Heating & cooling service


How often should a heating system be serviced?

Your HVAC systems should be checked by a professional once a year. So if you have a standard central AC or a furnace, each of these units should be maintained, each year. If you have a heat pump system that you use year-round, then you’ll want to schedule this service once every 6 months.

What is a HVAC maintenance?

A Maintenance Walk-through
HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The trained HVAC technician who comes to your home to perform the preventive maintenance will check all the systems or just a specific one, depending on your requirements.

How often should you flush your central heating system?

Because a powerflush is so powerful, it’s only usually necessary every five to six years, unless a problem with your central heating causes a higher volume of build-up than normal.

How often should water heater be serviced?

In terms of repairs and maintenance, the professionals suggest having your water heater flushed out at least once every year. Essentially, this means that your tank will be emptied out through a hose, and then refilled with clean water.

Why is cooling harder than heating?

To cool a room, you have two options: transfer the heat from the room to somewhere else, like we do with air conditioning or convert that heat back into another form of energy. You can’t convert heat directly into useful energy. That’s exactly why cooling is so difficult.

Can you flush your own central heating system?

There are a couple of ways that you can clean the sludge out of your heating system. The first is called a powerflush, which is both the name of the method and also a physical device that your heating engineer will use. Alternatively, you can take every radiator off one at a time and flush it yourself.

How do I get rid of sludge in my central heating system?

To get rid of central heating sludge, you will need to do a power flush either by using a magnetic power flushing machine or by using an heavy duty power flushing machine.

How long does a furnace cleaning take?

1-2 hours
Furnace tune-ups take anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the unit. You won’t have to put your whole day on hold. It’s a small investment of time to make sure you aren’t huddled and waiting for heat when you need it most.

Why does my boiler keep firing up when heating is off?

If your combi boiler fires up then turns off then this is likely to be the ‘preheat’ function. This is nothing to worry about and simply ensures there’s some hot water ready to be sent to the taps when you need it. However, if it keeps firing up then quickly turns off again, this could be a sign of short cycling.

How big of tankless water do I need?

You’ll need to be able to heat at least 5.2 gallons of water. So you’ll need a tankless water heater that can produce at least a 60 degree rise in temperature at 5.2 gallons per minute.

What are the disadvantages of hot water heating systems?

Hot-water systems do have their problems, however. For example, they are usually more expensive to install than forced-air; and they are not easily adapted for air-conditioning or cooling. Water leaks are rare, but can result in serious damage. The heart of the hot-water system is the central boiler.

Do tankless water heaters need maintenance?

Tankless water heater maintenance is a must and should be done at least once a year. Also commonly referred to as an on-demand water heater, the tankless water heater may need maintenance every six months if your water heater is set to a high temperature or if you have hard water.
