Taking Care of Heating System Installation While You Don’t Need the Heat

by | Jul 7, 2014 | Air Cooling & Heating

With most of the country bracing for the sweltering temperatures ahead, heating systems are among the furthest issues from most people’s minds; however, this is actually the perfect time to give them the attention they need. Furnaces tend to pose problems once cooler weather returns whether due to sitting idle for several months or because issues cropping up over the previous winter went ignored. This can be prevented by taking care of the heating system when it is least needed.

Have an HVAC specialist inspect your heating system as soon as you switch over to air conditioning. The technician will analyze each component of the central unit, cleaning them as needed. Should any parts need to be repaired or replaced, this can be taken care of while you don’t need heat. If the duct work is clogged, it can be vacuumed out, which will help reduce the risk of fire and improve the system’s efficiency.

Your unit may be outdated, in which case the duct system probably is, as well. The onset of warmer weather is the perfect time to begin looking into a more reliable and efficient model. Your technician will be able to recommend appropriate models based on the size of your home and typical winter temperatures in your area and can handle the Heating System Installation once you choose the model you want.

Maybe you have an electric system, and you are considering converting to a different heat source. If you happen to live in an area where natural gas is available, you may benefit from the increased efficiency of gas heat. A gas burning furnace would also be quieter and require less maintenance. If this is not a viable option for you, an oil furnace may be more suitable. This type of system is said to produce more heat than electricity or gas, but you must have an oil storage tank placed on your property and fuel delivered at regular intervals.

Regardless of the type of unit you choose, a newer model is certain to be more efficient than one that is more than 10 years old. As long as your Heating System Installation is performed by a professional, you will more than likely save money on heating costs as well as maintenance when compared to your old furnace. Eco Air Conditioning is available for new system installation as well as maintenance on any type of existing system.
