Now that September has arrived and fall officially arrives on September 22nd, the temperature will soon begin to cool down. That means it’s time to start transferring your attention from your air conditioning to your heating system. Whether you have a furnace, boiler or other system, it’s time to give your heating a little TLC.
As experts in heating and cooling for Vadnais Heights and surrounding areas, we have a few suggestions on what to look for and a few steps you can take. And, if you discover your heating system is not working, then you can call HVAC contractors like us for help. So, start reading below and let’s get your heating system in tip top shape for fall!
First, check the filters. Dirty filters are one of the biggest reasons for a furnace not working properly. Checking them and changing them is a great way to avoid having to call contractors for help.
Next, turn on your furnace and check the air vents. Is warm air blowing out? If cold air or no air at all is blowing out, then it is time to give us a call. Our heating and cooling contractors can come out and take a look to see what the problem is. As for boilers, they are similar to furnaces in that you need to test them before the worst of the cold hits. Turn your boiler on and check to make sure your radiators are warming up.
How is your thermostat? If it doesn’t seem to be working properly, it should be addressed as soon as possible. But don’t worry! This is usually a fairly easy fix. After checking the thermostat, if your heating still is not working properly, you should check your house’s air vents. Are all of the vents fully open? Are they blocked? Make sure they are all open and clear to ensure the warm air can blow out of them properly.
If you still notice issues, you should call our heating and cooling company for assistance. We can send a technician to your home as soon as possible to check on things and to ensure your furnace is working as it should.
Finally, contact our heating and cooling contractors for a routine inspection. We can come to your home and make sure your furnace or boiler is working as it should be before the cold weather hits. That way, you’re not stuck waiting in the cold for help.
The most important tip of all is to only hire a company you can trust. Choosing a heating and cooling company can be a difficult task, especially if you’ve never done it before. But, with Prescription Heating and Cooling you can rest easy knowing your home’s heating and cooling is in good hands.
