-bought CO detectors would even begin to work. GV’s HVAC professionals can help determine how many monitors your home needs and where the best placement would be. Contact us for more information about how to best protect your family.

 

OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS

Despite best efforts, inside air may cause breathing problems, especially for people with allergies and asthma. Indoor air quality can be affected by mold, tobacco and wood smoke, dust, pet hair and dander, as well as strong odors from things like paint, perfume, and hair spray. Fortunately, a well-trained HVAC contractor can help address filtration and ventilation issues in your home.

GV’s Heating and Cooling is an authorized dealer for IQAir which offers a widely popular whole-house air purifying system called the Perfect 16 from IQAir. This IQAir product uses high-performance, high-quality filters and has the highest efficiency for filtering contaminants from the air being circulated in your home. IQAir is a Swiss-based company that provides actual claims for their products. The performance of each installed unit is scientifically validated by the company and its authorized dealers.
