Heating units are important for our good health; especially during fall and winter months. However, there are a few signs that your heating unit may need a tune up such as not experiencing heat when your heating unit is on. If this happens, check the circuit breaker and see if it is in the on position. If this is not the case, contact a professional repairman.
Another sign that your heating unit needs a tune up is if you hear loud noises coming from the heating unit. Loud noises could indicate a problem with the blower motor or the ignition is being delayed. Still another sign that your heating unit needs a tune up is if your heating bill is unusually high. Of course, heating bills are higher in the fall and winter but if they spike up all of a sudden, your heating unit may need to be checked out. Also, if you notice a musty odor in your home, that may also be a sign that your heating unit needs a tune up. Of course, another sign that your heating unit needs a tune up is your carbon monoxide monitor.
It is important to note that a dirty filter also makes a heating unit work harder. When a heating unit has to work harder, it will shorten the life span of the unit and will cause your heating bills to go much higher. Keep in mind that when you see an unusual buildup of dust in your home, the filters could be clogged and that is often a sign that your heating system needs a tune up.
To conclude, heating units are important in order to keep you and your family warm and safe. So, if you notice the above signs, talk with a heating and cooling expert, soon.
