5 Easy Ways To Prevent Heating Problems

Posted by Warner Service on Jan 16, 2018 9:00:00 AM


No one likes cold tile floors, waking up to a freezing room, or too-high energy bills (even with Maryland’s harsh winter) right after the expensive holiday season. 

The educated professionals at Warner Service discuss how to prevent these heating problems in the future -- or maybe just in time. Here's our list of basic steps that you can take throughout the year, no matter the season:

Trust the experts. Investing in the right HVAC equipment is a huge way to prevent heating problems in the future, and who better to suggest what to buy than those that understand it best?

By taking the advice of local heating professionals, you can ask questions and gauge which appliance will work best for your home -- and wallet.

At Warner Service, we offer Trane furnaces, boilers, and other appliances that have a long lifespan, come from a reputable source, and offer the most advanced technology for your home. Contact one of our experts for more information.

Read up, and read often. While expert blogs and self-help books aren't the total solution to fixing every heating problem, they're a good place to start. Use these (often free) resources to familiarize yourself with HVAC terminology, common seasonal mishaps, and licensing information.

Reading basic information helps you better converse with techs to discuss and understand what's really going on in your home. This helps you avoid an overpriced estimate for a heating component or a shoddy, short-term solution for a serious heating problem.

Call for check-ups. You probably know that you should change the air filter every month, but do you do it? Do you call the local experts for a maintenance check-up every 3 months?

Because the HVAC in your home goes through a lot with each change in season, especially from fall to winter, call the pros for a quick diagnostic inspection. To prevent heating problems between November to February, Warner Service takes a look at the following:

  • Air conditioners
  • Air ducts
  • Boilers
  • Carbon monoxide detectors
  • Electronic air cleaners
  • Furnaces
  • High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) systems
  • Humidifiers
  • Programmable and wireless thermostats
  • Radiators
  • UV light systems
  • Ventilators

Our skilled professionals perform quality inspections to test, calibrate, measure, clean, and adjust any necessary components in these appliances to ensure your home is safe and your family is warm during the harsh winter.

Pro Tip: Warner Service also offers emergency service and plumbing maintenance for homes, so don’t try to fix an overheated boiler in the middle of the night. Call our professionals.

Sign up for a service agreement. Between soccer practice and piano lessons, you’re a busy parent. We understand if heating maintenance gets swept to the side, because we’ve got a full family schedule, too.

That's why residential service agreements make perfect sense for any busy parent. It eliminates the learning curve by hiring the pros to tackle projects, renovations, and repairs on a renewable basis.

Warner Service performs maintenance for the above-mentioned heating appliances, as well as gas logs and piping and gas or oil heat pumps and systems.

Perform the minimal maintenance. You shouldn't have to pay top dollar for optimal comfort. By performing minimal maintenance requirements on your home’s HVAC, you lower the energy bill, save on repairs and replacements, and so much more.
