Posted On July 28, 2021
Heating services refer to the installation, repair and maintenance of central heat, boilers, heat pumps, geothermal furnaces, refrigerators, forced-air and duct mini-split heaters. In New York City and Long Island, the primary sources of heating services are electricity, gas and propane, with oil, wood and other alternative fuels slightly behind. In addition, many homeowners hire landscaping services to install outdoor furnaces or gardeners to install underground pipes and furnaces.
Central heating services require routine maintenance including scheduled servicing, safety inspections, repairs and upgrades. Scheduled servicing checks and ensures that your devices are in good operating condition. If you have installed geothermal or forced-air boilers and ducted heat pumps, they must be serviced at least twice a year. Service calls can be made to the customer service number, your local power utility or the manufacturer’s dealer.
When it comes to maintenance, most contractors recommend oil changes for furnaces and furnace parts at least once a year. Oil changes are usually done by authorized personnel or licensed technicians. The oil will be checked for quality and consistency, and then the filter will be replaced if necessary. In addition, all furnace parts, including the pilot light, should be replaced periodically as needed. You should never switch on a heating device when it is cold or hot. Properly pilot light and furnace igniter safety should always be employed.
On Staten Island, heating services technicians will not perform any work on gas or oil furnaces. Only certified HVAC contractors on Staten Island are qualified to make repairs and upgrades to gas furnaces. Most heating contractors that come to Staten Island do not have the appropriate certifications. In order to work on gas furnaces on Staten Island, you must have the right certification from your hometown heating contractor. If your heating contractor does not have the proper certification, you should not repair a gas furnace.
Central air conditioning repairs should only be performed by licensed heating contractors. Even when your furnace is off, you should still have your air conditioning system professionally inspected. A professional HVAC contractor will make sure your unit is running properly and will perform preventative maintenance services, such as cleaning ducts and changing filters. The technician will also check your blower fan, if it needs servicing. If the blower motor is not properly maintained, you may experience increased strain on the blower and cause premature failure of your unit.
Newer furnaces use a variety of technologies that will shorten the life of your blower and cause premature failure of your furnace. Professionals performing heating services on Staten Island will remove all debris and dust from your system, including screens. If your furnace is still running and producing heat, the technician will shut off the circulatory system so the furnace can cool down. After the blower has cooled, he or she will likely install a new filter and possibly change the blower fan if it has become clogged with gunk. Once the furnace has been safely shut off, you can call you heating repair specialist for a service call.
Homeowners should take care to not overload their boilers. Although the most expensive repairs may be needed to keep your boiler’s operating efficiently, overloading can damage components and shorten the service life of your boiler. When heating services are called out to a home, homeowners should follow every simple step that the technician tells them to in order to return their boilers to working condition as soon as possible. In every case, homeowners should contact their heating equipment provider to find out how to prevent future damage to their boilers and central air conditioning systems.
Many homeowners have the option of calling a New York heating services company whenever they need to make repairs to their home or business heating systems. However, in the event that an emergency occurs, many of these companies also offer emergency hot water and electric heating system replacement services, which are very useful. In the event of an electrical emergency in your home, for example, heating services professionals will be able to use a portable emergency generator in order to bring electricity to your home immediately.
