Believe it or not, there’s a simple way to avoid these, and it costs way less than you may have ever imagined. Professional maintenance administered by a Carlsbad heating expert not only prevents serious breakdowns but also prolongs the life of your heater and helps you save money on utility bills!

Do you really need to maintain your heating system? We get this question a lot from skeptical customers, but there’s a good way of looking at it: Would you skip an oil change on your car? Would you skip your annual checkup with your doctor? In much the same way, a professional maintenance service keeps your furnace running happily, smoothly, and efficiently.

The benefits include:

  • Increased energy efficiency – A heater that works better produces more heat, so your home gets warm faster. That saves energy and lowers your utility bills!
  • Increased longevity – Do you want to avoid replacing your heater for as long as possible? A well-maintained heater can last several years longer than one that doesn’t receive professional attention.
  • Reduced breakdowns – Do you want peace of mind knowing your system won’t break down when you need it the most? Maintenance helps prevent these breakdowns, dropping the chances of one happening as low as possible.
  • Warranty adherence – Did you recently replace your heater? Is it still under warranty? You may be required to have your system maintained once a year in order to keep your warranty active and stay protected from breakdowns for as long as possible.

Your heating system is a critical appliance in your home. You depend on it for your comfort and your safety. That is why you should always leave maintenance to a trained professional.

A NATE-certified HVAC specialist can properly service your furnace and ensure that each required task is completed safely and efficiently.

At Sherlock, Plumbing, Heating & Air, our certified HVAC specialists perform a wide range of furnace maintenance tasks. These include the following tasks and more:

  • Vacuuming and wiping don the combustion chamber
  • Vacuuming both the burner and blower cavities
  • Changing your furnace filter
  • Cleaning the pilot of dust and debris
  • Inspecting and sealing ductwork
  • Inspecting and testing all gas and electrical connections
  • Examining the heat exchanger for damage
  • Removing blockages from vents and air intakes
  • Lubricating bearings, motors, and other moving components as necessary

Is your furnace due for maintenance? Contact the NATE-certified HVAC technicians at Sherlock Plumbing, Heating, & Air to schedule a service appointment.

Can I do my own furnace maintenance?

While it is possible to check or troubleshoot your own furnace, it is best to trust the HVAC professionals with tune-ups. Licensed professionals are more likely to catch heating issues before they become a more serious problem.

How often does my heating system need maintenance?

We recommend maintaining your furnace annually before the heating season. If you have a heat pump or ductless mini-split, it is best to schedule service twice annually, when spring arrives and again in the fall.

Regular maintenance includes a thorough examination and cleaning of the parts that commonly malfunction.

What time of year is best to schedule a tune-up?

Our HVAC team recommends scheduling heating tune-ups before the colder weather hits — typically around August or September.

Will ignoring maintenance void warranty coverage?

In most cases, ignoring regular maintenance can void your manufacturer warranty coverage. This is why we strongly recommend homeowners review the warranty requirements for their system and adjust their maintenance schedule to ensure compliance.

We are happy to confirm the services we have performed on your system and the dates we performed them.

What is a “Manual J” calculation?

A Manual J calculation comprehensively evaluates your home’s insulation, windows, window facing, age of construction, and more. When completed, the calculation gives you a highly accurate estimate of the furnace size you need for your home.

The more accurate the estimate, the less likely your furnace will suffer unnecessary wear and tear. With annual maintenance, a properly sized system helps ensure a longer life span and greater efficiency.
