Furnace Tune-Up in Scottsdale, North Phoenix, Cave Creek and Surrounding Areas
Warranty contracts often state that the coverage will only apply if the unit is properly maintained. Homeowners can do some things like periodic cleaning and air filter replacement but other system requirements are better left to the pros. The rule of thumb is to have professional technicians come over at least once a year to conduct a comprehensive heating tune up. They are trained to inspect vital parts and correct any issues they might encounter.
Unclogging Your Heater Vents
Clogs are a common occurrence. Dirt can accumulate on the vents and other sections along air passages. These prevent proper circulation which makes it harder for the system to provide the warmth that it is being asked to produce. Indoor air quality also suffers because of the impurities that are floating around the room. These clogs must be cleaned out wherever they may be. The rest of the ducts should be vacuumed and wiped clean as well for good measure.
Sealing Leaks In Your Heating System
The technicians will also spend a good deal of time looking for leaks throughout the system. These are among the biggest culprits in the reduction of energy efficiency. They may be caused by corrosion or pests. Small holes tend to get bigger over time, letting more warm air escape instead of getting to their intended destination around the house. They must be found and sealed shut with the appropriate materials.
The wires may also get corroded or damaged. These can become safe hazards if ignored. They can also cause system failures. Technicians will check all of the wiring to test for continuity, state and performance. They can do rewiring if needed and tighten connections if they are getting loose. Make sure that you get a knowledgeable contractor for this job. Call the LJ Refrigeration Company for affordable and reliable heating tune up.
