Fall Furnace Maintenance Trims Heating Bills - Worcester, Boston

24 Oct 2013

Fall is here and the colder weather is on the way. If you want to cut down on your heating bills this winter, put heating system maintenance on your list of essential fall chores. Make your HVAC system work harder and smarter for you.

Annual heating system tune-ups are recommended to clear a year’s worth of dust and gunk from your furnace or boiler. During your heating system regular maintenance call, plumbers will check or replace air filters, oil filters, and nozzles; clean the heat exchanger; determine if the chimney needs to be professionally cleaned; adjust the burner; and test combustion safety. This maintenance is a good investment that can shave 3-8% off your heating bill and help you avoid costly crises in the dead of winter. Your furnace needs to keep you warm in the winter, Greater Boston Plumbing will keep your furnace running safely and efficiently. Our expert technicians repair, service and maintain gas furnaces of any make, model or brand.

It takes more than just a boiler or furnace to heat your home effectively, though.  The whole system includes pipes or ducts that distribute heat throughout your home; thermostats that control when the burner fires; and whole-house insulation that provides the context and keeps the heat where you want it. The fall is the perfect time to determine where your house is wasting energy. Plan improvements that help your whole house – not just your heating system – function at a higher level.

In fact, it’s not unusual for whole-house air sealing and insulation upgrades to cut heating and cooling costs by 25-50%. Even better, the improvements that dramatically reduce energy costs also make homes more comfortable year-round, treat basement moisture problems, and reduce the likelihood of ice dams.

Need a new, more efficient heating system, we can help with that too. Contact Greater Boston Plumbing and Heating.
