Elements of Heater Maintenance
A heating and cooling system is a major investment. HVAC units that undergo regular maintenance last 40% longer than poorly maintained units. During a tune-up, a licensed HVAC contractor will inspect each element of your heating system to make sure it operates properly and efficiently. These steps include:
- Inspect burners and ignition of gas and oil units.
- Clean outside the main cabinet.
- Clean or replace the filter.
- Check ductwork for leaks.
- Inspect wiring and connections.
- Ensure unit cycles on and off properly.
- Inspect and clean drain pan and condensate tubing.
- Lubricate motors and other moving parts.
- Inspect belts.
- Inspect heat exchanger.
- Inspect vents and flue.
- Measure pressure.
- Check for carbon monoxide.
- Calibrate thermostat.
Technicians report that 75% of emergency winter repairs are due to lack of maintenance. In contrast, regular maintenance can reduce the risk of breakdowns by up to 95%. That may be why most major manufacturers require proof of maintenance to keep warranties valid.
