Fall is here and winter is fast approaching, just like how Christmas decorations go up in the stores sooner than we would have thought, you may be turning your furnace on sooner than you had planned. Keeping your home warm and comfortable during the cold times of the year is essential to enjoying the winter season. Your home furnace provides an escape from bitter temperatures and cold winds, giving you and your family a most enjoyed retreat while sipping on hot cocoa and eating festive foods. To ensure that your home remains a place of comfort and enjoyment, make sure that your furnace is in good working order before the cold temperatures arrive.
Even the most reliable furnace can come across a few issues that will leave your home feeling a lot cooler than you desire. Common furnace hiccups can usually be repaired fairly easily by a professional HVAC technician, but if you do not take proper care of your furnace throughout the entire year, you may run into bigger and more expensive repair issues. Pay attention to your thermostat, although it may seem like a small and insignificant piece of equipment, it can cause a great deal of damage if it is not working properly. When you set your thermostat to a desired temperature, pay attention to the length of time it takes to reach the set temperature. A faulty thermostat can result in burning your system out.
HVAC Home Air Filters
Another area to pay close attention to this winter season is your air filters. Like most home owners, you probably kept your air conditioner blowing steady through the summer. If you failed to change your air filters out after summer was over, chances are they are pretty dirty. A dirty air filter will ultimately become clogged and result in poor air floor and comfort issues. Dirty air filters slow the air flow down that is being pumped into your home, resulting in the desired temperature on your thermostat to possibly never be reached and keep your furnace running constantly.
