Heater Service and Maintenance

Heating experts are here to keep your heater working at its optimum level and prolonging its working life. To do this we recommend that you get your gas heater, reverse cycle ducted system or hydronic heater serviced by a qualified technician frequently and at least once a year if the unit is used heavily.

Regular preventative maintenance of your heating unit has many good benefits. It reduces future repair costs, extends the lifespan and reduces the running costs saving you money on your electricity bills in the long run.

How often should your heater be serviced?

To maintain your warranty you may need to service the unit once a year by an experienced technician as a minimum. Check with us or the installation and operating manual that came with the unit to verify this question. In any case, we strongly recommend that you get your heating unit serviced once a year. There are multiple benefits to doing this. We have seen that regular preventative maintenance saves money in the long run because optimal efficiency reduces power bills and extends the useful life of the unit.

Can regular maintenance of your heater prolong the units life?

We're not just saying this. It becomes self-evident that regular servicing staves off unexpected breakdowns and prolongs the life of the heating unit. We speak from many years of experience on this matter and we get asked the question lots. Often our customers have used their heating system trouble-free for years and then something breaks or it begins to smell bad when in use. It's often at this point Heating Experts get a call to repair and/or service a unit and from this point on the customer asks us to come out once a year for a regular service to prevent this from happening again.

Is special care required for Gas Heaters?

We do go on about this topic with very good reason. In fact our warnings on this extend to the whole gas systems and all gas appliances. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a silent killer. It can't be seen, smelled or tasted, and is lethal in high doses. We recommend a CO alarm fitted to all homes and regular testing. Heating Experts can send a licensed tech onsite to perform a CO test. Call us today.
