You can’t count on the weather in Tomball, but one thing the team at Premium Air Services LLC wants you to be able to trust in is your heating and cooling system. Having a cozy home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you expect 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, stable self lately, there are a few things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at Premium Air Services LLC.
Check the Thermostat
We have received calls where we simply had to 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 would like it to do.
One thing to look over while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. The majority of digital thermostats are equipped with 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 simple 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 decrease air flow, it could also cause an abrupt breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is easy and it can play a major role in keeping your system running at its best.
Check the Switches
The first switch you’ll want to look at is the breaker for your furnace. Occasionally a problem can be as minor as a tripped breaker or blown fuse.
Check the Vents
A frequent misconception is that a homeowner should shut the vents in unused rooms. This could actually lead to a furnace repair in the future. Closed vents generate higher pressure inside your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
