Heating systems come in all shapes and sizes, but winter only comes in one variety: cold. With a commitment to quality service, TLC Plumbing is here to help with some tips to make sure that your heating system is ready to keep you warm all winter long.

Preventative Maintenance

On that first cold day of winter, staying warm should be as easy as flipping a switch. But, without regular servicing of your heating unit, you may be in for a winter of unexpected and chilly heater hiccups. At TLC Plumbing, we can professionally service your heating system before winter starts. We perform maintenance on all types of heating systems, including:

      • Central Heat (Forced Air)
      • Radiant Heat
      • Boilers
      • Steam Radiant
      • Geothermal
      • Gas
      • Electric

Our technicians examine your entire heating system so we can identify any potential problems, such as:

      • Thermostat malfunctions
      • Dust and dirt buildup in the filter
      • Pilot light ignition
      • Blocked flues
      • Air flow

When we service your heater, we perform a thorough safety check and a carbon monoxide test to ensure that your home is not only warm this winter, but it is also safe.

Test Our Your Heat

By taking your heating system for a test drive before it gets too cold, you can be sure that you are ready for winter. To avoid overheating your home, try running it overnight when temperatures are a little cooler.

Clean Up Clutter

Out of use for more than a few months, it’s easy to let clutter and dust to build up around your heater. To prolong the life of your heating system, it’s important to keep these areas clean, even when your heater isn’t running. Debris like animal hair can clog the filter and build up around other important parts.

When in Doubt, Call a Professional

If you’re not sure if your heating system is ready for the winter months, it’s best to consult the friendly professionals at TLC Plumbing. We provide the dependable advice and service that gives you peace of mind all winter long. Contact us to learn how we can help your heater out.
