furnace blowing cold air

Check Your Thermostat First Then Your Air Filter

Surprisingly, many heating problems are due to thermostat malfunctioning. If your system runs constantly, has short running cycles, or doesn’t respond to temperature adjustments, suspect a faulty thermostat.  Typically, most last only about 10 years. So, if you’re not getting heat and your thermostat is old, you may just need to replace it. Moreover, over the years, dust can accumulate inside causing it to malfunction. When was the last time you cleaned your thermostat?

Generally, you need to clean your thermostat every season. The accumulation of dirt and dust inside can increase your energy bills by 7% and shorten its lifespan. After removing the cover, gently clean with a very soft brush. While you’ve got the cover off, change the batteries or check that all the wires are firmly connected.

Another often overlooked simple fix is changing your air filter. Incredibly, a dirty air filter is the top reason for maintenance problems with your system. Primarily, a clogged air filter restricts airflow putting additional strain on your HVAC. This additional strain causes your system to work harder thus consuming more energy. Furthermore, this additional strain could cause your motor to overheat and burn out. There’s a simple, inexpensive solution to what would become a major, expensive issue.

Have You Thought About a Service Plan?

One way to ensure your HVAC system is running efficiently is with scheduled servicing. Whatever type of system you have, Aspire Heating & Cooling can check your HVAC. For over 25 years, our NATE-certified technicians have been repairing and servicing all types of systems.

Undoubtedly, a routine service plan can save you money. Over time, dirt and dust can accumulate on your coils causing your unit to work harder. This puts a strain on your system and results in higher energy bills. Additionally, a poorly-maintained system won’t last as long as a well-maintained one.

What Will a Service Call Provide?

Indeed, it’s true that different companies provide the same basic services. This includes lubrication, cleaning coils, checking for leaks, and checking the thermostat. However, some companies will add on extras increasing the price. Additionally, different types of systems require particular types of servicing raising the price as well. For example, gas furnaces have burners whereas heat pumps do not.

Aspire Heating & Cooling has 2 service plans from which to choose. Our standard plan includes 2 visits annually to prepare your unit for the coming season. For an additional $50, you can sign up for our premium plan which includes a 15% discount on required repairs. Plus, you’ll receive some additional services like priority service scheduling not covered under our standard plan. Do you have questions about which service plan is right for you? Call us at 336-936-9111 and one of our friendly staff will be happy to explain the benefits of each.
