Questions you may have:
How much is the cost of servicing my furnace?
When servicing your furnace, it is very important to hire a furnace company with complete integrity. Such a furnace company will ask you questions about your furnace (age, condition, and so on) in order to begin to design a detailed estimate of your servicing cost. They will then conduct a thorough diagnosis of your furnace system to assess its current condition, ideally at least a 40 point inspection. The will then be able to present you with a detailed report describing the condition of all the main components, what should be replaced, what should be repaired, and so on, with a precise charge attached to each. Pro Ace technicians are not only trained and licensed, they are skilled in the art of customer relations, easy to talk to, clear in their explanations, and truly caring about our customers’ HVAC unit concerns. They will explain why in some cases it is cheaper in the long run to replace certain components rather than repair them for the short term cost savings. And they will be able to present you with some options regarding parts and other issues.
What is involved in a furnace service?
A complete checklist in a regular furnace servicing will include about Multi items. Among other components, the technician will inspect the vent system (for leaks and blockages), the heat exchanger (for corrosion or cracks), the blower (for dirt and debris), the air intake grills (for blockages), the electrical connections, the flue (for obstructions), the belts (for signs of wear and tear), the air filter (for dirt), and the seal on the blower access door. The technician will also perform various tests on the blower motor, the thermostat, safety controls, start-up cycle, the burner and the flame sensor. The technician will also lubricate various areas in the motor. A gas furnace requires a few extra checks, including the thermocouple if applicable , the combustion gases, the ignition, the fuel lines, and the manifold gas pressure. Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning is always ready to explain any of these operations to everyone who has questions about furnace service and furnace maintenance.
How often should I get my furnace serviced?
Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning recommends servicing your furnace once a year. As you can see from the question and answer above, there are many areas of your furnace that will tend to build up dirt, grime, or debris during its normal course of operation. And other areas, the belts in particular, will have a tendency to wear down. But perhaps the most important issue is regular lubrication. Without regular lubrication, the motor components will wear down much more quickly, costing you needlessly in the ensuing years. Contact Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning for any furnace servicing and furnace maintenance questions.
How does servicing my furnace save me money?
Regular servicing of your furnace will catch the build-up of dirt or debris, the deterioration of the belts, and the malfunction of various furnace components before they cause any damage to your furnace unit. In addition, a regular servicing of your furnace will maintain lubrication of the motor to keep it running smoothly. It is important to keep all the working parts of your furnace in servicing and maintenance mode as opposed to repair and replace modes. Regular furnace service and maintenance will minimize if not prevent the need for furnace repair and postpone furnace replacement. Saving you a lot of money.
