What Does an HVAC Service Include?
An HVAC system provides heating and cooling to residential houses and commercial buildings. If you haven’t used your HVAC systems in a while, it might be time to schedule a service call with one of our licensed service technicians. With an HVAC service, you’ll expect both a boiler and furnace inspection with a performance checklist, which we refer to as the 21-point inspection.
For a boiler inspection the checklist will include:
- Inspecting leaks
- Turning all thermostats up
- Testing pressure relief
- Pulling clean and inspect burners
- Checking gas and flame signal
- Cleaning cabinet & combustion areas
- And more!
For a furnace inspection the checklist will include:
- Testing burners, limits, and blower
- Testing hot surface igniter
- Clean pilot assembly, pilot orifice, and sensor
- Vacuuming combustion chamber
- Check filter condition and combustion motor
- And more!
Why Is it Important to Regularly Service Your Furnace and Boiler?
It’s extremely beneficial to regularly service your furnace and boiler to ensure efficiency. Moore Heating’s licensed technicians do everything they can do to limit wear and tear on your furnaces and boilers.
Regular Service on Your Furnace and Boiler Save You Money
Yes, you heard that right! By checking up on your furnaces and boilers often, you prevent big, damaging bills. Regular furnace and boiler maintenance keep repair costs down by catching problems early on before they become even worse. If you haven’t scheduled a technician to inspect and perform services on your furnace or boiler, this could easily result in significant damage and malfunction if left unintended for long periods of time.
Servicing Your Furnace and Boiler Saves Lives
According to the CDC, during 2010–2015, a total of 2,244 deaths resulted from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning, with the highest number of deaths each year occurring in winter months. In 2015, a total of 393 deaths resulting from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning occurred, with 36% of the deaths occurring in December, January, or February. Getting your furnace or boiler inspected regularly is crucial! If you need furnace or boiler services, please contact Moore Heating.
It’s Simply the Law
By law, if you are a landlord, you are required to have annual gas safety inspections on all gas appliances. If something were to happen to your tenants, you would be held responsible as the landlord, so it is super important to pay attention to any upcoming service checkups or inspections on your furnace or boiler.
