The heating season will be here soon.
In Georgia we barely get out of the summer cooling season before we have to worry about our heating appliances in our homes and businesses. Before starting your heat up there are a few things to keep in mind:
- There are components to your heating systems that will need to be checked by a proffessional including hot surface ignitors, induced draft assemblies and pressure switches.
- Always make sure your filters are clean and that your return air vents are unobstructed.
- If your thermostat requires batteries, make sure you install new ones.
- If your heating equipment is gas, ensure that no debris or fuels have been stored in the area of the equipment.
While some of these items you can handle yourself, it is generally advisable to hire a professional HVAC company to perform maintenance on your systems.
