Nothing in your home affects your comfort in the cold weather more than your heating system. Yet, unless it conks out during a blizzard, most of us don’t give our HVAC systems a second thought.
When not kept in good shape, even the very best system can waste energy. How much depends on the climate where you live and how you heat your home. But the fact is that dirty thermostats, clogged filters, un-lubricated fan motors, leaky ductwork and sooty flues can reduce heating efficiency by as much as 25 percent.
Some maintenance tasks are relatively simple and can be done on your own, but others require a trained heating contractor. You’ll also need an HVAC pro if your system is nearing the end of its useful life. When looking for a heating contractor to maintain your system, it’s always best to find one who installs and services the type of system you own. A full-service company also tends to be up-to-date with the latest developments and technologies in the HVAC industry.
Ask your friends, family, neighbors or work colleagues if they know of someone who they have used on more than one occasion. Finally, a quality heating contractor will offer an emergency service that’s manned 24/7, as well as enough technicians to respond when the weather is terrible and the calls start piling up.
