Thanksgiving Day, guests are coming, the main attraction is in the oven but your furnace fails.  This is what happened to a some of our customers in the past few years some of our reviews even reflect that. Of course we helped them, but it is not an ideal situation.

Things like this alway happen at the worst possible time, guests are expected, a new baby or elderly parents is living in the home and the heat goes out.  Sure you can call someone and have them charge you the emergency rate and have a tech that perhaps lost the on-call coin toss, the equipment and parts shops are closed and if they open after hours they charge for that. Basically, since that furnace of yours is out of sight we stop thinking about it and it doesn’t get the proper care to maintain it.

Studies show 90% of equipment failures are traceable back to no or poor preventive maintenance.  Simply put, preventive maintenance is a lot more than just changing air filters.

The goal of preventive maintenance is to identify issues long before equipment fails. This gives you the opportunity to budget for repairs, or to plan for equipment to be shut down at convenient times to create least amount of disruption.

Another goal of preventative maintenance is to prevent safety issues such as gas leaks, carbon monoxide issues and fire hazard.  Some inexperienced techs or handymen attempt to fix a problem and their solution is to bypass a safety mechanism, sometimes not even knowing the ramifications.  It could be that the furnace was shutting off because the flue was blocked (build up or a bird nest, etc. when you bypass that safety switch you are inviting lethal Carbon Monoxide into your home or the furnace may just catch fire.
