Heating Season 2014-2015


We are now entering the 2014 heating season. Now is a good time to have a annual checkup on the appliance that provides you comfort during the cold winter months. Annual checkups help to find problems that may not show up until the appliance gets a good workout on a cold winter day. Many times HVAC equipment will break down during a long cold spell and when that happens, most of us HVAC contractors will be booked solid fixing and repairing these systems.

Some key components of a typical tune up include:

  • Filters (I recommend monthly replacement/cleaning)
  • Sources of carbon monoxide (leaky heat exchangers)
  • Strange noises (fan motor bearings failing)
  • Gas burner adjustment (spiders can build webs, causing poor combustion)
  • Flame ignition systems (Hot surface igniter can be cracked)
  • Pressure switch malfunction (causes lockout of equipment)

We can provide the following services:

  • Combustion analysis (set burner for proper combustion) This will identify problems not seen by visual inspection. Combustion analysis is  performed using a computerized combustion analysis  tool. Our tool is sent to the factory yearly for calibration.
  • Heat exchanger test ( test for leaky heat exchanger in furnaces)
  • Carbon Monoxide Test (CO2 test each room)
  • Load calculations (We can run a load calculation to determine proper HVAC equipment sizing)
  • Cleaning Blower Fans ( Dirty fans wheels do not provide the proper air flow to the heated space)

Boiler maintenance:

  • Check proper flow through the hydronic circuit
  • Check Pumps/circulator
  • Check Flue Draft
  • Boiler Control and Outdoor Reset Function
  • Mod/Con High efficiency Boiler Setup and Diagnosis
  •  Modulating Condensing Boilers need annual service to provide the highest possible performance they are capable of. Annual combustion analysis and cleaning are very important!!
  • Feed valves and Glycol feeders need to be checked for proper operation.
