How often should I have my system checked?
Depending on your type of system and the fuel that you burn, maintenance requirements will vary. Check your appliance service manual for recommended maintenance schedules or contact your nearest Eastern Service Department to discuss the best schedule for you.
What needs to be maintained, exactly?
Here are some maintenance tips that will help keep your system running safely and efficiently:
- Have your safety controls tested.
- Have the gas piping tested for leaks.
- Visually inspect your oil tank for signs of leakage.
- Report propane tanks that appear to be unlevel, excessively rusted, in disrepair, or in need of replacement.
- Have a qualified technician annually clean your furnace, do a system check-up and determine the efficiency of the fuel burning equipment.
