With the cold winter months, heating systems tend to work overtime, which causes wear and tear and can cause your furnace system to breakdown. HVAC Utah is here to help by providing you with everything you need to keep your furnace system working properly. Knowing how to troubleshoot some of the common heating problems will help you maintain your heater.
Expensive Heating Bills
If you keep your thermostat at the same setting and you suddenly notice the heating bill is increasing, you might want to consider having your HVAC system tested. A spike in the heating bill is usually a cause for concern, especially when you are trying to save money. If the heater is not running efficiently, it usually causes problems which lead to expensive bills. The high heating bills usually mean the furnace is turning on frequently and it needs to be cleaned and checked. Older thermostats need to be replaced as they do cause concerns. Programmable thermostats allow you to keep your heating times scheduled with your families needs. Programming the thermostat is a great way to prevent excessive use of the heater when you are not home.
The winter is always associated with dry air, but the warm air produced by the heater is always one to be concerned about. Low humidity in the home can cause concerns because it causes skin irritation, problems with the eyes, nose, and throat. When the air becomes dry, homeowners can often deal with problems with the furniture like having wood paneling cracking or warping. Dry air doesn’t hold as much heat, so it can make your home feel cooler. Humidifiers are a beneficial option to air in keeping it humid so you are not drying out.
Pilot Light Concerns
When the pilot light is not working, you must call HVAC Utah. The pilot light is a necessary source of ignition for your home as it will turn the burners on and off, causing heat. Without the pilot light in working order, you will have heat problems.
