How Often Should My Heating System Be Serviced?

No matter what type of heating system you have, regular maintenance is an essential aspect of keeping it operating in prime condition. Most HVAC professionals agree that heaters should be serviced at least once per year. We recommend having your heating system tested and tuned in the Fall before you switch it on for the first time for the cold season. Call today to discuss the right maintenance plan for your needs and budget.

The Benefits of Heating Maintenance

You might be wondering if you really need professional heating maintenance services. The answer is yes! Heaters that are not properly maintained will lack power, efficiency, and effectiveness. You’ll also experience far more breakdowns and have to replace your system much sooner than necessary.

There are many benefits of routine heating maintenance, including:

  • Increased dependability
  • Reduced utility costs
  • Fewer problems
  • Prolonged system lifespan
  • Better indoor air quality
  • Enhanced comfort

During your heating maintenance appointment, our technicians will search for any minor issues that should be addressed immediately to prevent further damage to your system. If we find any problems, we can help you understand your options and then perform the work quickly and efficiently. At the end of our service, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your system is operating on the highest level and will continue to do so until your next scheduled service.

Can You Run a Furnace With No Air Filter?

It is possible to run a furnace with no air filter, but it is very bad for your home's air quality and furnace system. By running a furnace with no air filter, there is nothing to prevent dust and debris from being sucked into your furnace and then circulated through our your home. This can increase asthma and allergies in individuals as well as pollute the duct work. When the duct work gets extremely polluted like this, it can lead to mold growth. Another major consequence of running a furnace without an air filter is system failure within the furnace. While a filter works to protect your home from dust and debris, it also is the only line of defense for your furnace. Without a filter grime can build up and the blower motor could completely fail.

When to Replace Your Furnace’s Air Filter

One of the most important things you can do to keep your heating system running in great condition, besides annual furnace maintenance, is regularly changing your air filter. Dirty and clogged filters can cause several problems, from placing undue strain on your furnace to decreasing the quality of your indoor air.

The frequency of changing your air filter will depend on several factors, including the type of air filter, how frequently you use your heating system, and whether you have any indoor pets. The higher the quality of your air filter, the longer it will last (four to five months). If you have a lower quality filter or have a pet, you might need to change your filter as often as one to two months. If your air filter is visibly dirty, your home is more dusty than normal, or you notice strange smells coming from your HVAC unit, it’s likely time to replace your air filter.
