Modine is dedicated to building the most efficient unit heater technology in the industry. For example, a single one of our gas-fired Effinity® unit heaters—operating at as much as 97% efficiency—can provide more than $1,000 in energy savings each year.
But to reap the benefits and ensure optimal performance throughout the year, it’s important to properly maintain your system.
Zen and the Art of Maintenance Planning
Like most successful endeavors, effective maintenance doesn’t just happen. It all starts with smart planning.
If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to set a regular maintenance schedule. Then make sure you adhere to it.
Attention to detail is critical. This includes everything from visual inspections and checking power connections to changing filters and cleaning coils.
A good plan covers all components, big and small, including:
- Burner tubes
- Condensate lines
- Drain pans
- Electrical components
- Gas pipes
Don’t leave anything to chance. Our detailed operating manuals cover virtually every potential question or issue. In addition, here’s a handy checklist to help keep you on track.
Users also should keep records of when their equipment was last checked and serviced. Remember, all maintenance work and repairs should only be performed by trained HVAC professionals.
The Payoff of Proper HVAC Maintenance
Properly maintaining your HVAC system keeps it running efficiently to help lower your heating and cooling expenses.
It also protects your investment by preventing costly breakdowns, reducing repair frequency and prolonging the life of the heating system. With a little TLC, you can prevent potential problems from wreaking havoc in the future.
Take the time today to prepare for the future. With dedicated care and maintenance, your Modine heating equipment should last for many more years to come.
