It never hurts to seek help. So, when it comes to the comfort and safety of your home, there are experts who can answer your questions. Do you know how to get the most from your heating system? How often should your heating or cooling system undergo maintenance?

Pay close attention to your heating and cooling systems, and always reach out to an expert if any of the following applies to you.

Your Heating or Cooling System Just Isn’t Working For You

Many people set up heating and cooling systems, and don’t think much further than that. However, not paying attention to your systems and how you’re using them can ultimately lead to under-performance and possible unseen dangers.

If you’re worrying that your existing system is less than efficient, or that it’s simply not doing its job, it’s time to call for support. A reliable installer or expert will be happy and able to amend any poor quality work, perform routine maintenance, or even amend or upgrade the system if required. In fact, it’s always a good idea to get operational maintenance regularly, even if your system is running well, as this helps to avoid any breakdowns and costly repairs in the future.

You’re Paying Too Much On Your Bills

A good way to tell whether you need help from a home comfort expert is that your system is costing too much to run. Both your gas and electricity bills could start spiking, and you may not even think you’re using your services more than usual. Make sure you keep an eye on the usage, not just the overall dollar amount of your bill as the rates can also fluctuate.

Major manufacturers are able to estimate what you can expect in terms of running costs for their new systems. However, if you notice any sudden spikes in your monthly bills, it’s clear there may be a problem. It’s time to call in someone who can check everything is as it should be.

It’s Been a While Since Your Last Inspection

For safety, especially with gas systems, you should arrange regular inspections of your units. Servicing, including a comprehensive Carbon Monoxide (CO) leak test and negative pressure test, once every two years – at least – will help to ensure there is no risk of dangerous, potentially deadly, gas escaping into your home, giving you peace of mind while using your heating system.

Gas safety experts will take a look at your system to ensure it’s running safely. This will also ensure that your systems are not deteriorating and not about to break down altogether. If it’s been more than two years since your last check, it’s time to get in touch.
