Turning Up the Heat: Your Winter Warm-Up Guide with Jackson Services

As temperatures start to drop outside, the time has come to turn on your heating system and ensure a warm and cozy home. Before you reach for that thermostat, there are a few crucial things you should know to ensure a smooth transition into the colder months. 

Inspect Your System

Start with a visual inspection. Examine all visible components for wear and tear, including cracks, rust, and damage. Look for dust layers on key surfaces and check for signs of electrical damage or loose connections. If damage is spotted or you need a second opinion, schedule a service appointment for a comprehensive inspection and repairs.

Change Your Filters

A clean filter is your first line of defense against airborne particles that can compromise HVAC efficiency. Regularly check and replace your filters to ensure seamless air circulation, prevent increased energy consumption, and reduce wear and tear on your system.

Check for Strange Odors

The first time you turn on your heat, you might notice a slight burning smell. This is normal as dust accumulated in the system burns off. Lingering odors may indicate a larger issue like excessive dust, mold growth, or even mechanical problems within the heating system.

If the strange smells persist, it’s time to call in the professionals. Our skilled HVAC technicians can conduct a comprehensive inspection to identify and address the root cause of the heating system odor. 

Test the Thermostat

Precise temperature control is key to a cozy home during the winter months! Plus, it reduces unnecessary energy consumption, lowering your utility bills and reducing environmental impact. Test your thermostat by setting it to a higher temperature than the current room reading and making sure the system responds accordingly. If you notice discrepancies, your thermostat may need to be calibrated or replaced.

Listen for Unusual Noises

Unusual banging, clanking, or whistling noises coming from your heating system could indicate a range of issues, from loose or damaged components to problems with the blower or heat exchanger. Treat these sounds as early cues to contact a professional HVAC service provider if you want to avoid potential breakdowns or costly repairs. 

Schedule Regular Maintenance

Reacting to heating system issues only when they become glaring problems often results in emergency calls, unplanned downtime, and the potential for higher repair costs. Regular check-ups give you peace of mind and catch potential problems early, ensuring your system runs efficiently year-round.
