Let Fulton Plumbing Make your Life Easier with Furnace and Boiler Tune Ups
October is coming fast and around this time of the year, once you hit these late year months, something always changes… the weather! The fall and the wintertime are wonderful times of the year with all of the great family holidays and being able to cuddle up on the couch with a good book, but as you begin to pile the blankets on, eventually the heat will need to go on with it! As a full-service heating and cooling company, Fulton Plumbing likes to make sure that all of our clients and community members in the Metro Atlanta Area are prepared for the drop in temperature. One of the most important things you can do is get a heating system tune up! Whether you use a boiler, a furnace, a geothermal heating system, or any other kind of heat source, making sure that it is functioning properly and at maximum efficiency can make all of the difference between a good season and a bad season.
In general, heating systems are easy to maintain. No matter what kind you have, there are certain things that you can do to make sure it is in tip-top condition all year round. The recommended maintenance for any heating and cooling system is twice a year. Usually, you want to have your furnace or boiler checked out in the spring time when summer is heading your way and also as summer begins to come to an end. In doing this, you will make sure that any repairs or adjustments that are needed to be made will be taken care of before prime heating season or… before you shut down for the season.
Here are some other important reasons why you should get a heating tune up this season:
– Ensure that your unit is working at peak operating efficiency
– To save energy
– Keep your utility bills as low as possible
– Extend the length of your equipment life
– Avoid unexpected problems and expensive breakdowns
Many of you may think that having maintenance done on your heating units, like your forced air furnace, electric furnace, boiler system, heat pump or radiant floor heating system is just another way for plumbing companies to get you to pay for things you don’t need… but that could not be any less true! We recommend these things because they help you out in both the short term and the long term. If you could do all of this by yourself that would be wonderful! But unfortunately, you don’t have the training and experience needed to check on all parts and areas that need maintenance.
Here are some of the things that typically take place during heating system maintenance:
– Check thermostat calibration
– Check and replace standard air filters
– Check heat exchangers
– Check safety controls
– Check, adjust and clean blower components
– Check and adjust air flow and fan control for accurate temperature increase
– See if moving parts need to be lubricated
– Tighten all electrical connections
– Check belts for cracks and wear
– Check burner operation and clean if necessary
– Check the gas line for leaks from furnace shut off valves to burners
…And that is only part of the checklist. Doesn’t sound so simple anymore, huh?
