Heating Tune-up's & Maintenance Service
Like any fuel-burning appliance, natural gas furnaces need occasional cleaning and maintenance to remain operating efficiently. Routine maintenance can often sport problems before they become too serious, preventing unnecessary repairs and extending the life of your heating system. The tune-up and maintenance process typically includes:
A thorough system inspection, including testing the thermostat, electronic ignitor/pilot light
Cleaning the burners and inspecting the heat exchanger and flue for leaks
Cleaning the blower fan and adjusting the fan belt
Lubricating bearings, pulleys, and other moving components
Installing a new air filter and checking the refrigerant level
Measuring return/supply of airflow and inspecting electrical components
Benefits of Routine Maintenance
By having a complete inspection and tune-up performed both prior to the beginning of the heating system and just after it ends, you can experience several benefits including :
- Greater efficiency: With proper maintenance, the system will not have to work as hard as a poorly-maintained system to keep your home comfortable, reducing energy usage and utility costs.
- Improved reliability: Frequent inspections can help to spot problems early, allowing them to be repaired before a major system failure occurs.
- Lower repair costs: Repairing problems early can prevent further system damage and unnecessary repairs in the future.
- Longer system life: Proper maintenance helps to avoid unnecessary wear and damage, prolonging the life of the heating system.
- Better comfort: A well-maintained system can keep your home more comfortable and improve your indoor air quality.
At Air Care Heating & Air we can keep your heating system operating at peak condition with regular inspections and tune-up’s, as well as repairs, when required. To learn more about our maintenance plans and tune-up services Contact us today.
Heat System Installation & Replacement
If your heating system is extremely old or requires frequent repairs it may be worth the investment of a new central heating system. A new system will require fewer repairs, it will cost less to operate, thanks to efficiency improvements, and it will keep you more comfortable, thanks to new technologies such as zoning systems and programmable thermostats.
Here are a few signs that it is time to replace your heating system:
The system is over 10 or 15 years old
Utility bills have become extremely expensive
The system has major problems like a failed compressor or cracked heat exchanger
The system requires frequent repairs
Benefits of a Heat System Replacement
By replacing your old heating system with a new heat system you will enjoy several benefits, including:
- Increased Efficiency: With new coil designs, better refrigerants and multiple-speed compressors and fans, today’s heat pumps offer dramatically increased efficiency. Likewise, new furnaces use technologies like variable-speed fans, electronic ignitions and optional condensing gas systems to improve efficiency.
- Improved Comfort: With multiple fan speeds, and features like zoning systems and programmable thermostats, today’s heat pumps and furnaces offer better comfort while saving energy.
- Reduced Noise: With multiple speeds, air handler fans can turn on and off gradually and operate at lower speeds, reducing noise.
- Better Air Quality: With improved air filters and multiple fan speeds, today’s heating systems can remove pollutants from the air more effectively.
