Comprehensive Heating System Check-Up

Whether your system hasn’t been examined for some time, or if you’ve had frequent work on your heater and ventilation system, we want to make sure you’re getting the best possible efficiency and air quality out of your system. If you schedule a service visit for your furnace, boiler, or heat pump, you can expect that our technicians will leave your system and work area better than they found it.

Regular heating service should include all of the following:

  • Check for signs of poor combustion, if applicable

  • Adjust burners or other heat mechanism

  • Inspect and clean blower, flame sensor, and other critical parts

  • Examine air ducts for leaks

  • Check for any blockages

  • Examine and repair electrical connections

  • Replace filter

  • Calibrate thermostat

A system check like this allows our Alton heating service technicians to correct small problems before they result in major issues. If we find any issues that need repair, we will make sure you understand the situation and counsel you on your options to proceed.

Why Regular Heating Maintenance is Essential

System tune-ups are a form of preventative maintenance, which is an important part of responsible homeownership. A tune-up can save you more than just time and money. It can also help you protect the health of your household. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Safety: Faulty heating systems are a known source of harmful gases like carbon monoxide. Typically, this gas leak is the result of faulty heating equipment malfunctions. So, tuning up your furnace can be a matter of life and death. A timely furnace tune-up can discover any wear and tear to your unit, like cracks and defects. While these may seem minor, small cracks allow toxic gases like carbon monoxide to leak into the air, which can lead to severe illness or death.
  • Budget & Energy Savings: A well-maintained furnace can ensure your heating system is working properly and free from the type of significant wear and tear known to impact efficiency. When your system is working overtime to heat your home, it uses more money and costs more to operate each month. Unmaintained furnaces cost homeowners more to operate and contribute to the rapid aging of your system. Emergency breakdowns are a costly result of neglecting your heating system. While all repairs can’t be avoided, many system problems can be avoided through regular inspection from a licensed and trained professional.
  • Air Quality: Air Filters serve an important role in your heating system. When your filters are clogged and dirty, your heater has to work overtime to keep your home warm. Your filters should be changed or cleaned regularly, and when they aren’t, it can cause the air quality in your home to deteriorate in addition to preventing warm air from reaching the various rooms in your home.
  • Electrical Connections & Wiring: Preventative maintenance and tune-ups to your furnace will include a system inspection, which can ensure your heater is free from frayed, worn, or exposed wiring. A tune-up will also check all the appropriate connectors. Faulty wiring poses a massive safety risk. Furthermore, old and worn wiring is a major cause of appliance fires, so it’s vital that the electrical components and connections of your heating system are maintained.
