Is Your Northampton Heating System Ready for Winter?

You will rely on your heating system throughout the winter, so it’s important to make sure it’s ready for the cold months ahead. If you haven’t had your HVAC system checked out in a while, contact Chud Air Conditioning, Heating, and Duct Cleaning to schedule an appointment for a Northampton heating inspection.

Our Team Can Diagnose Problems Before Your System Breaks Down

An HVAC system usually doesn’t just break down all of a sudden. Typically, it will give signs that there is an issue that needs to be addressed. If you’ve noticed that your heating system cycles on and off frequently, makes loud and unusual noises, or doesn’t heat all the rooms in your home consistently, it may be in need of repair.

High utility bills can also indicate that there’s an issue with your heating system. If your bills are significantly higher than they were around this time last year, or if you pay a lot more to heat your home than your neighbors do, that may mean that your HVAC system has a damaged part or is nearing the end of its lifespan and is struggling to do its job.

The problem may be due to a dirty filter or a clogged air duct. If that’s the case, a simple fix may be all it takes to improve your heating system’s efficiency and get your utility costs under control. We can also check the wiring, heat exchanger, and gas pressure for signs of a problem. If your furnace is worn out and needs to be replaced, we can let you know and help you choose a replacement model.

How to Maximize Home Heating Efficiency This Winter

For many homeowners, the arrival of winter means a spike in utility bills, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some ways to keep your house warm and keep your Buckingham heating costs manageable.

Take Advantage of Free Heat

The sun can warm your house so you don’t have to use the furnace all day. Keep blinds and shades open when the sun is out to let its rays come in through the windows. When the sun goes down, close window treatments to keep heat inside and help the house stay warm at night.

Figure out Where Your House Is Losing Heat

Drafts around windows and doors can lead to significant heat loss and high utility bills. Check for leaks and seal them with caulk or weather stripping. Also look for leaks around the chimney and in other areas where there may be gaps in the ceiling. A home energy audit can help you identify areas where your home is losing heat so you can take action to control your utility bills.

Adjust Your Thermostat’s Setting

Keeping your thermostat set for the same temperature all the time can waste energy. Lower the temperature before you go to bed and use blankets to stay warm. Keep the temperature set a bit lower when you’re out than you have it when you’re home. If you invest in a programmable thermostat, you won’t have to remember to adjust the temperature manually every day.

Have Your Heating System Inspected

Routine HVAC inspections and maintenance can help you avoid a breakdown and an expensive repair bill. A technician can look for signs of damage and wear, replace parts if necessary, and perform other maintenance that may be required.

Chud Air Conditioning, Heating, and Duct Cleaning employs a team of professionals who have the right experience and training to service a variety of furnace models, including gas, propane, and electric types. We can also inspect and repair your water heater to keep it working this winter.
