Scotch Plains Heating Service Tips

If you live in Scotch Plains heating service tips will help you be sure you are getting the most out of your heating system even when Spring fever sets in!  Here are some of the best tips to keep your heating service working at it’s tip top condition before you run to get a furnace repair.  This will save you hundreds in the long run, and time in the short run!

Scotch Plains Heating Service Tips

First, identify if you have a problem at all.  Some sure tell signs of a heating service issue are abnormal noises or a shut down system.  If your system is off and you didn’t shut it off, there is a chance that it is overworked and in need of some tinkering, or at least some tender love and care (you know, TLC).  Another sure fire sign of an issue is a blatant smell of gasoline.  If you ever smell a strong odor of gas or any other type of odor coming from your heating or cooling unit, call a professional immediately!

If any of the above signs have happened to you, here are some other things to consider before calling a professional:

Confirm that the setting of your system is set to “heat”.  Though it may seem crazy, some times we go for long periods of time with our systems set to “cool” at a very high temperature.  If this is the case, our air conditioners will stop working after the temperature of your home has balanced out, allowing your home to maintain the temperature from the outside and the sun.  After a period of colder air outside, we may perceive that the heating system is not working, when in effect it has just not yet been turned to “heat”.  To remedy this situation, just literally turn it to “heat”.  Voila!

The next thing to check on is your furnace switch.  This switch or knob on your furnace should be moved to the “on” position, which is usually “up”.  If you’ve switched the furnace to “on”, be sure to wait a few minutes, even up to half an hour, to give your furnace time to warm up and officially start working.

Next, change your furnace air filter.  All furnaces need new air filters every now and again, so it is important to regularly check them to be sure they are working and clear of debris and dust, etc.  In fact, changing your filter every three months or so will help your heating system run most efficiently and effectively.  This will also help hold off any furnace repair that you will need in the future.  Just think of all the dust, dirt, and bacteria that can grow and fester on a dirty air filter – YUCK!  Changing your air filter can not only help your heating system run better, but can keep your family healthier too!

Whether or not any of these issues have come up in your heating system, it is important to keep all of your heating and cooling systems working in tip top condition.  The best thing you can do for your system is to have regular service checks, and have a great local professional on call to answer any questions you may have and help you repair or install anything you may need.

The whole experience from start to finish was great. First someone knowledgeable answered the phone when I called. The timing of getting someone to the house was very reasonable and when the tech was behind schedule I received a call beforehand to update me with the new timeslot. The tech Steven was very personable, knowledgeable and efficient.
