Heating System Maintenance

To operate properly and efficiently, heating systems require regular maintenance. As any heating contractor will tell you, most heating repairs are a result of poor maintenance. Keeping air filters clean is a simple yet vital maintenance task that you can do yourself. Most air filters require cleaning or replacement quarterly, but if you have pets, filters will need to be replaced more often.

Asides from replacing filters, annual tune-ups for boilers, furnaces, and heat pumps are necessary to keep these heating systems in peak condition and catch potential problems before they damage equipment.

Professional heating maintenance services from McAllister include:

  • System and Component Cleaning – By clearing out dust, debris, and grime, you optimize the efficiency of your heating system and reduce general wear and tear.
  • Parts and Blower Motor Checks – We check all parts for signs of damage and ensure the blower system is optimized for effective air flow.
  • Component Lubrication – Properly lubricated moving parts help to improve efficiency and increase system longevity, reducing the risk of a mid-season breakdown.
  • Electrical Connection Checks – Checks ensure connections are secure and safe, reducing risks and supporting proper performance.
  • Filter Checks
  • Thermostat Calibration – Thermostat calibrations ensure accurate temperature readings and effective heating within your home or business.

The Advantages of Professional Routine Maintenance

No appliance is exempt from requiring upkeep and maintenance to continue working properly. You depend on your HVAC system to keep you comfortable for months at a time, so it is important to ensure that everything is in working order on a regular basis.

Professional heating system maintenance from the experts at McAllister will provide:

  • Lower Monthly Heating Costs – A poorly maintained system works harder to do its job, eating up more energy than a new or properly maintained system. If your system is receiving the maintenance it should be, you can expect to see much lower heating costs.
  • Fewer Costly Repairs – Over time, your system begins to collect dust and grime, components need replacing, and electrical connections weaken. However, with proper maintenance, these issues will be fixed long before they become serious problems.
  • Better Indoor Air Quality – By removing dust, pollen, and mold spores from your furnace or heating system, you reduce the amount of debris in the air of your home or business.
  • A Longer Heating System Lifespan – With consistent care, you are far more likely to see that ten, fifteen, or twenty year lifespan you want from your heating system.
  • Protection for Your Warranty – Most modern heating system warranties require that you seek routine maintenance in order for them to remain valid. Our complete maintenance services offer all of the required tune-ups, checks, and repairs needed to keep your system within its warranty.
  • Safer heating systems. Heating systems, particularly those that rely on oil or gas, can be dangerous if something goes wrong. Worn out systems are more likely to experience leaks and combustion problems, both of which are mitigated by preventative maintenance.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SEER rating?

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is how the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment is measured. The SEER is the amount of cooling your system will deliver per dollar spent on electricity, as compared to other systems. For example, a 3-ton unit may have a SEER efficiency rating of 13, 14, or 15. The higher the SEER the more efficient the system will be. The SEER rating of any given unit can range anywhere from 13 to 21.

Each split system cooling unit has a nominal SEER rating. This rating can be increased with the upgrade of the same series indoor unit. The SEER rating of a system is derived based on the combination of equipment installed in the home. The outdoor equipment (heat pump or air conditioner), as well as the indoor equipment (evaporator coil and furnace, or air handler), play a vital role in the total rating.

Your heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your home everyday. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down any machine if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing regular maintenance, you can maximize the lifecycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many common equipment failures. Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires and corroded electrical contacts that the naked eye may not notice. You should have maintenance done on your system regularly to ensure maximum efficiency and allow prevent possible problems that may occur in the near future.

To keep your equipment running efficiently and maximize the useful life of your system all equipment needs to have an annual tune-up. At least once a year heat pumps and air conditioners require a professional tune-up. Inspections on boiler and furnace systems should include ductwork, pipes, dampers, valves, the chimney, registers, radiators, pumps, blowers, fuel lines, the gas meter, oil tank and every part of the actual furnace and boiler. Meanwhile, heat pump and air conditioning unit inspections should also include inspections of the fan, compressor, indoor coils, outdoor coils, line kits and refrigerant lines.

Since they are electronic, programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. With programmable thermostats you can control the temperature in your home at different times of day without ever touching your thermostat. Because everything is automatic, you will never forget to change the setting on your own. A WiFi enabled thermostat allows you to monitor and adjust your home’s heating and cooling system remotely, helping you reduce your heating and cooling costs.

Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, McAllister… The Service Co. recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
