Don’t let your heating system make you sick!

With winter fast approaching, coughs, colds and the flu seem well and truly on the cards. With this in mind, now is the time to make sure that your home is a haven and not the cause of a bad case of the sniffles.

1. Make sure your Reverse Cycle Air-conditioner filters are clean. We recommend a service at least every 12 months which includes a filter clean so now is the time to make sure that there are no nasties lurking.

2. Use the ‘fan on’ mode. By switching the fan on may use more energy, but it will also keep the air in your home circulating well.

3. Everyone has heard of a ‘Spring Clean’, now is the time to work on an 'Autumn Clean'. Removing excess dust, dirt and pet hair is one way to keep the air inside your home as fresh and clean as possible.

4. Monitor the humidity in your home. Too much will cause mould and mildew while not enough can cause irritation to your respiratory system. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers are relatively inexpensive and will ensure you maintain a health home this winter.

Not sure when you last serviced your system? Call us now on (07) 4633 7382 to schedule one now. Don’t leave it til it’s too late.
