You can’t depend on the weather in Eastland, but one thing the team at J & J Air Conditioning wants you to be able to depend on is your heating and cooling system. Having a comfortable home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you require all year. When your furnace is having problems you may think that means a furnace repair can be looming on the horizon. That may not be the case. If your furnace hasn’t been its usual, reliable self recently, there are a couple of things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at J & J Air Conditioning.
Check the Thermostat
We have had calls where all we had to do was switch a thermostat from “cool” to “heat”. While changing the thermostat for the season, a homeowner can easily overlook flipping the switch, telling your heating and cooling system what you need it to do.
One thing to look over while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. Almost all digital thermostats have a low battery warning, but if it’s been a while since you’ve changed batteries it may be time for a swap. It’s another easy fix that could save you a repair call.
Check the Filter
A dirty air filter can create all sorts of troubles. Not only will a dirty filter hinder your system’s efficiency and block air flow, it could also cause a sudden breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is effortless and it can play a huge role in keeping your system functioning at its best.
Check the Switches
The first switch you’ll want to investigate is the breaker for your furnace. Sometimes a problem can be as easy to fix as a tripped breaker or blown fuse.
Check the Vents
A typical misconception is that a homeowner should shut the vents in unused rooms. This could actually lead to a furnace repair in the future. Closed vents create higher pressure inside your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
