Heating Problems- Poorman’s Heating and Air Conditioning

Uh-oh! Did you forget to schedule your furnace maintenance this past fall? You may be forgiven for the time being, but that is only until your heating system decides to stop working. (And Indiana winters are not very forgiving!) Don’t wait until your house drops to a chilly 50 degrees, try your best to schedule an appointment at least once a year. Remember, it’s important to get your system checked annually due to some simple fixes that will help keep you warm all winter long.

Regular maintenance check ups help you avoid common furnace repairs such as:

  • Problems with the Thermostat. Yes, it could really be as simple as changing the batteries. The thermostat really works as the brains of your heating system. Unfortunately, more times than not a thermostat is often the culprit when your system malfunctions. But thankfully, a quick fix also tends to be a fairly inexpensive fix as well.
  • Dirty Filters. (Achoo!) Cleaning or replacing an the filter is easy, but it’s also very important. Filters should be inspected regularly to ensure they’re working to their full potential. Clogged filters impair the system’s airflow reducing the efficiency. This could take a toll on your allergies too, be careful!
  • Pilot Light Failure. Intermittent ignition can cause your system to heat unevenly or in worst cases not at all! If your heating system has a pilot light, your system’s approximately 25 years and is at the end of its lifecycle. At this point, you might want to look into a replacement heating system.

The most common repairs are often the most avoidable. Try and remember to scheduled a maintenance appointment to avoid an inner-home deep freeze later.
