Winter days are never a good time to have the heating system malfunction. With the frosty Missouri winters where temperatures frequently dip below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, homeowners hate to find their home’s central heating system on fritz. Scheduling a heating system inspection has many benefits in addition to preventing a heating mishap.
A heating system check up affords more than a peace of mind than the home’s comfort system will make it through winter. During HVAC preventative maintenance, a heating contractor evaluates all areas of the heating system. Heating contractors like Hoffmann Brothers perform a comprehensive checkup, looking for any indications of rust, leaks and other signs of a faulty furnace and heating unit.
Some energy analysts, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), contend that all heating system maintenance, repairs and replacements, should always result in a 15 to 25 percent energy savings improvement.
Energy savings represent an undervalued advantage to managing the home’s heating expenses. During preventative maintenance, a certified technician will optimize the furnace and heating unit to use lower energy loads. “Not only do we check your heating system for safety, we clean it. And, then we execute tweaks to optimize its energy savings and efficiency,” shares a spokesperson from Hoffmann Brothers, a heating contractor serving the Town and Country community.
Gas piping is another reason that heating system maintenance is vital to your home’s health. Sometimes piping and other parts become unattached, and loose parts can lead to a carbon monoxide leak. If your home has poor ventilation a gas leak can morph into a combustive scenario. A regular yearly heating inspection can help prevent when could be a devastating accident.
