Forced Air Heating
Forced air heating is the most common heating system installed in Randolph. Popular for new and old homes alike, it works by distributing air from the furnace through ductwork and vents in the home to evenly heat an entire building.
Believe it or not, one of the most common causes of furnace wear and tear is a lack of maintenance. At Lamco Plumbing and Heating Inc. we recommend to all of our Randolph clients various ways in which they can help to extend the life of their furnace. But if it comes down to needing furnace repairs, we’re ready and able!
If your furnace is not heating your home, you notice strange noises or smells, a blower that is constantly running, a malfunctioning thermostat or ignition and pilot problems then call us immediately. These are all common issues which can be dealt with quickly and save you money down the line.
The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 years though with proper maintenance you can hope for 20. With such a long lifespan, homeowners who move often may never need to replace a furnace. But if you’re not as lucky, what can you expect when it comes time for furnace replacement?
First of all, how do you know when it’s time for your furnace to go if it hasn’t completely died? Strange sounds and irregular heating are two of the signs. And if you know the age of your furnace and it’s coming up on that 15-year mark it’s a good plan to give us a call to provide you with an inspection.
Furnaces that are left to wind down to nothing on their own can put you at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Do Heating Systems Really Need Regular Maintenance?
The short and simple answer to this question is yes. If you fail to take proper care of your home’s heating system, then you can be sure that problems will follow suit. Like anything in life, your home’s heating system needs regular maintenance and it is very important that you don’t take any shortcuts in this respect. The simple fact of the matter is that if you want your home to be warm and cozy when winter hits, then you need to make sure that your heating system receives all the care and attention it needs. At Lamco Plumbing & Heating Inc., we take our heating system maintenance work very seriously and never take any shortcuts in the pursuit of perfection for you and your family. Our skilled team of specialists are trained and certified at what they do and can detect and repair small heater problems before they have the opportunity to turn into bigger issues. So, if you want to make sure that your home’s heating system is as durable and effective as possible, you really need to get in touch with us today.
How Often Should I Have My Heater Maintained?
The answer to this question is difficult to say with any degree of certainty. Factors like the age, model-type and depreciation all need to be taken into consideration in this respect. However, that being said, we generally recommend that our residential clients have their home’s heating system maintained about twice a year: once before summer begins and once right before the cold winter snap hits. By doing this, you can be guaranteed that your home’s heat will be constant throughout the year.
When Should I Call the Professionals?
The obvious answer to this question is when your home’s heating system stops working. However, the fact of the matter is that this may not always be obvious. So, if you want to make sure that you know when a problem is serious and when it isn’t, you need to pay attention to the following list of signs of a damaged heater:
- - Higher utility costs are one of the first and most obvious signs that your home’s heater isn’t operating to an optimal level. So, if you have noticed a spike in your utility bills in recent weeks or months, then it is likely that there is a leak or waste coming from some part of your home’s heating system that will need to be fixed.
- - The age of your home’s heating system is one of the most important factors when it comes to repair work. To put it simply, the older your heating system is, the more likely it is that it will break down and need repair. Conversely, the newer it is, the less likely that the damage is very serious.
- - Strange noises coming from your home’s heating system are never a good thing and need to be investigated and repaired quickly.
