You know your car needs regular oil changes. The same maintenance rules apply for your heater. Heating systems need regular attention in order to stay at peak performance. If you want a trouble free operation all winter long, it’s important to maintain the heater on a regular basis. Here are a few things you can do.
Change air filters
The most important thing you can do for your heater is to change the air filters on a regular basis. Luckily, this simple task is something any homeowner can do. You will want to check your air filter at least every month and change it more often if the filter looks dirty. When you change the air filters, you are ensuring your heater’s efficiency and effectiveness. It also helps you keep clean air flowing through your home.
Schedule an annual maintenance service
It is also a good idea to schedule an annual checkup with GLM Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. Heater maintenance is important and you aren’t an HVAC technician so you can’t do it all on your own. Technicians will come to your house and take care of every little detail inside and out. They will clean coils, check wires, and make sure the heater is functioning properly. These maintenance service checks can prevent a break down later. The technicians will notice if anything small is out of place and fix it before it becomes a larger issue. They will also prolong the life of your heater since it will run more efficiently because of the checks.
