Heating’s Gone Wrong
Top 3 Most Common Heating Problems
1. Broken Thermostat
If your thermostat breaks, it could quickly cause your house to get uncomfortably hot or cold, and it often leads to energy waste. That is the moment you will most likely need to call a professional to have it replaced.
2. Clogged Air Filters
If your filters are dirty, the furnace will have trouble circulating the air. Dirty air filters reduce airflow within the system, which makes your system work harder. The hard your system has to work, the less energy efficient it is. That leads to higher utility bills.
The prime step in creating a healthy indoor environment is changing your filters regularly. If you do not use your HVAC system daily, set a reminder every three months. That will ensure your system is staying clean.
3. Improper Maintenance
Regular maintenance can improve your system’s functioning. Your system will last longer, and you will not have to be worry that it will surprise you with some malfunctions during cold winter days.
If you fail to schedule inspections or clean the burners, air filters, and air ducts, you may end up with a broken or poorly functioning heater. But, if you want to keep your warranty valid, calling regular maintenance of the furnace is a step you should not skip.
