Fall in the Atlanta area is dominated by fluctuating weather patterns. You may wake up to a crisp chill in the air, only to watch the thermometer climb to warmer temperatures by mid-afternoon.
Before the cold weather really sets in, make sure an Atlanta heating company services your heater. Furnaces are often neglected when it comes to maintenance, setting the stage for a costly breakdown. The last thing you want is to discover heating issues when it’s freezing out.
Professional service and maintenance ensures your heater is running efficiently. If problems are detected, you’ll have the benefit of fixing them before it’s an emergency.
Benefits of an Inspection
Around seventy-five percent of ‘no heat’ calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Without annual service, you run the risk of being left in the cold.
Neglecting maintenance also poses health hazards. If your heater is leaking carbon monoxide, the exposure can result in headaches, dizziness, nausea, and even death. These leaks are hard to detect since the gas is odorless and colorless, but technicians know what to look for.
Components of a Heater Tune-Up
There are several components of fall heater maintenance. While the service offerings vary by company, some portions of the tune-up are standard across the HVAC industry.
Your technician will check the thermostat to determine if it’s running properly. Faulty thermostats can skyrocket your energy costs by making the unit work harder than it needs to. The electrical connections and voltage will be inspected and tested. The filter will be changed, and system controls will be checked for proper operations.
If you didn’t schedule maintenance to avoid paying the service fee, know that inspections actually save you money in the long run. Annual cleaning and tune-ups keep the heater at peak operating performance.
The cost for a system check-up will vary depending on the company, but prevention pays off if it prevents emergencies. Regular maintenance also protects your investment by identifying issues that could result in costly repairs or replacements.
Keep in mind that heating your home is a major expense on your energy bill. Heater maintenance ensures it’s running efficiently to keep costs down.
