Your central heating system consists of a furnace, ductwork, registers, and return air vents. The furnace creates heat that is distributed throughout your home by your ducts. This video outlines a few things you can do to ensure that your central heating system functions properly and efficiently.
There are components of your heating system that need to be serviced by a professional on an annual basis. Heating repair specialists can inspect and diagnose problems with your furnace and the rest of your heating system to ensure proper airflow, efficient operation, and maximum safety.
To learn more about maintaining your central heating system or to get your questions answered, contact Ace Plumbing at (866) 999-4703.
Your central heating system works very hard during the coldest part of the year to keep your home comfortable, and it can encounter problems if it is not properly maintained. An older system may experience issues even if you perform regular maintenance. By understanding some of the most common problems that heating repair services face, you can learn more about maintaining your system. Here are three of the most common issues:
One of the main reasons furnaces fail is because of a dirty air filter. Though air filters help promote indoor air quality, their main function is to protect the interior components of your central heating system. This includes the blower motor area of your furnace, which is vulnerable to dust and dirt particles. Without the protection of a clean filter, airflow will be greatly reduced and your furnace will eventually fail.
Improperly-sized systems are common, especially in older homes. If your furnace is oversized, it will operate in short bursts, rapidly warming the areas near the thermostat to the desired temperature while leaving other areas of your home uncomfortably cool. Uneven heating throughout your home can be caused by several other issues, including leaky or improperly-sized ductwork.
High Utility Costs
High utility bills can be an indicator of several issues. For example, a localized problem in your furnace can cause it to use more energy than necessary. Neglecting furnace maintenance is one of the most common reasons why homeowners face high energy bills. High heating costs can also be caused by issues in your home’s building envelope, where energy loss makes your heating system work harder around the clock.

Plumbing that isn’t properly prepared for cold weather can result in burst pipes and other costly problems. With freezing winter nights ahead, thinking about ways to winterize the pipes and faucets in your home is more important than ever. Following these tips while working with a licensed Sacramento plumber is your surest way to a smooth winter season:
Watch the Weather
Freezing nights don’t happen often in Sacramento, but when they do, you want to be prepared. Always watch the weather for reports of freezing temperatures. If a cool night is approaching, make sure the water valves to hose bibs are turned off and that all water is cleared from pipes. Insulating pipes can be another good way to prevent frozen and burst pipes. Foam rubbers sleeves and fiberglass insulation are both good insulators that can be found at most home improvement stores.
In the summer, water leaks are a messy inconvenience that can raise your water bill. In the winter, they can cause serious damage to your plumbing. If you suspect you have a water leak, turn off all water-using appliances and check your water meter. If it is still rising, you likely have a leak. Shut off the main water valve of your home and call a professional plumber right away.
Leave the Heat On
If you’re thinking about winterizing a vacant home, leaving your heating unit running at a low temperature can make your job much easier. This will help ensure that no structural damage to your plumbing takes place. It is important to watch out for “cold spots,” or places like crawl spaces and garages where temperatures are especially low. Make sure any pipes running through these places are well insulated.
If you’re looking for ways to winterize your home this winter season, getting a full inspection from a highly rated plumbing service is a great place to start.
