With winter in full swing, you may find yourself paying more and more frequent visits to your thermostat, turning up the temperature ever-so-slightly each time in an attempt to keep your home warm. Yet no matter how high you raise the temperature, your heating system never seems to make your home as warm as you would like. Sound familiar? If your heating system runs incessantly, only for your home to maintain its refrigerator-like status, it may be a sign that you have a heating issue on your hands.
It Could Be Time for a Repair or Replacement
Heating issues are all-too-common here in Harrisonburg and Elkton — especially because many residential heating systems in the area have gone years without proper maintenance. If you sense that there is an issue with your heating system, have a professional take a look as soon as possible. A professional will inspect your heating equipment to determine if a repair is needed or if replacement would be more advantageous. You’ll catch smaller heating system issues before they escalate into larger ones, and you’ll replace your heating equipment before it requires several expensive repairs.
What to Do If It Is Time to Replace
If you need to replace your heating equipment in the near future, now is a good time to consider your options. While you could upgrade your current furnace to a higher efficiency furnace, for example, now is also an ideal time to switch to an air source heat pump for even greater energy savings. The right heating specialist will assess your home’s heating load and outline all of your options. Whatever you choose for your new heating system, be sure to enroll in a maintenance plan for your heating equipment. A maintenance plan will help you get the most from your heating investment with regular, scheduled maintenance and priority service on repairs.
