Heater Maintenance Services
and heat pumps are often neglected because they remain hidden while operating quietly in the background. The only attention these critical appliances draw is when they break down. When a vital component fails, the cost to repair the unit can be expensive. In a worst case scenario, a neglected central heater can suffer permanent damage. Regular maintenance helps keep your forced-air or water furnace, heat pump or geothermal system in first-rate condition as your home stays warm and comfortable all winter long. Once a year in the fall, our trained technicians
come to your business or home to analyze your heating equipment and perform several important services.

Benefits of Regular Maintenance
There are many long-term benefits of preventative heating maintenance when the work is performed by a professional HVAC contractor.
- Better Indoor Comfort: When a central heater is dirty and restricted, the unit’s output declines. This translates into cold spots, drafts and rooms that are uncomfortable. Our technicians restore lost capacity so the right amount of warm air flows into every room.
- Reduced Repair Costs: Preventative maintenance helps uncover small issues before they cause an unanticipated malfunction. Worn out components place more stress on other parts, which can turn a minor repair into a very expensive major repair. Equipment that is well maintained accumulates fewer run-time hours, so it will probably last much longer.
- Improved Efficiency: When our service techs visit your home, they tune and calibrate your heating equipment to provide the best possible efficiency. They will also look for other performance-robbing deficits like duct leakage, perimeter leakage, substandard insulation and leaky doors and windows.
