Heating System Inspections and Maintenance
Is your heating system up to the task? Take advantage of the John Moore 30-point heating and furnace inspection and tune-up to assure your system is in optimal condition.
As a Houstonian you surely know that, for the majority of the year, your heater will go unused. So when it does come time to eventually turn it on during those cooler months, you might notice that your heater is making loud noises; that when cranking it up to 80 degrees, you still feel nothing; or that if it does come on, one area of the house gets hot and other areas don't. If your heating system seems a little rusty and you suspect that your heater is not running properly, it may be time to call John Moore Services in Houston, TX for an inspection. Here at John Moore, our heating technicians have the tools and expertise to determine what is (or isn’t) going on with your home’s heating system, and with our 30-point inspection process, we cover all bases.
If your furnace, electric air handler, or heat pump system is emanating an odd smell when you first turn it on for the season, it may simply be burning dust, although smells that persist longer than an hour could point to more serious issues like gas leaks in furnaces or burning components in electrical systems. If you have a gas-powered furnace and smell gas or suspect a leak, turn your system off immediately, and call an HVAC technician. A gas leak could put you, your home, and your family in danger. The technicians at John Moore will inspect and diagnose your system and will make any and all needed maintenance or repair recommendations.
And don’t forget about annual maintenance inspections! Just like your car, your heating system is a complex, expensive mechanism, so whether your central heating system runs off a furnace, an air handler, or a heat pump, regular maintenance is the trick to extending the life of your heater and preventing minor problems from escalating into costly repairs. And if a safety switch goes faulty while your system is in down time, it’s better to keep your family safe than sorry by scheduling and annual heater inspection with John Moore around September or October, before its time to start using your heater.
With the John Moore 30-Point Inspection and Maintenance Tune-Up, we check for:
- Burn marks on side of furnace
- Clearance from combustible materials
- A strong flame on pilot light
