Let Beaufort Air Maintain Your Heating System
This winter, don’t get left in the cold with a broken-down heating system. Keep your home warm through the colder winter months by keeping your HVAC equipment in good working order.
Avoid the Seasonal Rush with Regular Maintenance.
Hilton Head HVAC contractors get flooded with requests for heating and air repair and maintenance when the weather changes drastically in the summer and winter. Ideally, scheduling pre-season check-ups is the way to go to ensure your heating and air equipment is working well and ready for the changing temperatures.
No Matter the Season, Beaufort Air Conditioning Is Ready to Serve You.
Your comfort and safety is our priority. Whether you missed your pre-season check-up or your previously functional equipment has suddenly developed a problem, Beaufort Air Conditioning is equipped to handle any heating and air conditioning needs.
Not only is our HVAC service team happy to perform regularly scheduled maintenance and tune-ups, but they will also respond to emergency calls to repair or replace any equipment on short notice. Whether your heating system runs on natural gas, oil, or electric, our experienced service technicians will be familiar with your unit and equipped to address the problem.
Heating System Maintenance Protects the Health of Your Family.
Did you know that an improperly functioning heating system doesn’t only endanger your comfort – it can endanger your health. Heating service isn’t just about maintaining efficiency: it’s about protecting yourself, your family, and your home.
Damaged and inefficient gas or oil heating connections can lead to health problems and even pose a deadly fire hazard. A neglected furnace can emit carbon monoxide, resulting in poisoning and death. Allergies, viral infections, and respiratory illnesses can also be caused by neglected heating and air systems.
Protect your home and your family from these threats by keeping your HVAC unit clean and in top shape.
Paying for Maintenance Pays for Itself!
Dirty burners and cracked heat exchangers cause improper and inefficient operations, increasing the running time of your heating system. This increased running time is reflected in your energy bill, and shortens the lifespan of your system.
When you spend the money up front to maintain and repair your heating system, you save by avoiding high energy bills and preventing the need for costly replacements by extending the life of your system. Plus, your home will stay comfortable more readily!
Ensure Your Home is Safe and Efficient Through Proper Heating System Maintenance.
With regularly scheduled maintenance, your Hilton Head heating and air specialists will be able to diagnose a problem with your heating system before you ever notice it. While there are many parts of your system which require a professional for full care, there are also things you can do to keep your home safe and warm this winter.
Your Hilton Head HVAC Specialist Will Give Your Heating System a Tune-Up.
For your regular heating maintenance check-up, a specialist will check all connections for proper fit, ensure all parts are clean, and check for any broken parts or inefficiencies.
Inspect and/or repair gas or oil connections.
Improperly fitted connections can result in dangerous leaks and/or poor flow.
Measure and adjust gas or oil pressure.
An improperly calibrated system creates uneven pressure, fails to efficiently heat your home, and creates risk.
Clean and inspect burner and heat exchanger.
Dirty and/or broken burners and heat exchangers prevent your system from running well and are a potential fire hazard.
Check and/or repair electrical connections.
Damaged electrical connections like exposed or worn wire, can be the cause of accidental fire.
Other Maintenance Check Items Can Include:
- Monitoring thermostat settings to increase system efficiency
- Measuring voltage and current of motors to prevent safety concerns
- lubricating moving parts like fans to prevent inefficiency due to friction
- Inspecting the condensate drain to prevent plugs and water damage
You Can Help Maintain Your Heating System!
Don’t forget there are things you can do on your own to take care of your heating and air systems in between check-ups.
Change Air Filters.
Starting with a clean filter allows your system to remove pollutants from the air more easily, improving the air quality in your home and allowing easier airflow through the system, improving efficiency.
Clear Out Clutter.
If you have furniture or other items stored in the area around your furnace or heat pump, this can cause reduced airflow to the unit. Your system will have to run harder to maintain proper airflow, thus using more energy and costing more – plus making it more difficult for your heater to keep your home at a maintained comfortable temperature.
The same goes for your vents and air returns. Make sure air can flow properly through your home by removing furniture or rugs blocking vents.
Check Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
As mentioned previously, an improperly functioning heating system can be a source of dangerous carbon monoxide. While your HVAC professional will check your system to prevent this, you should always take the precaution of keeping your carbon monoxide detectors in place. Ensure any detectors are outfitted with fresh batteries and tested regularly to make sure they work properly.
Reprogram Your Thermostat.
Your thermostat will need to be reset to a winter schedule to keep your home or office comfortable during the colder outdoor temperatures. Remember that keeping your thermostat set lower during the evening when you’re sleeping or during times you’re away from home can help you save on heating costs significantly. Each degree over 68°F can raise your energy needed by up to 3 percent!
Stay Warm and Safe: Sign Up for A Maintenance Plan.
You can get a one-time maintenance visit, but you can also invest peace of mind with an annual maintenance plan. When you sign up for a maintenance plan, an HVAC specialist will be sent to your home on a regularly scheduled year-to-year basis to monitor the conditions of your heating system and air conditioning, saving you money and protecting your health and comfort.
If You Notice These Symptoms, Call for Service ASAP!
Preventative maintenance is important, but unexpected HVAC emergencies can arise at any time. Call your local Hilton Head HVAC specialist as soon as possible if you notice any of the following symptoms.
These can all be signs of a heating system failure:
- Suddenly inflated energy bills
- The smell of natural gas
- Unusual dust or soot accumulation
- New or excessive noise coming from your unit
- Cold air coming from vents
Your Hilton Head HVAC technician will pinpoint the source of your problem, make a diagnosis, and offer an effective and affordable solution. Be sure to call as soon as you notice a problem to limit risk and minimize costs.
