As winter weather settles upon Ingleside, Texas, you want to feel confident that your heating system will keep your family warm all season long. Not sure how much longer your furnace or heat pump will last? Look for these three signs that your heating system is in need of immediate repair.
Your Utility Bills Keep Increasing
You might think that higher utility bills result from rising energy costs, but they can actually signal a significant problem with your heating system. As your system ages, regular HVAC maintenance is even more important to keep it running efficiently.
Systems that need maintenance or repairs will soon become more expensive to operate. If you notice that your utility bills have steadily increased in recent months, call our team of HVAC experts to find out whether your system is on the verge of breaking down.
Your Home’s Temperature Rarely Feels Consistent
As heating systems lose efficiency, they often struggle to maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home. That means your living room might feel chilly while the bedrooms frequently feel too hot.
Rather than constantly adjusting the thermostat and wasting energy, call our team. We’ll check to see how efficiently the system is performing and make recommendations such as: increasing the level of insulation in your home, upgrading your thermostat, or replacing your heating system.
Indoor Air Quality Is Consistently Poor
Your home’s HVAC system is your first line of defense against indoor air contamination. As long as you replace the air filter every 90 days and service the system once a year, it should keep your home’s air supply free from dust, pet dander and mold.
Without regular maintenance, however, dust and dirt buildup can compromise your indoor air quality. Our experienced techs can quickly determine whether your home’s air quality issues are the result of a serious problem with your heating system or if you just need a fresh air filter.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, don’t wait another minute to get assistance with your heating system. Call the heating experts at Bodine-Scott Air Conditioning Co. today at 888-481-8511.
