Prevent Winter Heating System Failure


All of us here at Plumbing Utah Heating & Air wants to wish you a fun and safe Halloween. As we all make final preparations for this spooky holiday, we are reminded that winter is right around the corner. We are willing to bet that by this time, you have had to turn on your furnace at least once or twice by now. We are in that weird stage where you need to defrost in the mornings and your air conditioner during the drive home. Our HVAC technicians are working hard to help ensure everyone is ready for our first big snowstorm. Below are some items you can take care of to prevent your home or business heating system from failure.

Check your air filters.

It is easy to forget about your furnace because you didn’t need to use it all summer. Remember that a bit of prevention can save you a huge bill if your furnace breaks during the winter. It may be a good idea to buy your filters multiples at a time. That way, you always have a few handy when the time comes to replace your air filter. A dirty filter can harm your indoor air quality. Perhaps even worse, a filter filled with hair, dirt, dust, and particles can cause your HVAC system to overwork and potentially overheat.

Schedule a Routine Furnace inspection

Right now is the best time of year to schedule a safety inspection and tune-up for your furnace. There are a couple of reasons for this. The most significant reason is the most heating, and air companies will be slower for the next couple of weeks. To keep their HVAC technicians busy, most furnace repair specialists will offer promotions and discounts. This means that savvy homeowners can save money by taking advantage of limited-time offers. The second reason why now is the time is that you can keep your warranty intact on your furnace by having a yearly professional inspection.

Test your Thermostat and Programming

You would be surprised how many calls we get to find out that a simple thermostat fix could have addressed the issue.
The most common culprit has to do with dead or missing batteries. Another reason why your furnace may not be turning on is because the programming has not been correctly set up. Remember that something as simple as changing the button from “cool” to “heat” could be a reason why your furnace isn’t working. Today’s homeowners are offered technical solutions that we couldn’t dream of in the past. For example, smart thermostats allow you to control your home’s indoor temperature right from your mobile device or tablet. This is ideal if you work away from home or are out of town.
