If you have heating questions for the Land O’ Lakes heating experts at Ierna’s Heating and Cooling, call us any time. We’ve also taken a moment to put together some of the most common heating repair questions that we get from our customers.
Why do I need a tune-up once a year?
We recommend scheduling a heating tune-up with Ierna’s Heating and Cooling once a year and before the heating season begins. This helps to prevent any problems or repairs during the colder months when you need your heater the most. Keep in mind that you should hire a qualified HVAC technician to perform any professional tune-ups to ensure that the job is done right the first time.
Why should I clean my furnace room before a repair?
Whether your furnace is in a basement or utility room, it is important to keep the area around the furnace free of debris and dirt. Clearing away storage items will also help make the equipment more accessible for repairs or an annual inspection.
Why should I not cover the outdoor unit of my heat pump system in the winter?
Because your heat pump system heats your home in the winter, it still needs to draw in air from outside. This means that you’ll need to ensure that there’s adequate airflow. Covering your outdoor unit would prevent that. It’s also a good idea to make sure that nothing else is blocking the unit and to clean the outside if it looks dirty. Dirt can clog the system and cause a number of problems that could potentially require a repair service.
