With the cold weather on the way many of us will be turning up our thermostats as the temperatures drop and local heating companies say that means a lot of extra business for them as people discover their heating systems aren't working properly.

Delcor heating, cooling and plumbing service manager Bruce Canty says calls already started picking up Monday, and says dirty coils and frozen heat pumps are some of the most common problems for those who haven't had their systems serviced recently.

With temperatures expected to fall into the 20s overnight for the next few days, he's expecting many more calls related to those problems.

"A lot of people, they haven't been getting their equipment serviced properly or any type of maintenance. So when we get to these cold temperatures then we find out that the systems haven't been operating properly like they think they are," said Canty.

Canty says the easiest way to avoid having your heating system break down on you when it gets cold is to have it serviced once a year so workers can catch problems before they start.

    with the economy like it is, its hard to come up with the money to have all units checked for winter. end of summer first of fall is the time to do this. most people take vacations etc. cut back on vacations, etc. and plan ahead and put that money into servicing your units and be a step ahead..good luck all.. stay warm, I feel the worse is yet to come.
