Heating Maintenance in Sanford

Keeping Your Heating System Running at Maximum Efficiency

When most people think about their heating system, they think about it working in the cold winter months. While this is true, your heating system also works to keep your home cool during the hot summer months.

If your heater is not working at maximum efficiency, your air conditioner will have to work harder to keep your home cool. This can lead to your air conditioner breaking down, which will leave you without air conditioning during the hottest days of summer. This is why our team is ready to help with heating maintenance services in Sanford and surrounding areas.

Schedule your heating maintenance today by calling (407) 315-2006 or contacting us online.

What are Signs Your Heating System Needs Maintenance?

If you live in Florida, you know how hot it can get. When you think about your heating system, you probably think about it working in the winter. 

However, your heating system is also working when it is extremely hot outside. If you notice your heating system is not working as efficiently as it used to, it may be time to schedule a maintenance appointment.

Common signs your heating system needs maintenance include:

  • Your heater is making strange noises
  • Your heating bills have gone up
  • Your heater takes longer to heat your home
  • Your heater is constantly turning on and off
  • Your heater is constantly turning on and off
  • Your heater is leaking
  • Your heater is making strange noises

Why Should You Have Your Heating System Serviced?

In addition to keeping your air conditioner running at maximum efficiency, having your heating system serviced can help you avoid expensive repairs.

When you notice your heating system is making strange noises, smells funny, or is leaking, it is best to schedule an appointment for repairs as soon as possible. Having your heating system repaired early will help prevent expensive repairs in the future.

How Often Do You Need Heater Maintenance?

The frequency of heating maintenance depends on the type of heating system you have and its age. In general, it's recommended to have routine maintenance performed on your heating system at least once a year. 

Here are some guidelines for different types of heating systems:

  • Furnaces: Furnaces, whether gas or oil, should be inspected and maintained annually. This includes checking and cleaning the burners, inspecting the heat exchanger, and ensuring the system is operating efficiently.
  • Boilers: Boiler systems, which heat water to provide either steam or hot water for heating, also benefit from annual maintenance. This may involve cleaning the system, checking for leaks, and ensuring the various components are functioning properly.
  • Heat Pumps: Heat pumps, which provide both heating and cooling, should be inspected annually. This includes checking the refrigerant levels, cleaning the coils, and inspecting the various components.
  • Ductless Mini-Split Systems: If you have a ductless mini-split heating system, it's a good idea to have it inspected annually. This includes cleaning or replacing filters, checking refrigerant levels, and inspecting the overall system.

While annual maintenance is a good rule of thumb, there are some tasks you can perform more frequently on your own. For example, regularly changing or cleaning air filters can help maintain the efficiency of your heating system.

It's crucial to note that if you notice any unusual sounds, smells, or a decrease in heating performance, you should address the issue promptly, regardless of the maintenance schedule. Regular maintenance can help prevent problems, improve energy efficiency, and extend the lifespan of your heating system.
