Almost any HVAC expert will tell you that you need yearly heating maintenance in Charleston, SC, and this is for several reasons. First, a professional heating tune-up may be required under the terms and conditions for your system’s warranty. Without it, you won’t get coverage for any repairs.
Second, even if your furnace or heat pump isn’t under warranty, you’ll reap numerous benefits. Your system will run more smoothly, minimizing energy waste and keeping your bills down. It should experience less wear and tear, which means you can put off replacement for many years to come.
Let’s get into what a heating tune-up covers. There’s the inspection, and then there are the tweaks and repairs that the technician makes along the way. The equipment will be cleaned, and moving parts will be lubricated as necessary. You can expect each and every component to be checked to determine that it’s in good working order. This includes the evaporator coil, condenser coil (in heat pumps), heat exchanger, motor, bearings and fan.
The technician will also check for troublesome issues:
- Gas leaks
- Refrigerant leaks
- Dirt and dust buildup
- Loose electrical connections
These issues can diminish cooling capacity and even pose a hazard to your health and safety. Loose wiring, of course, can start a fire, and refrigerant is a toxic substance. Gas from a furnace can poison you with carbon monoxide. As for dirt and debris, you don’t want this caking up the coils and heat exchanger because the result will be lukewarm air and overheating equipment. The system will strain to reach your desired temperature, and before you know it, it may break down.
Thermostat calibration also falls under maintenance. The technician adjusts the thermostat so that it can accurately tell what the temperature is inside your home. Without this, your system may not turn on until it’s really cold or turn off until it’s exceedingly hot.

“When I called for an annual tuneup of my heating system it turned out that my previous company had been sold to Hero. When I looked them up I saw all the outstanding reviews & I was reassured about using them. Well they have all these great reviews for a reason! Outstanding customer service and good pricing.
