The HVAC system is often a little sluggish for one reason or another when you try to kick it into operation. It may need a little service or heating repair. Your St Anthony home is just about to get back into workout mode this winter. These Minnesota winters of ours are known for the extremes in frigid, icy and snowy weather phenomena, so you need to make sure that you keep your furnace or boiler in good shape. Follow our suggestions below to learn what you should do now and throughout the winter to make sure that your home heating system stays fully functional.
In advance of the arrival of our worst winter weather, you should have your home heating system inspected by professionals like those that we offer at Aabbott Ferraro. We will come to your house, take a look at the entire system and recommend any necessary repairs. Your furnace having taken many months off, we will clean the furnace, changing its filters if need be. We will give you tips on how to keep your furnace clean through the winter. You will also be shown how to change the filters yourself if you are unsure of how to complete this task. It is usually a simple process, and filters are on the cheap end of the spectrum. Following a regular schedule of filter changes is a crucial component of keeping that home heating system working, especially during the winter months when it is in constant use.
If your home heating system suddenly goes out and if your furnace is not new, then chances are the pilot light has gone out. If you know how to do this safely, relight it and your home heating system should start to work like normal again. If you do not know how to relight the pilot light safely, or if you have an electronic ignition furnace (a newer type of furnace that doesn’t have a pilot light) and it isn’t working for some reason, then give the experts in home heating systems a call here at Aabbott Ferraro so we can come out and take a look.
Finally, make sure your thermostat is in good shape too. The thermostat is what tells your home heating system what the temperature should be inside your home. When your heat stops working, you might immediately think the culprit is your furnace, but it could very well be a problem with your thermostat. Keep an eye on this appliance as well throughout the wintertime.
