Vital Heating Tips
These are a few simple ways to help your home’s heater stay high-efficiency and effective.
1. Schedule an Appointment for Maintenance
Florida weather is a little tricky because our warm weather season is most of the year. This means that you’re probably not going to call for heating maintenance work in September like most people would in other states. Everyone else is starting to feel the chilly weather then, but we can still be on the beach in flip flops. Now though, it’s definitely time to call a heating technician for maintenance work. Maintenance keeps your home happy and efficient.
2. Replace Your Filter
Your heater and air conditioner both have a filter in the unit. This filter is there to keep your heater and/or your air conditioner clean and ready to operate. As a homeowner, this is something you can do all on your own. Replacing your filter once every season keeps your home in top-notch shape. You can avoid a myriad of unnecessary repair issues.
3. Turn Your Thermostat Down
We know what it’s like to enter a chilly home, walk right over to the thermostat, and turn the heater up to a temperature that’s baking. It seems like a good idea in the moment. You’re going to be warm faster, right? The answer is no. A higher temperature on your thermostat doesn’t actually help you warm up faster. What it does do though, is wear down your heater a lot faster.
4. Upgrade Where You Can
If you’ve had your home’s current thermostat for a while, then it’s definitely time for you to schedule an appointment with our team members. An upgrade is what’s going to help you get more from your home’s heater. New thermostats on the market like smart and Wi-Fi thermostats provide you with better energy-efficiency, better heating, and longer-lasting heating quality.
