The AAction Air Holiday Heating Checklist

It’s just about that time of year when we take our breaks from working and going to school to enjoy some time with the family. The holiday season can be a relaxing time of reflection when we look back on the year that just passed and make some choices about the year ahead. However, that can get hard if your heating system is acting up and causing you a great amount of stress.

This checklist we’re going to give you is a good place to start when evaluating the condition of your heating system. If you’re noticing that it’s coming up short in a lot of areas, then you might want to contact us for heating repair in Douglas, GA. Or, if the system won’t start up at all and is constantly shutting down, a replacement might do you more good.

Either way, let’s figure out your heating problem so you can enjoy time with your family this season.

The Purpose of This Checklist

The main goal of this checklist is to help our customers stay informed. If you know what to check when the winter arrives and your heating system starts acting up, you might be better off deciding when to call for professional repairs, or when something might just be a normal occurrence. Here are a few key areas to check in your heater.

  • Check the air filter. The air filter is a vital component of your heating system. It traps contaminants like dust, dirt, pet dander, and construction debris in a way that doesn’t harm the interior components of your heating system. But if it gets overloaded, then it can actually hurt the heating process and cause your heating system to struggle to work. Make sure you change the air filter every 1–3 months and investigate this part first when something seems wrong with your system.
  • Investigate the thermostat. Sometimes an issue can be targeted to the thermostat. Remember, the thermostat is the brain of your HVAC system and it’s going to send signals to the rest of your heater. If the thermostat is miscalibrated, or set incorrectly, then it might send the wrong signals to the heater and cause it to malfunction.
  • Clear access to the vents.The main way your heating system sends heat through the rest of your home where you can feel it is by sending it through vents. The vents are an important part of the heating cycle and they can get blocked up by furniture and storage containers. Make sure your vents are clear.
  • Clean space around the system. We recommend clearing at least two feet of space between your heating system and anything else that might be stored in the basement. This is to stop it from overheating it and allow it to heat itself so that it doesn’t get too cold on those chilly days.
  • Call for help. If you check all of the things on this list and there’s still a problem at hand, then you’re going to be better off calling a professional from our team for help.
