 It is recommended that heating units must be inspected at regular intervals to find out any life threatening symptoms. For example, evidences of unsafe chimneys, missing or even damaged safety devices like relief valves or emergency shut offs, signs of overheating or leaks should never be ignored. Besides these obvious symptoms, there are other cues which should remind you that it is time for you to repair the heating unit. They are the following:

• When the heat pump is more than 10 years old

• When the boiler is more than 15 years old

• The heating unit requires frequent repair and the utility bill goes up every month you use the unit

• Certain rooms in the home are too hot while some of them are not adequately hot

 • For long periods your home remains empty but your heating unit do not have a programmable thermostat. In that case, it is high time that you opt for a more advanced system

• Your home has humidity problems or your home is excessively dusty

• Last but not the least, when your heating unit makes an uncomfortable noise

In case of heating units, it is suggested that first and foremost visual inspection of the system can save you from many unwanted service calls. However, keep in mind each of the different heating units require a different approach when it comes to the repair.

 It must be kept in mind here that the best option is to never having to repair your system at all. This is possible if you conduct an annual maintenance program of your system. During the maintenance activity the technician inspects the entire system thoroughly and takes precaution before any of the parts stops functioning completely.

Last but not the least, whenever you are calling an HVAC technician make sure that he is adequately trained and has proper licenses.
