Heating System Maintenance
To keep your heating and cooling systems working safely and efficiently, manufacturers recommend having them professionally serviced once a year. Annual inspections and professional cleanings ensure your heating system is running properly, can prevent unexpected problems in the future, and provide peace of mind for you and your family.
Benefits of Annual Heating System Maintenance:
1. Lower Utility Bills
According to the EPA, heating equipment that is maintained annually uses 13% less fuel than units that are not – lowering your monthly utility bills. Studies show that with regular tune-ups, a unit will maintain up to 95% of its original efficiency.
Service technicians will clean and tune your system, including checking for cracks, ensuring no harmful fumes or gases are being emitted, examining the electrical system, and inspecting your fuel lines for leaks. Annual maintenance of your heating and cooling system provides you the peace of mind in knowing that your equipment is running safely.
3. Fewer Repairs
Having your furnace or boiler checked and cleaned every year allows your contractor to check and repair any problems before they become BIG problems. By preventing larger, more expensive repairs, annual heating system maintenance pays for itself.
4. Extend the life of your heating equipment
Furnace, boilers, and heat pumps operate the best when they are regularly maintained. An annual tune-up can extend the life of your heating equipment by as much as 20-30% which can translate into 5-10 years of additional usage for a furnace or boiler.
Dirt is the biggest enemy of your home’s heating and air conditioning system. It can waste fuel which reduces the energy efficiency of your furnace or boiler. Having your heating system professionally cleaned is one of the most important parts of regular heating system maintenance along with lubrication and belt adjustment.
