Ensuring your HVAC system is performing well during the unpredictable winter season is vital. Beavercreek Heating & Cooling expert technicians are here to help you stay warm and cozy at home all winter long. However,  many frequent problems can occur within your home heating system, so we wanted to list a few common questions homeowners might have. 

1. I Have A Bad Smell. What Does This Mean? 
If you have a lingering smell, it is best to call a professional right away. On the other hand, this can be caused by an air filter that needs to be changed so, check that first. Don’t try to fix the issue yourself, because something serious could be going on within your HVAC system.

Perhaps your heat not blowing out so well can be due to a loose fan belt or a dirty motor. There could be a fast solution for this. First, clean the blower fan and the area around it. If that doesn’t fix it, the fan belt probably needs to be replaced, and you will need to contact a professional service provider right away. The last thing you want to do is DIY anything on your furnace yourself.

Turning your thermostat off will help prevent any further issues from occurring.
