The days are getting shorter, and there’s a nip in the air as fall descends upon the Brooklyn area.
You may be thankful for the break in the weather as the hottest part of the summer is in the rearview mirror. But, don’t forget that cold weather will soon be here.
While you may be looking forward to the late autumn and winter holidays, don’t forget about one of the most important aspects of staying warm when the months are colder: your heating system.
Here are four reasons why you shouldn’t neglect to schedule a heating maintenance service call:
During a maintenance service call, your technician will inspect your system to make sure it’s working properly by inspecting the wiring, cleaning and lubricating unit components, checking any fuel lines, testing pilot lights and calibrating the unit.
The tech will also identify any potential mechanical issues that you might encounter during peak usage and recommend any repairs you may need.
A maintenance call can also help you and your technician determine if your unit is safe to use. Not only can dirty systems circulate dirty air throughout your home, which can make you and your family ill, regular maintenance can identify dangerous gas leaks.
A maintenance technician can also make sure your system is free from contaminants like mold and mildew.
Because a service technician cleans and repairs the system during routine maintenance, he or she also ensures that the system is running at its most efficient.
When the parts of a heating system are properly inspected and cleaned, the system doesn’t have to run as hard to overcome the dust and debris that can clog it up. A dirty burner or a clogged air filter can also make the system less safe to run.
Even if your system runs well, regular maintenance can also ensure your system’s warranty stays valid. Many warranties require that you schedule an annual tune-up with a licensed HVAC service to remain active.
