Maintain Your System With A Seasonal Furnace Tune-Up

Maintaining your heater is crucial, especially when the temperature drops and you rely on it for warmth. Heating systems require proper upkeep to work efficiently and safely. A well-maintained unit can also save you money on energy bills, as it runs more efficiently and doesn’t require frequent repair.

At Absolute Comfort Air, we have all the experience you need to keep your heater running at the top of its game. We have the answers you desire to ensure your system operates without error. Read ahead to learn tips for DIY heater maintenance so your heater can continue to function effectively.

Why Is Regular Heater Maintenance Important?

Seasonal tune-ups are crucial for many reasons. They enhance the efficiency of your furnace, which allows you to save energy and money on your utility bills. Regular upkeep also identifies and resolves minor issues before they escalate, allowing you to have peace of mind regarding your system. Routine maintenance helps you get the most from your unit and can ultimately extend its service life.

DIY Heater Maintenance Tips

Before contacting our team to perform maintenance, there are a few things you can do to benefit your system! By caring for your system, you can reap the benefits a fully functioning heater has to offer.

Change The Filter Regularly

One of the easiest tasks, yet one of the most overlooked ones, is changing your system’s air filter regularly. A dirty filter can affect airflow and cause the system to work harder to circulate air.

This issue increases energy consumption and may lead to costly repairs. Check the instruction manual to identify the right filter and how frequently it needs changing. Generally, the filter should be changed every three months.

Keep The System Clean

Dust, dirt and debris on the heater can affect its performance, causing it to work harder. Clean the exterior of the heater and vacuum any debris around it. Also, ensure that the surrounding area is free from clutter and is well-ventilated.

Check Electrical Connections

Check the electrical connections and wires to ensure they’re secure and tight. Loose connections can cause the system to stop working, generate heat, or worse — start a fire. For safety reasons, we recommend letting a professional handle your unit’s electrical components.

Test The Thermostat

A faulty thermostat can cause the heater to operate inefficiently or stop working altogether. Test your thermostat by adjusting the temperature setting to see if it responds accordingly. If it doesn’t and is battery-powered, replace the batteries and test it again. Contact a professional to inspect the component if it still doesn’t function correctly.
