Winters in Pittsburgh can be harsh, and longer than any of us would care to endure. That means your heating system needs to be built to withstand the long haul, and therefore, needs routine maintenance and inspections.
Regardless of the type of heating system in your home, whether it’s a boiler, furnace, heat pump, or another system all together, an inspection of its components will serve your system well and help stave off costly repairs and replacements down the road.
Though your maintenance will depend on what type of system you have, the following are several items that you could expect to see on your inspection checklist:
- Thermostat operation
- Check filters: This should be done at least once a month.
- Blower and inducer motor readings
- Heat exchanger condition
- Igniter and capacitor readings
- Inspect control board and check wiring connections
- Inspect flues and pressure switches
- Clear drains
- Monitor equipment while in operation
Our inspection checklist will provide you with an overview of the health of your equipment and allow us to make recommendations on preventative repairs based on our evaluation.
Why Heating Maintenance is Important
Regular maintenance is necessary to prolong the life of your heating system. It allows potential problems to be caught and fixed prior to system failure. It also allows our technicians to make recommendations as to how to better care for your system as the winter months drag on. Give your family the peace of mind knowing your heating system has been inspected and is ready to keep you comfortable this winter.
