There’s no worse time of year to deal with home heating issues that the chilly winter holiday season. Unfortunately, the holiday season is also one in which most homeowners see a significant number of HVAC issues thanks to more guests visiting their home and an increased amount of time spent indoors using the heating system.
Here are three of the most common issues that B & B Mechanical, the leading provider of heater repair in Morrisville, PA, sees during the holiday season.
- A sudden loss of heat. By far the most common issue when it comes to winter heating problems is a sudden and immediately noticeable loss of heat. Having frequent visitors over your home puts a larger than usual strain on your heating system, which can lead to spotty service. When you see a sudden loss of heat, head down to your basement and check the pilot light. These issues usually require a professional to reignite or reset the pilot light.
- A room that can’t stay one temperature. If you find yourself constantly having to adjust the thermostat during your holiday party, a dirty filter or coil is usually the culprit. Your HVAC system relies on having clean parts and pieces to work most effectively. If you notice that it seems to be fluctuating, call a professional to check the cleanliness of your HVAC’s inner coils and filter.
- Carbon monoxide leaking. Carbon monoxide is less of a seasonal issue than the other two on the list, but it’s incredibly serious. Sometimes called the “silent killer,” carbon monoxide gas is odorless, tasteless, and colorless. It can leak from a tiny crack in gas furnaces that have not been replaced in 10 years. Make sure to have your HVAC professional inspect for carbon monoxide leaks during maintenance, and install a carbon monoxide detector in your home.
