Top 4 Signs of an Inefficient Heating System
If your Palm Desert, California, home’s heating system is inefficient, it will cost you more money since it will burn more fuel while still leaving you cold. Below are three signs that your heating system may not be running at an optimal level and that it may need a tune-up.
Higher Utility Bills
If you notice your energy bills have been climbing unreasonably this could mean that your heating system is losing efficiency over time. If your heating unit has to work harder and use more energy to achieve the temperature set by your thermostat, you may have clogged filters. If there are leaks in your ducts, that means heat is being lost.
If cool air is coming from the heating registers, that is definitely a sign that your heater isn’t working properly. An inefficient heating system may not be able to keep your home warm, even when it’s running at full capacity. Try checking that the thermostat is set correctly then call an HVAC technician to come to your home and address the problem.
An older heating system that hasn’t been maintained properly may need frequent repairs. If your heating system needs frequent repairs, it might be time to schedule a full maintenance checkup and consider replacing your heater with a newer, more efficient model.
Slow Heating Times
If your heating system takes a long time to get your home warm, dirty or malfunctioning parts may be the problem. Get a skilled heating technician to inspect your heater as soon as possible. The technician will be able to clean any dirty components and replace any malfunctioning parts that are contributing to your heating problems.
Don’t let the winter chill get to you. If your heating system isn’t working at full capacity, you could spend the winter in an uncomfortable house and with high utility bills. Call All Knight Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to schedule an appointment with one of our qualified technicians.
