Winter has a way of sneaking up on people. Sure, you know that temperatures are going to drop and snowflakes are going to fall. But there comes a point every winter when you look out the window and wonder: When is spring going to get here?

This is a telltale sign of cabin fever. When you’re stuck indoors and longing for warmer weather, it can take a toll on your mood and way of thinking. But what happens if your thought process becomes swayed by cabin fever? How can you know for sure that any comfort decision you make this winter will be the right one? Here to bear a hand and help you fight off the fever is Tonna Mechanical.

Uncover the truth about some of the most common HVAC myths—and how you can break the spell to make smart decisions with your heating comfort this season.

Myth #1: If It’s Running, Then It’s Fine

If everything seems A-OK with your heater, then it must be in good shape, right? Wrong. If your system is making unusual noises or needs frequent repair work, it’s important to address these warning signals. At the end of the day, there’s a big difference between cabin fever paranoia and actual problems with your HVAC system.

Learn some of the other red flags that indicate a faulty heating system, here.

Myth #2: Changing the Air Filters Is All You Need to Do

Nothing will cause cabin fever faster than a lazy day spent indoors—followed by another, and another. So, why not cure two problems with one phone call? You can get active and fight the fever while giving your heater some much-needed TLC.

While it’s easy to believe that your heater is self-sufficient, this notion couldn’t be further from the truth. Still not convinced? Think of it this way: You’re not likely to ace a test if you don’t study, right? Likewise, when you put in minimal effort with your HVAC equipment, you can only expect minimal results.

Myth #3: Hot and Cold Rooms Can’t Be Avoided
