Winter brings lower temperatures and unpredictable weather. Utah does not have the most extreme weather patterns, but we still want to stay warm and cozy in our homes.
Look out for these common HVAC problems and address them so you can stay cuddled up with your four-legged friends all winter long.
Your heating system is constantly cycling on and off. This is a sign of a problem. It is potentially a malfunctioning part in your heater or a faulty thermostat. This cycling can lead to increased utility bill or a more expensive issue so give your HVAC technician a call for peace of mind.
Inconsistent Room Temperatures
It’s difficult to get comfortable if the temperature keeps changing in your home. This could be due to a draft, which is fixable by sealing leaky windows or doors and updating insulation. This issue could also be due to unbalanced airflow which can be resolved by adjusting the air vents. If the temperature still remains unreliable, ask your HVAC technician to inspect your coils or filters during your winter heating system tune-up.
Dirty Air Filters
Your heating and air conditioning system uses air filters to remove dust and other particles from your home’s air. This means that your system will collect debris and form clogs if the filters are not replaced regularly. Your HVAC technician can replace your filters and clear any build-up surrounding the area, which will allow your HVAC system to perform normally.
Carbon Monoxide Leaks
This odorless and tasteless gas is poisonous and difficult to detect. Many carbon monoxide leaks occur because of rusted or damaged heaters. One of the best ways to prevent these leaks is to install a carbon monoxide detector and schedule regular maintenance for your heating & cooling system.
