If you find that your relationship with your heater feels a bit cold, it’s time to give your home heating system the TLC it deserves. Whether you’re looking to get a head start on the winter months by raising your house heat, or you’re diving headfirst into a cold snap without too much preparation, your heater always has your back, so it’s time that you had its. Like any other home appliance, making sure your heating system is regularly checked out and maintained is important to the longevity of the system itself, and can help make sure you’re not given the cold shoulder by your HVAC unit when the winter months roll around. That’s why it’s important to set aside the time to check up on your heater before the colder months really settle in. That way you won’t be left on the curb when your heater decides things aren’t working out.
Like the Way You Look
While no one jumps up and down at the idea of taking a trip into the basement, taking a good, long look at your heater is the best way to figure out if its time for a proverbial facelift. Are there cracks on the outside of the heater, or obvious rust? Do the pipes have buildup? Are the tubes straining to keep old connections alive? This can all be signs that your heater needs a spa treatment. If your HVAC system is showing its age, odds are the inside isn’t doing much better. That’s why you should make sure to clean up the outside of your heater regularly, whether this means removing dirt and grime or giving oe check-up for your under-the-weather HVAC system.
Doing All the Work
It takes two to make a good thing work, and if your HVAC unit is pumping hot or cold air into a leaking house, you might be working it to death. Making sure your home is properly insulated during the summer and winter months can not only lower your energy costs, but it can also take some of the pressure off of your HVAC system. Not only can you insulate the pipes leading from the unit, but you can also check windows and walls for cracks and air leaks. If you feel a noticeable breeze in any area, or if a candle or match held up to the joints moves, it’s time to do some general repairs. Insulation is an investment for any season and it can help keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. And your HVAC system is sure to thank you when it can finally take a breather.
