How Often Do I Need to Schedule Duct Cleaning?

Monday, January 16th, 2023

Duct cleaning is a regular service homes need, but it’s also the regular service that homeowners are most likely to forget to have done. The reason for this is simple: because ductwork is hidden from sight, it’s easy for people to forget about it entirely. They assume the ducts are fine, doing their job, and there’s no need to clean them. Why would they get dirty in the first place?

But duct cleaning is an important service because ductwork gradually accumulates dust, lint, dander, and other debris over time. You won’t need to call us for annual duct cleaning in Colorado Springs, CO, but we recommend you have an idea how long it takes before your ducts are dirty enough that they need this service.

Furnaces are among the oldest methods of providing central heating to homes, going back to when people would connect pipes to their coal and wood-burning stoves to allow heat to naturally rise and move to different rooms. The modern natural gas furnace is a much more intricate and precise device that uses a control board and different components to regulate its operation and keep it running safely. 

Since you probably use a natural gas furnace for your heating in Colorado Springs, CO, we’d like to share some knowledge with you about how it runs. We’re going to examine an important part of the furnace, the limit switch, and see how it helps the furnace perform its best and prevent safety concerns.

Why Your AC Isn’t Effectively Cooling the 2nd Floor

Monday, August 1st, 2022

If you live in a two-story house, you may encounter a common central air conditioning problem: the AC isn’t cooling the upstairs as well as the downstairs. Ideally, a central air conditioning system should provide even cooling around the house. But second stories present a tricky problem: heat rises and the upper floors have more heat for the AC to deal with.

This situation is often more complicated than just “heat rises.” There may be issues with your air conditioning system that are limiting it. If you want better cooling for the second floor of your house, a good strategy is to start with calling Peak Home Performance. We offer AC repair in Colorado Springs, CO that can fix problems like this, or we can replace an inadequate air conditioner with a better one. We can also find other solutions like zone controls and multiple thermostats.
