6 Heating Mistakes To Avoid This Season

Table of Contents

With colder temperatures settling in this week, it will soon be time to seek shelter in the warmth of your home. Make sure you know how to do your part to help your heating system run at it’s best capacity.

Here are six common heating mistakes homeowners make, and how you can avoid them…

Not Locking Windows

One of the biggest reasons that homeowners experience drafts and leaks in windows is because they haven’t been locked in heating season. Go around to all of your windows to make sure they are closed up tight and locked today!

Lack Of A Heating Schedule

Enjoy the convenience of a programmable thermostat to ensure that your home’s heating schedule is keeping you comfortable, while saving you money when possible. Program the temperature (varying by only a couple degrees) based on when you are home and away. This small change will save you money and energy in the long run!

Adjusting The Thermostat Drastically

Whether you are turning the heat up after coming home or turning it down before leaving the house, it is best to avoid extreme temperature changes. Keeping your home within a 2-3 degree change will help to keep your system from overworking itself.

Closing Curtains

It may be colder outside, but take advantage of those sunny days by keeping your curtains open. The sunlight will help heat your home (for free)!

Neglecting The Furnace Filter

Regular changing of your furnace filter is the best way to keep your system running efficiently. A dirty, clogged filter will block the airflow through your ductwork, causing your system to over work itself. Do yourself and your utility bill a favor and check your filter once a month to see if it needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Ignoring Furnace Issues

Hearing an unfamiliar noise coming from your system? Temperature never quite reaching what you’ve programmed it to be? These are not issues to be taken lightly, as they could be causing your system to wear down and operate unsafely. Call for furnace service at the first sight of trouble.

If your system is 12 years old or more and you’ve been experiencing breakdowns, the biggest mistake you could be making is pouring more money into repairs.

Our Best Advice: Give your heating system some attention BEFORE an untimely breakdown occurs. Our team would be happy to help!
