It is remarkably common for property owners to forego maintenance services on their HVAC systems, often thinking that it is unnecessary, or perhaps that any problems will be covered by warranty.

What Happens if You Don’t Maintain Your Heater
Over time, heaters lose efficiency. Your unit may be running at half the capacity it once was because of dust, grime, and broken pieces. The ducts can become dusty, causing poor air quality inside your home. When things break, the entire system may shut down, leaving you without heat. By giving your heater a close look, we’ll do our best to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Issues That Might Result From Neglecting The Preventative Maintenance Of Your Heater Are:
- Losing coverage from your manufacturer’s warranty
- Energy bills being 30% higher than usual
- Decreased life of your heater by up to 40%
- Home contamination from harmful gases
- Paying extra for emergency repairs or replacements
These are just a few examples of various issues that can arise from not properly maintaining a heater. The best way to avoid these common problems is to invest in quality heater maintenance.
How Often Should a Heating System Be Serviced
Our Richmond heater maintenance experts recommend you service your heating system at least once a year. Since the heater is a commonly used item and requires a lot of energy, with many important parts, it is critical it gets serviced yearly. It needs to be checked, cleaned, and be repaired if any problems arise to ensure proper functionality. People commonly check their heating systems right before the winter time to ensure they have hot air.
What You Can Do to Help
You should hire a professional for interior cleaning and repairs, but there are a few things you can do yourself to ensure the functionality of your heating system. First, make sure to monitor your thermostat. If the batteries on the thermostat die, replace them promptly. If your thermostat is connected to your electrical system, check to see that the circuit isn’t tripped. Set reasonable temperatures in your home that allow for comfort but don’t over-exhaust your system.
It’s critical for your health and the function of your heater to change your air filters regularly. We recommend switching out the air filter in your home every 90 days. If you have pets, you should consider replacing it every 60 days. Commercial property owners should change their air filters every three to four months. It is always best to consult one of our experienced professionals at Davis & Green Electrical about air filter changes, as each unit has unique requirements.
