You’ve probably already been told that you should have your furnace and heating system inspected every year. However, did you know that good heating maintenance can actually save you money in the long run? That annual service appointment by a HVAC professional can spot trouble areas in your heating system before they become expensive messes. However, identifying trouble spots is just one of many reasons to schedule that annual service call. The technician will leave you with a written evaluation of your system and any additional work they feel your system needs.
At JC & JC HVAC Mechanical Contractors, we proudly serve Washington, DC, Montgomery County, MD, Howard COunty, MD, and the surrounding areas, providing homeowners across the region with trusted and reliable heater maintenance services. Here’s what you can expect from our team of expert heating technicians:
What Happens During a Heater Maintenance Call?
You might be wondering just what’s involved in an annual maintenance appointment for your furnace. If all is well, this appointment usually lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. During this time, the service technician will check and lubricate all of the moving parts in your furnace, thoroughly clean your system, and make sure that it’s getting enough energy from the power and energy sources, such as electric and natural gas or electric and propane.
Benefits of Preventative Heating Maintenance
Perhaps the most important benefit of scheduling that annual heating system maintenance service call is that the service technician will be able to catch any potential problem areas in your heating system and fix them before they cause your system to quit working or require a costly repair.
Reducing Your Energy Bills
The thorough cleaning that your heating system receives during your annual maintenance call can dramatically reduce your gas or electric bills. It takes a lot more energy to push air through a layer of dirt and dust than it does to push air through a clean furnace.
Minimizing Your Household’s Carbon Footprint
Using less energy to heat your home is also kind to the environment. Not only will you save the energy that would potentially be used in your home, but you also save the energy and resources needed to produce that energy.
Extending the Lifespan of Your Heating System
An additional benefit to a clean furnace is that your furnace will last longer, costing you less over your lifetime in new heating systems for your home. When your furnace is dirty, the system has to work harder, which can lead to your motor burning out and other catastrophic system failures.
Maintains Your System’s Warranty
Most manufacturer warranties require that you have your system services on a regular (usually annual) basis. Without this service call, you could be responsible for costly repairs that otherwise would have been covered by your warranty.
In addition to preventative heater maintenance services, JC and JC HVAC Mechanical Contractors offers a variety of furnace services for home and business owners in the greater Washington DC area, including duct work design and installation, affordable heating repair services and heating installation. We’re available to help residents and business owners in the Montgomery County, Howard County, MD and surrounding areas with their heating and cooling needs 24/7, 365 days a year.
