How can you ensure that you are able to heat your home with the success that you both demand and deserve?

Read the title above!

It is time to schedule heating maintenance in Everett, WA and the surrounding areas. The fact that winter around here can be comparably mild to those in other parts of the country does not mean that you can afford to take any chances with your home heating system. And, when you schedule your heating maintenance with us, you won’t have to! So read on, enjoy this refresher about all that heating maintenance has to offer you, and schedule service with our team today.

What You Can Do

We are going to lead off with this, because we know that there are some homeowners out there that will take issue with us telling them to schedule a professional heating tune-up. Yes, there are a couple of things that you can do to help maintain your heating system. No, this doesn’t mean that you can skip professional maintenance. 

You can definitely change your air filter regularly. In fact, you must change your air filter regularly. Typically, this means every 1-3 months. Check in on it a few times within that time frame, and change as needed. Also, if you use a heat pump, make sure that you keep the outdoor unit free of yard waste and debris. You’re going to need great airflow around the unit in order for the system to function properly.

Why We Need to Do the Rest

Do you know how to access every nook and cranny of your heater? Do you know how to do so safely? Are you qualified to work with natural gas hookups and connections? Can you test relays, capacitors, and other electrical components? Test refrigerant levels? Seal leaks and recharge the system as needed?

The answer, across the board, is no, you cannot and are not—unless you’re a professional HVAC technician, in which case you already know how vital this service is. Routine maintenance with a trained technician ensures that your system functions properly, efficiently, and reliably, and that no warranties are voided due to unqualified individuals compromising the system.

Why Yearly?

Because you use your heater every year. It really is as simple as that. If you don’t schedule annual heating maintenance, for even one year, you are putting your heater at a major disadvantage. Let us inspect your system and tune it up thoroughly before you need it.

Not only does it optimize the system’s performance, but it also means that we can turn up any problems before they do real damage. It also helps to prevent problems from developing in the first place.
