5 Questions about your heating system
5 Questions About Your Heating System Now that we’re getting through the winter you’ve been able to see how your heating system is holding up. Here are a few key things you can look at to get a gauge of how well it’s doing…
1. Is your home warm?
This is an obvious question, but the most important one!
2. Do you have uneven temperatures?
You may have one floor in your home that’s too hot, or too cold. Maybe a bedroom, office, or basement. These can be signs your heater isn’t working right, your insulation is faulty, or maybe you are in need of a service.
3. Are your bills extremely high?
Your bills are going to go up when it gets cold out, but are they higher than normal? A look at your energy bill could show you how much energy you are using compared to your neighbors. If your bills are extremely high, it could be a sign your system is running inefficiently. The more it works to do the job, the higher your bills are going to be.
4. Do you hear unusual noises?
If you are hearing gurgling or clanging coming from your heating system, this could be the sign of a problem. It’s best to keep an eye on your system, or call a professional to come look at it.
5. Is your system constantly cycling (turning off and on)?
If your system is constantly turning off and on, it could mean there’s an issue. Either the thermostat isn’t reading the temperature right, or your system is having problems running properly.
If you are seeing any of these issues in your home, you should contact a professional. There are still several cold months ahead, and you want to keep your home warm, and bills under control.
