Many people don’t worry about their heater until it is completely broken. By that time, it can take a few days to actually complete a heater repair. This can be especially disastrous in the harsh winter. Before your heater gives out entirely, there are a few things you can watch for as warning:
- Your heat pump is over 10 years old- If this is the case, take the initiative and replace it with a better functioning, more efficient pump. A newer unit with higher efficiency will save you money on heating costs.
- Your heater or furnace is over 15 years old– As any appliance gets older, it wears out. Routinely replacing or repairing your heater will help save you money and keep your heater working as efficiently as possible.
- You notice a temperature difference in your home– If some rooms are colder than others, you could have a problem with a number of things, such as unsuitable heater installation, improper insulation, or problems with the duct system.
- The air in your home is too dry/humid– Improper maintenance of heat pumps can lead to poor air quality in your home, causing it to be drier in the winter.
It is extremely important to monitor your home and heating system, so you know when a heater repair is necessary. If you can take care of the problem before it becomes serious, you are able to lessen the cost and your stress level.
