Heating Installation

The process of deciding on which heater to purchase for your home involves many considerations, the first and most important of which is size. If you purchase a heater that is too big for your home, it will lead to less efficiency in your system and quicker burnout. Unfortunately, this is the number one mistake that homeowners make when they purchase a new heating system. As a matter of fact, the EPA estimates that an average of 20% of energy is wasted every year because over half of the heating systems currently in use in home are over-sized.

If you are thinking about having a new heating system installed, it is important to think about:

  • Efficiency
  • Climate
  • Size

Let the master technicians at Rivers Plumbing, Heating and Air help you to determine which size heating system is right for your home.

Heating Maintenance

Once you have finally made the choice of which heating unit to have installed in your home, the next step is to ensure the longevity of that system. To do this, you need to outline and implement a regular schedule for maintenance checks. At Rivers Plumbing, Heating and Air we recommending having your heating system maintained at least one time per year, during the fall in preparation for the winter. However, the more regularly your system receives maintenance checks, the more efficient it will operate.

During a routine maintenance call you can expect a check of:

  • Electrical Connections
  • Lubrication
  • Condensate Drain
  • System Controls

You definitely don’t want to be caught without a working heating system when the winter months hit, and especially not due to your system needing extensive and costly repairs. Contact us today to schedule your heating maintenance service call.
