Make Sure Your Home Heating System Won’t Break Down Unexpectedly

Your home heating system works hard to keep you and your family comfortable during the winter. Heat pumps and furnaces require regular maintenance and occasional repairs. Having a plan can help you to make sure that your home heating system does not break down at the time you need it the most.

Check your home heating system now to help avoid untimely breakdowns later.

Do a Test Run

Pick a comfortable day and do a test run of your home heating system. Set the thermostat to a temperature about 8 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than it currently is in your home. Make sure  all of the air vents are open.

Turn on the heat pump or furnace. Walk through your home and feel the air coming from the vents. If the air is not warm or if you smell strange odors, you may need repairs. If you hear any loud or unusual sounds, the system may need servicing.

Replace the Air Filter

A furnace or heat pump system will not be efficient with a dirty air filter. This is a simple maintenance task most homeowners can do on their own. Check the owner’s manual to make sure you use the correct size of replacement filter. If you are unsure of what product you need or how to install it, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians can help you.

Schedule a Tune-up

Furnaces and heat pumps have hundreds of mechanical and electrical parts. Each of these parts must be working properly. Before it gets cold outside, schedule a system tune-up with your HVAC technicians.

Technicians will be able to test for dangers such as carbon monoxide leaks. They can also check for worn parts that could break down within a short amount of time. If the HVAC technicians do discover a problem, there will be plenty of time to arrange for dependable repairs.
