It is already time to turn on the furnace in your Boise, Idaho home. If you live in a part of the country that is cold during the winter, you spend a lot of money on heating costs. Some people are spending up to 50% of their monthly budget on heating.
Heating costs have gone up rapidly in the past two years. You may find that you are paying twice as much to heat your home. What can you do to save some of this money?
Start by walking through your home and identifying the areas where heated air is leaking out. Check around your doors, windows, fireplaces and any drafty areas. There are many ways to close off leaks. You can caulk, weather strip and use plastic to seal off drafts. Put door sweeps on all of your outside doors. If your Boise, Idaho home is poorly insulated, the additional money spent to insulate it will pay for itself in reduced heating costs. The more you prevent heated air from leaking out, the more you will save.
Most people never think of this, but you should minimize the usage of ventilation fans and kitchen hood fans during the winter. I’ve heard it said that one bathroom fan can pull all of the warm air out of an average sized house in a little over an hour. This could increase your heating costs by a surprising amount.
Our Boise HVAC technicians will always arrive with a fully stocked truck, which we like to call our ‘Warehouse on Wheels’. This means that most repairs can be done while we are at your Boise home saving you time and money. There are a lot of service companies who purposely don’t carry parts. By not stocking their vans, they will have to run to the supply house and pick-up your needed parts. Guess who pays for their travel time? That’s right, YOU do!
Regardless if you need a tune-up or a repair, Home Heating & Cooling can help your home with all of your heating repair needs.
Like heat pumps, furnaces keep your home warm in the winter and serve as an important part of your air conditioning system in the summer. In a furnace, gas or oil is combusted in a burner and then heat produced from that reaction passes through a heat exchanger where it is transferred to the air distribution system. The ductwork throughout a home carries and disperses the conditioned air and the flue or vent pipe releases the byproducts, such as carbon dioxide and water vapor, outside the home.

Good heating systems are important to every home. Whether they have centralized heating units or just the local ones, both still calls for proper maintenance. Even if modern advances in technology have improved heating system operations nowadays, machines will remain machines, and they will always need repairs along the way. For this particular part, you are going to need professional hands to handle your heating repairs issues.
Hiring professionals for heating repairs inside your house is always a smart move. This will both save you time and money, lots of it. If you have no prior knowledge in repairs to begin with, you will only do more to the existing damage, which then sums up to costly repairs. You wouldn’t want that, would you?
