Here’s a pop quiz: How to keep your heat running all winter long?
A. Never turn it on so it never has the chance to break.
B. Turn it on, and then bang on the thermostat if it doesn’t work.
C. Pretend A and B don’t exist and call Tower.
We’re always just a phone call away and are happy to help with 24-hour emergency service. However, there is another option to solidify your HVAC’s winter reliability. Run through this quick checklist to ensure a smoothly running system and avoid potentially costly repair bills.
- Change the air filters in the house. Filters are easily available at Lowe’s and Home Depot.
- Verify the breaker is on, the thermostat is set to heat, and turn the temperature up.
- Do a test run. It is normal to have a “hot” smell the first cycle of the season.
We strongly recommend that you complete this prior to a cold day to allow time to catch any malfunctions (or funny noises or smells!) before the heat is running full time.
