Preventative Maintenance

 

Keeping your home's heating and cooling system tuned-up and running properly is one of the best things you can do for your home, both from a comfort perspective as well as a financial one.

Over the course of the next 12 months, your home's heating and cooling system can easily run for 3,200 hours.  Comparing that to a vehicle running at 45 miles per hour for that long of a period, your looking at putting the equivalent of over 140,000 miles on your unit during the next year.  Performing a system tune-up at the beginning of each heating and cooling cycle is like giving your system an oil-change and making sure it's road worthy before going on a long trip.

Small problems can be detected long before they turn into big, expensive problems when temperatures are likely at their worst and when it's most inconvenient for you.

Customers who have tune-ups performed regularly see these annual benefits:

  • Fewer Service Problems.  Tune-ups prevent costly equipment breakdowns, maintain optimal efficiency and can extend the life of your equipment.  They also prevent your system from breaking down during peak season when service calls take longer to get to.
  • Savings on Heating and Cooling Bills.  According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save up to 10% on your utility bills just by having regular tune-ups performed on your heating and cooling system each year.
  • Safety.  With gas furnaces, regular inspections can detect tiny cracks in your heating system's heat exchanger, cracks through which carbon monoxide can leak into your home.  We follow strict standards, set by the National Comfort Institute (NCI), when we test for sources of dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home.  In fact, we are one of the few companies in the nation that is certified by the NCI.
  • Keep Warranties Valid.  Your system warranty may not be honored if your equipment is not properly maintained.

I want to commend Jesse Hernandez and his crew for doing an outstanding job. It was very professionally done. I have nothing but good things to say about the installation. Beginning with Marcus Wallace, who is responsible for the pre-evaluation and was very professional and ending with Phillip Jones, who was responsible for the quality check in the end.
