A critical component of a heating/cooling system is the blower motor and fan. Essentially a large electric fan, the blower motor, and fan push heated/cooled air through the ductwork to maintain the room temperature set at the thermostat. However, if the blower motor is not working efficiently, it is costing the owner increased energy costs because both the motor is working harder and the air is getting distributed poorly or, in some cases, not all, throughout the home or business.
Even the best filters, changed regularly, cannot guarantee the heating/cooling system will be distributing clean air. Over time, dust and pollen build up on the motor housing, sometimes on the motor itself, and on the fan blades. This buildup reduces the motor’s efficiency and spreads that dust and pollen throughout the home or business. It can even lead to the motor overheating, becoming damaged, and needing to be replaced. That is why it is important that the motor and fan blades be checked and cleaned regularly as part of scheduled maintenance.
The technicians at Spot Free HVAC Services have the training and experience needed to inspect and clean the blower motor and fan. They will separate the blower motor and the fan, and use a gas duster or air compressor to clean the internal components of the blower motor itself and the fan blades. If the fan is very dirty, they will use a garden hose (outside, of course!) or even a cleaning fluid to get them clean.
