Heating and cooling uses up the most utility energy in your home. In fact, over 1/2 of the energy used in your home is consumed by your heating and cooling system. An annual inspection will help ensure maximum energy efficiency and give you the peace of mind ahead of the heating season.
Preventative maintenance will mean fewer system failures and a longer life for your plumbing and HVAC equipment, so call 1-304-744-3221 for your annual 29 point health and safety heating inspection backed by our 5 star experience guarantee. Our industry leading inspection includes the following:
Reasons For Maintenance:
- Dirty evaporator cooling coil, outdoor condenser coil, or blower fan wheel could increase electrical usage by 50% or more.
- Dirt builds up on the blower inside of the air handler, and as it gathers on the fan blades and motor, friction is created. This leads to efficiency reduction, as well as wear and tear on the component, and a reduction in airflow.
- A refrigerant undercharge of only 10% can increase operating costs by almost 20%.
- Industry studies suggest that a significant number of home comfort system failures can be attributed to a lack of annual maintenance. This is true for all plumbing and HVAC systems whether they be electric, heat pump, drain lines, water heaters or fossil fuel furnaces.
- Up to 80% of all heating and air conditioning compressor failures could be eliminated if the problem that lead to failure had been corrected in a timely manner.
- Inspect the heat exchangers in a gas furnace to ensure safety and there aren’t any cracks. A defective heat exchanger will allow carbon monoxide in the house which can cause health issues and even be deadly.
- Lack of cleaning is a primary cause of outages in all HVAC systems, including heat pumps and furnaces.
- A maintenance inspection will also focus on your ducts. Ducts that allow conditioned air to leak out are a key contributor to poor airflow, causing heated and cooled air to escape the ducts before it reaches your living spaces.
