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.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process.
