Heating and air systems are one of the most expensive items that are installed in Dallas homes. Maintaining these systems is imperative in ensuring that they operate efficiently and last a very long time. Professional annual maintenance of your heating system will ensure that during the cold, winter months you can rely on the system providing comforting, warm air into your home. There are a few things that you can handle on your own to assist in ensuring that the furnace operates efficiently but for the other checkpoints hiring a professional heating and air service company to maintain and tune-up the system can be beneficial as well as catching problems before they become a major problem.
K&S Heating and Air can provide your home with warm, comforting air during cold weather by providing heating maintenance to your home’s heating system. Our comprehensive maintenance will not only increase the efficiency of your heating system but will also assist in extending the life of the furnace or other heating system in your home.
Maintaining the Furnace
Furnaces operate off of one of three different energy sources. These energy sources are electric, gas or oil. Based upon which type of furnace you have installed in your home will determine the tips you should follow in order to assist in maintaining your system.
1. Electric Furnaces
- Check that the thermostat is operating as it should be and make sure to compare the temperature in your home and the temperature reading that is on your thermostat.
- Inspect the air grille and clean it as needed. A dirty grille will block air flow which can impede the performance of the system.
- Read through the manufacturer’s instructions on how often you should exchange air filters for your furnace. Usually, this will be monthly.
2.Gas & Oil Furnaces
- Inspect the fuel lines for possible fuel leaks. If you suspect a fuel leak, collect your loved ones and leave the home immediately. Do not use any electronic devices. Once you are a safe distance from your home, leaving the door open as you exit the premises, contact your gas supplier for assistance.
- Make sure that the control valve is open.
- Change out the air filter according to the directions from the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Clean the air return grille of any dust, dirt or corrosion to ensure airflow is not impeded.
- Compare the temperature in the home to the readout on your thermostat to make sure there are no discrepancies.
- If you have an oil furnace you should have the chimney cleaned annually from soot and corrosion.
Schedule Preventative Maintenance
K&S Heating and Air recommends that you have your furnace inspected on an annual basis. Specifically in the fall, before you begin to use the furnace. Having your system maintained and with regular tune-ups will ensure that the system operates efficiently and will help catch some problems before they become critical.
