When winter hits our region, it can hit pretty hard. In addition to considerable snowfall some years, and more than considerable snowfall some others, residents in Massachusetts also have to deal with very cold temperatures throughout the winter season. If you are hoping to enjoy efficient heating in Framingham, MA, or the surrounding areas, you need more than a dependable gas furnace or boiler; you also need that system to be exceptionally well-maintained!
You can count on this being the case when you schedule your heating maintenance services with the technicians at Nicholson Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. When we handle your heating tune-up, we will make sure that every single component in that system is in prime working condition. Not only will your comfort levels improve, but your budget may look a little less tight!
What to Expect During a Heating Tune-Up Visit
During routine heating maintenance, many general tasks are completed. Gas burners are cleaned, for instance, which helps your system to heat air (or water in the case of a boiler) with greater ease. This means that less fuel will be consumed in doing so, helping your system to operate more efficiently.
The fan in your furnace will have worn belts replaced as needed, and this helps it to force air through your ductwork more efficiently. Controls on the boiler or furnace will also be adjusted to optimal levels for both efficiency and comfort. All moving parts will be lubricated as well. Less friction means less energy consumption and greater efficiency.
Increase Heating Efficiency with a New Thermostat
If you really want to boost the efficiency with which your gas boiler or furnace operates even further, consider small upgrades such as a new thermostat. If you are using a basic digital model, you can benefit greatly from upgrading to a programmable thermostat, for instance. You can maintain more moderate temperatures in your home during the day, while you’re away, and schedule your system to start heating your home more shortly before you arrive back in the evening.
This cuts down on the energy used during the day, without leaving you with a cold house to try and heat up when you get home. When you opt for a programmable thermostat, you can strike the right balance between comfort, convenience, and efficiency. Let us know if you have any questions!
