Heating Question: What Actually Happens During Heating Maintenance?

If you ask any professional heating technician what the best way to keep your home heating system operating efficiently and effectively is, he or she will most likely say scheduling regular maintenance service. This is absolutely correct. However, many homeowners have very little understanding of what actually goes on during this important procedure. While you should never attempt to tune up or service your heater on your own, we believe that it is important for you to know as much as possible about the heating system in your Rincon, GA home. Here are some examples of what to expect during professional maintenance service from AAction Air.

One of the biggest advantages that comes with professional heating maintenance is knowing that your heater is working safely. The fuel connections, gas pressure, electrical elements, burner combustion and other safety factors will be checked and tuned up if needed. Heating your home effectively is a great luxury, but for true comfort you must be able to do so confidently.

All moving parts of your heater will be lubricated during maintenance service. This reduces friction between these components, making it easier for your heater to operate. The less energy that your heater expends during operation, the more money you can save on heating costs.

It is important also that your control system is inspected. The thermostat that you use to regulate temperatures in your home must be properly set and calibrated. If your thermostat cannot get an accurate temperature reading it will cause your heater to work inefficiently and ineffectively. It will not come on at the right times or will run too long, too frequently. All of this wastes energy.

Your air filters should also be cleaned or replaced during maintenance service. This should be done more frequently than just during your annual inspection, though. Changing your air filters is one instance where it is okay for you to take the initiative and perform the task yourself. Just be sure that you understand how to remove them and secure the replacements properly.
