You can’t depend on the weather in Pacheco, but one thing the team at Clean Air HVAC wants you to be able to depend on is your heating and cooling system. Having a comfy home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you require all year. When your furnace is having complications you may think that means a furnace repair can be expected in your future. That may not be the case. If your furnace hasn’t been its usual, dependable self recently, there are a few things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at Clean Air HVAC.
Check the Thermostat
We have had calls where the only thing we did was switch a thermostat from “cool” to “heat”. While adjusting 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 would like it to do.
Another thing to look at while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. The majority of digital thermostats have a low battery warning, but if it’s been a while 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 hinder your system’s efficiency and stifle air flow, it could also cause an abrupt breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is effortless and it can play a big role in keeping your system running at its best.
Check the Switches
The first switch you’ll want to check 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 in the future. Closed vents create higher pressure within your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
