Heater Maintenance

Heater maintenance is an important part of keeping your home comfortable and safe during the winter. By following a few simple tips, you can help ensure that your heater runs smoothly all season long.

One of the most important things you can do for your heater is to schedule annual maintenance. This will help to identify any potential problems before they cause expensive repairs. It's also a good idea to check your heater's filters regularly and replace them as needed. Dirty filters can reduce the efficiency of your heater and cause it to break down sooner.

Another key to keeping your heater running smoothly is making sure that the area around it is clear. Make sure there are no obstacles blocking the vents, and keep furniture and other objects away from the unit. This will help ensure that the heat is distributed evenly throughout the room.

Finally, be sure to adjust the thermostat as needed to find the right temperature for your comfort level. Don't crank up the heat so high that you end up wasting energy and money. Instead, find a temperature that is comfortable and economical.

How to Keep your Heater Running Smoothly All Winter Long

Your heater is an important part of your home - it keeps you warm all winter long. But like any other piece of equipment, it needs regular maintenance in order to run smoothly. Here are some tips on how to keep your heater running smoothly all winter long:

If you have a gas heater, the first thing you should do is check the pilot light. If it's gone out, relight it according to the instructions in your owner's manual. Once the pilot light is lit, turn on the gas and set the thermostat to your desired temperature. If your heater doesn't seem to be heating up as much as it used to, you may need to adjust the flame. Gas heaters have a knob that controls the amount of gas that flows into the burner. Turning it up will make the flame higher and increase the heat output. Just be careful not to turn it up too high or you'll waste gas.

If you have an electric heater, there are a few things you can do to keep it running efficiently. First, make sure the filter is clean. A clogged filter will restrict airflow and make the heater work harder than it needs to. Second, if your heater has a "fan only" setting, use it occasionally to circulate the air in your home and prevent hot spots from forming.

Finally, no matter what type of heater you have, be sure to schedule annual maintenance with a qualified technician. They'll clean the unit and make sure all the parts are in good working order. This will help prevent costly repairs down the road and keep your heater running smoothly all winter long.

When should you replace your heater?

The best time to replace your heater is before the cold weather hits. If you wait until the temperature drops and your heater breaks, you'll be stuck in the cold with no heat. So if you're thinking about replacing your heater, now is the time to do it.

If your heater is more than 20 years old, it's probably time for a new one. Heaters last an average of 20-30 years, so if yours is older than that, it's likely not working as efficiently as it should be. Even after 15 years, it may be time for a replacement, especially if your unit has been experiencing difficulty keeping up with the heating of your home. And if your heater is making strange noises or costing a lot of money to operate, it's probably time for a replacement.

If you're not sure whether or not you need a new heater, call a professional heating contractor for advice. They can inspect your heater and let you know whether or not it needs to be replaced.

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.
