“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” - Benjamin Franklin
Ensuring regular maintenance is performed on the systems and appliances in your home lessens the likelihood of emergency situations and costly repairs. Doing your due diligence by scheduling maintenance regularly will also ensure it operates at peak efficiency and extends its life. Maintenance services require the knowledge, skill set, and tools of a professional. Our technicians will make any necessary repairs and, if foreseeable, alert you of anything that may need to be addressed in the future.
Ideally, the best time of year to have your furnace tune-up performed is in the fall before you begin using your system for cold weather months. The purpose of maintenance is to keep your system running at peak efficiency throughout the season. Our experienced technicians will clean and check all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, motors, ducts, valves, and blowers, as well as the ignition assembly, thermostat(s), and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We recommend that you change the filters every two to three months, or as needed. This action will extend the life of your furnace, keep repairs to a minimum and maintain high indoor air quality.
Support the longevity and efficiency of your boiler by scheduling regular maintenance. Boilers are complex systems that require a professional to perform maintenance. During maintenance, our technicians will clean and check the burners, combustion chamber, heat exchanger, controls, vents, tank, pipes, belts, anode rods, connections, drains, linings, and all connected components, as well as, thermostat(s) and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We recommend that you change the filters every two to three months, or as needed. This action will extend the life of your boiler, keep repairs to a minimum and maintain high indoor air quality.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.

“This was just my annual check on the heating system. I appreciated the e-mail telling the technician was on his way. When he arrived he was friendly and requested I bump up the thermostat so he could run the tests. He was quick despite having to climb up and down the pull-down stairs to the attic.”
