Regular Furnace Maintenance And Tune-Ups
Maintenance is a crucial practice to keep heating systems producing warm air for years. Given the cost of new heating systems, most homeowners want them to last as long as possible, but these systems are not going to stay running on their own. Regular maintenance is a necessary part of owning a heating system if you want it to last. At All American HVAC, we are pleased to assess your system every year and determine whether your system needs repairs or tune-ups.
How Do You Know When Your Heating System Needs a Tune-Up?
Being able to identify when your heating system needs a tune-up means being able to watch out for the warning signs. Your heating system serves a specific purpose in the home, and when it doesn’t seem like those purposes are being fulfilled, it’s time for a tune-up.
Your first indication will likely be that your heating system is no longer meeting the same standards that it once did. This could mean that your heating system isn’t getting as warm, or that it can’t seem to maintain its standard of warmth for the usual periods of time. For the latter, you might notice that your system is stuck in an on-again-off-again cycle, where it repeatedly strains to turn on, powers off, then repeats that cycle.
Some of the indications that your heating system needs extra support can be more dramatic. Your heating system might stop working altogether, or you might note that there is a complete lack of airflow. When your system quits, it might not need to be replaced. Sometimes, a standard fix can help it to be restored.
There are certain signs that can be a little more subtle if you don’t know to look for them. A utility bill that keeps on increasing can be a significant red flag. Generally, this means that there is some kind of strain or drain on the system, and your heating unit might be to blame. If you notice that your bills are higher and the temperature in your home is dropping, give us a call!
It is crucial to understand that you can often tell if these systems need a tune-up based on your own habits. If you are continually running your heating system or you haven’t had a team out to give your system a tune-up in a while, you will want to call our team at All American HVAC. One call today can extend your system’s life by years!
