Heating System Maintenance
While York heating products are built to last, regular annual maintenance can ensure they last as long as they were designed to and this service will also cut down on costly repairs throughout the life of your system. That means you need an expert you can trust to go beyond initial installation and keep up with system maintenance. That contractor should have ample experience with York brand heating systems and should be someone who has a relationship with the manufacturer.

Heating Maintenance Benefits
A home heating system is one of the most important systems you’ll ever own. It’s often used for 9 or more months out of the year, and must be properly maintained if you want it to last for the full 15-25 years it’s rated for. Furnaces in particular have warm air flowing over the heating coils continuously and they use gas in their pipe systems, which tend to build up a particularly large amount of debris and dust over time.
The system needs to be cleaned out, checked and recalibrated to ensure it continues working properly. To do these things, you need to have someone with skills and experience maintaining York heating systems.
Heating Maintenance Tasks
There are quite a few maintenance tasks that must be performed on a furnace to keep it running smoothly for years to come. The first is regular cleaning. Your furnace uses the fuel it consumes – gas, oil, or electricity – to heat a coil. A blower then pushes air over the coil to heat it and pass it into the ductwork. If the coil gets dirty, your heating system becomes less efficient at transferring that heat between the furnace, coil and air supply. When that happens, you pay more for heating and you system has to work harder, causing it to break down much earlier or more frequently than it otherwise would.
Furnaces with lower AFUE ratings in particular can cost you much more in energy costs under these types of circumstances because their already moderate efficiency rating is reduced further by dirty parts.
Another thing to consider in regular maintenance is the blower and the ductwork. With so much air passing through the ductwork each day and your blower being used regularly, you need to make sure no excess dirt or sediment builds up in there. This is doubly true for the furnace filter in your furnace room.
York Furnaces Are Built to Last
With a York Furnace, the need for repair is rare. However, if you want to keep your chances of needing repairs to a minimum, regular maintenance is an absolute must. Even with York’s top of the line Affinity 9.C and 9.M models that get up to an AFUE rating of 98%, annual cleaning and a check for worn parts are necessary to keep the system running.
But not all maintenance providers are experienced with York brand furnaces. That’s why we highly recommend you choose a New Jersey maintenance provider who has spent years building and maintaining York brand heating systems. Our dealer locator will help you find a local York expert and you can rest assured that we’ve worked with and found these dealers to be the best in the field.
