The Pennsylvania region generally experiences a climate with hot summers and very cold winters. As the leading providers of heating system installations across Easton PA, we understand the importance of well-maintained heating systems that deliver heat as and when it is needed the most. In the video below, you’ll see how maintenance can ensure your heater’s efficiency, and then continue reading as we’ve listed a few of the important benefits of regular heating maintenance:
Whether you warm your home using a heat pump or a gas furnace, maintenance is an important part of keeping your system running efficiently. For instance, a well-maintained heat pump uses 25% less energy than a neglected machine, according to EPA statistics. Additionally, savings that are achieved through reduced monthly operating costs make investing in working with a professional maintenance program a worthy investment.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Central heating systems work as they push warm air throughout a building. However, without sufficient maintenance, they can move contaminants and allergens around the space. Regularly scheduled maintenance tune-ups are essential for systems that burn fuel, such as gas furnaces. With improper care, the byproducts of combustion can corrode equipment and cause leaks, including lethal carbon monoxide. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) stresses the need for maintenance in gas fire heaters, even if they are new furnaces.
Fire Hazard Protection
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) announced recently that space heating is the second most prevalent cause of house fires, after cooking. Heating fires in the home account for over 600 injuries and 150 deaths each year. We recommend that a qualified HVAC technician is scheduled to clean and inspect your heating equipment at least once every six months to avoid fire hazards.
Longevity of Equipment
Seasonal maintenance can help to prolong the life of heating equipment. All the inner workings are inspected, cleaned, and maintained. This way, it helps to discover any tiny issues and address them before they become more substantial and harder to fix.
