How Do I Know If My Heating System Is Working Properly?


What heat inspections can tell you that you otherwise wouldn’t know.

Heat inspections can reveal more than you might imagine. Even if you think your heating system is humming along just fine, there could be underlying issues you aren’t aware of. How can you tell? This is where heat inspections come into play.

What’s the Goal of a Heat Inspection?

During a heat inspection, a licensed HVAC technician will examine various parts and components that comprise your heating system. The goal is to determine if there is anything that is wrong or malfunctioning within the heating unit.

What Happens During a Heat Inspection?

A heat inspection should be done annually, before heating season, to make sure the system is primed and ready to get to work. Here’s a general list of what a tech will check:

  • Inspect and test the thermostat
  • Examine the heat exchanger
  • Inspect the air filters
  • Check the burner assembly
  • Inspect the flame sensor and test operation
  • Check the fan switch
  • Inspect the blower wheels
  • Inspect gas lines
  • Check pilot light
  • Inspect electrical and controls

What Are the Benefits of a Heat Inspection?

Just because your heating system seems to be working, your house is warm, and there aren’t any weird noises or apparent temperature issues doesn’t mean there aren’t problems happening behind the scenes. Annual heat inspections can identify small issues that you aren’t aware of that could turn into big and costly problems down the road.

If you aren’t sure if your heating system is doing its job to the best of its abilities, it’s time to call in a pro to take a look. To schedule a heat inspection before winter is in full swing, contact the team at H.H. Hovey today.
