Cooler weather is on the way, so it’s important to make sure your heater is ready to keep your home warm. We recommend a fall heater tune-up before the frigid winter air arrives in West Fargo, ND. When planning your fall home maintenance tasks, consider these three reasons to make an appointment for a heating system tune-up.
1. Boost Heating System Efficiency
During a fall heater maintenance visit, our technicians will clean the entire heating system. We’ll apply lubricant to all the moving parts, which reduces friction and wear and tear. Our technicians will also change or clean the filter. Replacing a dirty filter with a clean one gives your heating system a 15% boost in energy efficiency.
2. Prevent Malfunctions
Preventive maintenance may eliminate up to 95% of possible malfunctions in your heating system. Our technicians inspect every component from the wiring and connections to the fuel supply and fan. If any parts have signs of damage or excessive wear and tear, we’ll let you know. You’ll have the opportunity to replace worn parts before they fail. This could prevent an unexpected breakdown of your furnace later in the winter.
3. Discover Safety Issues
Autumn heater maintenance allows our technicians to discover any problems that put your health and safety at risk. For example, a leak or clog in a furnace’s flue puts you at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Our technicians will perform a safety check on key parts of the system. We’ll also check the structural integrity of the flue and the effectiveness of the fan. In addition, we’ll test your carbon monoxide and smoke alarms to ensure that they’re working. Our technicians can also show you how to test these safety devices and change their batteries between maintenance visits.
