It’s officially fall! While it’s hard to believe that summer has come and gone, we are moving into the fall season and it is more important than ever to ensure that your heating system is working efficiently and will be able to carry you through the chilly autumn and winter months.

We have been lucky to have some pretty mild weather so far this month, when we’d often already been seeing strong gusts and chilly mornings and evenings, but heating season is right around the corner and we want to make sure that all of our clients will be comfortable over the next several months in their home. Here are a few of our top tips for maintaining your heating system.

Schedule maintenance: It’s important to have your system maintained at least once a year. While summer and winter tend to be our busiest seasons now is the time to schedule maintenance for your heating system.

Make necessary repairs: Following regular maintenance, there may be repairs to your system that need to be made in order to keep your system running in tiptop shape. While repairs can be a financial investment, it is far less costly to take care of small repairs than dealing with problems once they become catastrophic.

Change air filters: Air filters should be cleaned or replaced between each season, and doing so can help to keep your system running efficiently. If you have not already done so for the fall season, go ahead and change your air filter to ensure that warm air can easily flow throughout your home and to improve the indoor air quality of your house.

Replace faulty systems: When properly maintained, your heating system should last for years, but eventually it will need to be replaced. If your home still has its original heating system, or if you have noticed efficiency slowly decreasing over the past few winter seasons, it is likely time to invest in a replacement. Our team of HVAC professionals can help you to decide on a unit that is perfect for your home and lifestyle and work to have it installed before the start of the winter season.

    I just wanted to thank you for going over some maintenance tips to take care of a heating company. It’s good to know that the system will need to have a maintenance check every year. I’m interested to learn if there is an ideal time to get this checked, like if a fall is the best time or something like that.

  5. Elsa Anderson

    I was planning to have a heating system installed in our new estate since we’re moving to a colder area soon. Additionally, having a heater would be quite a cozy way to stay in the home at times. I liked that you mentioned how it’s maintenance is only needed annually and its busiest seasons would be in winter and summers. That means it’s not a heavy burden to have when it comes to maintaining it, especially during spring and fall. I’ll have a contractor at the ready then for when we have a heating system to be installed. Thanks!

    I appreciate you talking about how all heating systems will need to be replaced eventually. I’ve been living in my parents’ house now that they’ve passed away, and I don’t think the furnace has been worked on in a few decades. I might have to call a heating contractor and have them replace the faulty systems so the house can be warmed properly.

    Thanks for the idea to schedule maintenance and have a system maintained at least once a year. I am in the need of induction heater repair, and so after the repair, I’ll be sure to get regular maintenance. Changing the air filters for my heating unit will also be something I’ll try to actively do more than what I’ve done in the past to keep my unit running longer.

  15. Jorge McMillan

    My wife and I have made a big move from our college apartment to a nice home. It’s been nice, but now that we don’t have an apartment maintenance crew to come fix things like our heater and fridge, we are in the process of trying to figure out how to take care of those things ourselves. Since the weather is very cold right now, our heater is very first. Since it’s a new house and a new heater, I think I’m going to start with the tip the article suggested and start scheduling regular appointments to have a professional come out and take a look at it. This was a very helpful article, thank you so much for sharing it.

  16. Ruby Penrod

    Thank you for mentioning that air filters should be cleaned or replaced between seasons. We moved to a new state and are currently looking for someone to service our heater and AC. Thank you for the tips on heating system maintenance.

  17. Roger Middleton

    My home has been really cold lately and we’re thinking that we might need to have a new heating unit installed. I liked that you had mentioned that it can be important to replace faulty systems to avoid inefficiency in energy used. We’ll have to start looking around for a company that can handle a heating installation.

  18. Kyle Wayne

    I thought it was interesting that you talked about how taking care of problems quickly is far less costly than dealing with a problem once they become catastrophic. My younger brother just moved and is looking to get a heating system repair. I think I will talk to him about hiring a professional he can rely on so he can avoid catastrophic problems in the future.

  19. Amanda Drew

    I have recently moved into a new home, but it was built in the 1980s, and I think that the HVAC system is from that time. So, for one thing, the heater isn’t working as well as I would like because the house is always cold. I think that it’s good that you point out that repairs can be a sort of financial investment if you take care of them before they get too big. I guess that I’ll just need to find someone who could repair my heater now and get me started on a maintenance schedule.

  20. Ridley Fitzgerald

    I appreciate your tips for finding a good HVAC contractor. Our heating system has been blowing cold air recently, and we can’t have that. Getting the system maintained once a year, like you said, would probably help with that.

  21. Bethany Birchridge

    I liked that you said to have a professional come and check your heater once a year. This last November, our heater broke and it was so cold. I think these tips could really keep it from breaking down again.

  22. Jordan

    I’ve been needing to get a new heating system. I’m glad you talked about how you should schedule maintenance with a heating system service. I’m going to have to look for a good heating system service in our area that can help me!

  23. Gary Puntman

    I agree that you should change your air filters regularly. I have noticed that this helps my heater work more effectively, like you said. This is important in the summer months as well. It will help your home keep cooler.

  24. Bethel Smith

    We are finally leaving winter and our heater has done a great job up until now. The heat circulation takes a lot longer than it used to. I will be sure to follow your suggestion and check our air filters and see if there are any faulty systems. This could be a reason as to why it’s struggling now. If that doesn’t work, I’ll be sure to call a professional to come take a look.

  25. Joy Butler

    Am not well versed with HVAC, so every time I notice that there’s a poor air flow, I will just check if there’s any object that blocking the air passing in my unit, and that’s all. If there would come a time that I can not fix it anymore, I guess, the option of getting it service is all I really need! You are right, an scheduled maintenance will help to maximize its performance.

  26. James Anderson

    It totally makes sense when you mentioned that now is the time to schedule the repair and maintenance of one’s heating system, as summer and winter tends to be the busiest seasons for most people. It looks like my heating system isn’t working smoothly like it was. To avoid getting it broken in the middle of summer, I’ll be getting in touch with an HVAC contractor now.
