Don’t Overlook the Importance of Heating Maintenance

When the heat of summer starts setting in once more, homeowners in this area are quick to get their air conditioning systems tuned up to handle the challenges ahead. Because our heating season is considerably milder, though, some people seem to think that heating maintenance is not quite as important. This could not be further from the truth.

Before putting your heater into regular rotation, you need to dial our number and schedule a professional heating tune-up in Prosperity, SC. The benefits are far too great to pass up. Call now to have your heater prepared for the coming season!

What Does Heating Maintenance Entail?

You may think that simply replacing your air filter is enough to ensure a great performance from your heating system, but you’re way off base if this is the case. Professional heating maintenance covers much more than this, and it is not the sort of thing that even the most skilled DIY enthusiast can replicate. Heating maintenance is just far too comprehensive. When we tune up your system we’ll:

  • Monitor flue draft
  • Check blower and fan motor bearings if applicable
  • Check, replace or leave 1” filters
  • Inspect furnace and heat exchangerRemove and clean burners if applicable
  • Inspect ductwork
  • Test defrost cycle and heat strips
  • Test thermostat
  • Visually check wiring connections
  • Test safety controls

And more!

Also, remember that you must schedule maintenance twice a year for those systems that run all year long. We’re talking here about ductless mini splits, heat pumps, and geothermal systems. If you have a system doing twice the work of a standard heater or AC, it requires twice the maintenance. We can get it done right, no matter what type of system you may use. That way, you can heat your home safely, effectively, and efficiently.
