Heating system maintenance programs vary from company to company, but there are a number of basic tasks that should be performed with every maintenance appointment, no matter who services the system. At AAction Air, we have a 34-point maintenance checklist that we use for every appointment. Working with a company that has a heating system maintenance program in Savannah is important, because maintenance for your system helps improve energy efficiency and comfort, and can extend the life of your equipment. It’s recommended that homeowners schedule maintenance annually, so if it’s been more than 12 months since your last maintenance appointment, call AAction Air today.
What Happens During a Heating Maintenance Appointment?
Here is a general overview of what to expect from a heating maintenance appointment:
- Thorough inspection of entire system
- Cleaning of components
- Adjusting of components where needed
- Lubrication of all moving parts
- Safety checks and testing
- Small repairs (worn fan belts, frayed wiring)
- Performance testing
- Check of all electrical components
- Check and testing of burner assembly (combustion systems)
- Check of refrigerant levels (heat pumps)
Can I Perform Maintenance Myself?
It isn’t recommended that you conduct your own heating maintenance for a few reasons:
- Expertise and knowledge – unless you have expert knowledge about your heating system, you could potentially do more harm than good by performing your own maintenance.
- Correct tools – there are a number of specialized tools technicians have available to help them perform the necessary tasks; unless you have these types of tools, you may come up short on your ability to perform all of the tasks required.
- Safety – your heating system carries a large electrical load and if you have a combustion system, you are dealing with highly flammable fuels; unless you know exactly what you are doing, it’s best to leave maintenance to the experts.
Maintenance is the key to preventing future repair needs and ensuring that your heater runs smoothly; this is why it’s important to schedule maintenance with a professional.
