System Care & Benefits: Furnace Repair in Mt. Pleasant

February in Charleston means temperatures typically range from 45 to 60°F. Although there aren’t as many local festivals on the calendar this month, there are still plenty of opportunities to explore the beautiful Lowcountry, from Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum to the Waterfront District at Shem Creek, shopping in the Old Village District, visiting the Charles Pinckney National Historic Site and more. While you may swap heavy coats for layers in the afternoon, homes still require heating (especially as cooler temps arrive later in the day). After a busy morning or afternoon outing, families want to return to a comfortable and safe home. In today’s post, we are covering some basics in caring for your HVAC system and spotlighting Furnace Repair in Mt. Pleasant, SC and beyond (services are available to our Lowcountry neighbors).

Caring for Your Furnace
You will often hear the recommendation to have your system cleaned and inspected semi-annually and for good reason: staying on top of furnace maintenance helps keep everything in good working order and saves you from costly, unexpected repairs. System maintenance may also decrease your home’s energy usage, translating into cost savings on your monthly bill. Everyone benefits from cleaner air and fewer allergens when your system is running at its best. Keeping loved ones safe is always a priority; you can expect enhanced safety from carbon monoxide and faulty pipes with the help of the ECHA team.

What To Expect During Semi-Annual Maintenance
During the inspection, our technician will cover everything from checking system operations and thermostat calibration to reviewing safety controls, electrical components, belts, blowers, connections, airflow and more. A cleaning of air filters, condensate drains, blower components, furnace burner and furnace ignition assembly is a part of the process, as is inspecting gas piping and lubricating furnace parts. For a more comprehensive list of what to expect, visit our recent blog post about HVAC maintenance. Your ECHA technician will cover everything in more detail during their visit as well.
