Heater Maintenance

Tips for Home Heater Maintenance

It’s that time of year again: Time to schedule heating repair and service from your local Aire Serv® team! Is it really that important, though? Couldn’t you get away with not scheduling it this year? If you want to keep your comfort equipment in top working order this season and for years to come, it’s important to make annual maintenance a priority.

What Heating System Maintenance Entails

You can’t neglect your heating system and expect it to stay in good condition. To prevent your furnace from falling into disrepair, hire a professional to perform the following tasks:

  • Change the filter
  • Check airflow and fan controls
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Check electrical connections
  • Check burners
  • Ensure proper thermostat calibration
  • Inspect safety controls
  • Check the gas line
  • Tighten or replace belts
  • Conduct an amp-draw test
  • Inspect the condensate drain on a condensing furnace
  • Check the heat exchanger for rust, cracks or corrosion

Schedule Annual Heating Repair & Service

The only task above you can accomplish without training is changing the filter. At Aire Serv, we offer what we call a Total Comfort Tune-Up. When you schedule this appointment, we’ll provide you with a complete inspection, as well as a professional, thorough cleaning. We’ll adjust applicable controls and conduct a top-to-bottom safety check to ensure that your furnace functions safely and reliably all season long.

Do You Know What Type of Heating System You Have?

An important step in properly caring for your heating equipment is to learn what type of heater you have. Then, you can increase your knowledge of your equipment and perform maintenance specific to your equipment between formal visits from a heating system expert. Rest assured that Aire Serv repairs and services all brands and types of heating systems.

  • Age – If your furnace is well over a decade old, it could be time to replace it.

  • Repair frequency – Is this the second or third repair this year? Is a looming repair close to half the cost of a new system? Stop throwing away money and put your funds toward a high-efficiency replacement.

  • Energy bills – Rising energy costs could be one reason your heating bills are higher than they were a few years ago, but it’s also likely due to your aging furnace losing its ability to perform efficiently. A steady increase in energy bills is a sign that your furnace is past its prime.

  • Comfort – Higher energy bills combined with diminished indoor comfort is incredibly frustrating. Uneven temperatures, trouble keeping up with demand, and cold air exiting supply registers are signs of a pending furnace replacement.
