Heating Maintenance in Tacoma, WA

Your home’s heating system is an incredibly durable collection of ducts, pipes and machinery. But, without the proper maintenance, that system will soon show signs of wear and require repairs to remain operational. To avoid excessive repair costs and to keep your Tacoma, Washington area home nice and toasty throughout the winter months, it’s important to schedule annual maintenance for your entire home heating system.

                Heating System Maintenance Tip

Heating system maintenance in Tacoma should always start with the obvious, make sure your thermostats asking for heat. Also try to make sure that the unit has not been automatically shut off. If the air handler is having a hard time starting, or you are hearing a significant amount of noise, there could be an issue with the fan. If the fan is wobbling and making noises it could ruin your motor shaft, so be hesitant to push that. If all the obvious portions of your heating system have been checked please call Sound Heating for heating system maintenance.

During an inspection, our technicians will check your entire system, reviewing the integrity of your furnace, checking for leaks or buildup in your ductwork, and checking calibration in the thermostats to ensure everything is working as required.

Regular Maintenance Needs

Your home’s heating system requires clean ducts and properly set thermostats to ensure heat is evenly distributed throughout the house. Without regular maintenance, you run the very real risk of increased damage to your system and the need for substantial repairs, or even replacement.

Additionally, regular maintenance can help maintain the efficiency of a good heating system. Even older, lower AFUE furnaces are able to reduce overall energy use and maintain their effectiveness if you take the time to have them properly cleaned and service each year. There is likely wear on common parts that will need to be replaced, build–up of dirt in your ductwork, dust accumulation in thermostats, and a number of other environmental issues that can reduce the effectiveness of your heating system and possibly even lead to a breakdown in efficiency for that part.

Preventative Heater Maintenance

One of the reasons that regular maintenance is so important is that it will help to reduce the need for costly heating repairs. For example, a cracked seal replaced during regular maintenance could turn into a major leak or excess pressure being put on an aging furnace. That single cracked seal, if left untended for too long, could result in serious damage that might even require replacement of the furnace.

Imagine the money you will save by having someone come in once every year and check for any potential problems. Beyond reducing major repair costs, you will extend the lifespan of your furnace by multiple years. A system that is scheduled to last for 10–15 years might even last for as long as 20 years with the right annual care. And while operating, that system will provide more heat for less energy cost than if you ignored the potential problems that your system might have.
