While winter temperatures in Southwest Georgia may experience fluctuations, homeowners continue to rely on their heating systems to provide comfort throughout the season.

1.    Energy Savings

A heating system that is dirty or neglected has to work harder than necessary to raise the temperature in your home. During the course of the scheduled appointment, a qualified technician will perform a number of vital operations, including:

    • Tightening loose connections
    • Lubricating moving parts
    • Cleaning or changing the air filter
    • Testing airflow
    • Inspecting ductwork
    • Checking connections
    • Testing system controls
    • Testing thermostat calibration
    • And more!

Each of these tasks contributes to the efficient operation of your heating system, reducing energy usage and lowering your monthly bill.

2.    Increased Comfort

Malfunctioning system components, leaky ductwork, or reduced airflow can prevent your heating system from achieving the desired set point on your thermostat.

3.    Enhanced Air Quality

As conditioned air moves throughout your ductwork, it carries with it any loose particulate that was unable to be trapped due to a clogged air filter, dirty system components, or sat lingering in your ducts. Common contaminants that affect air quality can include:


  • Pet dander
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Bacteria
  • Dust
  • Pollen

In addition to creating more dust on surfaces in your home, the particulate can trigger symptoms in those who suffer from allergies or asthma, contributing to a lower quality of indoor air.

4.    Extended Equipment Life Span

When your heating system is clean, lubricated, and in good repair, parts can move freely and airflow is unimpeded. The less stress that is placed on your equipment, the longer it will last, ensuring years of optimum performance.

5.    Improved Safety

A clean, well-maintained fuel-burning appliance produces a minuscule amount of carbon monoxide, which is typically carried away by the venting system. However, a system that is dirty or malfunctioning can produce much higher concentrations of this deadly, odorless gas, posing a threat to the occupants in your home. As part of your heating maintenance plan, the technician will inspect the burner combustion, gas connections, and heat exchanger to ensure all parts are in good working order.

6.    Lower Cost of Repairs

Most minor issues can be detected and rectified during routine maintenance before they become major, costly repairs.

7.    Reliability

Taking the time to schedule preventive heating maintenance at the start of the cooler season ensures your system will operate at peak performance, providing reliable, efficient heating services and avoiding a costly midseason breakdown.
