Common Seasonal Heating Issues

As we approach the colder months of winter, one of the most important things homeowners should do is ensure that their heating is working properly.

In Castle Rock, the weather can get uncomfortably cold, leaving you with an unpleasant feeling if your home isn’t properly heated.

Unfortunately, many individuals overlook some of the common problems that may be experienced, especially if they don’t take the time to look for them before the winter gets here. Far too often, they wait until the cold weather arises and the moment they want to use their heater, it doesn’t work.

There are a number of potential issues that must be checked before it’s too late. Doing so can help you prepare for the weather and prevent waiting in the cold while you get the services you need. Here are some of the common heating problems you can check over the seasons before winter gets here.

Clean Out Those Filters
Your filters are an integral part of your heating, but they only work effectively when they are properly cleaned and there are no serious problems. A dirty or clogged air filter will restrict the flow of air from your heating unit into the home.

One of the negative impacts of a clogged filter is that when airflow is restricted, it causes the heater to work harder than typically needed in order to reach the desired temperature. As a result, it could lead to more problems with increased wear and tear.

Check the Pilot or Ignition
Whatever type of heating system you use, it’s important to regularly start it up just to ensure that it is working correctly. An ignition or pilot can go bad at any time, but if you’re checking it in the seasons leading up to winter, you can ensure that if there are problems, you can get repairs quickly.

Is the Thermostat Working Properly?
When you go to turn your thermostat on, do you notice that one of the following problems occurs:

  • Your heating won’t turn on at all, despite you setting a temperature
  • Your heating turns on, but it takes much longer to reach the desired temperature
  • Your heating turns on and never turns off

Unfortunately, these are potential signs of a broken or malfunctioning thermostat. Not only is this something that is impacting your home comfort, but it can also result in problems for your heating fan which would require even further repairs.

Ways to Prevent Problems
You may believe that these problems are disastrous, especially when they suddenly appear at a time when you need them most. However, you can prevent yourself from experiencing these problems by properly performing regular maintenance on your heating before the winter even gets here.

Maintenance means you can identify any issues early on and get the solution you need. You won’t be waiting for services during the coldest time of the year and you can focus on your own home comfort all season long.
