Things you can check:

- Is the filter extremely dirty?
A hot house is sometimes the result of a clogged filter which prevents airflow.
- Is your thermostat set properly? Does it need new batteries?
Frequently asked questions:
- When should I get my central heating unit or heat pump inspected?
- How long will my central heating system or heat pump last under normal conditions?
- How often should I change my filter in my heat pump or furnace?
- How often should I have my gas furnace or electric heat pump serviced?
Here are some short answers:
- Heating systems consisting of either, gas packs, heat pump or electric furnaces should be inspected at least once a year.
- The longevity of your furnace is 8.5 to 17 years (even though the chamber may have a longer warranty), there are several other major components that will conk out before the chamber does. Start considering replacement (even due to efficiency) during the 8 to 12 years.
- Gas packs - 8 to 12 years - the average warranty of the heating chamber is 10 years and there is a reason for this - that is how long the company feels it will safely last! So count on replacement during this period. As in the case of the furnace, there are several other major components that will bite the dust around the same time.
- Heat pumps - The quality of heat pumps have increased dramatically over the past few years - they will heat much better and have higher heating vent temperatures as opposed to those made even 7 to 10 years ago.
REFRIGERATOR REPAIR TIPS
If your refrigerator is not running or is not cold enough...
- Turn the thermostat up to the next highest setting. If it comes on, let it run for 24 hours and check temperature to confirm it is working properly.
- Clear/remove anything blocking the air flow around the outside of the refrigerator (on top, underneath, behind, beside, in front of, etc.). Allow 3" of clearance all the way around.
- If there are condenser coils on the rear of the box, make sure the box is several inches from the wall and that nothing is on top at the rear, blocking the heat from coming off the coils.
- If the condenser coils are underneath the refrigerator, clean the coils with a vacuum cleaner thoroughly at least twice a year.
If the door is sticking or not closing properly...
Wipe off the face of the gasket with a wet rag and make sure the interior shelves, drawers and food are not preventing the door from closing from the inside.
DISHWASHER REPAIR TIPS
If the dishes are not getting clean...
- Make sure the water is hot enough. It should be at least 140 degrees, which is hot enough to burn you - VERY HOT! If it is not hot enough, turn the hot water heater thermostat up to a higher setting.
- Make sure the lower spray arm is unobstructed and turning freely.
- Make sure the bottom inside the dishwasher is clean and free of debris.
- Make sure you are following the proper loading procedures. Use the proper amount of detergent and make sure the detergent is fresh (check expiration or "best if used by" date.
Tech Tip - If the inside of your dishwasher is beginning to brown and form mineral stains, put Limeaway (available at your grocery store) or Tang Citrus Drink into the tank during the wash cycle. The citric acid from these products will remove the mineral buildup and restore the finish.
