Common Mistakes That Can Cause a Heating Emergency
When the cold winds of winter are blowing, the last thing you want is to have a heating emergency. Unfortunately, we have seen a lot of customers who have made mistakes that have resulted in their systems breaking down. Below are four common reasons for heating emergencies.
- Not Having It Regularly Maintained – One of the biggest mistakes that many people make when it comes to their heater is that they don’t have maintenance done on it. Not only does maintenance keep it running well, but it also lets you know when there’s a problem.
- Not Keeping Your System Clean – A dirty heating system won’t just run inefficiently, it can lead to high electric bills and can cause it to break down. So you want to make sure that your ducts are clean and that you change the filter regularly.
- Closing Vents in Unused Rooms – Although you may think that this can help your system, it actually can hurt it and cause it to break down. Your heater is made to heat so many square feet in your home, and closing of vents can cause huge problems in your heater.
- Having an Outdated Thermostat – It’s better if you upgrade your thermostat to a programmable one. Not only will this help you with saving money on your electric bill but it also will help your heater run more efficiently and last longer.
Don’t wait until the winter season to service your heater or furnace. With a heating tune-up from our expert staff, you can enjoy improved performance and peace of mind knowing your system is in good shape. When those unexpected issues do come about, you can trust our heating contractors to provide you with detailed and long-lasting repairs that can ensure your comfort during those winter months.
Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
An important part of being a homeowner is proactively caring for your home. While Rhome may not be known for its freezing winters, you’re still going to want to ensure that your home is prepared for colder temperatures. Regular furnace maintenance and tune-ups have tons of benefits, including:
- System lasts longer – When you have your system regularly maintained, it’s going to last a lot longer because small problems are caught early, and the system is cleaner.
- Better Efficiency – When your furnace is maintained, it’s going to run the best it possibly can. This means that it’s going to be efficient which equals lower energy bills.
- Added Safety – One of the most dangerous things about a heater is the possibility of carbon monoxide. But when you have your heater regularly tuned up and maintained, leaks are caught.
- More Comfort – A furnace that is taken care of is going to run a lot better and keep your home warm and cozy.
We know that remembering maintenance can be tough. That’s why we offer convenient membership programs that take the guesswork out of regular care.
