It feels like yesterday you and your family were lounging in your pool to feel a great sense of relief. But now that the cold months are just around the corner, you probably think that it is wise to turn your heating system on. But wait! Before you do that, have your HVAC checked by a professional technician to make sure that everything works in peak condition.
Here’s what your HVAC contractor should do for a heating system inspection this fall:
- Conduct A Thorough System Cleaning
A thorough cleaning is important to get your heating system ready for the new season. The first thing your HVAC service expert should do is clean the furnace and other equipment associated with it. Then he will replace the air filter. Grime, dust and other small particles can build up in your heating system, making it work inefficiently and reducing its performance to effectively heat your home.
- Check Out The Occurrence of Air Leakage
A heated air is a wasted air if it fails to reach its destination. Your HVAC technician should make sure that there is no air leakage in all areas of your home and the air is properly delivered to the right vents. Air leakage will not just result in poor or ineffective heating indoors; it can also lead to high energy consumption.
- Check Each Component of Your Heating System
Checking the components of your heating system will ensure that everything is in its proper place and condition. Although your heating system works well and produces optimum heat, it is still best to check if there are missing or broken parts to avoid bigger issues down the line.
- Clean Your Ducts
If your duct system has not been cleaned for a long time, it might be necessary to offer it a professional cleaning session. Cleaning it can get rid of harmful air contaminants and allergens that might have accumulated last summer months. Also, this will help protect the quality of your indoor air.
- Bleed the Air Out
Bleeding the air out of your radiators is one important step your HVAC technician should not overlook. This process will ensure that a significant amount of heat is evenly delivered in all areas of your home.
