To safeguard indoor air quality, it is essential to maintain your heating unit and its venting mechanism. Proper selection and maintenance of air filters can greatly reduce the level of indoor dust and particulates, including allergens and airborne mold. The filter is the main defense against dust contaminating the interior. Once dust enters the furnace cabinet, it accumulates on bearings and pistons and leads to motor burnout. The NATE-certified technicians from name can recommend the ideal filters for your particular heating equipment. During regular maintenance we will replace filters and perform a full-system cleaning.

Protect your furnace with preventative maintenance
Your heat exchanger is something you want to protect. To put it simply, the heat exchanger keeps bad air away from the good air we breathe, protecting you from carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, soot and other unpleasant byproducts of the combustion process. When dust clogs components, airflow is restricted, leading to much longer run times. Your heat exchanger can overheat and crack. Moisture from the air in garages, basements and crawl spaces corrode heat exchangers. Best-case scenario, you’ll need to replace the heat exchanger. You may even need to replace the entire heating system. It’s much simpler to set up a maintenance plan with Discount Heating & Cooling and let us keep everything clean and running properly. Through regular tune-ups, our certified technicians will troubleshoot and eliminate the majority of potential repairs.
Increase the life of your heating system with annual service
Regular service limits costs over the life of a system. Fewer repairs, higher efficiency, longer lifespan, all add up to a heating system that costs less to operate.
