To prevent running into issues with your furnace or heating system, be sure to schedule an annual tune-up with a HVAC professional. Although there is some cost associated with the appointment, it will save you in energy costs each year by ensuring your system is running at maximum efficiency. Another that will help you avoid heating repairs include changing your heating system’s air filter. Clean filters can prevent breakdowns and will save you money in the long run. Lastly, be sure to regularly clean your system. There is no need to pay for a technician to come out for a repair when the only issue with the system is a dirty motor!
If you do run into an issue with your system and think you need a heating repair, first be sure to check these simple fixes to avoid an unnecessary repair bill:
- Check your breaker. If your heating system won’t turn on, be sure to check your breaker to see if it has tripped. Too many appliances and lights on the same breaker may cause it to trip.
- Examine your thermostat. If your unit is battery powered, make sure that it has new batteries before calling the professionals for an appointment. Also, check to make sure that the thermostat is set at the right temperature.
- Check you vents. Be sure that all the registers in your home are open and are not blocked by furniture, rugs or other household objects.
