Winter has arrived in Alvin, Texas, and it’s important to be prepared when it comes to your HVAC system. Although you may not face frozen pipes, there are a host of other problems you might have to contend with. Here are 4 issues you might face this winter.
Dirty HVAC Filters
Has it been a few months since you’ve turned your heater on? You might need to check and replace your furnace filters. We often change them while your system gets its yearly service, but they should be checked every month or so. Filters should be replaced every three months or more frequently if you have pets. If your heating is inconsistent, this may be the problem.
The HVAC System Has Not Been Serviced
If you have not had a technician come service your system, you are doing yourself a disservice. Part of maintaining your HVAC system is having it maintained every year. Having a technician take a look at your system can also diagnose issues you may not realize you have. Fall is a good time to have this done, because you can catch issues before they cause uncomfortable problems in the winter months. But it’s never too late to have your system serviced.
Loss of Heat
Loss of heat could be due to several issues. A faulty heat pump, compressor, or refrigerant lines could be to blame. It’s best to call in a professional to check this one out because loss of heat could indicate bigger problems.
Carbon Monoxide Leaks
A faulty furnace could lead to carbon monoxide leaks. Known as the silent killer, this odorless gas is almost impossible to detect until it has affected you with headaches, nausea, or worse. Because of its incredibly harmful side effects, it is highly recommended to place carbon monoxide detectors throughout your home. A good rule of thumb is to check them every time you get your furnace serviced.
