Regular, high-quality maintenance is essential for any machine to run optimally and avoid breakdowns. The furnaces that heat our homes are no different. Reliably heating our homes, winter after winter, the heaters in our homes go through countless heating cycles. The best way to ensure that they continue to reliably provide heat is through professional maintenance and tune-ups.

We recommend that you schedule your HVAC maintenance either before or after a period of heavy use, ideally in fall or spring.
Being diligent about your annual furnace maintenance services comes with a number of benefits. System tune-ups have the potential to help prevent stressful situations while hopefully saving you money. To give our customers an idea of why this annual task is worth it, here are the most significant of those benefits.
In winter, a home heater consumes more energy than any other system or appliance. This means that any faults in your system can directly translate into fluctuations in your utility bill. Quality maintenance will ensure that your system is running as efficiently as possible, year-round.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to avoid unexpected repairs entirely, but a well-maintained heater is far less likely to break down. Remember, a single maintenance call is almost always less expensive and more convenient than several repair calls.
An often-overlooked benefit of regular heater maintenance is the positive effect it can have on the quality of the air inside your home. Our tune-ups ensure that your filters are changed and that the system isn’t releasing any dangerous gases like carbon monoxide.
Additionally, it’s recommended that you have your ductwork professionally cleaned at least once every 3-5 years. While it’s not included in standard maintenance, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the current condition of your ductwork as well as when you should schedule your next cleaning.
For heating systems that utilize natural gas, regular maintenance can be essential to ensure that the system is functioning properly and is safe to use.
The lifespan of the average heating system is between 15-20 years. The best way to make sure that a heater is capable of standing the test of time is by being diligent about its annual maintenance schedule and addressing issues as they arise before they have the chance to worsen.
