Benefits Of Having Your Heating System Inspected Annually

Your heating system, whether in a home or commercial building benefits significantly in many ways from having an inspection before or just after you first start it for the winter.

Energy Efficiency

If your heating system is not working properly, it can mean that you get slightly warm air into the house or business and it runs continuously to keep up with this temperature. That translates to very high electrical bills that you have to pay and still aren’t as warm as you should be if the system were checked out in the beginning.

Many items can contribute to inefficient systems including a dirty air filter that needs replacing. When there is a build up of dust and debris in the return air filter, the system struggles to suck in enough air into the heater to then warm it and return it to the air ducts.

A heating system inspection includes looking at every external and internal part and performing maintenance on them. Dust and debris is often the culprit internally that can prevent some parts from moving as they should operate correctly. Soot inside your system can lead to issues and also affect efficiency.

Your thermostat will be checked to make sure it is functioning properly with a test start of the heating system. This allows a technician to make sure that the thermostat will turn on and off at specific temperatures and work efficiently.

Money Saving Features

If you opt not to have a heating system inspection, you can go to turn on the heater on the coldest day of the year so far when you have family and friends over for the holidays–and nothing happens. No heat whatsoever comes out of the vents. This can be a problem in several ways. First of all, you are cold, and this will be the busiest time of the year when HVAC is needed because other people forego the inspection too. Therefore, it can take a long time for an HVAC technician to arrive and cost you for a service call and all the parts you need. An inspection beforehand allows the technician to be at your home or business already so no additional service call will be needed. It can also help to identify parts that need to be replaced before they go out and they can be corrected in advance of having no heat.
