Benefits of Signing Up for a Heating Maintenance Plan

Posted on

With the New Jersey weather quickly getting colder, it’s time to get your furnace warmed up for winter. It’s been months since you last ran the furnace – how do you know it’s ready to keep you comfortable for another heating season? The best way to find out is to schedule heating maintenance.

Is this service really worthwhile? Consider the benefits of a heating maintenance plan and you’ll realize that it is!

Advantages of Heating Maintenance Plans

From energy savings to convenience to safety, you have plenty of reasons to sign up for a heating maintenance plan.

Lower Your Bills

Your heating equipment consumes a certain amount of fuel to keep your home warm every day all winter long. If you can improve system efficiency, you decrease fuel consumption and lower your bills in the process. With tasks such as testing for proper airflow, replacing the filter and cleaning the burners, you can expect greater efficiency and lower energy bills.

Help Your System Last Longer

You want to make it all winter without a single breakdown. Maintenance helps by catching problems early and correcting them before they cause a breakdown. Tightening electrical connections and replacing fraying belts are both good examples of this. Regular maintenance doesn’t just help your furnace make it through this season – it also adds years to the equipment’s lifespan.

Enjoy Peace of Mind

All combustion appliances, including furnaces, produce carbon monoxide as a byproduct. There’s a small possibility this poisonous gas could leak into your home, but maintenance ensures your safety. The technician checks for heat exchanger cracks, vent obstructions and backdrafting that could endanger your family. He also inspects and adjusts all safeties and checks for gas leaks. Once any problems are uncovered and corrected, you can go forward with peace of mind this heating season.

What’s Included in Air Professionals’ Heating Maintenance Services?

While you can schedule maintenance for your heating equipment any time of year, fall is the ideal season for a tune-up. This timing helps your heating system perform its best all winter because repairs and adjustments can be put to good use immediately. Plan to schedule maintenance once a year around the time you shut off your air conditioner for the season.

When you hire Air Professionals to conduct a heating tune-up, here’s what you can expect:

  • Replace standard air filter
  • Clean and inspect burners
  • Clean and adjust pilot burner/HSI
  • Test furnace burner starter
  • Check and adjust gas pressure
  • Check for gas leaks at furnace
  • Visually inspect heat exchanger where accessible
  • Inspect flue pipe and condition
  • Test for proper air flow
  • Check and tighten all electrical connection
  • Check motor voltage and amperage
  • Check and adjust all safeties
  • Test blower motor starter
  • Set humidifier for winter operation & test.
  • Test complete heating cycle
