The Importance of Maintaining Your Heating SystemOctober 17, 2023
With the leaves changing colors and the air taking on a crisp edge, it’s clear that winter is on its way. As the temperature drops, it’s time to switch gears at home, transitioning from the cooling relief of your evaporative cooler to the cozy warmth of your heating system.
At Academy Plumbing and Heating, we understand that this transition might seem daunting, especially if you’re new to it. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you safely and efficiently make the change. Let’s dive in!
Understanding the Transition
Evaporative coolers, or swamp coolers, work wonders in dry heat by using water evaporation to cool the air. However, as humidity levels rise with fall rains and cool temperatures, these coolers lose their effectiveness. It’s time to change to your heating system works best in these colder, more humid conditions, providing the warmth you’ll need through the winter months.
What We Typically Do In A Fall Service
1. We Turn Off Your Evaporative Cooler
The first step is to turn off the water to your evaporative cooler. This includes shutting off the water supply so it doesn’t freeze and unplugging the unit. Allow the pads to dry out completely before proceeding to the next step.
2. Clean and Cover Your Cooler
Once your cooler is turned off and dry, we give it a good cleaning to remove any dust or dirt that may have accumulated over the summer. After cleaning, cover your cooler with a weather-resistant cover to protect it from the elements during winter.
3. Inspect Your Heating System
Before firing up your heating system, give it a thorough inspection. We check for any signs of wear and tear, and ensure all components are clean and in good working order. If you spot any issues, contact a professional to address them before turning on your system.
4. Test Your Heating System
Once we’re confident that your heating system is in good shape, it’s time to test it out. Turn it on and observe if it heats up your home evenly and efficiently. Listen for any strange noises and monitor for any unusual smells.
5. You Should Schedule Regular Maintenance
To keep your heating system running smoothly all winter long, schedule regular maintenance with a trusted professional, like Academy. This will help catch any potential issues early and keep your system operating at peak efficiency.
