HVAC maintenance in Cincinnati is a service that every home with a furnace needs. Maintenance for air conditioning is also essential, but since winter is upon us (despite it feeling unseasonably warm at times) this article will focus on the heating system. A scheduled maintenance program will help to ensure that your heating system will work when you need it the most. Often, Pinnacle Air Solutions’ technicians can identify problems that can be easily corrected, and they can identify serious problems that can be fixed before they cause the furnace to fail. Our HVAC maintenance services can identify carbon monoxide leaks, or the potential for carbon monoxide leaks.
Our maintenance program may include the inspection of gas connections, gas pressure, the heat exchanger and burner combustion. Improper connections can be a fire hazard and contribute to health problems for the occupants. A cracked heat exchanger or a dirty burner will result in poor efficiency and even lead to safety issues. While these are critical components, there are other checks that are important to make when thinking about HVAC maintenance in Cincinnati.
Here are some important elements of your HVAC system that may be checking during an inspection, and why they are important:
>Moving Parts: All moving parts should be lubricated to prevent friction in the motor. This will slightly reduce the amount of electricity used by the motor and it will prolong the life of the motor.
>Controls: All controls should be checked on occasion, including the high limit switch, the starting cycle and the burner shut off control.
>Electrical connections should be tightened since they can become loose and cause a failure in the system and shorten the life of components.
>Measure voltage and the current on the motor.
>Check the thermostat to ensure that it works as it was designed.
The goal of our maintenance program is to make sure your home has heat when the night gets cold, but it will also prolong the life of the system and make its operation safer. For more information about HVAC maintenance in Cincinnati, call us at 513.984.HEAT (4328), or use our contact form below.
