3 Tips for a Better Heating Experience

freezing-womanThere are certain areas of the country where homeowners only have to run their heaters occasionally. This is obviously not the case with heating in New Hampshire. You run your heater almost nonstop throughout the long, tough heating season. And you need to know for certain that it will be there for you when you need it most. That’s why we’ve put together some simple tips for ensuring a better heating experience.

These tips won’t just help you heat your home more effectively and reliably. They’ll help you to heat your home more efficiently, as well. With winters as long and cold as ours, the last thing you want is an inefficient heater driving up your energy costs! Save money, live more comfortably, and enjoy the heating performance that we know you deserve!

Change Your Air Filter Regularly

This is a big one, and it is one that far too few homeowners take seriously enough. Changing your air filter regularly, ensuring that there is always a fresh filter in place, is easily the best thing that you yourself can do for your heater. If you use a forced air heating system, keep that filter fresh!

A fresh air filter has many benefits. It reduces airflow resistance, so it actually makes it easier for your heater to force heated air throughout the house. Not only does this allow the heater to heat your home more effectively, but it also saves you money. The less work that your heater has to put in, the less energy it will consume in heating your home.

Keep Vents Clear

An issue that a lot of homeowners run into is blocking off their heating vents. Most don’t do this on purpose (but definitely don’t try to zone your heating system by shutting vents!). Instead, things just get shifted around. Blocking the heating vent with furniture or kids’ toys is going to impede airflow.

Again, you can wind up over-straining your heater, as it struggles to heat your home efficiently. You may also wind up causing the system to overheat! Don’t allow any clutter around your heating vents, and your system will reward you with a better performance.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

Nothing is going to benefit your heater more than routine maintenance. When you give a skilled professional the chance to go over your entire heater with a fine-toothed comb, you can rest assured in knowing that your heater is in prime working condition. Developing problems can be caught early on and addressed promptly, and serious damages can be avoided.

Plus, your system will work at peak performance and efficiency levels. Investing a small amount in routine maintenance means a great return on that investment. Better comfort at a better price! During a harsh winter season, what could be better than that?

So there you have it. Some simple ways in which you can enjoy the very best that your heater has to offer.
