As your home heating company, we know how important it is to frequently check and maintain your forced-air heating system. A gas or oil-fired furnace under our care will operate more efficiently, reducing your heating costs anywhere up to 40% and providing you with an increased level of comfort for the heating season ahead. Here are a few of the steps we take to help you stay warm!
Check the filters – This is an important step in preserving your comfort! So much so that it’s recommended that homeowners check the filters once a month and change at least every three months, especially if their home has pets or family members with asthma. It’s a safe enough task for homeowners to do on their own, but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Inspect the ductwork – Almost 30% of energy loss occurs in the ductwork, where air can often escape into the walls, ceilings and other spaces of your home that don’t need to be heated. E.T. Lawson technicians know what to look for when it comes to repairing and resealing separated, blocked or rusty ductwork.
Clean dust and soot from combustion chamber – Dust and soot buildup in the combustion chamber of your furnace can cause your system to heat less efficiently, and could be the reason you don’t get the warm air you’re looking for on a cold day. After inspecting and cleaning the chamber, your equipment will run more smoothly.
It’s vital to your home comfort that you have your equipment inspected regularly. Luckily for you, E.T. Lawson has a wide range of comprehensive service agreements that can keep your heating equipment running like new year after year. If you have any questions about fall equipment maintenance, or you want to enroll in a service agreement, give us a call or contact us online!
