-- Forced Air Heaters: Tips on Cleaning
Every tool requires a thorough cleaning at regular intervals. Your forced air heating unit is not an exception. In fact, this is a must if you want the appliance to last long. Here are some simple tips worth experimenting in the matter.
How to clean forced air heaters?
Experience informs that one should clean a forced air heater at least once a year. You don’t need to approach a professional to do the job every now and then. Try the following DIY tricks before taking the appliance to a service center.
1. Clean the air inlets
This is the first thing you should do when cleaning a forced air heating system. You can use a vacuum cleaner for the purpose. Do not forget to disconnect the entire unit from its source of power before starting the process.
2. Open the access panel
This done, open the access panel and clean the inside. It is located by the return air duct. Unscrew it and vacuum the interior.
3. Take out the fan unit
Mark the wires which connect the heater with the fan and disconnect them. Slide away the unit from the heating system. Take away the fan from the unit and clean the blower. Use mild cleansers and soap to complete the task. Wipe clean the belts, motor and all other parts in the blower. A damp towel will be enough for the job.
4. Place it back
Cleaning the unit inside out, you can place back the panel in its normal position. Make sure that all the nuts and bolts are tight. You can wipe all the walls with a clean dry towel.
5. Make it a point to clean the air inlets
Cultivate the habit of vacuuming the air inlets every now and then. This will minimize the possibility of dust and dirt entering into the air filters. Negligence here will increase your energy expense. The heater will be forced to work harder to distribute the heat evenly.
6. Replace the air filter every heating season
The advice may sound repetitive. But, it is something a homeowner cannot afford to ignore. Know that it will play a vital role in expanding the lifespan of your forced air heater. It is always recommended that you should replace the air filters at the beginning of every heating season. Try to do it as often as possible if you use your air conditioner constantly. It is also observed that if you clean the air blowers once a day, you won’t have to worry about replacing the filters. But, as it is always said, prevention is better than cure.
Finally, always keep in mind that the product documentation is the most reliable source of information in the matter. It will have everything clearly spelled out. Read it as often as you can and get to know the appliance.
Maintaining forced air heaters generally do not require any specific skill. However, you have to be faithful in routine maintenance and cleaning. Don’t allow negligence spoil your hard-earned money.
