    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.

  • 3 Common Central Heating Problems Ace Plumbing Often Deals With


    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:

    Furnace Failure
    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.

    Uneven Heating
    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.
