How HVAC preventative maintenance can change your future.
Have you considered preventative maintenance for your heating and cooling system? If you haven’t, you should. Don’t put that idea on the back burner. There are big problems you can prevent in the future just by having your heating system maintained regularly. Keep reading to learn more.
What Is Preventative Maintenance?
Your heating system is a machine that needs TLC, much like your car needs regular tune-ups. In order to keep all of the moving parts moving correctly, they need to be cleaned and tested and adjusted and lubricated. Here’s a general list of the basics covered during heating maintenance:
- Check the air filter
- Test the furnace and burner parts
- Inspect the ventilation system
- Inspect and adjust the ignition assembly, blower, motors and pressure switches
- Test and calibrate the thermostat
- Lubricate moving parts
- Check the electrical components
- Test the fan and fan blades
- Clean the exterior of the heating unit
- Check for carbon monoxide leaks
How Does This Eliminate Future Heating Problems?
Just like a tune-up for your car can catch small issues before they become big ones, preventative maintenance for your heating system does the same thing. Small issues that you might not notice from day to day in the temperature or comfort level of your home could get worse over time and turn into big and costly issues.
Not only that, but keeping your system running smoothly, the components adjusted properly, and the moving parts lubricated to prevent friction and wear and tear will keep your system running better, longer.
Your HVAC system doesn’t run in a vacuum without the potential for problems. Regular attention is critical. For everything you need to know about preventative maintenance, contact the pros at H.H. Hovey today.
