Measurements of How Your Furnace Is Handling the Winter
Here are five ways to tell how well your furnace is holding up against cold temperatures. If you’ve got a problem with any of these categories, then you might want to call our team for support.
- Efficacy. Is your heating keeping your home warm effectively? Think about it, if certain rooms are cold but the rooms where you spend the most time are fine, this is still a problem regardless of how comfy you are in your day to day life. Your furnace should be able to heat your entire home effectively, otherwise there’s a problem.
- Efficiency. How expensive are your monthly utility bills? If they’re so bad that you’re starting to wonder if they’ve ever been this bad, then you might have a repair need! That’s right, problems in your heating system can translate to higher fuel consumption.
- Comfort. Your heating system must be able to heat your home and keep your whole family comfortable. If you’re noticing that you’re not comfortable, or that your family members are complaining about how cold it is, the problem could be in your heating system. Call us to evaluate the situation.
- Reliability. How often do you call us for repairs? Is it once every few months or maybe even once a year? That sounds like too much and it could mean there’s a problem with how reliable your heating system is. If you’re dealing with an unreliable heater, then let’s try to find a long-term solution to the problem.
- Longevity. When you look at your heating system, it’s important to gauge it for the future. How much longer is it going to be able to keep your home warm? If it’s on its last legs and really struggling, but you’ve had it for over 10 years, then it might be time to replace it.
Each of these aspects should be considered when evaluating your home comfort during the winter. If you’ve got any concerns about your heating system, or you’re trying to get help with a problem, don’t hesitate to call our team.
