The Factors that Affect Your Heater

Here are the factors that affect your home’s heater:

Did you have maintenance?

This is where you need to start. If you didn’t schedule maintenance early on in the fall season then it’s negatively impacting your home’s heater. You need to prime your heater before the season that is ahead. We like to compare maintenance work to a nice stretch, pep talk, and good training season ahead of a game. If you take all the necessary steps, it’s sure to set you up for success. If you skip out on them, you’re looking at a world of hurt ahead of you. This could include preventable repairs or even a breakdown in your future.

Do you run your heater responsibly?

Now, let’s talk about how you’re running your home’s heater. Believe it or not, there are some ways to properly run a heater. We know that you’ve probably grown up with heaters in your home living here in Colorado. It’s not exactly something that you turn to an instruction manual for.

Although we don’t want you to go back to the bare basics, you can take a moment to refresh yourself on some best practices. Keep these tips in mind the next time you want to run your heater:

  • Choose a mild thermostat setting
  • Upgrade your home’s thermostat (smart or Wi-Fi is the way to go)
  • Make sure you have a heating maintenance appointment annually
  • Know when you need more (don’t struggle with a bad heater)
  • Insulate your home
  • Open up your curtains and/or blinds at the brightest points of the day

Do what you need to remember these tips. Some of our clients write out a few and place them next to their thermostat. Whatever helps is what you should do!

Do you listen to the signs of trouble?
