Fall in the Pine Bluff, Arkansas, area brings much-needed relief from the scorching hot summer temperatures. As the weeks go by, it will soon be time to start using your heating system. However, before turning on your furnace, remember that it has been out of use for several months. Preventive furnace maintenance ensures your system is in good condition and safe for use. It also improves energy efficiency and keeps the unit in tip-top shape.
Protect Your System
Seasonal tuneups provide system protection. Maintenance checkups identify small problems before they get worse, so you avoid costly repair bills. Regular maintenance can prolong the unit’s service life. During maintenance service, our service techs inspect, calibrate, and clean each component of your HVAC system. Other tasks include:
- Checking electrical connections and wiring
- Lubricating all moving parts
- Calibrating the thermostat
- Cleaning the condensate pan and tubing
- Examining the burners and ignition
- Checking the gas pressure and connections
- Examining the heat exchanger
- Cleaning the coils and blower
- Cleaning or changing the air filter
Maintenance service also includes checking for potential carbon monoxide leaks. Our service tech will bring repair needs to your attention.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
During the maintenance visit, our service techs will inspect your air filter and replace it if necessary. A clogged or dirty filter can’t trap particles that pass through the system. These contaminants will end up in the air you breathe and affect your household’s health. Similarly, pollutants that settle in the ductwork and on other HVAC components can cause allergies and other health problems. We will thoroughly inspect and clean your system.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Simple measures can noticeably improve energy efficiency. Cleaning or replacing the air filter will also improve performance and heating efficiency. Dirty air filters impede the flow of air through the system. Dust and particulates that bypass a dirty filter end up on components and over time affect the system’s performance. With our maintenance service, you avoid these problems.
