Warm is Where the Heart Is
Maintaining your heating system is important for many reasons. A properly maintained system will protect your health, keep you and your family safe, operate more efficiently, and last longer.
How Do I Determine If I Need Heater Maintenance?
It is a good idea to have your heater inspected annually. Insects can invade a heating system and so can various other critters. These creatures can cause damage such as eating the insulation off of electrical wires. A system can crack which can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide poisoning. A professional HVAC technician understands the whole system so is able to quickly and efficiently inspect, diagnose, and fix any problems that crop up.
Why Is Heater Maintenance Important
Heater maintenance is important for a variety of reasons. First, a well maintained system is less likely to have mechanical malfunctions or faulty wires which cuts down on the chance of a fire. Second, cracks in the system will be found with routine inspections which means your family won’t be inhaling carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide poisoning is serious and is very hard to detect when it has poisoned your home’s air.
Third, a heating system will work much better if it is properly maintained. Everyone wants the heat to come on quickly and efficiently when they flip the switch or turn the thermostat. Last, having your heating system inspected annually has the added perk of the technicians expertise. When inspecting your system the technician may make small adjustments that add up to greater efficiency. These adjustments mean savings in heating dollars each month.
What are Some Signs That A Heating System Needs Maintenance?
Sometimes you won’t notice a small problem until the symptom is a large problem that needs taken care of professionally right away. Other times, you may notice small signs that it is time to have some maintenance performed on your heating system. For instance, smelling a dusty odor may mean that your duct work should be cleaned, or seeing signs of insects or other critters means you should have your system inspected for creature damage. If you notice any blockages those should be addressed right away as well.
Having a professionally trained HVAC technician perform regular maintenance such as, filter changers, oiling the motor and bearings, and inspecting wiring and duct work will keep your system lasting longer, and keep you and your family safe.
