Balancing My HVAC System

A few months ago, I realized that something was wrong with my HVAC system. It seemed like no matter what I did, some rooms were hot and some rooms were simply getting too much cooled air. Instead of trying to troubleshoot my air conditioner on my own, I called out a professional HVAC repairman for help. They went through each room of my house when the system was running to measure the outgoing airflow and to check for issues. They discovered some serious balance problems, which they resolved after running a few extra lines. Check out this blog to learn more about HVAC in general.

Steps You Can Take Now To Fix Your Furnace

Before the weather cools down too much, you might be wondering if you should check out your furnace. Or perhaps you notice that the furnace is already not working as well as it should. If you are unsure if you have a problem with your furnace, these steps will help you determine if you have a real problem or one that can be addressed quite easily.

Listen to Your Furnace

Do you hear anything abnormal coming from your furnace? If so, you likely have a serious problem, especially if the sounds are accompanied by the heating system posing other kinds of problems.

Smell the Air

It may sound silly, but you need to smell the air in your home every once in a while. If you smell gas, your furnace may be pumping it into your home. In this case, you need to call a professional right away.

Ensure the Thermostat Is Set

It may sound like an obvious solution, but all too many people fail to set their thermostats to heat, or perhaps they don't realize they chose a different setting. If you are not sure how to use the timer settings on your thermostat, consult with your manual ahead of time. Ensure that you really do need a repair before you call a furnace repair service.

Check Your Circuit Breaker

Your next step is to check out the circuit breaker to ensure that your furnace is still powered. Reset the breaker if it is not in the correct position.

Change Your Air Filter

The air filter for your furnace should be changed every few months. Your system will be much more efficient with a new filter, which may even deter any potential problems from popping up. You may also find that you feel better at home when you change the filter. Air filters can gather debris and other nasty stuff that can actually make your family sick.

Check the Furnace Switch

The furnace switch needs to be on in order for your home to get heated. Look for the furnace and turn it on, usually by switching it up. Wait a few minutes for a delay to pass, and determine if the furnace is able to kick on.

It can be costly to replace a furnace, and even repairs can be a difficult cost to cover at a moment's notice. If you can resolve the problem by taking one of these steps, you can certainly benefit.
