Neighbors, we’ve made it through another Brooklyn winter… maybe. It’s just the beginning of March, so winter weather may have one or two more punches to throw.
But, while you might be opening windows and gearing up for spring, remember that your heating system has been working hard to keep you warm this winter, and it might have picked up a little wear and tear along the way. Scheduling a tune-up with Petri Plumbing & Heating, your local Brooklyn HVAC experts, can address those problems now and make sure your heater is working when you need it.
During the tune-up, we’ll check your boiler or furnace to make sure the mechanical parts are in good working order, lubricate them, and replace any frayed or cracked belts. We’ll change your filters and clean dust and debris from the units. All of these measures keep your system operating at top efficiency for savings on your utility bill.
Petri Plumbing & Heating’s service experts will also check the heating system for leaks and proper ventilation to prevent carbon monoxide from building to dangerous levels in your home. We highly recommend a high-quality carbon monoxide detector for every Brooklyn home, and our service experts can recommend the right model for you. If it’s time to replace your boiler or furnace, we will let you know and recommend a fuel-efficient system that will work best for your home.
If you’re running a natural gas system regular tune-ups and inspections are important for safety. We’ll check the gas lines and connections to make sure there are no cracks or leaks and replace any lines that look old or worn out. As always, if you smell the telltale rotten eggs odor of natural gas, leave your home immediately and call 911. Then, call Petri for repairs.
Now is a great time to show your heating system some love after a long winter. For more information or to schedule a tune-up, contact us online or call (718) 748-1254.
