Heat Anticipator & Smoke Detector Inspection Point

An integral part of becoming a homeowner, regular maintenance should be performed on both heating and air conditioning units. This inspection should be performed approximately once per year, checking all facets of the heating or air conditioning system. This inspection is performed to not only ensure that the systems are running efficiently, but also to ensure that no safety hazards are present in the home.

The technicians at Complete Mechanical, Inc. are well-versed in all types of heating and cooling systems, including but not limited to heat pumps, gas, and oil furnaces. As part of our inspection, we thoroughly check all of the parts of the system to ensure proper function. The heat anticipator is a small component of the thermostat, and this is one of the items on our checklist. A heat anticipator that is not functioning properly can cause rapid cycling or short cycling, causing it to run inefficiently. This could cause hundreds of dollars of heating bills over the course of a year. We also check all of the smoke detectors in the home to ensure that they are working.
