Heating System Maintenance
Benefits of Routine Gas Furnace Maintenance
1. INCREASED ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Your home’s HVAC system can account for as much as 60% of your home’s energy usage – so it’s important to keep it running at peak performance. Our heating maintenance services ensure that your system is clean and free of issues that can make your system work harder than it has to.
2. IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Over time, dirt, dust and bacteria can build up inside your HVAC system and get circulated throughout the air in your home. Not only does this pose a concern when it comes to your indoor air quality but also your family’s health. These contaminants can act as a trigger for people that suffer from severe allergies or asthma. With routine maintenance we ensure that your system is clean and air you breathe is as healthy as possible.
3. PREVENT UNTIMELY BREAKDOWNS
Unexpected breakdowns, no matter when they occur, are an inconvenience. Routine gas furnace maintenance puts you in a position to catch potential problems before they result in an untimely failure or costly repair.
4. MINIMIZE REPAIR COSTS
It’s a fact, eventually, every HVAC system will need some sort of repair. But like most things, if your heating system is well cared for – it will experience fewer problems and last longer. Minimize your exposure to premature failures with regular heating and air conditioning maintenance.
5. EXTENDED LIFESPAN
Routine maintenance reduces the effects of gradual wear and tear, and maximizes the overall lifespan of your heating system.
4 Heating Maintenance Tips
REPLACE YOUR FILTER
It’s a good rule of thumb to replace your furnace filter every 3 months. Dirty filters obstruct air from easily passing through them, causing your heating system to work harder and utilize more energy.
CHECK VENTS & REGISTERS
It’s important to keep your vents and registers free of dust, dirt and other obstructions such as furniture or curtains. It is recommended that you wipe them clean twice annually to maximize circulation and efficiency.
SET YOUR THERMOSTAT
To achieve optimal comfort and energy savings, it is recommended to set your thermostat between 68 and 70 degrees. Take advantage of home and away scheduling for maximum savings.
SCHEDULE SEASONAL MAINTENANCE
To keep your system running at maximum efficiency, make time for your spring and fall tune-ups. Doing so can save you up to 20% on your energy bills annually as well as maximize your systems efficiency, performance and lifespan.
