|Our Somerset Boiler Maintenance Specialists ask these simple questions.
When was the last time you changed or cleaned your furnace filter? Failing to replace or clean the filter regularly can be costly!
Dust and dirt can work their way into the blower and coil assemblies, reducing the furnace's operating efficiency and eventually causing damage to the motor. Heating professionals say simple dust and dirt are the cause of almost half of their service calls; most manufacturers recommend changing or cleaning filters at least every other month (once a month is best).
Somerset Annual Boiler Check Up
Get an Annual Service Checkup
An annual service checkup by a heating professional is usually a good idea. The technician will check the flues and temperature settings, examine the heat exchanger for cracks, and check the safety mechanisms on natural gas units. A £30-80 annual tune-up can reduce your heating unit's operating cost by three to four percent. Keep in mind, that just like your car, your heating system needs regular care and maintenance. And just like having a good mechanic for your car, you should have a good technician for your heating system.
