Regular Maintenance

One of the most important things you can do to maintain your central heating system is to regularly check and clean your thermostat, heating programmer, and other temperature controls. Dust and debris can accumulate on these devices, affecting their accuracy and causing your heating system to work harder than necessary.

We suggest cleaning your temperature controls yearly with a soft cloth and mild cleaning solution. Be sure to turn off the power to your heating system before cleaning, and do not use any abrasive cleaners or solvents.

Troubleshooting Tips

If your heating system is not working, try these troubleshooting tips before calling a professional.

First, check your heating programmer to ensure that it is programmed correctly and that the correct time and date are set. If you are unsure how to program your heating system, refer to your user manual or contact us for assistance.

If your heating system is not producing enough heat, check your thermostat to ensure that it is set to the correct temperature. If your thermostat is working correctly, check your radiators to ensure that they are not blocked or have trapped air. Bleeding your radiators can often solve this problem.

Check your temperature controls if your heating system is producing excessive heat or not turning off.

If you are still experiencing problems, call us for assistance.
