“What Can Help My Heating System?”


It’s finally starting to get cold in Irvine. We’ve had some windy days, some chilly mornings, and some frigid evenings even the past few weeks. We know that turning on your heater has become part of your daily morning routine. Because of this, you might have started wondering… “What can I do to help my heater?”

Sometimes your heater just needs you to start following better practices or a few tips to help it run better. Efficiency helps everything—your comfort, your wallet, and your heater’s lifespan. We’re experts at everything heating in Irvine, CA. We want to help you out with staying warm for the rest of this winter season.

The Tips You Need to Know

Keep these tips in your back pocket for the rest of the heating season:

1.      Let Some Light In

We’re lucky to live in Southern California for a bevy of reasons. One of them is our weather and the amount of clear, sunny days that we get to experience. Even when it gets cold here, we still have the sun shining down on us for the most part. When there are days like this, make sure that you open up your curtains and blinds to let in the sunlight. It raises your home’s internal temperature.

2.      Wear A Couple Layers

If you’re really struggling to get the chill off of your bones in the morning or in the evening, you’re going to need to layer up. Grab some thick socks and a nice cozy sweater to make the coldest parts of the day easier.

3.      Get A New Filter

A clean filter can help your home’s heater. Clean filters set a great groundwork for your home’s heater. You don’t want your heater working past dirt that’s accumulated over the past few seasons. A new filter is a fresh start.

4.      Maintain

You should maintain your home’s heater every single fall. This is the best way for you to give your home’s heater a stretch before the race that is the winter season. If you haven’t already scheduled an appointment, it’s not too late to do so now. You can still get a maintenance appointment with our team.

5.      Insulate

It’s worthwhile to add some weatherstripping or caulking to your home. Drafts are bad news. Your heating will slip right out through these cracks and you’ll be left shivering.
