Feeling A Chill? Here’s How to Help Your Heater
If you’re feeling a chill this fall, it may be a good time to call your Brooklyn heating experts at Petri Plumbing & Heating. If you haven’t had your fall heating system tune-up, now is the time to get it done before the weather turns really cold. Nobody needs the inconvenience of a balky heating system during the winter, especially with the holidays fast approaching.
Our Heating Maintenance Service
We’ll check your boiler to make sure that everything is working perfectly. We’ll clean the burners and the heat exchanger, check the safety controls, and make sure that warm water is flowing through all of your radiators.
If you have a furnace, we conduct the same burner cleaning and safety checks and inspect the condition of your ductwork. You can’t get heat to the rooms that need it if your ducts are clogged. We can check out your ducts and recommend duct cleaning if there’s a buildup of dust and debris.
No matter how you heat your home, we’ll check the venting and chimney system to assure that it’s sending all of the products of combustion safely outdoors.
We’ll make sure that your thermostat is working properly, plus we can show you your options for a new thermostat if it’s time for a change. We can show you how the latest programmable and smart thermostats can save you money while making you more comfortable.
Other Heating Maintenance Tips
If you have a furnace, have you changed the filter? The filter should be changed twice a year before the heating season and in the spring. If you have a humidifier, the humidifier pad should also be changed twice during the winter. We can change it for you, as well as checking the humidifier’s controls to make sure that it’s working properly.
Radiators and registers need to be unobstructed to provide heat to a room. Make sure that drapes don’t cover them, and also make sure not to block or cover them with furniture as you’re moving it around to make room for holiday decorations.
