Fall is Here, Time for St. Joseph Homeowners to Have a Furnace Check-up!

Fall is here, and with low temperatures dipping down into the 40’s, it won’t be long before St. Joseph homeowners will be switching on the heat! At Schomburg Heating & Cooling, we know the importance of scheduling preventive maintenance, and taking care of little problems before they become bigger, more costly problems. Whether you live in Platte City, Weston, Dearborn, or any town north of the river, it’s important to schedule a check-up now, before technicians get busy and you find yourself facing the Thanksgiving holiday with no heat.

The most important thing you can do to ensure your heating system performs efficiently, keeps your family warm, and lasts for years is to schedule regular preventive maintenance checks. These should be done in fall and spring, prior to time to turn on the A/C in summer months, or the furnace in winter months. By having your St. Joseph HVAC technician check everything out ahead of time, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your system will operate properly, and that any small issues that may have led to bigger issues is resolved.

What can you expect when one of our factory-certified technicians comes to your home for a preventive maintenance check?

Our professionals perform a thorough check of your system, including burners on gas HVAC units, gas pressure, operating pressure, natural gas or propane leaks, air filter, and more. Voltage and amperage will be checked, and your technician will perform an emissions analysis as well. We will also check to see that any noises you have been hearing do not indicate a problem, and work to eliminate or reduce the noise when possible.

Other aspects of a fall preventive maintenance check include:

  • Test and adjust thermostat (when needed)
  • Test for carbon monoxide leaks
  • Run a complete cycle of operation to review and ensure system is operating properly
  • Check air filter and change if needed
  • Clean safety controls and adjust where needed
  • Inspect temperature increase across furnace

Ultimately, our qualified HVAC technicians want homeowners in St. Joseph, Weston, and surrounding areas to enjoy a warm winter season knowing that your furnace is safe and operating at maximum efficiency so that costs can be kept as low as possible. Just like having regular maintenance performed on your car, having your heating system checked out can extend its life.

Don’t put it off; nothing is worse than getting up on a chilly morning to find that your heating system or furnace is on the blink!
