Now is the time to FALL into comfort with the right heating solution for your home in the cooler months ahead.
Fall is the perfect time to get your home ready for the cooler months ahead. One of the best ways to prepare is by checking the heating unit inside your home with the help of an HVAC advocate. Doing so could save you time and money without breaking the bank.
A new furnace can address issues like airflow and temperature, especially if you have a second story in your home.
Having the right furnace for your home is like having the matching sock to a pair. Because your cooling and heating systems work together it may be important to check the functionality of your furnace or ac periodically. Addressing issues like airflow with an HVAC expert can help spot any breakdowns in air circulation inside your home. For example, blocked air vents can prevent warm air from reaching its destination. Which is why it’s important to check your AC in the Spring and your furnace in the Fall. That way you can catch any airflow problems before they cost you major money to fix.
Blocked vents could be the issue. Don’t make your heater work harder than it has to. Make sure your furniture or drapes aren’t blocking your vents. For an extra touch, vacuum out dust or pet hair from the dampers to make sure they’re working effectively.
As mentioned above, simple fixes can help make sure your furnace is running optimally. Blocked air vents can cause restricted airflow and higher utility costs when it comes to your home. Making sure all the vents inside your home (and those pushing air outside your home) are clean and in working order will save you loads of time. Besides, no one wants to be shoveling snow away from a vent just to check its airflow in single digit temperatures.
Many homeowners don’t realize they should look at updating their current heating unit before something goes wrong.
Continuing with the theme of checking your home systems, it’s very common for homeowners to wait until something is broken before fixing it. Don’t wait until it’s cold outside to check your furnace. An HVAC advocate can help you check your heating unit’s functions any time of the year to make sure you’re set when you need it most. Contact an expert to get a semi-annual checkup (or more often). Finding out an update is needed early will save you from the “unexpected costs” you may face in the middle of winter when something is more likely to go wrong.
Depending on the model, a high efficiency furnace might cost between 25% to 40% more than an 80% AFUE model.
