Chimney Venting Kit

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hellgate Plumbing wanted to share one of our most recent projects. We installed a chimney liner kit for one of our customers who has a Navien combi-boiler unit. This chimney liner kit is a great option when you have an existing chimney that is not lined. It’s good to have a flue for your boiler system, and this can be a way to do it.

Call us to learn more about chimney liner kits and to have one installed in your home today!

Cleaning Furnace Filters

Happy Friday everyone, and more importantly, Happy HVAC day!!

We wanted to share this picture of a furnace filter we discovered at a residential home. As you can see, this filter hasn’t been changed out in a very long time. With this much dirt and dust piled up in the filter, it could easily affect the efficiency and life of your furnace, along with affecting the air quality. We strongly recommend residential owners to replace their filters once every few months, or even once a month if you have several animals and lots of activity. Replacing a filter can be a easy thing to miss, but it can be a simple game changer for your furnace’s life down the road.

It’s awesome to see the on-going process for a York furnace, starting at the factory and ending in a customers’ home!!

Steps to a Healthy HVAC System

At Hellgate Plumbing, we want our customers to take any steps necessary to keep their HVAC system running properly during the cold months. Here is a list of things you can do to help increase your HVAC life expectancy:

1. Purchase a better filter: There are new, high efficiency filters that have the capability of grabbing the smallest particles, including bacteria.

2. Replace the filter frequently (every few months): If the filter looks dark or clogged, you should change it. It is possible it needs to be changed more frequently if you have pets (monthly). Checking the filter every month would be an easy task to ensure a longer life span for your HVAC system.

3. Carbon monoxide detectors: Having these in your home is an extra step you should take to keep your family safe. If you get one of these detectors, make sure you change the batteries once every year.

4. Heat pump maintenance: In order to keep your heat pump well maintained, make sure there is at least 2 feet of clearance around the pump. Additionally, remove any debris (leaves, twigs, etc.) found on or around the heat pump, and make sure the unit is level on the ground.

5. HVAC system strains: To avoid unnecessary strain on your HVAC system, please do not close more than 20% of your home’s registers.
