Heating units are often neglected mainly because they are installed in areas people don’t often visit, such as attics, basements, roofs, etc. But like any other machine, heating units need repairs. Homeowners should know a couple of basic things about their heating units to avoid incurring substantial heating repair costs.
When to Schedule for Repairs
Homeowners should know when to schedule heating unit repairs.
For instance, if the thermostat is not working correctly or if the HVAC is producing a lot of noise. The narrator in the video is on his way to replace a heating unit venter motor because it’s making a lot of noise. The narrator says the device isn’t faulty; replacement is simply a precaution.
The Age of The HVAC System
The lifespan of a heating unit depends on how well the system has been maintained. However, the older the HVAC, the higher the power bill. A heating unit shouldn’t be in service for more than 25 years, meaning people with units approaching this age should replace them.
Air Filter Replacement
Homeowners should replace the air filter in their heating and ventilation units every three months to ensure the unit runs efficiently.
