Fall = A Great Time to Schedule Heating Maintenance

We know you don’t want to think about the fall, but the equinox is already here. Fall brings lots of nice things, though, like harvest time, apple baked goods, and beautiful fall foliage. It’s also the time when we turn on the heat, at least in the mornings, to get rid of the growing chill. Make sure your heater is in the best shape it can be in for this fall and winter by scheduling maintenance for your heating system now.

It’s Not Just a Quick Check

Maintenance can be something of a generic word, but when it comes to your Carney Plumbing Heating & Cooling expert performing maintenance, it is not a simple, generic appointment. We are there to conduct a full tune-up on your system that consists of a number of tasks, including:

  • Thorough, in-depth inspection of your heating system
  • Cleaning of all components
  • Air filter changed
  • All moving parts lubricated
  • Wiring and electronic connections checked
  • Switches and controls checked
  • Burner and flue checked and cleaned (if applicable)
  • Refrigerant level checked (for heat pumps)
  • System testing
  • Performance testing

What All This Achieves

Doing this kind of work on your heating system has multiple benefits. For starters, your system will run as efficiently as possible because it won’t be dragged down by last season’s wear and tear. Second, it will be in good working order for the season. Third, maintenance helps prevent repairs by getting ahead of potential problems. Fourth, keeping your system in good working order helps extend the life of your system.

It’s estimated that for every year you don’t have your heating system professionally maintained, you lose 5% of the system’s efficiency. This means your overall heating costs can go up 5%. Put yourself and your heating system in Ambler, PA in a better position by scheduling heating maintenance today!
