Heating season is upon us
This year the farmer’s almanac is predicting a long, cold winter. There is an advantage in having your commercial furnace/heating system checked before it gets to cold and you end up in a no-heat situation.
Reliability – Regular maintenance is a must, having a qualified technician check your system and verifying everything is operating within specifications will help in catching a small problem before it becomes a No Heat situation.
Peace Of Mind – One of the major steps of our preseason inspection is verifying the equipment is operating safely and that all safety controls are functional.
Energy Efficiency – A preseason inspection allows us to verify gas pressure, combustion efficiency, refrigerant pressures, amp draws and voltages to ensure the equipment is operating at peak efficiency. A heat pump with low refrigerant or a gas furnace with low gas pressure can easily add hours and hours of unnecessary run time and excessive utility costs.
Comfort – A properly operating heating and cooling (HVAC) system will maintain the home at the optimum comfort levels. Proper airflow, temperatures and humidity levels have a huge impact on how comfortable your home feels. Your HVAC system can keep the temperature exactly at the thermostat setting, but excessive airflows and/or low humidity levels will still make your home feel uncomfortable.
Longevity – Routine maintenance and proper equipment operation, has been proven again and again, to lengthen the life of the heating and cooling equipment. Proper refrigerant levels, gas pressures, etc. allow a unit to operate at peak efficiency which will allow the equipment to last much longer.
Carbon Monoxide – Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless gas that can be produced by an improperly operating gas or oil furnace. We perform a combustion analysis on every gas or oil furnace that we inspect to ensure the furnace is operating efficiently and not producing carbon monoxide. We also print out a report listing each unit’s operating efficiency and combustion results and provide them to our customer.
Indoor Air Quality – Dirty filters increase energy usage and result in more no heat issues than any other single contributor. A clean filter or properly operating air cleaner will ensure proper airflow through the equipment and throughout the home, resulting in a more evenly heated home.
Fire Hazards – An improperly operating furnace with incorrect gas pressure, dirty burners or defective safety controls can result in flame roll out or excessive temperatures that can damage the equipment or worse yet, the possibility of a house fire, if left unchecked.
Availability – A preseason check out of your heating system will greatly reduce the chances that you will experience a “no heat” situation.
Energy Conservation – An improperly operating heating and cooling system will consume much more energy and will result in excessive utility costs to the homeowner. Maintaining your heating system will reduce your carbon footprint, and at the same time, keep more money in your wallet.
