The #1 Way to Prevent Heater Trouble


checklist-with-red-market

The January and February months are often interesting here in the Lake County area. We can go from a summertime-feeling day straight to a downright chilly one in a matter of hours. So we always need to be prepared, right? Being prepared means having a great heating system in place so that when winter does feel like… well… winter, we can stay warm and keep our families healthy. Can you rely on your heater this winter?

Not without maintenance, you can’t! Maintenance is typically a service we recommend in the fall before you need the system the most. But consistency is far more important than timing, in this case. We really encourage our customers to invest in furnace maintenance every year, and heat pump system maintenance twice a year since it’s also used for cooling.

Maintenance tune-ups are truly the #1 way to prevent heater trouble. Don’t believe us? Read on as we provide some more details.

Maintenance Keeps Heaters Safe

This point is especially pertinent if you have a gas-powered furnace. Now, that’s not to say that any type of heating system is inherently dangerous. But if your system isn’t properly cared for, it can certainly become dangerous.

The thing is, during maintenance, our technicians check for a lot. In fact we have a whole inspection checklist that we go through. It includes checking things like the heat exchangers to ensure they’re functional and not leaking combustion gasses into your living space, checking the gas line, and even checking the exterior of the furnace for corrosion (if it’s occurring on the outside it’s almost certainly occurring on the inside, too).

Maintenance Prevents the Majority of Furnace Issues

What if you could prevent all your furnace repairs? Okay, maybe that’s not possible—after all, natural wear and tear is going to require some repairs over the course of your heater’s lifespan. But what if you could prevent up to 85% of the repair needs a heater may ever need in its lifespan? This actually is possible, with annual maintenance!

During your tune-up session, our technicians look for small repair needs. It may be something like a blower motor that needs lubrication. Or it could be a component that’s become loose and is knocking into the side of the furnace. These are minor problems on their own—but if neglected for too long they can have a domino effect on other parts of the system, and lead to a much bigger emergency repair need, or even a full heating system breakdown.

Extend Your Heater’s Lifespan

The average furnace, when well cared for, can last about 10-15 years. Some heat pumps and boiler systems can last even longer than that. But when you skip maintenance a few times over the years, that number becomes less reliable. If you never get maintenance done, and only call the pros when you need urgent repairs done, you can probably expect that lifespan to get cut in half.
