The heating season is here; are you prepared?

October 6th, 2014

In cities like Vancouver, heating issues are more than small potatoes.  High altitudes and cold winters make proper heating a must for any property, and as the summer winds down, you want to make sure your system is ready for it. Regardless of whether you have a traditional heating system, a heat pump, a geothermal system, or a radiant heating system, the heating season is here; are you prepared? Here are a few helpful tips to make sure.

First of all, make sure you schedule a routine maintenance session from qualified professional as soon as the summer season ends. They will take a look at your heating system and tighten any loose bolts or fittings as well as cleaning dirty components and other “tune-up” duties. Not only does this ensure the system gets cleaned up after an idle summer, but it lets the technician spot any potential trouble spots and schedule a repair session prior to winter kicking in. Better to make repairs before you need the heating system than deal with it breaking down in the middle of a snowstorm.

In addition, you may want to consider upgrading your system with new components like a programmable thermostat or zone controls. The former lets you turn the heat on and off automatically – saving time and money. Both help you save on energy costs as well as improving the overall comfort levels for your property.
