When fall weather comes to Greenville, South Carolina, it is time to tune up your heating system. Professionals recommend scheduling a fall tune-up each year before the first use of a heating system. Preventive maintenance ensures your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system works properly and is safe to use. Seasonal maintenance helps improve energy efficiency, reduces the need for repairs, and can extend equipment service life.
Heating System Tune-Ups Explained
During heating system tune-ups, our licensed technicians inspect each component, including:
- Clean or change the air filter.
- Oil motors, fans, and other moving parts.
- Inspect condensate system.
- Check fans and blowers for dirt or obstructions.
- Check electrical components, including wiring, connections, and amperage.
- Inspect and calibrate thermostat.
- Ensure the system cycles on, runs, and shuts down properly.
The HVAC maintenance experts at Preferred Choice Heating and Air inspect piping, the heat exchanger, and burners on gas and oil furnaces. Damaged piping, dirty burners, or a cracked heat exchanger can release carbon monoxide, a toxic gas, into your home. We test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make sure they operate properly.
Benefits of Seasonal Maintenance
The last thing you need is for your heater to stop working on the coldest day of the year. When extreme weather hits, HVAC equipment must work harder to provide conditioned air. Lack of maintenance is the primary cause of breakdowns. In contrast, keeping filters clean and ensuring that components are in good working order help your system respond to demand.
Maintenance improves energy efficiency. Combining annual tune-ups with other home energy-saving strategies can save up to 30% on utility bills. You save money and stay comfortable year-round.
