We’re coming to close of winter and end of the heating season. The furnaces and boilers will settle into summer hibernation, and the heat pumps will switch over to air conditioning mode. Or at least, this will all happen in theory. March and April can still send come cold shocks through us, and you need to make sure your heater is prepared so you can avoid heating repair in Atlanta, GA during the tail-end of the season.
At Premier Indoor Comfort Systems, we’re familiar with the sort of problems that can affect heating after a few months of colder weather. We have some suggestions for how you can avoid needing to call for repairs for your heater:
Have regular maintenance done (if you haven’t already)
We recommend that you schedule your annual maintenance visit for your heating system in the fall to prepare it for the colder weather. If you didn’t have it done in the fall, it’s never too late. You heating system will have experienced a large amount of wear and tear during the winter, so it’s imperative to have it adjusted, cleaned, and tuned-up so it won’t experience malfunctions.
Change the air filter
We hope you’ve regularly changed the air filter for your furnace or heat pump—once a month, preferably—during its periods of greatest use. If you haven’t changed it, do so now: a clogged air filter can lead to contamination in the cabinet and serious airflow problems.
Don’t overwork the heater
Since we’re moving into the warmer season and you will need the heater on less, keep it off as much as you can to reduce the stress, or keep it at a lower level and put on an extra layer of clothing.
We need to stress something: if you do end up needing repairs this late in the season, don’t put them off because of the arrival of warmer weather. The last thing you want when you need to activate your system once again in late fall is to have the heater break down because of a neglected repair. Call for heating repair in Atlanta, GA as soon as you know you need it!
