Do You Need Heating Repair and Maintenance?
Heaters need love and attention like every other appliance in your home. Does yours need a hug in the form of a repair or a tuneup? Here’s a translation of heater-speak to help you find out if you need a heating repair or maintenance in Fairfax, VA:
Your Furnace Wants a Repair
If water pools around your furnace, it’s telling you the condensate line has clogged. Should you smell gas, your furnace is sending you an SOS; turn off the power, turn off the gas and call a service technician immediately.
When you’re cold and turning up the thermostat doesn’t help, your furnace probably has an electrical problem. If the unit is banging, grinding or thumping, it needs a service technician ASAP. If you have weak airflow or the unit is blowing cold air, consult a furnace specialist who can diagnose the problem. Should your carbon monoxide detector go off, don’t call for repair immediately; call the Fairfax, VA, fire department first and then call for a heating repair.
Your Furnace Wants Maintenance
If it’s been a year or more since your furnace has seen a service technician, schedule heating maintenance. Your furnace expects this without having to ask. If there’s no heat, it has probably gone on strike because it needs a tuneup. When you don’t maintain your furnace, it loses efficiency. Increasing energy bills may be your furnace’s way of telling you it’s tuneup time.
How Your Furnace Will Thank You
When you love your furnace, it’ll love you back. Here’s what a well-tended furnace will give you when it gets some TLC:
- Fewer heating repairs.
- Higher energy efficiency.
- Lower heating bills.
- Maximum indoor comfort.
- Longer lifespan.
