Between inflation, gas prices, and the holiday expenses, our wallets have been feeling pinched lately. The last thing you need is for your home’s furnace or boiler to break down and create a huge repair bill.
There are ways you can avoid this that are easy and cost-effective. Not only will they help prevent your heating system from breaking down, but they’ll also make your home more comfortable and cut your energy costs!
These two tips are easy to follow.
If your home’s furnace or boiler has not gotten its annual maintenance tune-up, stop procrastinating!
Four out of five heating system breakdowns could have been prevented with regular professional maintenance like that done by Johnny Prescott’s trained and experienced service technicians.
Why is it so important to have your heating system tuned up on a yearly basis? It aids in the efficient functioning of your heating system. This may save you a lot of money on your energy bills. An annual maintenance service gives our service technicians the opportunity to thoroughly examine your system, allowing them to detect issues before they get worse and result in a breakdown and big repair bills. Finally, having professional maintenance regularly can help keep your heating system’s warranty in effect.
We have outstanding service technicians, but they can’t be in your home 24/7. That’s why keeping an eye (and ear) on your furnace or boiler is essential. Here are some signs of trouble. If you spot them, get in touch with us right away for a service call. This prompt attention could prevent a costly breakdown.
Strange noises. These can be an indicator that something is going wrong in your heating system. Problematic noises for a furnace include grinding, scraping, popping, squealing, thumping, and rumbling. For boilers, troubling noises are banging, whistling, rumbling, and gurgling.
Frequent cycling on and off. This could be cause by incorrect thermostat settings, a clogged air filter, or something else.
Water around your boiler. If you see water on the floor around your boiler, or leaks and drips from the pipes, these are signs of potentially serious problems. Causes include corroded pipes, a worn seal, aging and failing parts, or the pressure valve being set too high.
