If you’ve ever needed to call a technician for heating repairs, the experience may not have been a pleasant one. Sure, you got your heater fixed, but going without heating service for a while, even here in sunny Los Angeles, is never ideal. And a heating breakdown almost never occurs at a time when it’s actually convenient to call a technician to your home.
Heating maintenance is one of the most vital services you can schedule to maintain and extend the life of your unit. Yet, so many people wait until there is an issue with their heaters before calling for repairs. With heating maintenance, a technician will manually inspect the entire system, from the smallest of screws to the gas line to the combustion chamber and air handler. If a problem is detected, the technician can inform you well before a sudden breakdown occurs.
Besides the peace of mind you get from knowing about a repair need early on, heating maintenance can also offer the following benefits:
- Reduced Repairs: Not only will you hear about repair needs before they disable your system; you can also actually reduce the amount of repairs you may have had to make over the years. With maintenance, a technician adjusts components that could have caused trouble. A bent flame sensor or thermocouple, damaged heating coil, or loose bolt could all affect your system later on, but maintenance can keep this from occurring.
- Lower Bills: The technician will also clean some of the parts that may be causing your system to run less efficiently than it should. Dirty coils, flame sensors, and vents can mean your heater has to work harder and run for longer periods of time to get your home up to an ideal temperature. In some cases, dirty parts can even be a safety hazard.
- A Longer Lifespan: Finally, heating maintenance can help to extend the lifespan of your furnace, heat pump, or ductless unit by allowing your system to run in top shape without any interference or unnecessary wear and tear.
