What To Look For In Your Heating System At The End Of The Season

share

The days are getting longer, the sun is getting stronger and it’s almost time to shut down your heating systems for the season. What a great feeling, right? Well, before you can say goodbye to your furnace and radiators for a few months, there are a few things you need to be on the lookout for. After all, if you disregard the following, you could have some major problems on your hands when temperatures dip down again toward the end of the year:

  • Clogged or Dirty Filters: this can result in poor air and comfort problems. If you’re dealing with either of these issues right now, it’s best to check on your filters now. Don’t wait until next year to clean or replace them.

  • Airflow Problems: fan motors that produce inadequate airflow can lead to poor heating control or even overheating.

  • Thermostat Malfunctions: have a thermostat that doesn’t seem to be working properly? Not only can this lead to discomfort now, it could lead to problems with your air conditioning system too, if your heating and cooling systems both operate from the same thermostat.

  • Ignition Control & Pilot Light Issues: if you ignore these problems now, guess what — you likely won’t have heat on the first cold day this fall or winter. Be sure to tackle these problems before you shut the system down.

  • Duct Problems: have inadequate air sealing or insulation surrounding your air ducts? This is another issue that can affect both your heating and cooling systems and could cause unreasonably high energy bills for the remainder of the year.
