When it comes to your heater you want to make sure that it is working properly and that you are not having any problems with it. A cold house in the fall is not fun. How can you help your heater this fall when you first turn it on so you do not have more problems when it gets even colder? Hal Mechanical wants to help you understand a few things that you can do to help your heater so it works the best it can.
Be Smart with Thermostat Settings
Winter months can get pretty cold but with the cold months, you do not want to have your heat cranked up super high. You don’t want to turn your heat off while you were gone and then turn it up high when you get home. All that will do is hurt your power bill because your heating will not be energy efficient. A great thing to keep in mind is to have your thermostat temperature 10 to 15° above what your home temperature is already. This can help keep your heater more efficient and still warm up your house.
You might not think that upgrading your thermostat is necessary. But if your thermostat is over 10 years old it is time to update it to a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat. This will help with your heat control. You can always ask a professional to help you find the right thermostat for your system. So, everything will work properly.
Heating Tune Up Maintenance
It is always important to get an annual maintenance check-up on your heater. Doing this can ensure that your heater will be running smoothly for the winter months and you will not have problems while it is cold. With a maintenance check, they can catch and fix any problems you’re having with your heater.
Bundle Up in Cold Weather
Instead of cranking your heater up high during the winter months. Layer up, meaning put extra clothes on, extra socks, and have blankets in your house. Instead of having summer clothes on in the winter in your home put extra layers on so you still can stay warm. This way you do not have to have your heater cranked up as high during the cold months and this will help your heater and your heating bill.
