As temperatures steadily drop in the area from Davis to Fairfield, it’s clear that winter is right around the corner. In order to ensure that you stay warm this season, you need to get your home’s heating system ready.

So, what’s the best way to prepare for winter?

Heating Maintenance

A tune up of your furnace or heat pump prior to each winter is essential to ensuring it runs well.

In addition to keeping you warm throughout the cold weather, preventative maintenance will result in:
  • A reduced chance of emergency breakdowns
    By addressing all pressing issues, your system will perform well throughout the entire winter. You’ll avoid having to spend time in a cold home and pay for costly last minute repairs.
  • Lowered monthly heating bills
    Heating maintenance can increase your system’s energy efficiency, allowing you to stay warmer while using less energy, therefore reducing your home’s heating costs.
  • Less risk of carbon monoxide leakage
    A furnace tune up ensures your system is inspected for carbon monoxide leaks, offering you peace of mind about the health and safety of everyone in your home.
  • Maintaining your warranty
    Most heating systems require yearly maintenance in order for the manufacturer’s warranty to remain active.
  • Extended heating system lifespan
    Regular preventative maintenance for your heat pump or furnace ensures it will run smoothly for many years, helping you avoid early replacement costs.

There are several crucial components of a heating tune up that can help you reap these benefits.

During a maintenance appointment for your heating system the experts at Greiner Heating, Air, and Electric will do a thorough examination, including:
  • Cleaning or replacing your air filter
  • Ensuring all burners are set to the correct combustion settings
  • Cleaning and lubricating all parts to avoid breakdown
  • Adjusting your thermostat
  • Checking that the blower access door has a tight seal
  • Inspecting and cleaning the heat exchanger
  • Removing any blockages
  • Addressing all leaks

Heating System Upgrade

If your heating system is over 10 years old, it may no longer be performing at peak efficiency. In order to make it through the winter in a warm, comfortable and cozy home, you should consider upgrading your existing system to a new, energy efficient furnace or heat pump. High-efficiency furnaces with top annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) ratings can provide extreme comfort and savings during each heating season.
