January 23, 2023

Stay Warm This Winter by Understanding These Heater Facts

Winter is in full swing, and homeowners throughout northern and central New Jersey are relying on their heating systems to keep them warm. Our heating systems are why we can stay comfortable in our homes during the colder months, so it’s important to understand how to operate your system efficiently. 

Weltman Services is sharing five things every homeowner should know to get the most out of their heating system this season. 

Clean or Replace Your Air Filter Regularly

Whenever there is a problem with your heating system, be sure to check the air filter first. Often, a clogged or dirty air filter is the reason you’re having heating issues. It’s recommended to clean or replace this part at least every 90 days for optimal efficiency. 

Know the Type of System You Have

The heating system you have in your home will determine how it operates and what types of maintenance or repairs may be necessary. Common systems include central heating, ductless mini-splits, heat pumps, and furnaces. Understanding the type of system you have is important for knowing what to expect from it and how to maintain it.

Each System Has Different Components

Knowing the different components of your heating system is important for recognizing any potential problems before they become bigger issues. Each system type will have its components, such as the thermostat, blower motor, and pilot light. Understanding these parts can help you better recognize when something is wrong.

Know the Warning Signs

Your heating system may give off warning signs that it needs to be serviced or repaired. These can include strange noises, increased energy bills, lack of hot air coming from your vents, and having areas in your home that are noticeably colder than others. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to contact Weltman Services.

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Regardless of your system type, regular maintenance is essential for keeping your heating system working properly and efficiently. The professional HVAC technicians at Weltman Services can perform routine inspections, cleaning, and any necessary repairs to maintain your system’s performance.
