How Often Should a Heating System Be Serviced?

Residential heating equipment should have preventative maintenance and cleaning at least once yearly. Taking care of it in the fall will give you peace of mind that your furnace is ready for winter, and you won’t be unpleasantly surprised with a breakdown when the weather is at its worst.

Commercial heating equipment may need service more often, depending on the size of the facility and the equipment’s age. Older units will need heating tune-ups more often than new ones.

How Often Should a Heating System Be Serviced?

Heating maintenance from Rays Heating and Cooling includes the following:

  • Cleaning the debris and old oil from all moving parts.
  • A thorough inspection of the furnace, or heat pump for any potential problems.
  • Advise you of any potential issues that need your attention.
  • Relubricate moving parts.
  • Test the unit to ensure it’s working properly.

What Happens if You Don’t Service Your Heater?

You can improve efficiency by getting regular tune-ups for your heater. The debris accumulating in the furnace, like dust, pollen, or pet dander, causes excess friction while the appliance operates. This makes your furnace work harder for the same heating output. The extra friction also causes parts to wear down faster, so you will need heater repairs more often.

Something that seems minor, like a clogged or dirty filter, worn bearing, or loose wire, can seriously affect your heater’s efficiency. When your furnace or heat pump works harder, your utility bills rise, too – you pay more each month for poorer-quality heating.

Without regular heating maintenance, minor problems with your unit can turn into more significant issues over time.

How Long Can You Go Without Cleaning Your Heater?

The general rule of thumb is to have your furnace cleaned at least once yearly. But there are some exceptions. You may need to have your heater cleaned more often if:

  • You have one or more shedding pets in your house – pet hair can clog the filter and get into the heating mechanism.
  • Someone in your home has severe allergies, asthma, or another respiratory disease.
  • You have an older home or furnace.
  • You live in a location with high pollen counts or excess dust in the air.

When you join Rays Heating and Cooling Comfort Club, we’ll complete an assessment of your home’s heating equipment and make recommendations for heating tune-ups and other services to keep it operating efficiently. Call us today – don’t delay!
