Will Your Heating System Make It Through the Year?

If you have home comfort issues stemming from a worn-down furnace or boiler, you’re not alone. As many of us have spent more time inside this year, our central heating and cooling systems have gotten a lot more “playing” time—and all that extra work can take its toll on older systems!

As the St. Louis weather has transitioned from the summer heat into the brisk chill of fall, now is the time to check under the hood of your heating system to ensure your home stays comfortable and efficient through the cold winter. 

Now Is the Time To Schedule Heating System Maintenance

One of the goals of properly maintaining your home heating system is to prepare for the unexpected, but it is also to save you money in monthly energy costs and emergency repairs. So, why should you schedule HVAC maintenance service now? 

By scheduling professional maintenance before the long, gray winter, you can experience a number of benefits, including:

  • Dependable home comfort, no matter the weather
  • Lower monthly heating and cooling costs
  • Lower risk of a furnace breakdown
  • Reduced wear and tear and longer life expectancy for your HVAC system

What’s Included in Regular Maintenance?

With our furnace tune ups, the certified HVAC technicians at SmartHouse run your home comfort equipment through a 25+ point inspection. This includes checking integral components of each individual system, like:

Furnace Tune Up

  • Thermostats
  • Air filters
  • Pilot lights
  • Ductwork
  • Heat exchangers
  • Safety controls check
  • Blower door and motor
  • Gas valve operation
  • Combustion chamber inspection
  • Electrical systems check
  • Water or rust damage inspection 

Once your maintenance job is complete, we will also make recommendations if you would benefit from repairing, replacing, or supplementing your home heating and cooling systems. For example, perhaps your furnace is undersized, and in order to heat up that hard-to-reach room, we would recommend installing a ductless mini split for targeted, versatile heating and cooling.
