Spring doesn’t start right when the calendar reads March 20th in Montgomery County—at least not in feeling. We can be a little slow on the warm up in our area.
Now though, the temperatures are really starting to thaw out. You’re going to say goodbye to your heater for the season pretty soon. There are a few things you should consider before you push your heating services to the back of your mind for the next few months. We’re going to talk you through a few today. If you’re in need of heating services, our team members are experts in HVAC in Montgomery County, PA. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
How To Wrap Things Up
Here are a few things you can do to wrap up your heating service this spring.
Face Your Heating Problems Head On
This is the time of year where you need to be really honest with yourself about your heating. That weird noise that your heater made never went away, nor did that cycling problem, and neither did the weird smell you’d notice whenever the system would click on. If you’re being honest with yourself, your heater is a little bit worse for wear.
Now that spring has arrived and the flowers are blooming, you’ve got warm weather on your mind. We want to jump in and remind you that winter is never too far away. That’s why you should always have your heater in great shape. It’s better to handle your issues now when they’re low stakes. Don’t wait until the end of summer when the fall chill is fast approaching and you’re working against the clock.
Consider Getting a New Thermostat
We’re sure that the current thermostat in your home has done you well. The fact of the matter is that if you don’t have a smart or Wi-Fi thermostat, then you’re not getting the best that your thermostat has to offer.
Wi-Fi and smart thermostats are both great because they help you eliminate human error and efficiency delays. Forget to turn your heater off before your head out for the day? Want to start warming up your home before you step in the front door? Easy—you can do it from your phone, tablet, or computer.
Smart thermostats are even better because they “learn” how you like to run your home. Over time, they can start to suggest energy-efficient practices for you.
Maintain Your Ducts
What’s your home’s ductwork like?
We know that you’re not up in your attic or in your crawlspaces observing it firsthand, but there are a few signs of unhealthy ducts. If you’re hearing whistling, noticing your energy bills spike randomly, or just not feeling as warm as you’d like to be, then your ducts could actually be the culprit. Come to our team for air duct testing services. This will allow us to pinpoint your trouble spots. From there, we can determine what’s best for you whether it be full on air duct repair or a duct cleaning.
