With fall underway in northeast Ohio, now is a good time to think about the status of your home’s heating system. Cold winter months are right around the corner and an annual service check should be a priority for area homeowners.
When you rely on a qualified technician for your system’s annual tune-up, you can be sure all the important areas are checked. The HVAC professional will:
- Check the air flow.
- Inspect the thermostat for proper operation.
- Inspect the filter and change or clean.
- Check all electrical components and controls.
- Oil the motors.
- Inspect the heat exchanger for possible cracks.
- Check air fuel mixture.
- Troubleshoot any problems.
Putting off an annual service check-up can lead to a shorter lifespan for your furnace and higher heating bills, as well as dangerous issues like carbon monoxide poisoning. Whether your furnace is gas, electric, oil or steam, regular preventative maintenance will save you money in the long run. And, of course, no one can put a price on your loved ones safety.
In between scheduled service checks, you can handle a few tasks on your own. Cleaning floor vents and changing filters regularly will not only help clean the air that flows into your room, but will also allow the air to flow easier and more efficiently.
