Plumbing and Heating System Inspection Before You Leave For The Holidays

If your family is going to spend the holidays with family or friends out-of-town, make sure to have your heating system checked before you leave the house for an extended time.

Spending money on costly heating or plumbing repairs is not a fun way to start the holiday season. Do yourself and your home a favor and prevent issues that can arise to spoil your holiday vacation.

Here are things you might want to check days prior your departure:

  • Heating system inspection must be done. Replace furnace filter when necessary.
  • Check the heat ex-changer for rust and cracks. Replace it when you suspect a break or damage.
  • Inspect venting system for any leaks, holes and blockages. Ensure all the heating vents are open and not blocked.
  • Make sure to cover even the tiniest hole you can spot inside your home. Insulate around any water pipes that are situated in the inner side of exterior walls. Frozen pipes can wreak havoc to a home and can cost homeowners a fortune for the damage.
  • Use drain pans for washers, water heaters and safety valves
  • You should know where the water meter shut off are settled and ensure they are functioning well by turning them on and off on several occasions in a year.

Contact Central Plumbing and Heating Inc. for a thorough heating and plumbing check-up.

Furnace Maintenance Tips for Winter

It is important for your furnace to be in top shape in the winter. Gettting a furnace checkup at least once a year is highly recommended in order to make sure your heating system is operating perfectly and provides the right amount of heat in your home. This maintenance procedure should be taken seriously in order to ensure safety as well.

Inspecting your venting pipes and draining tubes. The technician will check if they are properly tied and arched. Also, take the opportunity to note for any rotten egg or sulfur-like smell. This distinct odor indicates gas leak and can cause fire explosion if not detected early.

Meanwhile, they will assess defective thermostat wires by yanking the wires slightly. They should be securely snugged and close-fitted. Keep in mind to turn off the power before beginning your inspection.

Ensure the furnace is clean, particularly the filters. Accumulation of dust and dirt can hamper the furnace’s optimum performance. Filters should be kept unclogged and should be replaced regularly so as to prevent the system from overworking and eventually overheating. This routine can help you save a lot on your energy bill and can spare you from spending on a full HVAC unit replacement.

Having a professional furnace technician to tune-up your furnace is also a great idea. For a thorough checkup on your heating system, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.
