Why Ask Questions?
Having a Franklin furnace repair performed before colder weather comes in is very important. But do you know what questions to ask your technician to make sure your heater keeps running as it should? Before getting maintenance done, it’s best to know what issues are going on in your home and the best questions to ask your technician when they’re taking care of your heating system.
Keeping up with your heating system’s maintenance can lead to a warm and comfortable home during the winter. If your Franklin home is in need of heater maintenance, contact our professionals today at Deets Mechanical to get started!
1. What Temperature Should I Maintain In My Home?
Weather can be unpredictable even if it seems like normal annual temperatures. A good rule of thumb is to set your thermostat to 68 degrees Fahrenheit when you’re home and lower it while you’re away or sleeping. Remember, putting your HVAC system through sharp temperature adjustments can cause mechanical problems.
Your household may be accustomed to the temperature settings that you set up when your thermostat was first installed. However, it never hurts to have one of our technicians put those worries to rest when they come to service your system! Ask this question and put your worries to bed.
2. Should I Switch To A Smart Thermostat?
There is no harm in using a traditional thermostat to manually adjust your indoor temperature. But as smart thermostats become a normal part of households, a manual thermostat pales in comparison.
Before you invest in a smart thermostat, always ask your Deets Mechanical technician what kind would be best for your system. The biggest appeal to a smart thermostat is how accessible and user-friendly it is for homeowners! When making the switch always ask the question of what device is compatible with your HVAC system.
3. How Do I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?
While you might be used to the air inside your home, your indoor air quality (IAQ) may be poor. By keeping up with routine duct cleaning and filter changes, you can maintain healthier indoor air.
Improving your IAQ also helps keep your household healthy when you have your heater running. It never hurts to ask your Deets Mechanical technician about your indoor air quality and what you can do as an at-home remedy to improve it. Ask your technician about products and services that can make your indoor air space cleaner and healthier.
4. What Should I Know About My Heating Unit?
You should know the age and other basic information about your heating unit. This is helpful for professional furnace repairs and when narrowing down what could be wrong with your system. But there can be more elements of your heating unit that you may not know about.
It’s always helpful to ask about the more technical parts of your system as it can help prevent issues from occurring. Asking your technician about the services they’re providing can teach you more about what to look out for when something may be off with your HVAC unit.
5. How Often Should I Schedule Heater Maintenance?
On average, your HVAC system should be maintained twice a year, once in the summer and once in the winter. This helps get the heater ready for the cold season and identifies any necessary repairs.
Some units may have different maintenance requirements, or your household might need more frequent tune-ups as a preventative measure to stave off illness. In those situations, it is best to ask one of our technicians at Deets Mechanical about the best options for maintaining your system.
