Troubleshoot home heating problems
If you do have a problem with your heat, first check your thermostat. Make sure it’s on the heat setting and that the desired temperature is set higher than the current temperature in the room. Next check your filters for excess dust and dirt. If your heat still isn’t running, check the circuit breakers. If the breaker for your furnace is tripped, flip it back and see if your heat comes back on. Even if that fixes the problem, you should call us. A tripped circuit breaker is often an indication of a bigger electrical problem with your heating system.
Prevent problems and keep your heat running efficiently with regular maintenance
One of the most responsible things you can do in regard to your furnace is to schedule yearly tune-ups. The best time is late summer or early fall, before the weather gets cool. A tune-up typically includes inspection, cleaning, lubricating, and repairing the working parts of your heating system. A well-tuned furnace heats more efficiently and breaks down less or never. Efficient heating means less energy is used, which helps your wallet and the environment.
Heating System Maintenance keeps your family safe
Yearly heating system maintenance not only keeps your heat running smoothly, it ensures your safety and the safety of your family. Furnaces burn gas, propane, or oil to create the heat that warms your home. When these gases burn, carbon monoxide is created. A furnace that is properly functioning will produce less carbon monoxide and vent it outside of your home. But if your furnace is dirty or not working properly, too much carbon monoxide is made and it may not vent outside like it should. Carbon monoxide gas is harmful to people, causing headaches, breathing problems, and in severe cases it can cause brain damage or even death. The best way to protect your family is to keep your furnace tuned up and have us install a carbon monoxide detector in your home. A carbon monoxide detector will alert you if the level of carbon monoxide in your home gets to a dangerous level.
