Ways Maintenance Can Help Your Heater

Many Waukegan homeowners don’t think maintenance is essential. However, if you turn your heater on in the middle of an Illinois winter, only to hear a clanging noise and no warm air, you might think differently. In addition to helping you stay warm, regular professional maintenance has some surprising benefits.

5 Benefits of Heater Maintenance:

  1. Extends the lifespan of your system
  2. Requires fewer repairs
  3. Lowers energy bills
  4. Maintains your warranty
  5. Increases your indoor air quality

How Often Should a Heater Be Serviced?

All HVAC systems should have maintenance service performed at least once a year. Annual maintenance is the key element needed to ensure a heater lasts for years to come. When a trained HVAC technician services a heater they can identify small issues that, when left ignored, can lead to major problems down the road. Annual maintenance is necessary to ensure a heater will last longer and expensive repairs can be avoided.

Why Is My House Cold With The Heating On?

If your heater is running and there is a cold room or multiple rooms in your house it's possible you have a dirty air filter or the ductwork is not configured correctly. When the ductwork is not configured correctly there isn't an even delivery of heat throughout your home. Dirty air filters, however, are the most common cause of rooms not being heated properly. Dust and dirt restrict the air flow from the furnace unit.
