Heating System Preventative Maintenance in Vestavia Hills & Hoover

blogheatingIn some parts of the country, the first thing people think of when fall rolls around is the start of another cold weather season.

Obviously those folks don’t have ‘Bama or Auburn football (along with our many other college and high school teams) to help keep them warm with the sheer week-to-week excitement of it all. And yet as lucky as we are here in Alabama, college football can’t repair a problem heating system.

That’s why, in between all the hoopla and game day tailgating, it’s a good idea to carve out a minute or two to schedule pre-season preventative maintenance to help keep your heating system in top working order.

Here at Eagle Service Company, we perform multi-step cleanings and inspections that include these vital steps:

  1. Visually inspect capacitors for leakage and rust
  2. Inspect blower wheel
  3. Check and calibrate thermostat as required
  4. Inspect burner ignition system and assembly
  5. Inspect gas burners
  6. Check temperature rise across heat exchanger for overheating
  7. Inspect heat exchanger for soot, corrosion, cracks and deformities
  8. Inspect gas valve for corrosion, leaks, restriction of gas flow and abnormal noise
  9. Inspect entire system for loose or worn parts and abnormal vibrations
  10. Test and adjust the unit for peak operating efficiency

And that’s just part of the process, one that focuses not just on operating efficiency, but your family’s well-being and safety, as well.

So in between checking the latest scores and planning your next college football Saturday, why not give us a call and schedule something no less important: annual preventative maintenance for your heating system, performed by the home heating pros at Eagle Service Company.
