Winter is here, and you need to make sure your heating system continues working as the temperatures drop. If you’re experiencing any of these common issues and need heating repair in Montgomery County, Chud Air Conditioning and Heating can help.
Dust and dirt build up
Changing your air filters is the easiest thing you can do. You want to make sure the systems are able to run properly without dust building up.
The thermostat doesn’t work
The easiest way to see if your thermostat is working is to test it. If the heat isn’t running properly or takes too long to start running, you may have a problem. Try replacing the batteries in your thermostat and resetting it, and if it still isn’t working, you may have a bigger problem.
Parts of the house aren’t heating
If you’ve already cleaned your air filters but heat still isn’t being distributed evenly throughout your house, it could be a problem with the ductwork. Get it checked for any leaks.
Not keeping up with maintenance
You probably don’t check your heater in the summer, but you should. If you haven’t given your heater any thought before you turn it on in the winter, you may get an unpleasant surprise when it doesn’t work. Getting your heater checked out regularly will ensure that it will work when you need it.
Pilot light problems
If the ignition and pilot light doesn’t work properly, your heater isn’t going to work right. Check to make sure the pilot light is on and make sure it stays on so there isn’t a problem causing it to go out.
Not cleaning your heating system before turning it on
Your heater system will collect things like mold, dust, and dirt when it’s not being used during the spring and summer, and you don’t want to have unclean air pumped through your house when you turn the heat on. Having your HVAC system cleaned and replacing your air filter will make sure you’re only getting clean air flowing through your house.
Frequent heater problems
Heaters aren’t made to last forever, and sometimes it’s just time for a new one. If your heater is very old and problems are becoming more frequent, it may be time to invest in a new one to keep your house warm in the winter.
