5 Essential Heating Tips to Finish the Year Strong

If you’ve been watching the news at all, it’s become clear that winter hasn’t let go of its icy grip all over the country. We might think we’re isolated from those events, but freak-cold weather could occur anywhere and your heater is your first line of defense.

While spring is just around the corner, the chilly temperatures we experience every so often might not entirely be gone. That’s why we’re going to focus one of our last blogs of the season on heating in Glassboro. We’ll talk about some essential heating tips that could keep your bills low, your heating system in good condition, and your home more comfortable.

Nothing treats your system quite like good, old-fashioned heating service by a pro. If you need our help, don’t hesitate to ask.

1. Maintenance Maintenance Maintenance!

You’re probably tired of hearing us talk about maintenance so often, but there’s a reason for it. Simply put, if you want your heater to last as long as possible and come up against only a few necessary repairs, then you want to invest in maintenance. Only maintenance services performed by a trained professional can get your heater working in peak condition. We’ll warn you of any road bumps ahead and make sure your heating bills are as low as they can go.

Don’t even get us started on how maintenance can help make your heater operate safely as well. Trust us, invest in maintenance today.

2. Clear Out Your Air Filter

We know we mentioned this last month, but we thought it was important to remind you again. Your air filter is not just intended to clean your air of contaminants for your own health. While this might be an additional effect of it, its main purpose is to clear contaminants from entering the sensitive areas of your heating system. As it gets clogged up, your heater will struggle to take in air and will run less efficiently. Make things easier for your heater by replacing your air filter every 1–3 months.

3. Invest in Other Air Quality Solutions

Is there so much floating around in your air that you’re seeing a constant clog in your heater’s air filter? Don’t worry, investing in a more widescale air filtration system or air purifier can help clean your air and keep your heater running efficiently. Yes, air quality solutions can help your HVAC system just as much as they help you!

4. Keep Temperatures Mild and Ease the Burden on Your Heater

It might feel better to keep your heater churning out air at 74°, but it’s an unrealistic expectation for your system to operate this way. Keeping temperatures mild like at 68° during the day and 62° at night, is a great way to ease the burden on your heater and let it perform optimally.

5. Invest in the Necessary Repairs

Think of your heater as an investment. It’s not going to be worth the same if you stave off necessary repairs for “sometime down the line.” The longer you wait on necessary repairs or something huge like a system replacement, the more money you’ll be paying for it in higher heating bills, additional problems, and poor comfort. Seriously, it’s time to get your system repaired if you haven’t done it yet.
