Have Your Heating System Checked Before Fall

Serving Brooklyn Since 1906

Getting your boiler or furnace checked while the heating season is still months away is the smart thing to do. Annual tune-ups are quick, convenient, extend the life of the equipment and typically mean less heating repair calls!

Thorough Heating System Inspections

During the tune-up, the Brooklyn heating contractors at Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning will inspect your combustion system, whether that’s a pilot light or an ignition system, as well as check the gas pressure regulator and the incoming gas pressure. We’ll lubricate the fan motor and other moving parts. We’ll clean the inside of your furnace and look for cracks and leaks. 

Cold couple in need of home heating repair

A cracked heat exchanger creates a potentially deadly carbon monoxide danger. We’ll check and test your venting system to make sure that products of combustion are going safely out of the chimney or sidewall vent, as the case may be. 

A boiler failure in winter would be a nightmare. So why wait to have it inspected? By having your boiler inspected before issues arise, you can also avoid costly boiler repairs down the road. Our experts will check your hydronic heating system for water leaks and make sure that shutoff valves work. We’ll inspect the heat exchanger and check the functioning of all controls such as the pressure release valve, safety valves, low-water cutoff and other safety devices. We’ll inspect the fuel system and look for any signs of corrosion, erosion or areas that show signs of overheating.

DIY Heating Maintenance Hints

There are also some steps that homeowners can take to keep the system healthy and prevent you from having to call for furnace repair in the dead of winter. Make sure to change your furnace filter twice a year. Hold the filter up to the light and if you can’t see through it, it needs to be changed. Make sure your thermostat is set properly. If you have a programmable thermostat, make sure the temperatures are set for heating and the on/off times are correct. Setting cooler temperatures at night saves money and energy.
