HVAC Technician Performing Heat Inspection

How is your HVAC technician improving the efficiency of your heating system?

HVAC technicians’ main job is to install and repair HVAC systems, right? Well, yes, but there’s much more to it than that. They actually wear a few hats when it comes to your heating system. They are also responsible for completing a heat inspection. What does a heat inspection entail? So glad you asked.

Chimneys, Vents, and Flues

We check the chimneys, vents, and flues to ensure the efficiency of your HVAC system. In addition, having your HVAC technician check these during a heat inspection ensures that your system stays safe and doesn’t have excessive damage.

Speaking of Safety, Check the Pilot

The pilot light on heating equipment for either gas or oil systems is also on the checklist for your HVAC technician. Making sure you have properly functioning safety switches is essential to maintaining the comfort and safety of your home.

Air Filter Check

Your air filter not only helps make sure your indoor air quality is at its peak, it also keeps dirt, dust, and debris from clogging your HVAC system. Your HVAC technician will check to make sure you have an air filter in place, as well as make sure it’s both clean and in working order.

Check and Clean the Motor

A heating inspection will include checking and cleaning the motor. This will ensure that you’re getting optimal performance from your heating system.

Ducting Inspection

A heating inspection wouldn’t be complete without your HVAC technician inspecting the ductwork in your home. Holes, cracks, or leaks will compromise the efficiency of your heating system.

To ensure the most effective and efficient performance by your heating system, be sure to have a reliable HVAC technician complete a regular heating system inspection. Looking for the right HVAC technician? Contact Helms Heating and Air Conditioning to find the right professional.
