In the winter it is important to make sure that the furnace is working properly. You will want to have it inspected anytime there is an issue with it. No matter if it is not heating correctly, you hear an odd noise, or there is an odd odor from the vents, make sure to contact us. Fixing an issue at the first sign can help to prevent further wear, tear, and damage to the unit. It will also reduce the chance of a costly repair bill, because the issue will not have gotten worse.
Check the Thermostat
With the HVAC system, there is more than just the furnace to inspect. You will want to have the thermostat inspected as well. If you are looking for a new thermostat, a programmable one will be an efficient and smart investment. You can program the thermostat for different hours of the day, as well as different days of the week. This is beneficial when you have the same work schedule. If the weekends are different, you can also set the thermostat to be adjusted for when you are home. A programmable thermostat allows you to lower the temperature when you are away, and raise it just before you arrive home again. You can also adjust the temperature with your smart phone for some models. This allows you to change it if your schedule changes suddenly.
The ductwork should also be inspected for any damage. If there is a crack or hole, the warm heat produced can escape through the crack. This will not allow it to reach the destination in your home. Another problem is that the furnace could be operating much more than it should be. This is because it is trying to produce the heat to keep the home at the desired temperature. If you notice any damage, make sure to contact us.
