Taking Care of Your Heating System This New Year

Maintaining your heating system this New Year is important for providing a safe and comfortable environment for you and your family. Proper maintenance of your heating system can help prevent costly repairs and ensure the system runs efficiently throughout the winter. Here are some tips for maintaining your heating system this New Year.

Check and Replace Your Air Filters 

The air filter in your heating system should be checked and replaced every month. A clogged filter can reduce the efficiency of your system and cause it to overwork to provide the same amount of heat. 

Regularly Check and Clean Vents

Make sure to check and clean the vents and registers in your home on a regular basis. This will help to ensure that the air is evenly distributed throughout the house, which will help increase the efficiency of your system. 

Have Your Heating System Professionally Inspected 

Have a qualified HVAC professional inspect your heating system at least once a year. This will help to identify any problems with your system before they become more serious and costly to repair. 

Schedule Regular Maintenance 

Schedule regular maintenance for your heating system. This will help to extend the life of your system and keep it running efficiently throughout the year. Following these tips will help to ensure that your heating system is running efficiently and safely this New Year. If you have any questions or concerns about your heating system, contact a qualified HVAC professional for assistance.

Signs That Your Heating System Needs Attention

Listen to your heating system this New Year and don’t ignore its problems. Sometimes an issue can be replaced with a simple repair. If you wait to fix it, you can end up dealing with a more expensive and extensive project. Here are a couple of signs to keep an eye out for.

Higher energy bills 

If your energy bills have been steadily increasing over time, this may be a sign that your heating system is losing efficiency.

Strange odors

If you smell a burning odor or a musty smell, this can indicate a problem with your heating system. 

Noisy operation

Unusual noises, such as banging, rattling, or squealing, are indicators that your heating system needs to be serviced. 

Age of the system

If your system is 10-15 years old or older, it may be time to replace.
