Tuning Up Your Heater in Bucks or Montgomery County
When it’s turning fall and the leaves are turning crisp, it’s time to consider maintenance on your heating system in preparation for the upcoming winter season. Chud Air Conditioning, Heating & Air Duct Cleaning is here to help.
Regular maintenance ensures you won’t be stuck with an unexpected repair on the first chilly night of the year and it also increases the longevity of your heating equipment. Furthermore, regular maintenance ensures that your system is working efficiently, which saves you money on utility bills. If you use a heat pump system, maintenance every six months or so is adequate to prepare for the warming and cooling seasons.
Before the cooling season, your home's air conditioner will be thoroughly inspected to make sure it is in excellent working order. Your technician will examine all internal parts, motors, and belts in your air conditioner, as well as its exterior and interior components. The amount of coolant in the air conditioner will be measured, and any lost coolant will be replaced as necessary. Your technician will also check all caps and valves in addition to the circuits, safety controls, drain line, and condensate pump. To avoid sparking or failure, electrical components will be examined for signs of wear or damage and replaced as necessary.
A heating maintenance check includes an inspection and testing of your furnace or boiler right before the heating system. Your HVAC technician will inspect your furnace filter during this visit, and replace it if necessary. He will look for signs of wear on the exterior and ventilation system of your heater and make any required repairs. The interior parts of your furnace will then be thoroughly cleaned and checked for wear or damage. This includes the blower, motors, pressure switches, and ignition assembly. Your furnace's electrical components and power consumption will be measured to look for any irrational power use. Additionally, the thermostat in your house will be examined, cleaned, and calibrated. A safety check will be performed on the pump, low water cutoff, and sight glass.
Lack of HVAC maintenance can lead to an ineffective system that drives up energy costs, a system that frequently breaks down, and a system that will probably need to be replaced before it has a chance to reach its expected lifespan.
Homeowners may neglect HVAC maintenance because they don't see any issues with the system or because they simply forget to do it. Establishing a schedule or signing up for services with your reliable HVAC company is crucial because their staff will notify you when maintenance is due. The system works best when routine maintenance is performed on it.
Your HVAC system needs to work harder because of the reduced airflow caused by a dirty filter. You spend more money because it consumes more energy. Additionally, it might not be able to maintain the ideal temperature in your house. This puts more strain on the system because it might need to run for longer periods of time.
