Things sure change fast this time of year. Summer has ended, school is back in session and we’re getting to the time of year when the weather can change from day to day, or even from hour to hour.

Before Starting Up Your Home Heating System
It’s important to keep your home heating system well maintained and running throughout fall and winter. Although, there’s a lot you should do to keep things energy efficient inside your home, to get the most out of your system. A big part of that is finding and dealing with leaks, according to the US Energy Department. Look for areas around cut-throughs for pipes, gaps near chimneys and unfinished spaces behind closets and cupboards. Also, prevent cold air from coming in by adding caulk or weather stripping around leaky areas near windows and doors. It’s also a great idea to let the sun help heat your home. Keep the curtains open on south-facing windows during the day and then close them after the sun sets.
Your Annual Heating System Checkup
When you’re making sure your home heating system is ready for the winter, it’s an ideal time to make sure you’re all up to date with maintenance. Tragar can keep things running smoothly with our annual heating system checkup. We’ll check your system’s thermostat settings and tighten all connections, including electrical, gas or oil connections. We’ll do other checks as well making sure your gas pressure is at a normal level, as is burner combustion and we’ll make certain the heat exchanger is in good working order. Tragar will lubricate the moving parts within your system, measure the voltage and currents on your motors. Then, we’ll inspect your condensate drain and we’ll do a thorough check of your system controls. Furthermore, we’ll test the start and shut-off cycles on your system. All of the maintenance and checkup work done by our technicians will have your heating system running safely and more efficiently.
