As professionals in the industry, we at Metro Express Service know just how much our customers rely on their homes’ heating systems: particularly during the bitter North Texas winter. There are hundreds of things that can go wrong with the average furnace. However, there are a few extremely common heating and furnace problems that can affect your home system’s performance.
Most manufacturers recommend that you replace your system’s filters every month. In fact, this is probably one of the most important maintenance issues for home furnaces. A clogged filter not only restricts airflow, it can force your unit to overwork itself in order to continue circulating warm air. This puts extra strain on machinery, shortening its lifespan, and can drastically reduce efficiency.
A malfunctioning or improperly set thermostat is one of the most common heating and furnace problems. Since the thermostat is responsible for controlling when and how much heat is produced, even a minor issue can affect your home’s comfort. It can be surprisingly easy to brush up against a thermostat and change its settings accidentally or to forget to change the battery.
Mechanical Wear and Tear
Even if you have a newer unit, it is important not to neglect regular maintenance appointments. Your furnace and ductwork rely on many components, each of which could potentially fail. Scheduling a professional inspection annually can help to catch any minor issues and prevent the need for emergency repairs. Regular maintenance can also increase your system’s efficiency and help to lower your heating costs.
