Heater Maintenance

Extend the life of your heater with a regular maintenance plan. Seasonal maintenance keeps your heating systems running efficiently throughout the year in Corpus Christi’s highest temperatures. On average, over 80% of heater repairs could have been avoided with proper maintenance. Without regular oil changes, your car won’t run efficiently. Well, the same goes for your furnace. Without proper maintenance, your heater can’t be expected to live as long or function properly.

Joining our maintenance program will ensure that your heater runs smoothly for years to come. A heater is a big investment. Take care of yours with professional maintenance from Precision Air.

What is included in heater maintenance?

At Precision Air we understand how frustrating it can be to have your heating system fail especially during times of extreme cold. That’s why our certified technicians complete a 16 point inspection of your commercial HVAC system to keep your system running effectively and efficiently.

  • Check burners

Why is regular furnace maintenance so important?

It only makes sense that regular preventative maintenance of your heating system is the optimal way to ensure proper operation and peak performance. Think of it in terms of how you maintain your car. Would you wait until your car breaks down to change the oil? The same should hold true for your heating system, it’s only logical to have an occasional ‘tune up’ for your heater.

A poorly maintained heating system could not only lead to inconvenient breakdowns but could cost you more in energy bills. If your heating system is not at peak performance, it may not be running at its optimal efficiency level.

Like all things in life, it is less expensive to prevent a problem from happening than fixing the problem once it occurs. A little prevention goes a long way! Be prepared for the cold this winter with a ‘Precision Air’ heater maintenance tune up today!

Signs you need a heater repair:
  • a sudden increase in your utility bills
  • excessive humidity or dust
  • a system that becomes unreliable or malfunctioning thermostat
  • and a noisy, inefficient heating system

To know for sure if your system is truly in need of being replaced, you’ll need an inspection by an HVAC professional at Precision Air.

Heating Tips to Lower Your Monthly Bills (How Do I Lower My Energy Bills?)

Your HVAC unit starts working overtime when the weather rolls in; however, without proper maintenance, it can cause serious increases in your monthly energy bills. By implementing these free or low-cost heating tips, you can significantly reduce the amount you’re paying to keep the winter weather out of your home.

1. Adjust Your Thermostat
Your initial reaction may be to crank up the thermostat if your home starts feeling cold. The higher the temperature, the more money you’ll be spending on heating costs. By lowering your thermostat just one degree, you can save up to 3% on your monthly bill. To save even more, choose different temperatures for days and nights (i.e. 69 degrees during the day and 60 degrees at night.) Programmable thermostats can help you save 10-20% on your monthly energy bills.

2. Keep Your Radiators and Vents Clean
If you remove any dust and/or obstructions like furniture from your vents and radiator, you’ll not only have healthier air to breathe, but you’ll also allow the air to circulate more freely and efficiently inside of your home.

3. Keep the Doors Inside Your Home Shut
By closing the doors to unused rooms or even shutting off the vents, you’ll eliminate wasted heat that can increase your monthly energy bills.

4. Change Your Air Filters Regularly
Switching out your air filters is one of your best options when it comes to simple heating maintenance. Fresh filters allow air to circulate more freely throughout your home, as does cleaning out your vents and radiators.
