Now is the perfect time of year to check over your furnace and make sure that it is prepared for the upcoming temperature drop. Your unit will be working hard over the next few months to deliver heat to you throughout the coldest time of the year. As providers of HVAC services in Hoffman Estates and surrounding areas, we have seen common flare-ups that impact the safety and comfort of Chicagoland families. Stay one step ahead of developing problems and learn about what may go wrong.
Dirty, Clogged Filters
If you notice that some rooms in your home are colder than others, this likely means that air isn’t properly circulating throughout your home. A dirty filter could be the culprit behind your home reaching its maximum heating potential. Make sure that you are replacing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis so that the energy throughout your home can properly circulate.
Freezing Pipes or Coils
As temperatures drop, the potential for your pipes to freeze increases. Frozen pipes are the result of a decrease in temperature and ice forming over the hydronic systems, keeping steam and hot water from passing through your pipes. Make sure to keep ice off of your pipes and avoid potentially large issues by turning off your home’s water supply and getting rid of any existing ice from the pipes. Of course, our team at Blue Frost is happy to help.
Carbon Monoxide Leaks
Homes with heating systems inherently come with the potential to leak carbon monoxide. It is an odorless, tasteless gas that can cause serious health threats to you and your family. You’ll want to ensure your home is equipped with carbon monoxide sensors to make sure levels are in check.
