The last couple of days in Melbourne have been uncomfortably cold – and it’s only going to get chillier!
For most of us, this is the first time we’ve had to use our heating systems for months (especially now that many of us are working from home at the moment.)
Only one problem: your ducted heater isn’t working!
With winter rapidly approaching, there’s no room for heating breakdowns – that’s why now’s the best time to prepare by ensuring that your ducted heating is operating as it should before the cold truly hits us.
Wondering about the condition of your heating system?
Why you need ducted heating maintenance services before winter starts
Breakdowns of your heating system can leave you cold and shivering during the coldest months of the year.
If only you knew there was something wrong with your ducted heater before the weather turned!
If you ask us, now’s the best time to book a service.
In our experience, many Melburnians leave ducted heating service until the last second.
This leads to an influx of urgent calls, all of which are as important as each other. But there’s only so many hours in the day!
The secret? Booking your services in the ‘shoulder’ seasons. That means:
- Organising a ducted heating service in April or May (during autumn)
- Ensuring your air conditioning is in good working order around October (in spring)
If you want service quickly, these two seasons are your best bet!
You’ll benefit from:
- Faster service and less waiting
- A quicker response time for emergency repairs
So before winter officially starts and the weather really turns, be sure to book in a ducted heating system inspection, service or repair!
Extend the life of your ducted heating system
Whether yours is an old system or a newly installed reverse cycle system, your ducted heating system will inevitably suffer from the effects of wear-and-tear.
Luckily, we can help catch the worst cases of these for you.
Think of it this way: when you prioritise ducted heating maintenance, you are actually extending the life of your ducted heating system by:
- Fixing issues as they arise (or even before!)
- Clearing out clogs and blockages
- Replacing parts that are starting to wear out
- Upgrading parts that may not be up to par
Not only that, but it can also lessen the risk of an unexpected breakdown, as well as the costly repair that usually comes with that.
Many of the issues you may find in your ducted heating system are minor.
Over time however, they can turn into major issues, and even necessitate early replacement if ignored long enough.
Ducted heating maintenance protects your unit from these issues, and keeps your home comfortable for many winters to come!
Save on energy expenses
Yes, you heard us right!
In many cases, faults in your ducted heating system can affect its efficiency and its ability to provide heat. This in turn leads to higher power bills come winter.
And it isn’t just major problems, either – even minor issues like a blocked filter can dramatically increase the amount of power your heater needs to effectively warm up your space.
When your ducted heating system is working in its optimum capacity, all its parts from evaporator and condenser coils, filters and thermostat are working as they should be – that is to say, with the lowest amount of energy possible.
Scheduled maintenance makes sure that all parts of your ducted heating system are running properly and will detect any problems that may cause you to use up more power than normal (and thus, better manage running costs).
In short: ducted heating maintenance and service is worth the money!
Imagine having to worry whether or not your ducted heating system is going to work every time you turn your thermostat on.
Imagine standing under a vent to constantly check whether it’s actually working.
In addition to the confidence of knowing that your heater is going to work every time, ducted heating maintenance also helps you maintain fresh and pleasant air throughout winter.
As we mentioned above, filters and ducts can get clogged.
Knowing that your heater could potentially be blowing bacteria and debris all over the home isn’t exactly the most comforting thought.
Ducted heating maintenance on the other hand ensures that you and your family can enjoy fresh, clean, and pure air.
