Furnace Service, Heating Service & Furnace Maintenance Palatine, IL, Elk Grove Village, IL, Mount Prospect, IL, Hoffman Estates, IL & Schaumburg, IL
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes directly to heating and cooling. The US Environmental Protection Agency suggests annual, pre-season maintenance of your heating and cooling systems. When you schedule professional inspection from Residential Heating and Cooling, you’ll enjoy a number of cost-effective benefits, including fewer repairs, extended system life, and significantly improved efficiency. More rewarding and consistent temperatures, as well as dependable operation, offset the minor time and cost involved.
When the temperature suddenly drops, you want to make sure your heating equipment is up to the challenge. Seasonal service from the experts at Residential Heating and Cooling will uncover any small problems that have the potential of turning into complex repairs, and allow time to order replacement parts if necessary. If minor faults are not caught before the winter season puts added stress on the system, they may quickly graduate into much more complex repairs, and leave you shivering, instead of enjoying the toasty warmth of well-running furnace.
Heating Service Pros
A properly maintained furnace can last twenty years or more. Having a NATE-certified professional perform regular tune-ups allows the system to run more efficiently for longer. By cleaning, checking connections, lubricating moving parts and verifying system controls, Residential Heating and Cooling will promote safe and smooth operation, saving money on both utility bills and costly preventable repairs.
Annual maintenance, provided by licensed HVAC technicians, is often necessary for the continuation of warranty coverage. Manufacturer’s expectations for system performance, longevity and efficiency are based on the assumption of regular, professional maintenance. Seasonal inspection keeps lifetime costs low, because a clean, smooth-operating system wards off wear and tear and component failure.
Dirt accumulation, left unchecked, will wreak havoc within the system. As efficiency decreases, the furnace’s capacity to provide heat decreases, impacting additional components, such as the air handler’s ability to push heated air into your home. As the inner workings of the system become clogged, your furnace can experience longer heating cycles and overheat. This, along with corrosion due to the moisture from basements or garages, can compromise the condition of heat exchanger.
Even if your furnace still generates sufficient heat, it may pose a real danger to your home and family. Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. This process must be exact to prevent gas from leaking into your home. During a thorough inspection, the technicians from Residential Heating and Cooling will check the integrity of the heat exchanger to ensure safe operation. The heat exchanger is the metal that divides the two air streams. A crack in the heat exchanger can allow combustion products, such as carbon monoxide, into the air stream.
