Does Your Heating System Need Servicing?
At this point in the year, homeowners the Richmond area will soon be relying heavily on their heating equipment as the temperatures begin to drop! The real question is, will they be getting the warmth they need to stay comfortable?
If your heating equipment isn’t well maintained, you might find yourself unable to escape from the cold of a Virginia winter!
Luckily all you need to do is call Southside Fuel to help with the maintenance of your heating system. Here are some common signs that you might need to call:
Increase in Heating Costs
Over time heating equipment can consume more and more fuel than it usually takes to keep you and your family warm. A well-maintained system will typically remain consistent when it comes to heating costs.
Improper Air Flow
The flow of your heated air is important – without it, you won’t feel any warmer in your home! Regular maintenance can help keep your equipment clean enough to allow airflow throughout the system.
There are normal sounds that heating equipment makes when it runs. Certain noises, however, jump out at you as though to say ‘there’s a problem here!’ If you hear anything that sounds unusual, such as metal screeching or consistent clanging, give us a call right away!
With normal wear and tear it’s expected to have one or two service calls for your heating equipment throughout the year. However, if you’re beginning to spend more and more on repairs – and needing to call for service at an increasing rate, getting routine maintenance can help in a big way.
