KEEP YOUR HEATING SYSTEM FIT

Both new and old forced warm air systems require some attention to help keep them running smoothly and efficiently during the season. Even though you may have a comparatively new system, a regular check and upkeep is vital. With the sensitiveness and complication of modern controls, even little changes in a setting can have a serious baleful effect on the function and life of a unit.

Check the filter at least monthly in the heating ( and cooling ) season.
Confirm all heat supply dampers on room registers are in the open position and not blocked by furniture or drapes. Permanent, cleanable filters should be cleaned often ; expendable type filters should get replaced when dirty.
Consider a yearly service contract with a localized utility or service company, especially if your system is fueled by an oil burner. A qualified service engineer will clean the burners and the heating surfaces ; check for back drafting ( which can make a carbon monoxide danger ), check for balanced air distribution ; check safety controls ; and lubricate motors and fan if required.
