Keep Heating and Cooling Equipment Running Like New With Our Furnace & Air Conditioner Maintenance Services
Martin Enterprises offers HVAC maintenance services for residential and commercial buildings alike. Regular furnace and air conditioner maintenance has a dual advantage: it helps keep your HVAC system running more smoothly for a longer period of time and saves you money in the process.
How Can I Tell If My HVAC System Needs Maintenance?
Even if you don’t think there is a problem with your HVAC equipment, professionals agree that it should receive maintenance at least two times a year. Fall is the best time to have a certified specialist examine your heating system, since this is right before the coldest weather of the year sets in. Likewise, spring is the ideal time to get your cooling system checked out, as the hottest and humid months of the year are soon to follow.
Signs You Need Air Conditioner or Heater Repair
By providing routine maintenance to your HVAC system, you help ensure that you and your family enjoy comfortable indoor temperatures year-round. Although yearly maintenance is a recommended way to keep your replacement and repair costs down, sometimes heating and cooling systems do need unplanned repairs. Signs you need air conditioner or heater repair include:
- Your heater or air conditioner shuts off at the wrong times or fails to turn off in the first place
- Your heater or air conditioner gives off strange smells and/or makes odd noises
- You notice a large amount of dust or humidity
- Rooms are too cold or too hot despite appropriate heater and air conditioning settings
- You have abnormally high utility bills
- Instead of being blue, your furnace’s gas burner flame is yellow
- And more
If your furnace’s gas burner flame is yellow, call a professional immediately. This may mean you have a carbon monoxide leak.
How Long is a Normal Heating or Cooling System Lifespan?
HVAC professionals generally agree that well-maintained furnaces and air conditioners have the ability to last as long as 10 to 15 years before requiring replacement. Keeping your HVAC equipment properly maintained can save you money by lowering monthly utility bills and lessening future repair costs. After your HVAC equipment is over a decade old, you may want to start researching new, energy efficient heating and cooling system possibilities, which can also save you money.
Don’t wait until your heating or cooling system needs to be repaired to schedule an appointment with a certified contractor. Call us in the fall to ensure that your heater is in prime condition for the chilly winter months and in the spring to make sure your air conditioner is prepared to handle the impending heat. At Martin Enterprises, our foremost concern is keeping our customers comfortable indoors all year long.
