Heating Maintenance Lexington
Heating Maintenance Experts in Lexington
Routine maintenance is important for the longevity and efficiency of your home’s heating system. While some tasks, such as changing the filter, are simple enough to do yourself, others, such as bleeding the radiators, are best left to the professionals at Value HVAC. It is important to have a basic understanding of your system and what needs to be done to keep it running efficiently.
How To Maintain Your Heating System.
Your heating system should be inspected annually by a qualified technician. This inspection, which is sometimes called a tune-up, will help to identify any potential problems and make sure that your system is operating at peak efficiency. During the inspection, the technician will clean the burners, test the draft regulator, and inspect the heat exchanger. The technician will also clean the air filter and blower assembly. In addition, the technician will check the oil supply if you have an oil-fired system.
After the inspection, the technician will give you a report that outlines any problems that were found and what, if any, repairs or heating maintenance is needed. Be sure to ask the technician to explain anything that you do not understand. It is also a good idea to keep a written record of all the heating maintenance that has been performed on your system, as well as any repairs that have been made. This record will be helpful if you ever have any problems with your system and need to call in a technician.
Some Tasks You Can Do Yourself
As a general rule, it is best to leave most repairs and maintenance to a professional. However, there are some simple tasks that you can do yourself to keep your system running smoothly. One of the most important things that you can do is to change the filter on your furnace or heat pump. Depending on the type of system you have, you will either have a disposable filter or a reusable filter. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for how often to change the filter. Another simple task that you can do is to clean the outside of your condensing unit. The unit should be cleaned at least once a year. Be sure to turn off the power to the unit before you begin cleaning it.
While some of the heating maintenance tasks for your heating system can be done by yourself, others, such as bleeding the radiators, are best left to a professional. It is smart to note that if you have no idea how to do these tasks, call a professional at Value HVAC to do these tasks. By having your system inspected annually and performing some simple maintenance tasks, you can keep your system running efficiently for many years to come.
