Change Air Filters
One of the best things that you can do for your heater is change out the air filter. Check to see how long your air filter is rated for – usually one month. Start checking on your filter a little before the one month mark and consider changing it a little sooner if it is particularly dirty. Changing the air filter a little more often doesn’t have a high cost, but I can have a huge impact on your heater in a good way.
If your air filter gets too clogged with dust and dirt, it cannot allow enough airflow through to your heater. And without enough airflow coming in, there’s not enough air to heat and blow out into your home. This can put a huge strain on your heater as it tries to work harder against this blockage.
Look for Leaks
It’s also important to inspect your heater for signs of leaks. Your heater has a condensate drain line that helps to eliminate water waste that comes from humidity in the air. The humidity condenses down into droplets and exits your home through the condensate drain line. However, if the line gets clogged or sustains damage, then you may have a leak. Leaks need to be addressed so the air heater can work more efficiently. Plus, leaks can cause water damage to the structure of your home.
Clean the Ducts
Ideally, you should invest in duct cleaning services every three to five years. If it has been longer than that since you’ve had your ductwork inspected and cleaned, now is a great time to schedule the service ahead of the winter season. This valuable service will improve your indoor air quality and help to elevate your heater’s energy efficiency by offering greater opportunity for optimal airflow.
Plan Regular Inspections
Our team should take a look at your heater once per year during an annual tune-up. But you’re at work all the time and have the opportunity to inspect your heater more often. It’s easy to miss the signs of heater problems since you see and hear your heater all the time. We encourage you to inspect it once per month for signs of problems or damage to stay ahead of any issues. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, give our team a call.
