Schedule a Heater Servicing Session Now!

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Air conditioning season lasts a long time here in Orlando, FL, which is why we’re such a thriving tourist spot. Long summers and mild winters have a way of putting people at ease, and local residents justifiably spend more time concerned about their air conditioning systems than their heating systems. But with fall well underway, temperatures are going to drop, and while an operating heater isn’t as pressing a concern as an operating air conditioner, you don’t want your furnace to run into trouble on the coldest nights of the year.

Reasons to Schedule Heating Maintenance

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Usually, when you call a technician to your home, you have a pretty good reason for it. Perhaps your heating system is making some particularly strange noises, your heater struggles to switch on, or you just want to upgrade with zone heating or a new thermostat.  But you may not know that there are plenty of very good reasons to call a technician when there are no apparent problems with your heating system.

Here in Orlando, we go for a long time without running our heating systems. This means that you may not know if there is a lurking problem with the components of your heater. And with a defunct heating system, you may leave yourself vulnerable to a few different problems that can affect your comfort, your bills, and even your safety.

There are a few good reasons to call a technician for maintenance on a regular basis. We’d like to remind you that it’s not too late for a heating maintenance visit this season, especially since you may end up with the following benefits afterwards.

  1. A more comfortable space: Maintenance includes an inspection, cleaning, and adjustment of some of the most crucial components to the operation of your system and some of the seemingly minor ones as well. This helps to make sure your unit is in top shape, as a unit runs at its very best well all of the components are in an optimal condition.
  2. Energy savings: When parts are loose, out of place, bent, or dirty, they have to run for longer and use up more energy to get the house to the proper temperature. This costs you more than expected every month, and a maintenance visit may actually offset the extra cost in some cases.
  3. Peace of mind: Finally, heating maintenance gives you peace of mind that your system will not breakdown any time soon. And with a gas furnace, you’ll feel confident that there is not a safety issue that could lead to a gas leak.

Call the experts at Downtown Air & Heat to make sure you get a thorough and complete heating maintenance in Orlando. We offer a twice yearly tune-up as part of our maintenance program with discounts on parts and services as well.

It’s important to make sure that your heater is not only professionally installed but also professionally maintained.

The first reason to sign up for heating maintenance is to make sure that your heater lasts as long as (or longer than) it should. This is an important consideration for strictly budgetary reasons. New heater installations are major investments and you want to make sure that your get your money’s worth from your system. Unfortunately, many homeowners think they can merely leave their systems alone after installation, but you may place your system at risk if you neglect basic maintenance.
