How to Get Your Heating System Ready for Cold Weather

Well, Autumn has arrived and will quickly shift to winter.  Freezing temperatures have already arrived, and they are early, but it’s not too late to get your heating system ready.  Chilly days and nights close or at freezing temperatures are when you depend on your heating system the most.  Is your system ready to provide comfort? To make sure, plan now to get your heating system prepared.  At Efficient Home Solutions, we are focused on keeping you and your family comfortable; thus, we have put together some helpful tips on how to get your heating system ready for Texas weather.

Tip #1: Change or clean your air filters – Once your air filter begins looking dirty, it has already started hampering the airflow through your heating system.  Restricted airflow = harder-working system = increased utility bills and potential system damage if prolonged.

Tip #2: Have ductwork sealed – Do you know if your ductwork is sealed?  Simple cracks, holes, or leaks cause air to leak out, costing extra money in energy each year! Leaky ductwork also allows harmful particles into the air you breathe.

Tip #3: Don’t ignore weird noises – Weird noises are not typical and could be the sign of heating system malfunction.  Malfunctions, if ignored, could result in severe damage to internal heating components.

#4: Schedule maintenance for your heating system.

With the proper and regular maintenance and inspection of your heating system, you will be able to rely on your heating system to keep you warm.  So, whether it’s preventative maintenance, a furnace repair, or a complete system replacement, Efficient Home Solutions has the experience that you can count on to get the job done right.
