"How Can I Tell If My System Was a High Quality Install?"

How are you preparing for the cold winter months?

Does your heating system need to be replaced?

How do you find this out?

Everyone thinking about heating in Ann Arbor seems to ask similar questions every fall. The worst time you want to find out that your heating system needs to be repaired or replaced is in the middle of winter! If your system goes down in cold weather, it can cause burst pipes, water leaks, and other costly damages. Luckily, there are a few simple checks you can make to see if everything is in good shape.

Water heaters generally last around 10-15 years. If the hot water coming out of your faucet is muddy, rusty, or smells/tastes metallic, it may be a sign that your water heater is poor quality or in need of replacement. Mineral buildup on the internal parts is normal, and you can reduce this by regularly flushing your water heater.

The most obvious sign that your furnace isn’t up to par is that your home is cold! If you crank up the thermostat and nothing happens, there may be a problem with the thermostat panel and wiring, but it could also mean that heat is being lost somewhere. If your roof has lots of ice in the winter, it could mean heat is escaping your system, entering your attic, and creating condensation and ice.
