Nobody likes being left out in the cold. Your heating system provides you and your family with protection from the winter weather so you can enjoy some of life’s best moments indoors, comfortably. Schedule a checkup on your system before it encounters a problem.

Preventative maintenance on your heating unit is necessary to ensure that your system is working properly and efficiently. Our team at MBI HVAC in Allentown provides responsive and dependable service for all of your heating needs. We take special care in maintaining your heating systems to ensure smooth operation and long-lasting service.

Benefits of Maintaining Your Heating System

Regular maintenance of your heating unit keeps your system running at its best and prevents costly breakdowns. We care for your heating system so you get the most out of your investment.

Extends the life of your system

Don’t let your heating system fail prematurely. Regular maintenance can prevent major breakdowns and prolong the life of your system so it performs all winter long.

Reduces energy and repair costs

Proper maintenance and regular heating system tune-ups can keep your fuel costs in check by increasing its efficiency. Replacing worn and damaged parts is also less costly than replacing the entire system due to severe damage. Isn’t it time you saved some green?

Improves system safety and reliability

Routine maintenance ensures that your system is operating safely and at the highest performance level. A properly cleaned heating system ensures comfort during any weather conditions.

Your Heating System Tune-Up

We recommend a routine tune-up for your heating system once a year. By maintaining your unit regularly, weaknesses or underlying issues can be determined and fixed immediately, giving you peace of mind.

Replace your furnace’s 1” pleated air filter.

You’ll breathe easier with a clean filter. Furnace filters allow your system to run more efficiently, saving you money on energy bills and preventing costly repairs or replacement. A clean filter improves your home’s air quality by trapping allergens.

Inspect the drainage system for blockage or leakage.

The condensate drain and trap serve an important role in removing condensation in your home. During a heating system tune-up, they should be cleaned and water should be replaced in the trap.

Wiring inspection and adjustment.

Tightening the wires and checking them for corrosion and damage may help prevent malfunctions and the need for costly repairs.

Inspect the vent system for blockage or leakage.

Vent system leakage can lower energy efficiency significantly even in a well operating heating system. We make sure the air is flowing properly throughout your system and home. This includes the outside termination and the connections at and internal to the furnace.

Record and measure the amp draw on the blower motor.

Amp draw is a measurement of the power being used by the motor to move the air through your heating system. Improper amperage can drastically reduce the life of the blower motor by putting more stress on the unit. We can locate this issue before new parts are necessary.
