Can I Do My Own Heating Maintenance?

Scheduling heating maintenance every year is one of the most important things you can for the life of your system. Heating maintenance is a professional service, which involves a technician adjusting some of the parts of your system that may be bent out of shape and cleaning dirty parts that can get in the way of the efficiency of your system. An inspection also helps you to discover whether any part of your system risks breaking down soon.

Professional heating maintenance can help you to save some money on heating repair bills and your energy bills. But these days, many people hope they can save some more money on the job by skipping calling the expert and doing the task on their own instead. However, we’d like to encourage you to choose professionals who know the proper safety procedures to follow and who care about ensuring the lifespan of your unit.

Professionals have the expertise to follow through with the job in the safest way. Modern gas furnaces are generally very safe, but when they are handled improperly, you still run the risk of electrical danger, gas leaks, and more. A trained technician simply knows what to look for and what may be a potential hazard.

And a technician is trained to recognize when a component of your heater is not quite right. You may not know what to look for or how to recognize a bent component like an out-of-place thermocouple or flame sensor. Technicians also know which parts to clean and the proper methods to use for cleaning.

In fact, even if you plan to read every guidebook on the subject, you would still be unable to perform some key maintenance tasks, such as checking air pressure and measuring voltage, which require special tools. Luckily, professionals already have the right equipment. The cost of a maintenance visit is certainly worth avoiding the cost of these professional-grade maintenance tools.
