The weather is still on the milder side now, but before you know it winter will be here. You want to be sure that your heating system is ready and up to the challenge of keeping your family warm all winter long. Don’t worry, Clyde S. Walton will take care of it!

Heating System Winter Prep

Now is the time to test your heating system and make sure it’s working as it should be. You don’t want to find out you’ve got a no heat situation in the middle of winter. If you’re oil burner isn’t working, here’s what to do.

  1. Make sure that the oil burner switch is on.
  2. Adjust your thermostat several degrees above room temperature.
  3. Make sure there is oil in the tank.
  4. Press the re-set button on the relay (but only once).
  5. Check for a flame.
  6. If burner isn’t running at all, check for a blown or loose fuse.
  7. If your burner still isn’t working, contact Walton Inc. for service.

Maintenance Matters

The best way to avoid having a no-heat problem this winter is to get heating maintenance now. Walton offers service plans that provide comprehensive protection and will help you avoid unexpected repairs and keep your equipment running better for longer. So schedule a tune-up for your boiler, furnace, or heat pump as soon as possible. We also recommend signing up for a propane gas appliance safety check now as well.

Don’t delay in scheduling your tune-up. Now that it’s autumn our schedule is already filling up and we’ll get busier and busier the closer we get to winter.

Regular maintenance for your heating system is worth the investment. A heating system that doesn’t receive regular maintenance will lose efficiency and cost you more to run. By getting a tune-up now, you’ll enter winter knowing your equipment is running safely and efficiently. Plus, since most breakdowns can be avoided with regular maintenance, getting a tune-up now will allow one of Walton’s expert technicians to find and fix any minor issues before they become more serious and costly.
