Your home heating system is vital this time of year. You don’t want it to stop working when it’s freezing cold outside! We thought we would take the time to answer some of the questions we hear the most about home heating systems in Roseville. Here are a few of the ones we hear the most and the answers we usually give.
Q: What should I do on a regular basis to ensure my heating system continues to work as it should?
A: There are a few things that home heating systems need on a regular basis. You should be sure they are cleaned before you start using them for the season, and you should definitely be sure to change the filter on a regular basis (usually at least once a month). At the first indication of trouble, call us for help. It’s best that we take care of the problem right away so it doesn’t turn into a bigger one.
Q: Why do I always hear about filters in home heating systems? Why should I change mine on a regular basis?
A: The filter is probably the most important part of home heating systems. It is what captures dust, dirt and other debris and it helps to keep your heating system clean. Filters should be changed usually on a monthly basis, but sometimes that recommendation varies depending on the manufacturer. Get the owner’s manual out and see what your particular manufacturer recommends and then go from there.
Q: How often do home heating systems need a new filter?
A: See our answer to the question above. It should usually be changed on a monthly basis. If you are unsure of how to change the filter, give us a call. We can come to your home and show you how to do it.
Q: How often should home heating systems be inspected?
A: You should have your home heating system inspected on an annual basis: usually before the cold season. This is a great way to ensure your system is ready for the upcoming winter. However, we can come out any time of year to inspect your furnace.
Q: If I need a new home heating system, should I have it sized by professionals?
A: Yes. Home heating systems should always be professionally sized. If the system is too big or too small, it will increase the amount you spend on your heating bill each month.
