What Is A Heating Tune Up?

Deciding to turn on your heating unit typically means your home is becoming too cool for comfort. However, you may turn on your unit and discover little to no air is coming from your vents. Heating tune-ups can prevent uncomfortable situations similar to lack of airflow. Your HVAC contractor will provide a thorough inspection of your whole heating system and catch problems before they become bigger ones.

Benefits Of Heating Tune Ups

Your heating unit should be looked at by a professional once a year, ideally in the fall season. Similar to doctor check ups and vehicle oil changes, heating tune ups ensure your system is working as efficiently and effectively as possible. Below we listed 5 benefits of having regular heating maintenance in South Boston.

  • Enhanced Air Quality
  • Extended Lifespan
  • Fewer Repairs
  • Increased Comfort
  • Lowered Utility Bills

Enhanced Air Quality

Allergens and debris can collect inside your heating system and duct work and spread around your home. Certain pollutants can contribute to seasonal allergies, asthma, and other health symptoms. Heating tune ups allow your Rogers technician to clean and remove trapped pollutants and debris and enhance air quality in your South Boston home. Additionally, your technician will ensure all air filters are clean and prepared to catch allergens.

Extended Lifespan

Without a professional eye, some heating issues can go unnoticed until they result in a breakdown. If your heating unit is operating with a malfunction or obstruction, it is causing your unit to work harder and possibly wearing out other components. Regular heating maintenance can extend unit lifespan and heat your home for years to come.

Fewer Repairs

A heating unit operating with underlying issues can result in frequent repairs throughout the winter season. Heating tune ups can prevent problems from arising with the services performed. For example, a clogged air filter can present many problems for your heating system. Our expert technicians will clear dust and other pollutants from each filter to ensure airflow is maximized. Heating repairs caused by a clogged filter can include burnt out motors and damaged fan blades.

Increased Comfort

The winter season brings many gatherings and snow days, and we rely on our heating units to keep our home and residents comfortable. An overworked unit can struggle to meet your thermostat setting, and result in lost comfort. Heating maintenance can bring peace of mind that your unit is reliable and effectively heating your home.

Lowered Utility Bills

If your heating unit is operating with an underlying issue, it is using more energy to heat your home. The more energy used, the higher your utility bills will be. Heating maintenance increases energy efficiency and keeps money in your pocket each month.
