There is nothing more comforting in the chilly winter months than firing up your home’s heater and cozying up inside with your favorite activities. But the cold weather and long running hours can put a strain on your heating system. It’s important to remember a few tips this winter to keep your heater running in top condition all season long.
Running your heater for long hours can cause general wear-and-tear on your system. You can prolong your heater’s lifespan and save some electricity by regularly cycling it off, especially when you are out of the home. A programmable thermostat makes it easy. You can plug in your desired temperature settings for the times you are normally home and have the system shut off while you are away.
Inefficient air flow is a chief cause for subpar heating performance. A simple fix you can do yourself is replacing your air filters on a regular basis. This not only prevents blockages thereby improving air flow, but it can also provide better indoor air quality throughout your home. Take a glance at the size of your current air filter and look for a well-made replacement at your favorite local retailer. You should consider replacing your filter even more often if you have bad allergies or indoor pets.
Never wait until the last minute to service your heater. Once it is broken, it could cost you substantially more in repair fees than it would for simple annual maintenance.
