Regular maintenance is the best way of ensuring your heating system’s longevity and ability to keep your home comfortable. HVAC companies offer different services during their annual maintenance, but there are some services they all perform. Here’s what happens when your system receives its annual tune-up.
Questions to Make Sure Your System Is Working for You
The HVAC technicians will start by asking you some questions. They’ll want to make sure you’re satisfied with your current thermostat and find out if there are cold or hot spots in your home.
Technicians will ask if your energy bills were reasonable during the past winter. They might ask if you’ve changed your carbon monoxide detector’s batteries and if you’ve heard any strange noises from your heating system. IT Landes in Harleysville, PA, offers HVAC Comfort Agreements so your heating system is well-maintained. This protects your investment in your home’s heating system.
Items Checked on Your Heating System
If you have a forced-air system, as most homeowners do, there are many things in your furnace that the technician will inspect and clean. They will check the filter and replace it as appropriate. They clean dust and soot from the combustion chamber and examine the heat exchanger for signs of corrosion or cracking.
Technicians will check the pilot light and gas pressure. They make sure both of these are in line with the furnace manufacturer’s specifications. They also service and clean the blower, vacuuming the entire area where the blower is located.
Technicians lubricate moving parts to reduce friction. They inspect belts for signs of wear and cracks, replacing them as needed. They examine the flue for obstructions so that combusted gas can escape.
