Veteran’s Day is an important opportunity to pause and celebrate those who have served in the U. S. Armed Forces. This holiday occurs on November 11 every year in honor of the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I. Memorial services, parades, flag raising ceremonies, and pancake breakfasts at local VFW posts are some of the ways you can honor and thank all veterans for their service, commitment, and dedication.
If you do experience a heating or cooling issue this weekend, or any other day for that matter, here are some pro tips to protect your HVAC system.
Faulty Ignition Sensor
If you’ve made the switch over from cooling to heating, it’s not uncommon for autumn temperature changes to place additional stress on HVAC sensors causing them to fail. You’ll notice this when temperatures drop during the evening and mornings, and the heat is not turning on. If you have an electric furnace or heat pump, it can be a faulty ignition sensor. If you have a natural gas or propane furnace, it can be a pilot light malfunction. Either way, a service call is in order if this is something you’re experiencing.
Blower Won’t Stop Running
An HVAC blower is how heat is distributed throughout ductwork to keep you warm. A blower that won’t turn off can result in causing unnecessary strain on your system and be an energy drain. When the blower stays on after your furnace has run through its heating cycle, you’ll want to first check your thermostat. Make sure that the thermostat setting for the fan switch is set to AUTO. If the symptom continues, then it’s time to call your local HVAC professionals for a diagnosis.
Dirty Air Filters
A primary cause of HVAC symptoms in the fall is from dirty HVAC air filters. Air filters prevent dust, dirt, and other contaminants from not only building up in the HVAC system, but also from entering the indoor air in your house. Neglecting to check and change your air filters regularly can cause your HVAC system to overheat, consume a large amount of energy, and deteriorate faster than normal.
