Like it or not, winter is coming to Mokena, IL. It won’t be long until you are shoveling snow, sliding on the roads and bundling up to go outside to get the mail. While you can’t do anything about the weather conditions outside, you can ensure that you stay nice and toasty inside by scheduling preventative heater maintenance or a furnace tune-up with Climate Master Mechanical Contractors, Inc. This is the most important thing you can do to keep your utility bills low as your furnace or boiler works hard for you this winter.
Our 16-Point Safety Inspection Package for Your Furnace or Boiler
Scheduling an annual appointment for preventative maintenance is similar to purchasing insurance. We can’t guarantee that nothing will ever go wrong, but you reduce the likelihood when small issues are detected and fixed before they become more problematic. A small investment now means that you save yourself discomfort and aggravation later. Every furnace tune-up or heater maintenance appointment from Climate Master Mechanical Contractors, Inc. includes the following:
- Amperage draw and electrical check
- Vent or flue piping to ensure proper inspection
- Fan belt check
- Thermostat calibration and check
- Lubrication of blower motor and pump
- Cleaning of the heat exchanger, burner and pilot assembly
- Blower inspection
- Clean or change the air filter
- Check gas pressure
While saving you money and improving your comfort is important, your safety is an even bigger priority. We spend considerable time checking for leaks to make sure there is no possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. Our service technicians also run a test cycle of your furnace or boiler just to be sure that we didn’t miss any problems during our inspection.
The Numerous Benefits of Regular Preventative Maintenance
We believe that at least 40 percent of service calls could be avoided if the homeowner was part of our preventative maintenance plan. Additionally, furnaces and boilers that receive regular tune-ups may have an increased lifespan of up to 30 percent. You should notice a decrease in your utility bill almost immediately after our company performs preventative maintenance on your heating system. That is because well-maintained furnaces and boilers are naturally more energy efficient, resulting in reduced operating costs. One last thing to consider is that most HVAC manufacturers require regular preventative maintenance in order for warranties to be valid.
Climate Master Mechanical Contractors, Inc. offers service plans ranging from one to three years. Our plan members receive discounts on parts and labor in addition to priority scheduling for non-emergency repairs. To ensure maximum energy efficiency in your home, you may also want to consider an annual home energy audit along with your HVAC tune-ups.
