It’s a question every Long Island homeowner should be asking right about now. Sure, the really cold weather has yet to rear its ugly head, but you don’t want to be unprepared when it does. Fall is the ideal time to get a heating system tune-up, to head off any problems this winter and get your system ready for frigid temperatures.
We think tune-ups are essential to your home comfort. Why? Regular maintenance on your heating system will keep components working more efficiently for longer. It helps prevent costly repairs and ensures that you and your family won’t face a breakdown when you need your heat the most. Not only that, tune-ups help you save up to 30% off of your energy bill each year!
To prepare your heating system for the winter season, we recommend that you sign up for a planned maintenance program (we call these â€œEnergy Saver Plansâ€). When our customers schedule planned maintenance with us, our certified techs come out to do a thorough inspection of all heating system components.
Some points of inspection include:
- Check and adjust pilot and safety controls
- Lubricate motors and bearings
- Check heat exchanger for cracks
- Change filters
- Check pressure switches
- Check circulator pump
- Check temperature rise for proper operation of the heating system
- Check gas valve
- Check electrical connections
- Check belt and adjust tension
- Check thermostat controls
- Check condensate pump
- Check vent pipe
- Vacuum clean burners and compartments as applicable
Right now, we’re offering a $20 off any heating system repair or maintenance. On top of this incentive, you’ll get a 15% discount on parts and labor when you sign up for an Energy Saver Plan. So, don’t wait until winter comes! Now is the time to think about getting your heating system checked out. Contact us to schedule your heating system maintenance and get peace of mind at an affordable price.
