Heating Systems: Get the Facts

Home Improvement
Like air conditioning furnaces, boilers, and heating systems need proper and regular maintenance to keep them working at an optimal level. While conversations among homeowners in Opelika tend to focus on air conditioner repairs, managing your heating system is also important, especially for those cold January nights. If your heating system is not working properly, you have several options.

• If your furnace, boiler, or heating system is more than 20 years old, you should replace it with a high efficiency model. Older furnaces in particular are much less efficient than new models (about twenty percent less efficient). While expensive to replace, you will see big savings in your monthly heating bill.

• If your heating system is between ten and twenty years old, you should have your system evaluated by a professional Opelika heating and air technician. While he or she may recommend replacing your unit or system, there may be other, more cost effective methods to increase energy efficiency. These may include improving and adding insulation, insulating and sealing leaky ductwork and a comprehensive tune up and cleaning of the entire system.

• For systems less than ten years old, you will want to see what is and isn’t covered by your warranty. Generally, these younger systems can be repaired at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.

If you opt for a tune up and cleaning, your technician will clean and replace all your filters and clean the registers. Like in your air conditioning, clean filters allow the system to run efficiently, increasing output and lowering your energy costs. As part of ongoing maintenance, you will want to keep your baseboards and radiators clear and dust free. Make sure furniture, carpets, or drapes do not block them. This diminishes the airflow.

Your heating and air professional can inform you of the prescribed maintenance plan for your particular unit or system. There will be specific instructions about water levels, removing sediment from steam heat systems and keeping vents clean and free of debris and dust.

Regular tune-ups are important. Oil fired systems should be tuned up annually, and gas system should be cleaned and maintained every two years. Regular cleaning and prescribed maintenance will not only increase the life of your heating system, it will reduce the costs associated with repairs and breakdowns and limit the emission of pollutants like smoke and carbon monoxide.

As with a cooling system, check your ductwork and make sure they are sealed air tight. It is not uncommon for ducts to leak between 15-20% of your heat. Airtight ducts can reduce your heating costs by twenty percent.

Your heating system is a large and expensive investment. A trained heating and air technician can help you decide if repairing or replacing your furnace, boiler, or steam heat system is right for your home. Creating and implementing a maintenance plan, and scheduling an annual “checkup” are two more ways to cut down on heating costs and increase your home’s energy efficiency. The heating and cooling experts in Opelika are ready and available to offer you great advice and counsel.
