Heating Maintenance

Heating maintenance is one of the most important services an HVAC contractor can provide for their customers. That’s because seasonal preventive maintenance is vital for heating system effectiveness and efficiency. When properly maintained, a heating system will likely last much longer than a neglected system. And, annual heating system maintenance helps to keep any manufacturer warranties intact, so customers will have less worry about out-of-pocket expenses should the system need repairs. Your contractor should be able to provide yearly maintenance, as well as ancillary services throughout the year, such as filter recommendations and replacement.

Heating Repair

If you’ve had annual maintenance on your furnace, boiler, or heat pump, the need for repairs will generally be less frequent, and usually less costly because maintenance helps to catch any small issues before they become large, more expensive ones. However, like any type of complex machinery, a home heating system is likely to need some sort of repair service during its lifespan. A good heating contractor will be able to troubleshoot your system, make recommendations as to what the best repair options might be, and complete your repairs promptly. And, if the system is beyond repair, or repairs will likely be extremely expensive, your contractor should be able to recommend an appropriate replacement solution.

Heating Replacement & Installation

Most heating systems can be expected to last between 10-20 years. The better it has been maintained, the longer you can expect your heating system to last. When it’s time to replace your system, it’s important to choose a contractor who not only provides quality equipment and expert installation but can also help you get any other heating service you might need. An experienced contractor can help you choose the best system for your home, budget, and lifestyle needs, and can make sure the system you choose is properly sized for your home.
