Why Your Heating System Needs a Tune-Up

There’s no doubt that New Jersey has cold winters. It’s not just the state’s position on the 40th parallel, placing it on a similar latitude with Indiana, Colorado, and Northern California. With water surrounding New Jersey on three sides, it is vulnerable to freezing air from the north and higher precipitation from the south. February tends to be quite chilly, with an average high of 47 degrees Fahrenheit and a low of 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

With temperatures like this, it’s clear that you need a functioning heating system in New Jersey. Cold air and blowing snow underscore the importance of a furnace in good working order. Having a furnace that works is an investment in your comfort and safety. When the temperatures drop, you need to maintain the interior temperature to avoid risking your health and to keep your home’s systems intact. To achieve these goals, you’ll need heating maintenance services. An annual tune-up for your furnace or boiler helps ensure that your system is ready for an entire season of cold and precipitation and maintains energy efficiency. It also minimizes the likelihood of problems, such as a sudden breakdown or carbon monoxide poisoning.

When to Schedule a Heating System Tune-Up

Scheduling a heating tune-up service is the best way to confirm that your furnace or boiler is equipped to handle the season. You should plan to request one each year in the early fall. If you’re a little behind schedule, it’s not uncommon to notice that your heating system isn’t working as it should. Here are a few signs you can watch for so that you know when to call for boiler maintenance service:

  • A sudden increase in energy usage: A furnace or boiler that is starting to fail will probably show it through a loss in efficiency. If your bill suddenly jumps, and you can’t match it to a rapid change in outside temperature, you may have a problem.
  • Inconsistent heating: Furnaces and boilers are supposed to provide consistent heating throughout the home. If you have rooms that are too warm and rooms that are much colder, you might need to check your HVAC equipment and ductwork.
  • Indoor air quality problems: Furnaces filter debris and contaminants from your indoor air, but they can get clogged. Plan to replace your furnace filters at least a few times a year to keep your home cleaner and improve your indoor air quality.
  • Strange odors: Furnaces and boilers should not produce odors. If you smell burning or rotten eggs, you need to call our furnace maintenance company for prompt attention.
  • Unusual noises: You’ll notice a little sound while your heating system is running. Banging, scratching or screeching are not normal, and require investigation.

You deserve to have a heating system that works as you expect, especially during the cold winter months in New Jersey. Regular maintenance can make a significant difference in your heating system’s output and efficiency. For boiler maintenance service and the heating maintenance NJ residents trust, contact A.J.
