Scheduling regular home heating maintenance can save you money over time, as repairs to a neglected heating system can be costly. Regular maintenance also means that you can ensure more energy-efficiency, therefore lower heating costs, as well as excellent air quality in your home.
Residential heating problems are usually seasonal, and heating systems often need extra maintenance after being shut off all summer. Common home heating maintenance problems include:
- Loss of heat: You can lose power to your heating system due to a power outage, or an issue with the fuses. However, if the rest of your appliances are receiving power and working, it may be a specific issue with your pilot light or ignition system.
- Uneven airflow: Over time, your heating filter or blower can become dirty or blocked. This can cause air to become trapped, and to heat up too quickly, which makes the furnace shut off. Regular maintenance and filter replacement can prevent this issue.
- Uneven temperatures: If your heating is running fine, but some rooms still won’t heat up properly it may mean you have a draft, or other air circulation problems. This can be a huge waste of energy, as well as driving your heating costs up. If you can’t find the draft yourself, our experts can help you. Alternately, uneven temperatures may be caused by problems with the vents or filters, another thing our experts can identify and fix.
Another major thing to watch out for with home heating systems are Carbon Monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that is impossible to detect as it has no smell, taste, or appearance. Carbon Monoxide poisoning can cause seriously damaging health problems, and is fatal over time. Your home should have a functioning CO2 detector, and its batteries should be checked regularly.
If you have a gas furnace that is over 10 years old, there is a higher risk for Carbon Monoxide leaks. The gas may leak out through cracks in the furnace, which can sometimes be hard to see. If you have an older heating system that you are concerned about, our experts can inspect, repair, or replace it.
