Whether you have a boiler, furnace or heat pump, tuning up your heating system is essential to achieving energy-efficient climate control. It’s also cost-effective, helping you prevent unnecessary repairs and avoid a costly system replacement. At Valley Heating & Air Conditioning, we provide comprehensive heating tune-up services for all types of heating systems.
Heating Tune-Up for Heat Pumps
A heat pump needs to move air freely and efficiently transfer heat to deliver optimal performance. We ensure healthy airflow and heat transfer by inspecting the air filter, cleaning the coils and fins and checking the refrigerant. If necessary, we replace the air filter, find any refrigerant leaks and recharge the system to the appropriate level. We also check and lubricate moving components, inspect and adjust belts and test the thermostat. Finally, we test your system and make any final adjustments to ensure smooth operation.
In addition to efficiency and reliability concerns, furnace maintenance is also imperative to preventing carbon monoxide poisoning. For that reason, our furnace tune-ups include a detailed inspection of the vent system, heat exchanger and combustion chamber. We also test for carbon monoxide and check and adjust the fuel supply and ignition systems as necessary. Additionally, we clean and lubricate the blower, adjust the system controls and perform a combustion efficiency test.
Boiler maintenance is largely similar to furnace maintenance, but a boiler tune-up also involves a few unique tasks. Since they utilize water, boilers are prone to issues with both corrosion and sediment buildup. Our tune-ups include a full inspection of your boiler tank and heat exchanger for any signs of corrosion. We also inspect the expansion valve, low water cut-off, circulator pump, water feed valve, and backflow preventer. We also check for sediment accumulation and perform cleanings when needed.
