Preventative maintenance


Whole home comfort is what any family tries to achieve, a good general service to tweak your heating system will ensure your family enjoy comfort indoors this winter – and each one thereafter. Firing up your heating system before or after a season is just like servicing your car. A years workout, or even a system lying dormant over the months it’s not needed, requires a good spring clean, this prevents unforeseen problems and the stressful impact of living without your heating system due to a major fault and the costly bill associated with lack of maintenance.

Efficiency is a good thing, and modern day household appliances have more electrics and moving parts to ensure they release the least amount of carbon and keep the Ozone with as little damage as possible, however this requires upkeep to achieve peak performance and a longer life of your wood heater, gas log fire, split system, hot water service or hydronic heating system. Preventative maintenance is like a hair cut, mowing the lawn, a good spring clean, a dental check up, or clipping toe nails; it can divert unexpected breakdowns and minor problems can be detected early without the need to replace the entire unit.

Probably the single most important reason for regular servicing (aside from your families safety) is that manufacturers stipulate in their manuals that a product must be serviced regularly (usually not exceeding two years) otherwise the warranty terms and conditions are voided. A service can not be carried out by yourself, a mate or Jack of all trades. A licensed tradie is licensed for a very specific reason, he is qualified in his trade, he knows what he is doing, he knows the products he’s servicing and installing, he knows the building regulations and standards, and will guarantee his work, costing you less in the long run and keeping your mind at ease…
