Your heating system is going to need to be maintained in order to keep it running year after year and protect your family and your home from the cold weather looming outside. Without proper maintenance, your system will break down prematurely and at the worst of times, which is not something you want to have to deal with. If your system breaks down, an emergency call for repairs can be very costly, and if your system is in need of more than just repairs. you may end up being without heat for a few days. If you aren't maintaining your heating system, you are setting your system up for failure. Read on for some heating system maintenance you should be doing.
Clean The Unit
Clean both the inside and outside of your heating system unit. Open up the main control panel and vacuum out any dust and debris that may be laying inside, then clean up around the exterior as well. Clean off dust and dander, and clean the area surrounding it to ensure there is enough airflow to the unit and that the unit itself is not surrounded by items that could be a fire hazard. Clean out all of your vents as well to ensure your system is getting proper air flowing throughout your home and that dust and dander aren't simply being blown around your home.
Change The Filter
Change the air filter in the unit as often as necessary, if you have a large family, or you have a lot of pets, you should be changing your filter more often than someone that lives alone without any pets at all. Not every household is the same, so you need to change your air filter according to your needs at your home. The air filter should usually be changed at least once per month. If you notice a lot of dust and dander in your home, you may want to change it more often. Look for HEPA filters that help to trap more dust and dander. This can help anyone in your home that has breathing problems as well.
If you are not maintaining your heating system, it could cause a breakdown of your system to occur much sooner than you anticipated. Hire a professional company to do the heating maintenance work for you on your heating system to ensure it runs properly year after year.
