Furnace troubles are the result of lack of maintenance

Last winter, I began having some troubles with the operation of my heater.

  • I first noticed that the dwelling felt a bit frigid on especially frigid days & days.

I turned up the thermostat by several degrees & still wasn’t satisfied with the level of comfort. Although the boiler seemed to be running just about non-stop, it wasn’t supplying enough overheated air to create a consistent & ideal temperature. Shortly after that, the operational noise was swiftly a bit louder & there was a significant amount of dust circulating in the air. When my whole family started sneezing, coughing & complaining of headaches, I knew it was time to take action. I stressed repairs from a local Heating, Ventilation and A/C dealer. The serviceman performed a thorough diagnostic testing & inspection of the boiler & determined that the issues were all the result of debris buildup within the inner toilings. He asked when I’d last had the boiler service. I was a little embarrassed to divulge that I’d never invested in professional maintenance… Other than replacing the air filter every month, I’d totally ignored the upkeep of the heating system. Fortunately, a thorough cleaning & adjustment of all components restored proper functionality. I have now enrolled in a maintenance plan that includes a tune-up for the boiler in the fall & for the air conditioner in the Springtime. The plan doesn’t cost all that much & is effective at protecting the reliability, efficiency & longevity of the systems. The serviceman troubleshoots for wear & tear & replaces any worn or broken parts. He tightens electrical affixions, lubricates moving parts, tests the HVAC duct, checks the HVAC duct & makes sure everything is toiling as it should.
