Keep Your Home Warm This Winter With Heater Maintenance

November 21, 2013

Heater MaintenanceHaving your heater break down in the middle of a cold winter is no fun at all. Here at Tap-Roots, we recommend regular heater maintenance and inspections, especially just prior to the winter season. With regular maintenance, you can be sure that your heater will be working properly this winter and that your house stays nice and warm.

Regular Inspections Ensure a Long Lifespan

Heaters, including furnace units, should be inspected regularly by a trained technician. Dominion East Ohio says that technicians need to make sure they are conducting thorough inspections so that nothing is missed. They should check all the vents to determine what may need replacing or simple heater maintenance. Technicians should also check the safety components of the unit and make sure the pilot light or flame sensor is cleaned and working.

Dominion East Ohio suggests that homeowners should get heaters inspected prior to winter, especially if they have a furnace. These check-ups can ensure that the heater stays operational throughout the cold season. To receive the maximum value of the heater, maintenance should be done on a regular basis. Technicians can catch problems early on and avoid a break down. This will keep the unit running for a long time.
