Having an effective heating system can make a world of difference during the winter. However, annual heating system maintenance is necessary to keep your heater in tip-top shape. Here is what you can expect with heating system maintenance in Charlottesville, VA.
Inspect Electrical Connections During Heating System Maintenance
When our technicians come out to your home, one of the first things they will check is the electrical connections on your heating system. They will measure the current and the voltage on the motors to ensure proper levels, and they will tighten up all connections. Loose electrical connections can be dangerous for your safety and interfere with your system working properly.
Check the Thermostat Settings
Our technicians will also make sure that your thermostat is functioning correctly and showing the right temperature. If not, they may need to recalibrate it. They will also do simple checks like making sure the batteries are fresh.
Lubricate Moving Parts
To prevent excess wear and tear on your heating unit, our maintenance plan involves lubricating all moving parts. An annual tune-up job will extend the life of your heating unit, it will mean fewer breakdowns, and it will decrease the amount of your utility bills. Lubricating moving parts will also reduce friction when different parts rub up against each other.
Check All Gas Connections
One of the most important inspections that technicians perform is checking for gas leaks on furnaces. Having a carbon monoxide leak, for example, can be deadly, and our trained technicians will check and test for this.
A gas leak can also compromise the health of you and your family. Besides being dangerous, a heating system that has a gas leak is also less effective.
