"Ducted central air and furnace systems should be inspected by a professional at least once a year, but electric baseboards and portable heaters usually only require a little DIY work to stay in good condition."
CYPRESS, Calif. (PRWEB) February 06, 2018
With winter in full swing and showing no signs of letting up anytime soon, NewAir Appliances is reminding customers about the importance of maintaining their home heating systems.
"Proper maintenance is important to keep any kind of heater working its best," said Andrew Stephenson, Director of Product Marketing at NewAir. "Ducted central air and furnace systems should be inspected by a professional at least once a year, but electric baseboards and portable heaters usually only require a little DIY work to stay in good condition."
Stephenson points out that heaters with electric elements should be kept clean to keep dust and debris away from the hot spots. "A clean heater is a safe heater, and will reduce the odds of small pieces igniting and causing a fire risk," said Stephenson.
To help homeowners maintain their electric heaters, NewAir has published a series of informational articles with how-to tips for customers. "We’ve updated and upgraded our blog to be packed with really useful information," said Stephenson. "We have articles about getting the most out of our appliances, which includes how to maintain them so our customers can enjoy many years of use."
According to the NewAir blog post, homeowners should also make sure to maintain proper clearances around their electric heaters. For baseboards, this includes making sure curtains are hemmed at least 12 inches above the top of the heater to avoid a fire risk.
