What Is Preventative Heating Maintenance?

Almost all systems will need the basic heating system maintenance listed below performed, but more system specific systems require different assessments.

  • Thermostat – the thermostat is checked for proper operation.
  • Amperage – the amp draws of mechanical components are checked. High amp drain will not only increase your utility bills, it will also let you know that part is about to fail.
  • Airflow – an overall check is done of the airflow to ensure the system is receiving enough air and providing enough air.
  • Delta T – this is a common HVAC shorthand that you may have heard but no one explained. Delta is a mathematical term that denotes difference and T is an abbreviation for Temperature. Delta T simply means the difference in temperature. This difference can be measured in the difference between the temperature of air entering your furnace on the return side and the temperature of the air leaving your system on the supply side. Delta T can also be used to denote the difference in the temperature outside versus the temperature inside. These numbers can help determine how efficiently the system is operating and help identify potential issues.
  • Drains – all drains are blown out. It is possible over time for sludge to fill up in the drains leaving your system. If the drain lines are not cleaned regularly, they can trip the overflow safety or worse, if you don’t have a safety can cause a flood resulting in real property damage.
  • Filters – all filters are checked to ensure they are properly installed and filtering the air without blocking air flow. Some filters can be to restrictive depending on the duct system so a less restrictive filter may need to be used.

Gas Furnace Maintenance

Whether you have natural gas or propane there are certain items that need to be checked to ensure safe and efficient operation. Make sure to start your furnace a couple of times before the winter comes, so you’re not left needing furnace repairs when you need it most.

  • Heat Exchanger – the heat exchanger is a system of metal tubes that allows for the gas to be burned inside of the tubes and have air heated by passing over the tubes with no transfer of the exhaust fumes. The heat exchanger is checked for rust or any cracks that could enable dangerous carbon monoxide to enter your home.
  • Burner Assembly – clean and inspect burner assembly.
  • Gas Pressure – the gas pressure is adjusted if needed.
  • Ignition Assembly – the assembly is cleaned to ensure proper operation.
  • Flue – once the burned gas leaves the heat exchanger it exits your home via the flue. Based on the efficiency of your furnace the flue may be a metal pipe or a PVC pipe. Either way, the flue is checked to ensure there is no leaks.
  • Safeties – all of the system’s safeties are checked.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pumps differ from gas furnaces and require some additional steps. With our experience and knowledge on heat pumps, we’ll make sure your heat pump gets proper maintenance, no matter the make and model.

  • The evaporator coil is checked – the evaporator coil inside of the air handler is checked to ensure it is not leaking and to see if the coil needs to be cleaned. Light soiling of the coil can be treated without the coil having to be removed for thorough cleaning. If however, the system does not have filters, or the filters are not changed on a regular basis it is possible for heavy soiling of the coil necessitating that the coil will need to be removed from the air handler in order to properly clean the coil. This is one of the costly repairs that can occur if filters are not used or changed on a regular basis or regular maintenance is not performed.
  • The auxiliary heat element – this is an electrical heating element that provides heat when it is cold outside. The element is checked to ensure it is free of debris and properly operating.

I called Loving Air around 7 pm and I am very thankful for their Technician Daniel. Daniel provided my family and I with the best customer service anyone could ever ask for!
I explained to him I had water leaking from my upstairs ceiling. I also explained to him that 10 days prior I had water leaking from my AC vent and another company came out to repair it. He allowed me to FaceTime him in order to show him the damage my ceiling had and he assessed my situation quickly in order to ensure my property didn’t have any further damage! He also contacted a local Water restoration company to come out to my house to remove all the water from my carpet. I called the other company who provided me with the service repair 24/7 emergency hotline twice and never received a callback! What made my family and I appreciate Daniel even more was the fact that he called back to ensure we were contacted by the water restoration company and our house was ok!
This was my first experience with Loving Air and I will definitely give them a call for their services in the future!! From a military family, we want to thank Loving Air for all the assistance today!!!

Our partnership with Loving Air continues to be invaluable. Shane has employed a great team of professionals.
Today we had Jim Bob work on a commercial unit that wasn’t heating. He arrived before the time block and is always courteous and professional. His HVAC knowledge is greatly appreciated as he diagnosed the problem and had us up and running before he left.

I knew when I bought my home 3 years ago that I would need a new HVAC unit in the near future. Well, the time has arrived so I did the standard thing of calling around for quotes. I was astonished at the cost of a new system and all the “add ons”. On getting my final quote, I called Loving Air. The office staff asked various questions to assess my need and urgency. When I mentioned the concern with the temps going below freezing in the next few days and that I may not have any emergency heat, they arranged for Dakota to come out the next morning, which was a great bonus.
They informed me he would text when he was on his way and would include a picture of himself which I found as an excellent safety feature. Dakota arrived right on time and after our initial conversation, set out to look at my system. After his examination, we sat to discuss possible quotes. Being a senior, I informed him of my budget. He answered all my questions about HVAC units and how it all works. He was very courteous, patient & polite. He asked me additional questions, so he could get a better idea of the type of system that would be best for me within my budget. He provided me with four detailed quotes, one of which looks like the “winner”. Thank you, Loving Air!
