Four Major Things to Do If Your Heating System Stop Working this Winter:

If your furnace stop working, we at Home comfort Air Services believe that our customers can save money by just doing some basic things before calling any service company
Here are the four major things to check:

  1. Power
    It is always good to check the power switch to the furnace. Sometimes our family member can accidentally turn the furnace switch to off position. The switch could be around the furnace or at the main circuit breaker
  2. Thermostat
    Making sure your thermostat setting is correct can help you save unnecessary service call expenses. It is our common encounter sometimes that the thermostat was not set properly. Also, somebody may accidentally change the programming or configuration can result in system dysfunction. Depending on the type of the thermostat batteries can also be checked and replaced
  3. Filter
    A filter that is clogged can create airflow restriction and can result in system short-cycling, which eventually leads the system to lock. It is a smart thing to do to check your filter and get it replaced regularly. It is also a good idea to make sure all supply and return vents are not blocked or closed. Check the proper orientation of the dampers. Some houses have dampers on the ductwork which has to be adjusted to the right position in each season.
  4. Fuel Supply
    It is good to make sure we have enough supply of propane or oil supply to our heating unit. Depending on the make and model our heating unit fuel source may be different. Also, it is good to check the position of the gas valve whether it is on the one or off position.

6 Benefits of Fall Heating Inspection

It is that time of the year again we all get excited about the holiday season and get occupied with many tasks. The weather already feels like we are in midwinter. It is a smart decision to schedule your heating unit efficiency tune-up. Performing regular heating inspection has great benefits.

Here are the six benefits you get:

  • Extending the life of your heating unit

 Just like your car, your furnace needs a regular tune-up. Furnaces have moving parts that need regular inspection and have parts that need services before every season. Lack of scheduled maintenance can eventually result in a big repair bill. Here at Home Comfort Air Services, we make sure that your heating system is inspected thoroughly for the cold winter.

  • Increased efficiency

Regular heating unit maintenance makes sure that your heating unit is running to the manufacturer set recommendations and standards. Doing so allows you to save energy by making your unit work to the efficiency standard it is set.

  • Minimize unexpected breakdown.

During routine furnace inspection, it is normal some time to come across parts that are weak or making noise. On the inspection report, the technician can bring this finding as a recommendation to the homeowner.

  • Protecting your family from Carbon monoxide hazard.

One of the major activities furnace inspection is to make sure your heating unit is properly venting outside the house. Our technician also makes sure your furnace is performing proper combustion. We also test the proper operation of your carbon monoxide detector and, if needed, we perform.

  • Keep the manufacturer warranty valid.

Almost all manufacturers require homeowners to perform a regular heating unit inspection to be legible for manufacturer warranty.

  • Peace of mind.
