Without Regular Maintenance, Your Heater May Act Like It’s Haunted!

Call Now For HVAC Tune-Up Service From Comfort Pro!

It’s that time of year when the temperature starts to cool off and nights start to get chilly. But, when you go to turn on your heating system and you expect nice, warm air, instead you hear scary clanking sounds and feel chilled to the bone when no heat comes out of your vents. If your heating system has not had its annual maintenance service, your unit may be haunted by dirty coils, a blocked condenser, a dirty blower, issues with the electric connection or a leaky pump, among other things. With the help of the team at Comfort First, your system will be ready to go when the temperatures drop to keep your home warm and cozy!

What Is Included In Annual Maintenance For Your Heater

Routine maintenance isn’t simply a quick check to make sure your furnace or heat pump is working. At Comfort First, we go through a many-point inspection and checklist to ensure your heating system will not only start up when the weather gets cold, it will run efficiently and effectively all winter long. This service includes:

  • Cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils.
  • Checking all the electrical connections.
  • Checking the thermostat for accuracy.
  • Clearing out the condensate drains.
  • Cleaning and optimizing the burners.
  • Lubricating any moving parts including fan motors.
  • Cleaning the ignition assembly.
  • And more!

Do you have a gas furnace or heat pump? If so, this service is especially important for you in order to keep your home safe from any issues with the fuel powering your heating element.

Save Energy & Money

With the holidays right around the corner, we’re all looking for ways to hang onto our dollars for a little longer. Regular maintenance can help you do just that. A furnace tune-up service will help you save money on energy costs each and every month by allowing your system to run at its best. Units that are working the way they should cost a lot less to run, without dirt clogging up heating elements, fans jamming and not spinning smoothly or thermostats malfunctioning and telling the unit to work harder than it should. Your heating and air system can account for more than 50% of the energy your NC home uses. Make sure to keep your power bills from becoming terrifyingly high with regular service each fall.

Get Cozy

The main reason we have a heating system in our homes is to keep warm when the fall and winter seasons arrive. With annual service on your system, you can keep nice and comfortable throughout the cold weather months without having to worry about your system breaking down or not working properly. Who wants to deal with a furnace that’s not working on Thanksgiving or a heat pump that won’t turn on after we get our first snow of the season? Annual service allows you to simply set your thermostat and enjoy your warm and cozy home all winter long.
