Did you know that spring is the perfect time to have your heating system serviced? We know you are probably tired of thinking about heating, and anxious to get on to warm weather and open windows, but hear us out. Spring is a great time for heating system maintenance and repairs – and you’ll be so glad come fall that you did it now!
Allergy season is just getting underway, and the pollutants that come into your home are said to be twice as high as the ones you are exposed to outside! Changing your system filters now is important to help trap and eliminate free particles floating about your home and aggravating any allergies. Change your filters now, mid-summer and again as the cold weather sets in for better indoor air quality. Keeping clean filters also will improve the efficiency of your system and lower your energy bills.
NOW is actually an excellent time of year to have your annual heating system inspection and professional cleaning completed! Here’s why:
- Those strange noises or banging you may have been hearing over the last few months are fresh in your mind, so you will remember to ask the technician about them. By the fall you may have forgotten all about them, and when they start up again you will have to make a special call for service.
- The need for any equipment repairs, or major replacement, can be identified now. This gives you a few months to budget and schedule them. No one wants emergency repairs during cold weather, leaving you without heat and paying emergency call-out rates.
- Heating service companies are less busy now. It’s early for the air conditioning service crunch, so many technicians have more flexibility in their schedules. You can likely get something scheduled when it’s most convenient for you.
- Come fall you will be all set to turn up that thermostat, worry free!
There can be a lot of nasty things lurking in your ductwork, including allergens, mold, and other pollutants. When you schedule your annual, routine furnace or boiler maintenance, ask the technician to inspect your ductwork for any leaks. Also make sure there is no old asbestos heat tape still in use on your ductwork. If you are concerned about what harmful pollutants might be getting sent through your ducts, call a duct cleaning professional to have them cleaned before the next heating system begins.
