Maintenance Tips

Keeping your heating and cooling systems in good working order means lower utility bills, additional comfort, and fewer repairs.

Maintenance Scheduling
Schedule a maintenance service before the heating season starts to prevent any problems with your system. It’s better to find out before it’s freezing outside! Do the same for your cooling system before the sweltering season begins.

For the “Do It Yourself-ers”:


Filters
Check your heating and cooling air filters every month while they are in use. Operating your system with old, dirty filters means energy is wasted and may even damage your system. Reminder! Check and clean the filters in your home’s air cleaners and humidifiers. 

System Checks

  • Bleed hot water system radiators at least once a year.
  • Don’t keep clutter near your furnace. It’s a fire hazard, and may keep your system from operating efficiently.
  • To make sure you’re getting the most out of your heating system, keep the heating registers and vents throughout the house free of dust, dirt, and pet hair by vacuuming them at least once a year.
  • Listen for odd sounds when your heating or cooling system kicks in. If you hear anything unusual, get in touch with your service professional so you can head off problems before they become serious.
