Is Your Heating System…Not So Hot?

Summer in Cincinnati was no doubt beautiful this year, but there’s no escaping the fact that the chilly weather is finally here. Unfortunately, it’s only going to get cooler, which means now is the time to make sure that your heating system is functioning at peak performance. If you turned on your furnace recently and it didn’t feel quite as hot as you remember it being, this may be a sign that it’s time for a tune-up.

National is here to help, no matter what might be going on with your furnace.

Common Problems Affecting Homeowners

When you install a new heating system, everything tends to work just fine for the first few years. It can be difficult to think about the problems which might pop up in the future when things are running properly, but even the best heating systems will encounter issues after years of use. One problem that affects Ohio homeowners commonly is a partial loss of heat, in which case it just doesn’t seem as if your heating system is as powerful as it once was. This is not something that typically happens with heating systems that are functioning properly and indicates that a problem exists somewhere.

In some cases, it’s possible for homeowners to experience total heat loss. Cincinnati winters are not known for being even remotely tropical, and there’s nothing worse than losing heat during the height of winter. Emergency heating repair is often a requirement at this point, which can be expensive and is best avoided. How? Preventative maintenance.

What to Look For

Once you’ve determined that something’s up with your heating system, it’s important to have things looked at by a trained professional. Thermostat problems are a good place to start, but electrical systems and your heating system’s ignition must be checked as well. If an unpleasant odor is noticeable, it’s possible that your furnace may be leaking or that another problem may exist. A National contractor will help to isolate any issues that pop up during a maintenance appointment and prescribe suggestions and recommendations, which may include installing a high-efficiency heating system to replace your old one.

At National Heating and Air, we want every customer we serve to go through the winter as comfortably as possible. No one deserves to be left in the cold when the temps drop to uncomfortable levels, and heating maintenance can help to ensure that you and your family don’t find yourselves in such a position.
