It’s Time for a Heating Tune-Up!
Is your Ventura or Los Angeles County home heating ready for the cooler weather? If you want to stay comfortable all winter long, make sure you schedule a heating tune-up before the temperatures drop! Thankfully we don’t have to worry about intense snow storms or serious blizzards in SoCal, but homes can still get plenty chilly around here–especially at night!
If you want to make sure your home stays warm and cozy for all your guests during the holidays, it is important to have a heating tune-up scheduled every year. No one wants to wait last minute and be caught in the cold!
Do I Really Need Regular Heating Tune-Ups?
Even though you may not depend on your heating system as much as your AC unit, it needs some love still. Whether or not you are using it once a year or every day, your heater or furnace should get at least a yearly tune-up to ensure it is in tip-top condition for when you need it most.
Just a few things that are taken care of during a heating tune-up include:
- Thermostat inspected and properly programmed
- Air volume dampers adjusted (for furnaces)
- Any combustible materials or fire hazards identified
- Air filters cleaned or replaced
- Gas burners cleaned and adjusted (for furnaces)
- Electrical operation tested
- Connections and all wirings inspected
- Refrigerant levels and reversing valves tested (for heat pumps)
- Lubrication of parts
There is so much more that goes into heating tune-ups on top of these key elements, which is why it is so important to have an expert perform this type of work at least once a year on your heating system.
Remember, even if you haven’t noticed any problems with your heater, heat pump, or furnace, you should still schedule routine maintenance. The whole purpose is to catch problems before they surface, not fixing them after they crop up! By scheduling regular tune-ups, you can not only save yourself money on repairs and costlier replacements, but also make your system more efficient in the long run. Either way, you’ll ensure you are staying green this holiday season when you winterize your home and maintain your HVAC system.
