Benefits of Installing a New Heater
Is your heater nearing the end of its lifespan? Instead of crossing your fingers that your unit survives another year, it can be more beneficial to replace the system. Some of the advantages of installing a new unit can include:
- Reduced energy bills due to a more energy-efficient unit.
- Increased climate control to make your house more comfortable.
- Improved indoor air quality.
- Peace of mind that you will not need to replace or repair the unit in the near future.
Ways to Properly Maintain Your Furnace
To ensure your furnace keeps your house warm and comfortable all winter, it’s important to keep it properly maintained. Some ways to keep it maintained include:
- Booking a yearly inspection with a professional. You should ideally schedule this for early fall - before the cold weather sets in. This allows a heating contractor to ensure your unit is working properly and to identify any issues that need to be repaired.
- Replace the filters regularly, typically at least every three months. If you have pets you may need to change them more often.
- Install a carbon monoxide detector and have it inspected by a professional during the yearly system tune-up.
- Examine the ducts to look for leaks.
- Check the blower to look for obstructions. If needed, lubricate the component.
- Inspect the inside of the unit for defects like rust, holes and separated seams.
- Clean the burners with fresh water to remove dust and debris.
- Clean the sensor and pilot with a wire brush and emery cloth.
- Check the “high limit” on the unit to prevent overheating.
- Remove obstructions from around the unit.
