FAQ’s When It Comes to Your Minnesota Heating System

Winters in Minnesota are COLD. There is certainly no doubt about that. There may be, however, some doubt about your heating system and how Dean’s Professional Plumbing & Heating can ensure it is consistently and properly working to warm you.


We provide answers to a few of the most common questions about heating services below:

Q: What is included in my furnace maintenance visit and when should I schedule one?
A: When your technician arrives for your furnace maintenance he will make sure the furnace is running at optimal efficiency by checking both the furnace filters and vents. After all, a clean furnace is a happy furnace. Otherwise, you will be wasting energy and fuel. Your technician will also ensure your furnace is receiving enough power and that the thermostat is set accordingly. So when should you schedule yours? Yearly! If it has been more than a year, you’ll want to call for your furnace maintenance today.

Q: Are there different types of water heaters?
A: Yes. When purchasing a new water heater, you can choose from the following: tankless water heaters, electric water heaters, gas water heaters and solar water heaters. Tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular since they run more efficiently than traditional water heaters and can save you a lot of money on heating bills in the long run. The only downfall is that the initial investment will be greater.

Q: At what temperature should I set my water heater?
A: The recommended temperature for your water heater is generally 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure you receive hot water when you need it but can also prevent accidental scalding.
