You can’t depend on the weather in Northglenn, but one thing the team at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. wants you to be able to trust in is your heating and cooling system. Having a comfortable home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you require all year. When your furnace is having problems you may think that means a furnace repair can be looming on the horizon. That may not be the case. If your furnace hasn’t been its usual, reliable self lately, there are a couple of things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
Check the Thermostat
We have been on a job where all we had to do was switch a thermostat from “cool” to “heat”. While changing the thermostat for the season, it’s easy for a homeowner to forget to flip the switch, telling your heating and cooling system what you need it to do.
One thing to check while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. Almost all digital thermostats are equipped with a low battery warning, but if it’s been some time since you’ve changed batteries it may be time for a change. It’s another easy fix that could save you a repair call.
Check the Filter
A dirty air filter can create all sorts of troubles. Not only will a dirty filter cripple your system’s efficiency and decrease air flow, it could also cause an unexpected breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is simple and it can play a huge role in keeping your system running at its best.
Check the Switches
The first switch you’ll want to investigate is the breaker for your furnace. It’s often the case that a problem can be as minor as a tripped breaker or blown fuse.
Check the Vents
A frequent misconception is that a homeowner should close the vents in unused rooms. This could actually lead to a furnace repair down the line. Closed vents generate higher pressure throughout your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
