Here’s How You Can Use a Maintenance Program

Monday, December 24th, 2018

checklistWhen we explain what a maintenance program is, people often get the wrong idea. They think that it’s nothing more than a service where we schedule your maintenance appointment for you. “What’s stopping me from scheduling my own maintenance?” is the usual response.

We understand this as well, so that’s why you’ll find that a good maintenance program has more to it than simply alleviating the burden of scheduling an appointment. The benefits will vary from contractor to contractor, but you’ll find the ones worth using will give you value that goes well beyond the maintenance check itself.

Monday, February 5th, 2018

heater-maintenance-serviceOur winter temperatures don’t get as low as they do further east, but cold weather is still fairly common this time of year, and most homeowners will still need their furnaces to run on a daily basis in order to keep their homes comfortable. If you have an older heater and it’s on its last legs, a repair call may need to turn into a heating replacement rather than try to push it further. But how can you tell? What’s the best way to determine if a breakdown in the middle of winter is enough to warrant a new furnace, or if it can keep going with a little work?

In the end, only you can make that decision. However, there are a few firm guidelines that can help you on your way. They usually boil down to cost: whether it will cost you more in the long run to pay for a repair on an older system or invest in a new system instead of throwing good money after bad. There are two specific factors you should focus on to help make that decision.

low-air-flowWinter will be here this week, and chances are you’re already running your furnace on a daily basis. You need to keep a close eye on the system for signs of trouble. In most cases, there are usually telltale symptoms letting you know that a problem is getting bigger.

And it’s simple enough to pay attention to anything that may be amiss.

Among the most common signs of a problem with your heater is a lack of airflow from the vents: either gone entirely or moving much more slowly than you are accustomed to.
