Henderson Plumbing & Heating Inc., are available for maintenance, repairs and even replacement, so if it’s been a while since we’ve seen your heating system, call us today.
Why Is Maintenance Important?
Your heater works really hard all winter to provide your home with heat, and then it sits for several months and accumulates dirt and dust. Then, it turns back on again and has to work with last year’s wear and tear and this year’s dirt and dust: it’s not a good combination for your or your heater. During a maintenance appointment, one of the main tasks is to thoroughly inspect your system for wear and tear. If any is found, like frayed wiring or a worn fan belt, these things are repaired. Dust and dirt can make operation of components difficult, so another important task performed during a maintenance appointment is cleaning. Performance and safety tests are run to ensure the system is operating at the efficiency level it should be and that it does so safely. Other benefits include:
- Better energy efficiency – a system that is clean, adjusted and properly lubricated is one that runs well and can achieve the energy efficiency it’s supposed to.
- Better comfort – there’s no worry that your heater can’t reach your set temperature because it has gotten a full tune-up and is ready to go.
- Lubrication – depending on your heating system there may be multiple moving parts that need lubrication in order to work correctly; during maintenance, all parts that need lubrication are serviced.
- Prevents repair – the thorough inspection your system receives allows the technician to detect any developing or existing problems, which helps get you ahead of repair problems.
Fall is a great time to schedule repair, but maintenance is an ongoing thing.
