Buford’s Comfort Control Inc Will Keep Your Furnace, Heat Pump or Boiler Running
Heating maintenance can be confusing to those of us without the DIY spirit. If you have a furnace and you do want to perform some maintenance on your own, there are some maintenance activities that a homeowner can do by herself:
- Change your filter: Each year, homeowners pay extra for energy because their filter is blocked.
- Visual inspection: Make sure all tubes are securely connected and smell for sulfur.
- Dust: You can use a soft paintbrush to remove any dust and dirt from the inside components.
If these tasks seem overwhelming or you’d just rather have someone else do it, call us and we’ll take care of all of your furnace maintenance for you - clearing the flame sensor, emptying the drainage pipe, inspecting the wires and more.
At least twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall, a gas furnace should be serviced. These issues can typically be avoided with yearly maintenance, which includes a careful inspection and cleaning of the parts that frequently break down, such as the air filter, fan, pilot light, and heat exchanger.
Your HVAC system works tirelessly to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Regular HVAC tune-ups can help ensure that your system can keep up with the demands placed on it, extend its useful life, and even help you avoid some costly repairs.
Schedule two tune-ups per year if your system is five years old or older. If your system is newer, an annual tune-up should suffice.
HVAC inspections should ideally be scheduled at the start of the spring and/or fall seasons. The weather typically changes in the spring and fall, causing your HVAC system to switch from heating to cooling or vice versa.
Need Heat Pump Maintenance in Buford?
If you have a heat pump, you too can benefit from a technician’s yearly maintenance. Our technicians can clean ducts, filters, indoor coils and more to ensure your heat pump runs smoothly all winter long.
Boiler Maintenance in Buford
As with furnaces, there are some aspects of maintenance that can be handled by the willing homeowner. For example, you can run and watch your boiler for 20 to 30 minutes to observe if:
- Heat production is sufficient.
- There is even heat output between vents.
- There are signs of leaking water.
- Your boiler starts to make noise.
If you see any issues, whether the heat doesn’t seem to make it to all of your vents or there’s evidence of water leakage, your best bet is to call Comfort Control Inc. We’ll have one of our professionals make sure your boiler isn’t displaying any dangerous problems.
