What to do When Your Home Heating Needs Examining

What to do When Your Home Heating Needs Examining


We’ve all been there: It’s the first cold day of fall and you turn off your A/C to (hopefully) feel the warm breeze of your heater flow through your home. But what do you feel instead? Nothing!

Stagnant air and no purr from the heater. Not only can this put your home at risk, but it could lead to some extensive emergency repairs that could have easily been avoided.

But now you won’t have to panic because with knowledge comes (heating) power; so let’s learn about your home heating and cooling system by taking a dive into what they are and how they work.

Knowing Your HVAC System

You may even be wondering: what is an HVAC? The initials HVAC stand for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, describing the elementary functions of your HVAC system.

As a whole, your HVAC system is controlling the temperature and quality of the air inside your home. The temperature is controlled via either your heating option or your air conditioning option, as your HVAC houses both operations in one unit.

And the ventilation, of course, filters your air to maintain good air quality in your home. Keeping the air in your home pollution-free allows your HVAC system to run at top-level and also lightens the load on your bill.

How Did Your Heating System Break?


So now that you have a little background on your HVAC and are familiar with some terminology, let’s get back to your problem: your heating system is broken. To understand why it’s broken we need to examine how it broke.

Common reasons your heating system can break include a dirty filter, clogged ducts, a broken thermostat, or overall poor maintenance of the system. Dirty filters are the number one reason that heaters quit working and are one of the easiest to prevent from happening.

Dust, dirt and other pollutants get filtered through your HVAC and can cause the filter to fill with debris which makes your heater not work. An easy fix is to keep the air in your home as clean as possible and to change your filters regularly.
