We all know the stress of having an appliance breakdown at the wrong moment, whether it’s your fridge the day before a big party, your air conditioner on a hot Christmas day or your home heating system in the middle of a cold night. There is no right moment.
You might think that these things “just happen out of the blue”- Some do, they can’t be avoided. However, when it comes to your home heating system there are ways to help prevent a breakdown before it occurs and the most simple and effective way is to have it checked over by a licensed HVAC technician.
1. Parts and materials check
Heating systems use fans to push air from the motor into each room through ducts. Damage to any part of this system can result in a malfunctioning unit. An inspection confirms the condition of all parts and materials to prevent you from suddenly being left in the cold.
2. Temperature control
Not only is it annoying when your system doesn’t heat like it used to, but it’s one of the first signs that something might not be working as it should inside the motor. Get it checked to organise a repair or replacement ASAP!
3. Cleanliness of ducts
The duct system can serve as a means to distribute nasty contaminants throughout your home. If they are not cleaned periodically, dust can settle along the inside of these ducts and be blown into your rooms every time you turn on your ducted heating.
4. Protect your family from carbon monoxide- the silent killer.
Carbon Monoxide is an odourless, colourless gas that can be produced by faulty, or poorly maintained gas heaters, and it can be fatal. This is a LIFE saving reason to have a maintenance service performed. Carbon monoxide should be tested for every 2 years at a minimum as it can come from any system, old or even brand new.
