Before cold weather arrives, have your heating system inspected by professionals like those at Aabbott Ferraro. We will come to your house, take a look at the entire system and recommend any necessary repairs. After a few months off, your system will likely require a few tweaks. For example, its filters will likely need to be changed. 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.

We can even come out and inspect your furnace on an annual basis to ensure proficiency every year. We will make sure your heating system doesn’t require any repairs and that it’s as clean as it should be. After all, a clean furnace works much better than a dirty one.

How is your thermostat? If it doesn’t seem to be working properly, it should be addressed as soon as possible. But don’t worry! This is usually a fairly easy fix. After checking the thermostat, if your heating still is not working properly, you should check your house’s air vents. Are all of the vents fully open? Are they blocked? Make sure they are all open and clear to ensure the warm air can blow out of them properly.

Next, turn on your furnace and check the air vents. Is warm air blowing out? If cold air or no air at all is blowing out, then it is time to give the heating and air conditioning experts a call.
If you still notice issues, you should call our heating and air conditioning company for assistance. We can send a technician to your home as soon as possible to check on things and to ensure your furnace is working as it should.

This winter, if your home heating system suddenly goes out and if your furnace is not new, the chances are your pilot light has gone out. If you know how to do this safely, relight it. But if you do not know how to relight the pilot light safely, contact the heating and air conditioning company you can trust; Aabbott Ferraro.
