Arrange a professional heating system inspection

It's crucial to schedule a professional heating system inspected. A skilled expert may examine your system to look for any potential issues, including as leaks or broken components. Also, routine inspections can assist in guaranteeing that your heating system operates properly and efficiently, which can help to lower your energy costs.

Our professionals at He@Heating Limited are properly qualified to assess heating systems and can see any potential problems that need to be fixed.

Change your air filter

Before the air enters your home, the air filter in your heating system is in charge of eliminating dust, dirt, and other material from it. The performance of your heating system can decrease and potentially fail if the filter becomes clogged over time.

An easy and efficient approach to guarantee that your heating system operates without a hitch during the winter is to replace your air filter on a regular basis. Every month, you should inspect your filter and change it if necessary. We advise doing this every three months.

Keep your vents and ducts clean 

In the vents and ducts of your heating system, dirt, dust, and debris can build up, reducing airflow and causing your system to work harder than it has to. Increased energy costs and even system failure may result from this.

Cleaning your vents and ducts on a regular basis can assist to increase the effectiveness of your heating system and lower the likelihood of malfunctions. 

Check for Leaks

Inspect your heating system for any leaks, especially around pipes and connections. Leaks can lead to a loss of heat and, if left unattended, could result in significant damage.

Calibrate Thermostat

Ensure your thermostat is calibrated correctly to maintain a consistent temperature in your home. A well-calibrated thermostat prevents your system from overworking.
