As the temperature starts to get colder in Elmhurst, there are some things that you can do to keep your heater working all winter. Beyond replacing your old windows and increasing your home insulation, here are some things you can do to keep your home warm this winter season.
One of the most common causes of heating trouble is not changing the filter. Homeowners should change the filter to prevent clogging and keep the heat from moving into your home by blocking the airflow. Not changing your filter can make your heater overwork and cause it to break down. In addition, this can also contribute to your home’s safety hazard. Call our HVAC contractors to help you change the filter.
Are you planning to go on vacation this holiday season? Before leaving your home, make sure that your HVAC system is well maintained, for that, call our HVAC contractors. If you’re leaving pets at home, you can program your thermostat and keep your home set at 15 degrees to protect your home. It will also save your energy and lower your utility bill.
There’s no need to keep your home completely heated while you are away, and when you arrive home, you should not turn the thermostat as high as it can go. Doing this can increase the chances of heating system breakdown and lead to costly heating repair.
It is always best to schedule heating maintenance every year with professional heating companies. At 24 Heating & Cooling, we can inspect your heater to ensure that it is ready to take on the cold that Elmhurst brings. We’ll help you with the heating repair or any furnace service that you will need.
