Temperatures have become mild here in Lincoln, NE, football and other fall sports have returned. This can only mean… You guessed it, heating season is on it’s way. Here at Bryant we’ve been getting calls for heating checks and begun performing the heating portion of our Energy Savings Plan (ESP). One out of the blue cool week and it’s like mother nature sent out an email saying fall and consistently cooler temps are coming soon, get prepared.
Unlike cooling season there really isn’t really a limitation of the work that can be done depending on outdoor temps. Your heating can be fully checked out and heat change provided by your heating unit can be tested. With cooling checks the outdoors temperatures need to reach a certain temp to ensure the efficiency of the system for spring and summer is accurately represented.
Since our temps are becoming mild and many homeowners are taking advantage of the prime weather by opening windows and testing out the furnace or heat pump’s heating setting isn’t a nuisance. Having this service performed earlier in the year can be done, however is less common due to the fact that the home will be warmed by the heating system being run during the check.
Why is it good to have the furnace checked? We encourage homeowners to have their furnace checked by a trained professional. By having this seasonal maintenance performed you will be aware of the state of your heating system. Bryant technicians check to ensure that the wiring and electrical components aren’t showing signs of failure. They thoroughly check the heating components and clean the burners so you can be confident that your home and family is safe from carbon monoxide (CO) gases.
During the furnace maintenance our technicians clean the furnace cabinet as well as check and replace the furnace filter if needed. If you have a humidifier it’s a good idea to have it’s operation inspected. We suggest changing the water panel at the beginning of fall. This way you are sure you have a clean panel for your heating season use.
If you would like to have your furnace or heat pump inspected for proper heating operation call Bryant Air Conditioning, Heating, Electrical & Plumbing or complete their contact to request someone contact you to schedule a furnace check.
