Heating system maintenance and repair are crucial to keeping the system in your home or office operating correctly. Minor issues can become much larger if they go unnoticed, but regular maintenance will help you catch them early and get repairs done.

Heating System Inspection

Part of regular heating system maintenance includes inspections in the fall before turning on the heat in your home or office. An HVAC tech or local heating company can assess the system's condition and determine if there are parts that need replacing or repairs that are necessary. A typical inspection looks at things like belts, filters, wiring, controllers, and the thermostat. Each of these parts plays a key role in how the heating system functions, and if one fails, the entire system may shut down. 

The technician will discuss any concerns that arise after the inspection and may recommend repairs before the weather gets cold. Getting the inspection out of the way early so there is time to make repairs is crucial. Most heating system repair services recommend a service call in the late summer or early fall to ensure any necessary adjustments or repairs are complete before you need the furnace or heating system. 

Making Repairs

When the service tech from the heating repair service comes to do your heating system maintenance, they will bring any necessary parts with them so they can get the system running before they leave. Scheduling your repairs a few days or a week after the inspection allows time to get the necessary parts and bring them to your home or office.

While the heating system maintenance technician is working on your system, they will change the filters and clean the system so it runs efficiently, moving clean air throughout the building. If you are unsure which filter type or brand to use, your service tech can recommend ones that work well with your heating system style and may have some available in their truck or can get them for you. 

Emergency Repairs

Even with proper maintenance, your heating system could have an issue that causes it to shut down after you start using it. It is vital to have a heating system maintenance and repair service that you can call for help. Establishing yourself with a company to handle service, maintenance, and repairs throughout the year can provide you with an emergency contact when you need one. 

Calling the same company that handles your inspections and repairs means getting a technician familiar with your system. Often that can make it easier to get the repairs necessary, even if the system shuts down in the middle of the night or over a weekend.
