Stay Warm This Winter: Top 5 Signs Your Heating System Needs a Tune-Up

All American Heating and Air Heating tune-upIs Frosty the Snowman living in your house? Does your family bundle up inside in coats, hats, and gloves? It’s time for a heating tune-up. A poorly maintained heating system can be a major problem during the winter months. Keeping your family warm and safe this winter is our top priority.

In addition to ensuring your HVAC system is operating at peak performance, All American Heating and Air has over twenty years of experience troubleshooting and finding solutions.

To help you avoid the unexpected this winter, let’s look at the top five potential heating system issues.

What’s that noise?

Some of the warning signs that a heating tune-up might be needed to keep your system running efficiently include loud banging or popping sounds, which may indicate a problem with the heat exchanger or ductwork of the system. A problem with the blower or fan could cause high-pitched screeching or squealing sounds. A musty or burning odor from a dirty or malfunctioning heating element is another sign that your system requires maintenance.

Too hot or too cold?

Do you feel you are living in a sauna or a freezer? If you set your thermostat to a constant temperature for the fall and winter seasons and notice that some regions of your home are consistently too hot or too cold, it’s critical to identify the source of temperature variations in your home to ensure that your heating system is functioning correctly.

Uneven temperatures can be due to faulty thermostats, uneven air flow, damaged ductwork, insulation problems, or leaks, so contact us at 919-782-6242 for a heating tune-up from the All-American team.

Increased Energy Bills

While Mother Nature’s blasts of arctic air can last for months, you can be proactive about the cost of heating your home by implementing smart, cost-effective solutions. Have you noticed a significant increase in your monthly heating bill? If this is the case, let our technicians perform a system check to rule out any problems, such as weak or damaged insulation, a faulty thermostat, or an inefficient or outdated furnace, and make recommendations for improvements.

Dust Effects

Don’t allow household dust to wreak havoc on your HVAC system. Numerous sources of airborne contaminants love to infiltrate and take over. Those pesky little particles will reduce your energy efficiency and increase your energy consumption if you’re not careful.

You can also check with our knowledgeable technicians for suggestions on detoxifying your home and improving indoor air quality.

Dirty Filters

If air filters are not changed regularly, the winter months can tax HVAC systems. Filters are critical in ensuring unrestricted airflow and filtration throughout the home, trapping airborne contaminants.

Dirt and debris can accumulate quickly in damp, wet, and cold weather, putting a strain on your HVAC system. Talk with one of our technicians to ensure your air filters work smarter, not harder, to protect your air and health.

If you experience any of these HVAC issues, we can address them quickly, getting your home heating system back on track. For faster service, use our online contact form. We look forward to helping you soon!
