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.

    Your advice to have maintenance scheduled for at least once a year and to make any necessary repairs for problems that were discovered is a great idea. Properly caring for your heating system would probably be important to ensure it works as efficiently as possible and to have it last longer.

    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 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.
