The heating system is one of the most integral parts of a home. A typical heating system can last up to 15-20 years before needing to be replaced. However, throughout this time, heating systems can experience problems, which can shorten the life of the system if it is not properly cared for. Here are some of the most common heater issues.
It is recommended that heating systems receive regular maintenance at least once per year to ensure they are working at their most optimal performance. It is easier to get these regular checks during the summer.
Filters help remove impurities from the air and should be changed at least once a month. Dirty filters can reduce the efficacy of heat being pushed through the ventilation system.
Thermostats help regulate the temperature in the home. A broken thermostat can cause abnormal temperature fluctuations in the home.
A loud furnace is a sure sign that there is a problem with the heating system. Whether it is a loose screw, pan or a more serious problem, a noisy furnace is not normal.
Repairing heating systems can be costly, especially if some of the common problems aren’t addressed. For more on common heating problems, call AC Heating & Cooling Service Inc.
