Ways to Help Avoid Heating Repairs

Here are some suggestions to help you avoid possible heating repairs this winter:

Don’t Ignore Strange Sounds or Odors

When problems develop with your furnace, it will give signs that something is amiss. Typically, these signs come in the form of strange sounds and/or strange odors. Ignoring the signs that something may be wrong with your furnace is not a good step to take; it can put your system at risk and, if there are problems, they will not improve on their own. If you hear something odd or smell something off, call for a technician.

Schedule Fall Maintenance

Your furnace works hard during the winter to keep you warm. It is normal for wear and tear to develop, and for dirt and dust to get into your system. When your furnace operates each season without the benefit of maintenance, this build-up and wear compounds, reducing the efficiency and performance quality of your system. The tune-up your system receives during a maintenance appointment is integral to the system working optimally, so it’s important to schedule it annually.

Change the Filter

The air filter in your system needs to be changed about every 3 months. When it isn’t changed, and left in your furnace for an extended period of time, it can clog up. A clogged air filter can restrict the airflow in your system and fail to block dirt, dust and debris from entering your system as it’s supposed to. Changing your air filter on a timely basis can help you avoid multiple problems.
