As a general rule of thumb, your furnace should serve you for anything between 10 and 20 years. However, situations are unique and some furnaces may wear out faster compared to others. If you find your system is getting older and consuming lots of power, you can get relief to a new energy efficient heating system. We can help you in determining whether your system needs repair or replacement and the right type of system for your home.
During the cold season, the last thing you want is a furnace that fails at the peak of winter. The problem with this is that during this particular time, getting a HVAC professional to come and service your heating system can be a challenge. Queues are normally long and most contractors charge exorbitantly high prices.
The best approach is to have your furnace inspected well in good time preferably towards the end of summer. At Air Conditioning Miami Beach, we understand the problems homeowners face with furnace systems and we do all we can to accommodate them both for planned and emergency repairs.
Heating System Preventive Maintenance
Whether you have a furnace, a geothermal heating system, or a heat pump, one thing that you cannot live without is a preventive maintenance contract. The advantage with these service contracts is that they help you get an all-round servicing of your system at regular intervals.
Some of the things to expect during a preventive maintenance exercise include:
Heating System Tune Ups
Your heating system is one of the major assets you have as a homeowner. As such, you need to take good care of it so that it can serve you for long. Through heating tune ups, your system components can be visually inspected, cleaned, and replaced where necessary.
Among the components serviced during a tune up include:
- The heat exchanger
- Pilot light or ignitor
As part of our service standard, we give you a comprehensive tune checklist which contains recommendations and concerns as seen by our technicians for your action.
Filter Inspection and Replacement
We advise our customers to install the best possible types of filters so that their heat pumps can be protected and their indoor environment clean from any particulate matter. From time to time, we advise our customers to have their filters inspected, cleaned, and replaced where necessary.
The recommended inspection and cleaning of filters should be done every month, but if the area doesn’t have as many particles, the inspection and replacement can be done after two or three months.
At Air Conditioning Miami Beach, we invite you to experience the unique benefits of our preventive maintenance service. Learn how you can enhance energy efficiency system performance and minimize costly breakdowns for your heating equipment.
