Fall is in the air, and cold weather is on its way. That means it’s time to get the leaf rake out of storage, oil up the snow blower and yes, get a tune-up for your HVAC system. If system maintenance is not on your autumn to-do list, it should be. We don’t need to tell our customers about how important your heating system is during frigid New England winters!
Don’t take the chance that your equipment will let you down this season. Fall is the perfect time to have your heating equipment checked by a qualified HVAC professional. Regular maintenance keeps system components operating at peak efficiency, helps to prevent breakdowns and usually gives you more years of dependable service. Not only that, but, tune-ups help you save up to 30% off of your energy bill each year.
Our Service Partner Plans offer many options for our customers who want to stay on top of their HVAC system maintenance. Scheduling your fall maintenance in advance gives you automatic priority service, discounts and other incentives. During a fall tune-up, you can expect to receive the following points of inspection:
- Check and adjust pilot and safety controls
- Lubricate motors and bearings
- Check heat exchanger for cracks (visual)
- Change filters
- Check pressure switches
- Check circulator pump
- Check temperature rise for proper operation of the heating system
- Check gas valve
- Check electrical connections
- Check belt and adjust tension
- Check thermostat controls
- Check condensate pump
- Check vent pipe
- Vacuum clean burners and compartments as applicable
As you can see, there are many points to cover, but the time and cost involved is well worth it. Rodenhiser Service Partner Plans usually more than pay for themselves in fewer breakdowns and repairs, increased energy savings, and discounts on services. We believe that a fall tune-up for your system is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that your home is comfortable this winter, and for many years thereafter.
