Getting Your Heating Unit Ready For The Cold Season
Chances are your heating unit has been lying dormant all summer. That’s why you need to make sure your heating system is ready to combat the cold weather before you have a house full of guests over for the holidays. This way, you avoid any unusual odors coming from the unit or the unit malfunctioning all together.
At Bill Howe, we can help you get ready for the lower temperatures if your system isn’t working properly. To make sure that you’re good to go, it’s important to have your system thoroughly checked and tested before you need to start heating your home. After all, your heater is only used for a few months out of the year, so it can collect a lot of dust during the months it is not in use.
As a result, that unpleasant smell people often experience when turning their heater on for the first time in the winter is actually all the accumulated dust burning off. So, don’t panic. That’s not a sign that something’s wrong with the unit, but it does show that it hasn’t been used for a while. Plus, all of that dust could reduce the efficiency, which means you won’t be able to warm the house as well as you should and you might see an increase in your electric bill.
At Bill Howe, we know that getting your unit cleaned, tuned up and changing out the filter is the best recipe for success and can help you save money. So let us help you stay warm this holiday season with a heater that is running at peak performance. At Bill Howe, we have decades if experience prepping your heating unit for the winter.
