Your heater is your best friend during the winter season. It’s necessary to keep it in an optimal condition to continue to keep your family, friend, and yourself warm and comfortable. Multiple things can go with your heater. If your home isn’t as warm as you want it to be, regardless of adjusting and readjusting the thermostat over and over again, you might want someone professional to take a look.
Below are a few common issues you would want to look out for.
Lack of maintenance
Spending all those dollars on the furnace will go down the drain if you don’t take care of its maintenance. It is advised to get your heater serviced annually to avoid inefficiency, breakdowns, or any other problems. Also, while servicing, the HVAC tech will be able to identify the early warning signs of an issue and take care of them on the spot before it could compound into multiple troubles down the road.
Clogging of filters
If you notice a lot of dust collecting on your furniture, the problem isn’t that you left a window open. There might be an issue with your heater; there could be an issue with your duct or your heater’s air filter. It is a must to change the air filter once every month. A clogged air filter stops the airflow and will drive up the energy bills and make your system work much harder to heat your house. This is crucial for the life span of your furnace and keeps it as efficient as possible.
Hearing a clunking or banging sound from your heater is not something you want to brush off. You might want to get it checked as soon as possible. As the heater ages, it experiences wear and tears on its mechanical components that might be necessary for the unit’s proper operation, including belts, bearing, etc. These parts prevent your heater from overheating and possibly causing a fire or some other issue. It is better to replace and repair the parts that are not working efficiently, hence optimizing the heater’s all over performance.
Issues with the thermostat
When you couldn’t get your home warmed according to your needs, your heater’s lack of heat is not an issue you would want to overlook. At times the thermostat might be the problem. It can run out of battery life or have an issue with the wiring and might require repair or replacement. The thermostat needs to work properly. Otherwise, you will have issues regulating the temperature, and your home might get too hot or too cold.
These issues might not look like a huge problem initially but might compound a bigger problem at a later date. It is better to get them checked before they cause some catastrophe.
