Are you having problems with your furnace right now? You have control over some of the problems, you just need to make sure you address them before they escalate. Today Hal Mechanical will talk about what you can do to stay on top of keeping your furnace in the best condition this winter.
Change Dirty Air Filters
A very common problem is that homeowners do not change or replace their air filters. Even though it does not seem like it is super important it is a very vital part of your HVAC to work properly. If the air filters are dirty the airflow cannot go through the filters as easily. You should be changing your air filters at least every three months.
Do Not Neglect Heating Maintenance
You can spend a lot of money when you buy a new furnace. Of course, it cost you to run your furnace also. But it is important that you do a regular maintenance check, every six months is preferred. You can get a lot of problems when you do not do a regular maintenance check. Things can start breaking down, which will end up costing you more money to have to fix your furnace. When you do regular maintenance checks they can detect the problems before they even start.
A Furnace Gets Old
Just like most things a furnace can get older and get wear and tear with age. Your furnace has kept your home warm for years but when it starts to get older it starts to not work as well and starts breaking down. The age of the unit will determine how much wear and tear it has and how often you have to get things repaired.
Furnace Pilot Light Burns Out
A pilot light is a small frame that will ignite and turn on your furnace which will then end up heating your house. When your pilot light does not light your furnace it cannot heat your house. to get your heat to turn back on you will need to relight the pilot light. If this is the case with your furnace called a professional to come and help you.
Clean Air Ducts for Best Airflow
You want to have good airflow throughout your whole house. To get that you need to have clean air ducts and not have anything backed up or clogged. A common problem is that people do not clean out their air ducts. When they are not cleaned out then the airflow becomes uneven and cannot flow throughout your house heating your house properly. If you have noticed this within your home, then you need to call a professional to come to clean out your air ducts so that you can get the best flow possible.
