It’s Time to Tune-Up Your Heater

Nice blue cottage. With spruce, clouds, and snow

We’ve finally reached that time of year where things are starting to cool off. It might not be cold enough for you to fire up your heater all day long, but we know you’re definitely having those days where you might need to turn on your heater in the evening. Colder weather is ahead of us. We want to do our part today to make sure you’re prepared for what’s to come. 

If you haven’t already, we suggest you turn your attention to your heater in Crystal Lake, IL. If you don’t know where to start, then we can help guide you in the right direction. Let’s go over the basics below…

How to Prepare Your Heater

There are three key things that you should do to get your heater ready for the season ahead. 

  1. Reflect 

The first thing that we want you to do is reflect on the past experiences that you’ve had with your home’s heater. 

Think back to last winter in particular. How were you feeling? Can you say that your heater served you well? Think back and note any signs of trouble like…

  • Problems getting your heater to turn on (lagging or unresponsiveness)
  • Difficulty getting warm
  • Difficulty staying warm
  • Energy bills spiking without any clear cause
  • Odd, loud, or new noises coming from the system
  • Weird scents coming from the system when you turn on your heater
  • Low airflow
  • Short cycling

These are all signs that your heater was having real trouble trying to perform even if you didn’t feel like it was. You might have been able to get by last year, but we don’t want you to just “get by” when it comes to your comfort. Your heating should be accessible and easy. We’ll help you make sure that this is the case.

  1. Prepare

The next thing you’re going to want to do is prepare for everything the season has in store. We want to help you with this as well.
