What Causes Heating Issues at Your Home or Building

Did you know that some heating issues are quite common and fairly simple to figure out on your own? On the other hand, many heating related problems need to be addressed by a professional. Either way, it’s important to make sure that you avoid any heating outages this winter. Your family, tenants, and or employees rely on you to provide them with heat during the cold and frigid temperatures. So, what causes heating issues at your home or building? Oftentimes it can be something as simple as a dirty air filter.

That means you should always check your filter first if your heating system is not working properly. The bottom line is that filters become clogged with dirt and debris. When that happens, your furnace is forced to work harder in order to circulate the hot air. That of course limits the efficiency of your heating system. At that point, the furnace is burning more fuel. As you know, fuel is at an all time high in price. So, something as simple as a dirty filter can actually stop your heating system from producing enough hot air to properly heat the property.

In addition, that same dirty filter is costing you a ton of money in wasted heating fuel costs. The good news is that filters are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at any hardware store in New England. Lack of maintenance also causes heating related issues at your home and or building. Your heating system is a machine, and all machines need to be maintained on a regular basis. That means you need to have your furnace or boiler inspected by a professional at least once per year. It will go a long way in preventing problems with your heating system.

Faulty thermostats are another culprit that causes heating issues at your property. In essence, the thermostat tells your heating system what to do. If the thermostat isn’t working properly, the heating system won’t work as well or at all. That’s when you know it’s time to contact a professional HVAC company that can fix the problem.
