Tips on Keeping Your HVAC WarrantyCalling someone for repairs is never fun to do. However, it is necessary, especially when your heating system breaks in the wintertime.

Keeping your house comfortable is essential for your health and the structural integrity of your home. So, having someone to help you fix your heater is the first step in maintaining that healthy and happy life.

Weird Noises

Strange noises are a way that your heating system lets you know it’s struggling. Sometimes it can be a substantial fix, but most times, it’s just a small repair. Buzzing is usually an electrical issue, while screeches mean parts are wearing out. Pops and bangs can be your heat exchanger, which is very common. By calling a professional, they will be able to assess the noise and fix it before any major repairs are needed.

High Bills

Your utility bills can be a great insight into what is happening with your heater. Having a higher utility bill can mean that the heater is pulling more energy than needed. This can be because of frayed or damaged wires, clogged filters, or it’s overcompensating for damage.

Overall, utility bills can swell because of the change in season. Naturally, the cost will go up because the heat is being used more. However, if the price has gone up substantially from past years, its time to inquire about your heater.

Tips to Get Your Furnace Ready for Winter

Keeping warm is as essential to you as it is for your house.

Broken Thermostat

A broken thermostat is a frustrating problem to have. However, some are battery-powered. If you have one that is battery-powered, changing the batteries might be all that has to be done.

But if that doesn’t work and your heater isn’t responding to it, then letting that go means a cold house. It also means you’re wearing down your furnace. Eventually, the furnace will give out and have to be replaced.

 

Short Cycle

This is where the furnace starts and stops a lot. It also means that the furnace isn’t running long enough to be efficient.

It can also mean that your furnace is too powerful for your house, which is a whole other problem.
