Bright Ashaka, owner and president of Alpha 4 Real AC and Heating said home and business owners need to call in a heater furnace service experts to look at their furnaces as soon as possible.
“That is the first step. Throughout the summer, many home and business owners ran their air conditioners. Now that we are going into the cold weather, it is very important to have a professional check the system to ensure they are ready. This is essential,” Ashaka said in his office in Katy, Texas.
The Houston and Katy, TX heating and air conditioning specialist said he knows most homeowners may not consider this to be important but preventive maintenance is less costly that fixing breakdowns and damages.
“To most home and business owners, as long as the system turns on, everything is fine. The problem is that only a professional has the training and experience to spot problems in the system before they damage the entire system or become health hazards,” Ashaka said.
The 30-year A/C and heater service veteran pointed to carbon monoxide build up in the system as an example.
“Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas and it can kill residents if it builds up in the heating system without anyone becoming aware of it,” Ashaka continued.
Besides servicing all major air conditioning and heating systems, Alpha 4 Real AC and Heating is also an indoor air quality inspection and monitoring specialist.
“We can inspect and continually monitor the quality of the indoor air in your home or office. This way you know you are breathing clean air and not air with harmful gases and we have trained air conditioning technicians ready to come out and take care of all A/C and heating problems,” Ashaka added.

Ashaka advised residents to change their air filters regularly, have a professional clean the furnace, check and replace the thermostat if necessary, clean the vents and inspect the chimney, among others.
“Doing these simple things can go along way towards ensuring families and businesses enjoy the coming winter season and possibly avoid accidents and exposure to dangerous gases,” Ashaka said.
