As the temperatures start to drop as we usher in Fall later this month, it's a perfect time to make sure your heating system is ready for winter. Regular maintenance can make a huge difference regarding the performance of your system. If you keep it maintained, you are less likely to experience problems at the worst time -- in the middle of winter! Here are 3 tips to help keep your heating system running smoothly year-round:
1. TUNE-UP AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR - The best thing you can do for your heating system is to have a licensed technician tune-up the equipment at least once a year. This will ensure that it is running efficiently and if something is on the verge of breaking, we can repair it before it progresses into a major problem or a complete breakdown. A complete breakdown will most likely require a new system, which can cost quite a bit of money.
2. CHANGE/REPLACE FILTERS - Changing your filters regularly will also extend the life of your heating system. It’s an easy and inexpensive thing you can do to take care of your systems. The filters are there to protect your system from debris, dust and other things. If they get clogged up, they cannot do their job properly and your heating and air systems will have to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
3. DON’T BLOCK VENTS AND AIR REGISTERS - You should also make sure there is good airflow for your system. Make sure air vents and registers are not blocked by furniture and clean them occasionally to keep dust and debris from building up. This will allow your heating system to run efficiently and not have to work harder to keep your home warm.
