What Do Technicians Do During Heating Maintenance?

Living in Michigan means experiencing some very cold temperatures during the winter months. When you’re outside, you expect to bundle up to stay warm. But when you’re in the comfort of your home, you want to feel reasonably warm, no matter what the temperature is outside. That’s why heater maintenance is so important – it ensures that your heater is up to the challenge of keeping your home warm all winter long.

But what exactly do technicians do during heating maintenance appointments? When you know what to expect, you might be more likely to schedule a heating maintenance appointment with someone from our team. And there’s no better time to schedule a heating service in Grand Rapids, MI. You want to make sure your heater is working great before those cold days roll around.

Why Is Heating Maintenance Important?

Your heater takes on wear and tear over time. The heating components are even aging during the summer months when your heater isn’t in use. When you schedule heating maintenance appointments at least once per year, you can identify small problems and fix them before they become big, expensive problems. 

Not only does heating maintenance help your heater run at its best during the upcoming season, but it also extends the life of your heater so that it has the potential for added years of life. Without heating maintenance, your heater may wear down faster, face major repairs, and even need to be replaced sooner than is average. 

What to Know About Heating Maintenance

Our team checks your heater from top to bottom and side to side. They change the filter if it needs to be done, and may even recommend a better-suited filter type or brand based on your family’s unique needs. They also deep clean your unit by wiping down any dust buildup that did make it into your heating system. 

We check all moving parts to ensure that they are properly lubricated. Over time, lubrication wears off and your heater parts can grind together. Heating maintenance helps you stay ahead of this problem. It’s an easy proactive step that can save you from costly repairs in the future. 

We also test your thermostat to make sure it is calibrated correctly. If there are loose wires or other loose parts, we tighten, repair, or replace them. We check and clean your condensate drain pan, and review gas pipes to check for signs of leaks. If we have any concerns, we’ll bring them to your attention and offer a solution.
