Inspect and Service Your Heating System

Schedule a Professional Inspection

Before the cold weather sets in, it's wise to schedule a professional inspection of your heating system. Deluxe Plumbing & Heating offers comprehensive inspection services to identify any issues that could affect the efficiency of your system during the winter months. Know that there is a difference with a visual inspection and a detailed inspection. Deluxe will not just look at your system, but take a detailed look inside the system by checking parts and other components.

Replace Filters

Clean filters are essential for the smooth operation of your heating system. Dirty or clogged filters can reduce airflow, making your system work harder and less efficiently. Replace filters according to the manufacturer's recommendations or more frequently if needed.

Seal Leaks and Insulate

Check for Drafts

Drafts can let cold air in and warm air out, causing your heating system to work overtime. Inspect doors and windows for drafts and seal them with weatherstripping or caulking. Don't forget to check around pipes, vents, and electrical outlets as well.

Insulate Your Home

Proper insulation can significantly improve the efficiency of your heating system. Check your attic, walls, and basement for insulation gaps. If needed, add insulation to these areas to keep the heat inside and the cold out.

Test Your Thermostat

Calibrate and Upgrade

A malfunctioning thermostat can lead to uneven heating and higher energy bills. Test your thermostat to ensure it's accurately reading the temperature. If it's outdated or not functioning correctly, consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat for better control and energy savings.
