There are a variety of different types of heaters. Let’s briefly talk about three of the most popular types of heaters and how each of them works:
While there are many other types of heaters, all heaters operate relatively in the same way: through a series of intricately moving parts! If any one of these parts become damaged or worn down over time, then your heater won’t function properly. This is why HVAC maintenance is so important.
On average, regardless of type, most heaters need to be serviced at least once per year. For best results, you should have your heater serviced once every fall right before heavy usage in the winter. Trust us: the last thing you’ll want to deal with is a broken heater during the winter months!
So, how do I know when my heater needs a service? I don’t know when it was last serviced or if the previous owners had it serviced regularly!
If it’s been so long that you genuinely have no idea when it was last serviced, then it’s definitely time to get your heater checked out!
