Heating Maintenance Checklist

During the winter season, heating units are important to the comfort and happiness of the whole family. Having a broken heater can be a huge financial burden. Performing a few maintenance tips can help you keep a properly functioning heating system.

Air Filters

One of the easiest maintenance tips is changing the air filter on a regular basis.  A Clogged air filter will not allow airflow, which can damage the heater. This can cause major problems with your heating unit so completing this simple step could save you a lot of money in the end!


Keeping your heating unit free of any outside debris is very important. Whether you choose to hire a landscaping service or complete the work on your own, it is vital to remember that all debris needs to be at least 3 feet away from the unit.


Cleaning the unit on a regular basis and ensuring that it is free from dirt and debris will allow the unit to work properly and efficiently for a longer period. Removing any furniture, drapes, or other objects that block the unit can prevent a potential fire hazard and ensure that the unit will continue to function properly and efficiently.


Precision Air & Heating suggests that an inspection of the heating unit occur regularly. Having this completed by a professional can ensure that all mechanisms for the unit are working properly.


Good maintenance is the key to prolonging the life of your heating unit. Yearly maintenance will ensure that your family feels comfortable in your home all winter long.
