As the cool temperatures begin to come, it is important that you take some time to go over your current heating system and look for signs you need some essential maintenance. Because heaters are so complicated, obviously there is not much you can do to repair these systems on your own, but the experts at 1st Choice Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning are offering some simple, do-it-yourself solutions to maximize your heating performance and get the most out of energy savings this fall and winter.
- Prior to turning on your home heating services, here are some precautions you can take to take care of your heater:
- Check your furnace. Make sure that dust and dirt has been vacuumed out of the burner. If you replace your furnace filter, you can seriously cut down on allergens and pollutants getting into your home and circulating around.
- Check major components for obvious signs of wear-and-tear. The heat exchanger and pilot light should pass a visual inspection for cracks and buildup.
- Using oil from any hardware store, you can lubricate the motor bearings in your heater to keep it quiet and smooth.
