Heating System Maintenance

It’s important that your home heating system works properly when you need it. In fact, if you’re like most Central New Jersey area residents, you probably just take for granted that it will. While you can certainly depend on a newer system for the first few years of its life, the older your system gets, the more likely you are to encounter problems and just because you have a new system does not mean you can not have any problems. Your heating system is a mechanical piece of equipment that requires maintenance just like a car. That’s when it’s time to call Environmental Air Systems.

If you really want to know that your home heating system will work when you need it, keeping up with a regular maintenance schedule is the best option. Even a brand new system will benefit from an annual maintenance check–up as well as keeping your warranties in good standing. This doesn’t have to take a lot of time or cost much money. But it will give you peace of mind that your system will keep working well for years to come.

Regular Heating Maintenance Ensures Safety 

One of the main issues that regular heating system maintenance can help to address is safety. Of course, your home heating system is a very safe piece of equipment to begin with but if something goes wrong, many heating systems can cause a Carbon Monoxide hazard.

This is a dangerous situation for you and your family and you should do everything you can to protect yourself. Thousands of people are poisoned each year by Carbon Monoxide and hundreds of people die each year from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Making sure all carbon monoxide detectors in your home are functioning properly is a good first step. You can also decrease the likelihood of this becoming a problem by having your heating system properly inspected and tested every year. Our expert HVAC technicians can educate you about carbon monoxide and offer preventative maintenance services to keep these types of issues from occurring in the first place.

Of course, a malfunctioning heating system can also be a serious fire risk. If you’re concerned about the price of having regular heating maintenance performed on your home heating system, just think about what it would cost you if your home caught fire. In this context, regular maintenance is well worth the minimal annual cost.

Heating Maintenance Promotes System Efficiency

Paying a bit for a regular maintenance service will actually save you quite a bit of money in the long run. That’s because a properly maintained heating system is an efficient one. And when your system is running at peak efficiency, you’ll find that your heating bills are quite low.

On the other hand, a heating system that hasn’t received any attention, will gradually decline in performance each year. This dip in performance may not be immediately evident, but over time, you will find that your heating bills are steadily climbing.

Improved Heating System Reliability 

An inefficient system also impacts the overall life–span of your equipment. When a system isn’t running efficiently, it has to work harder and more frequently to keep your home at the right temperature. This causes increased wear and tear on the entire system and can cause parts to wear out more quickly. This will not only lead to an increase in heating costs, but it will also make it necessary for you to pay for repairs more frequently as your system ages.

You want to know that your heat will work when you need it, and in order to ensure that it does, keeping up with a regular heating maintenance schedule really is your best option. This type of care will extend the life of your system and keep it running efficiently for much longer than it would otherwise.

Furnace Maintenance / Furnace Tune Up

Like every component of your home HVAC system, a Furnace needs regular inspection and maintenance every year. Call Environmental Air Systems to have a qualified technician inspect your furnace, perform our 25 Point Precision Tune Up and spot any potential issues before they turn into big problems. Correcting problems and making proactive repairs in the summer is much better than suffering a furnace breakdown in the dead of winter.

While a qualified professional should perform any major repairs, there are some simple measures you can take to help keep your furnace running smoothly and safe as well. First, be sure to keep your furnace room clean and free of debris. Dust and dirt can find their way into the system, which makes it less efficient, reduces the air quality in your home, and can potentially cause major mechanical difficulties in the future. Debris in the furnace room can also create a fire hazard. Keep a minimum clearance of 24″ around  the furnace and chimney pipe at all times and remove all flammable liquids and chemicals from the boiler room completely.

You should also keep all heating vents and baseboard heating elements clean for the same reasons. If dirt, dust or other debris build up in the vents, less air gets through, forcing your furnace to work harder in order to maintain the same comfortable temperature. A furnace that works too hard costs more money to run and is more prone to breaking down.
