If you’re like most people, your heating system is one of the essential pieces of equipment in your Fountain Hills, AZ, home. Unfortunately, it can also be one of the most problematic. It’s critical to know how to avoid potential problems with your heating system, and we’re here to help you do just that.

Check Your Filters Regularly

If you’ve got a central heating system, one of the most important things you can do to keep it running smoothly is check your filters regularly. If you neglect this, your furnace could be forced to work harder than necessary, and that will decrease its lifespan.

Clean or replace your furnace filters at least every three months. Clean or replace them every month if you have pets, smoke, or suffer from allergies.

Keep the Vents and Registers Clear

You should regularly inspect your heating system to make sure that the vents/registers are free of any debris – lint, hair, dust, toys, etc. It’s also important to make sure that the registers in your home aren’t covered with furniture or rugs. Blocking the airflow of your heating system will affect its efficiency and your comfort.

Clean the Interior of Your Furnace

It’s essential to schedule an annual maintenance visit so your furnace can be cleaned yearly. Dust and other debris can block airflow through your heating system, creating problems. It’s also essential to inspect the unit regularly for any signs of overheating. This includes discoloration of any metal, the presence of dust or lint in certain parts of the system, or even an unusual odor.

As they clean, a professional will also check for cracks or holes in the sections of ductwork that are visible. For such cleaning services, reach out to Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling Company in Fountain Hills. We offer several other services, including repair, furnace replacement, and more.

Your heating system needs some tender loving care to ensure that it’s running correctly all year long. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
