Benefits of Regular HVAC Maintenance
Our HVAC technicians provide top-quality maintenance services at your convenience. They aim to make sure your systems are working at their optimal level, or if far too aged or damaged, they’ll make sure to tell you what your best options are for replacing those systems. Preventive maintenance will help your system overcome any present issues. It can also give you an idea of the remaining lifespan of your system.
Schedule maintenance for your heater or cooling system with one of our techs, and you’ll experience these significant advantages:
Longer System Lifespan
While it isn’t always possible to prevent an older system from breaking down, a little maintenance can go a long way. Regular maintenance can help you prevent the issues commonly associated with aging HVAC systems – working harder to cool, and increasing your monthly utility bills.
Reduced Costly Repairs
Getting regular maintenance done on your system means you’ll be able to avoid the costly repairs typically associated with a total HVAC breakdown. While you may not always be able to prevent a breakdown, regular care reduces the chances, and you’ll be more aware of the status of your system.
Increased System Efficiency
Regular maintenance means your system will be running cleaner and smoother for longer. This can help your system cool or heat more efficiently while even bringing down utility costs.
Heather Indoor Air
The terrible air quality typically associated with a malfunctioning HVAC unit can lead to many health problems – asthma attacks, eye, nose, and throat irritation, to name a few. Cleaning out the high levels of accumulated dust can help improve the air quality and reduce the likelihood of developing these symptoms.
How to Know When You Need Heating Replacement?
For many homeowners, completely replacing their heating system is the last resort, but it’s the best option in some instances. You may consider replacing your heater or furnace if it’s over 30-years old, requires regular repairs, or is simply not properly sized to heat your entire home.
Because temperatures in North Muskegon can dip drastically in the winter season, it’s never a good idea to wait until then to determine that you need a complete system replacement.
Fortunately, most heating systems give off subtle clues that they’re nearing the end of their service lives, giving you ample time to plan on replacing it before it fails. Here are a few symptoms to watch for.
- Rising Energy Bills
- Excessive Dust, Dirt, or Soot
- Indoor Humidity Problems
- Uneven Heating from Room to Room
- Unusual Buzzing, Rattling, or Squealing Noise
- Visible Cracks on the Unit
- Increased Repair Frequency
Instead of waiting for your system to break down completely, look to Lascko Services for reliable and professional heating services. We offer expert heater repairs, installations, and even maintenance to keep your system working better for longer.
5 Signs It’s Time to Call a Furnace Contractor
It isn’t easy sometimes to know when to call a furnace contractor. Is that strange noise going to lead to a long-term problem? Am I not getting enough heat because the system is getting older? Although you can prevent most furnace issues with annual maintenance and tune-ups, some issues require immediate attention to avoid a complete system breakdown.
A gas leak is a serious issue that puts your family and home at risk. If you smell gas in the house, you must act quickly. Leave the house as soon as possible, get to a safe place, and then call a professional HVAC company to diagnose and repair the problem.
If your heater isn’t providing the heat you’re used to; it could be a dirty air filter, mechanical issue, or a combustion issue. Sometimes, combustion issues manifest in strange noises coming from the system or a spike in your heating bills. Combustion issues require repair from a licensed HVAC technician, so call us as soon as you can for an inspection and diagnosis.
Your furnace goes through a normal on/off cycle to maintain the desired temperature. However, it may constantly run when it’s malfunctioning, which puts greater wear and tear on the system. Before you call, check to see if the fan is set to ‘auto’ and check the thermostat. If everything looks normal, call a certified HVAC technician to determine the problem.
Your furnace will make some background noise when it’s running. However, if it suddenly begins rattling, grinding, thumping, or squealing, it usually signals that one or more of the internal parts are damaged. It’s essential that you call for repairs as soon as you hear these noises. Failing to do so could cause irreparable damage to your furnace and require replacement.
Frequent Pilot Light Issues
It’s normal for your pilot light to go out occasionally. Still, if you find you’re consistently relighting it, it means there’s a problem, which can cause your system to run inefficiently and your heating bills to spike. Call one of our experienced technicians if you experience a pilot light that won’t stay on.
