Heating Question: Why is Heating Maintenance Important?

Despite the insistence of countless professionals in the industry, many people still question the importance of home heating system maintenance. AAction Air wants to stress the fact that there is in fact no better way to ensure that your Savannah home’s heating system provides you with reliable, efficient home heating performance than with regular professional maintenance. We’ve gathered some information we’d like to share with you to help explain why this is.

Pre-Season Maintenance and Tune-ups

In Georgia you may use your air conditioner more frequently than your heating system, but that does not mean that your heating system is any less important or that it does not require annual maintenance. Actually, the very fact that your home heating system may go unused for stretches of time makes it all the more pertinent that it receives professional maintenance before being put into regular use.

Your heating system does not need to run in order to collect dirt and debris in its mechanical parts. You vacuum your floors and change filters in your air conditioner, so why would you assume that your heating system is exempt from the pollutants in your home. Dirt buildup is a leading cause of heating system break down, and one that is easily avoided with professional maintenance. Having your system inspected before regular use each year, even if it is only going to be used occasionally, ensures that all components of the system are clean and in good operating condition. Forcing any machine to operate in poor condition only increases the likelihood of further problems and more frequent – and costly – repairs.

Another reason that maintenance is so important is it allows any inefficiency to be rectified before they can cost you money during the operation of your heating system. Fuel sources, such as the natural gas or electricity, will be inspected for proper connection, an efficiency and safety concern. Ductwork will receive attention to make sure that your energy, as well as the money you paid for it, does not simply get lost along the way to its destination. A number of other maintenance checkpoints will also be addressed, and that brings us to our next point.

Maintenance Involves More Than You May Expect

The number of areas in which your home heating system may go awry might surprise you. There are plenty of opportunities for energy loss and inefficiency, as well as for damages to sneak up. Professional maintenance addresses these potential problem spots, with tasks including:

  • Thermostat inspection and calibration
  • Electrical connection inspection for proper voltage and current
  • Lubrication of moving parts
  • Control system checks
  • Gas and oil supply line inspections
  • Gas pressure readings
  • Burner combustion and heat exchanger evaluations

These are undertakings that only a professional maintenance provider can complete with confidence. Call AAction Air today if you still have any questions about the relevance and pertinence of home heating system maintenance.
