How Can We Help? Let Us Reach Out To You.
If you want to save money and get the most out of your heating system, maintenance is mandatory.
It’s essential for optimal performance, and it will make you nearly bulletproof when it comes to possible future breakdowns.
Fortunately, most of the heating maintenance procedures you need to do are simple, and at 128 we have lots of HVAC expertise when it comes to preventive maintenance.
We have great technicians who are qualified professionals, and they can explain how preventive maintenance works and the procedures you’ll need to perform. We can service your heating system as needed, too, so you’ll be covered on all fronts.
It helps to know the particulars, though, so let’s walk you through your heating system and explain the typical maintenance procedures that are necessary. When we’re done, you’ll understand why 128 is the best possible choice to handle all your heating system maintenance and repair needs.
HVAC Maintenance Tasks Start With Your Furnace
The first step in any maintenance process is to check your thermostat. It will tell you if everything’s working correctly and give you some clues as to what might be going wrong if there are problems.
If there is a problem with your thermostat, the solution could be as simple as tightening an electrical connection and verifying that the system controls are working properly.
If the problem does turn out to be more complicated, it’s time to call 128 and let us tackle the problem for you.
Next, let’s talk about filters. They may not sound important, but if they’re dirty or they haven’t been changed in a while, they can cost you a lot of money. In fact, they can even shut down your entire system if they’re old or grimy enough.
Generally speaking, they should be changed once a year, but the service manuals for your furnace or boiler may tell you that you need to do that more frequently for your heating system.
Heat Pump: The Key to Your Furnace
The heat pump is the main element of your heating system—think of it as a beating heart that keeps you warm and comfortable in any kind of weather.
Heat pumps do require regular cleaning, though, and if you miss this step you may notice that you have trouble pushing enough heat into your home to get the thermostat up to the desired temperature.
Vent cleaning is important, too. Pet hair, dirt, and debris can accumulate in your vents and ducts over time, so it’s important to have them cleaned professionally.
We know the ins and outs of every kind of heating system on the market, which means we’ll be able to clean your vents quickly and efficiently. We’ll also retest your system after we do this, and we guarantee any and all work we perform on your home.
HVAC Tune-Up Service
All of these procedures are usually part of a heating system tune-up, which typically starts with an inspection. These are normally done once a year, starting with the furnace.
That also means examining the vent system and the intake grills, which could be blocked by dirt or debris. In the furnace itself, we’ll check for any signs of damage or corrosion, and we’ll make sure the blower is free of debris as well.
Within the furnace, we’ll check both the burner and the flame sensor, as well as the belts in the furnace. They should be checked for signs of excess wear and tear, too. There are many moving parts in your heating system that require lubrication, so we’ll make sure that gets done properly.
Once all of these procedures have been performed, we’ll verify that all the safety controls are operational. Most furnaces have a standard startup cycle that needs to be verified, so we’ll also do this as part of our visit.
Heating Maintenance and Tune-Up Benefits
There are many benefits to tune-ups and ongoing maintenance that many people don’t know about. Saving money is one of the biggest benefits, you may also need to do these checks to maintain the validity of your warranty.
This will give you the coverage you need if anything breaks or goes wrong. The technicians at 128 have experience dealing with nearly every type of warranty.
Another benefit to heating maintenance is reducing the risk of breakdowns during the cold weather season. These can result in unexpected ancillary problems like frozen pipes. Call us before the temperature drops and we will help you get ahead of any problems.
These kinds of calls can help you extend the life of your furnace, which can ultimately keep a lot of money in your pocket over the long haul.
A well-maintained furnace can last for over a decade, and every year you’re able to extend its life and keep it running efficiently will save you the major expense of having to purchase a new one.
