Is Your HVAC System Ready for the Holidays?

dog-under-blanketDid you put up your holiday decor in July this year? Whether you decorated back then to lift your spirits or you are working on getting your home ready for the holidays now, we want to make sure that your home will be comfortable as well as wonderfully decorated. Our role in this won’t be helping you hang lights (bummer for us) but will instead be making sure that your heater is in its best possible shape.

Maybe you’ve run your heater several times already these past several weeks as temperatures have dropped. During that time it is possible that your heater has run into some trouble. When you notice something is wrong with your heating system, you can come to us to resolve the issue.

How to Tell Something Is Wrong With Your Heater

The first step to handling a faulty heater before the holidays is figuring out that you have a problem that needs to be dealt with. Make sure you check on your system to determine if your heater is showing any of these warning signs.

  • Odd noises: Your heat pump or furnace may start making strange noises that it never made before. This can include clicking, buzzing, rattling, clanging, booming, hissing, and more.
  • Poor heating: Is your system heating your home in a timely manner? If not, you need to reach out for repairs to address whatever is hindering the heating process.
  • Short cycling: Heat pumps and furnaces alike should have a heating cycling that averages around 15 minutes in length. If your system is turning on and then turning off almost immediately instead, it means that it is short cycling which is incredibly hard on the system.
  • High energy bills: Large spikes in use on your energy bills aren’t any good. Small changes on your utility bills are normal but a large spike reflects a problem in your heater that is forcing it to use extra energy and/or fuel.
