It’s Time For Your Heating System Tune Up

When the temperature dips in the winter, you turn the thermostat on your air conditioner to keep you warm and comfortable. This is the time of the year to call your licensed air conditioning repair technician to give your system a tune up. You want to make sure that  your system is running trouble-free. Having a licensed professional inspect and clean your home HVAC system is the best way to keep your system running at peak efficiency.

Maintaining your heating and cooling system actually involves more than most homeowners realize. Your licensed technician uses their own organized checklist that allows them to systematically review the individual systems and subsystems to make sure they are in proper working order. A licensed technician will inspect and service the safety controls, exhaust, pipes and heat exchanger just to name a few of the things on the checklist.

A Properly Maintained Heating System Can Lower Your Energy Bills

About 55% of American home owners have their heating-cooling equipment professionally serviced at least once a year, according to a recent survey of home owners across the country.

  • Fuel bills rise as much as 10-15% as a result of inefficient equipment operation. It’s like having a fireplace that burns money.
  • Accelerated equipment wear. Annual maintenance extends equipment life as much as 20 – 30%. This translated to an additional 5-10 years of usage for your furnace or boiler.
  • Most service contractors will tell you that about 75% of all repairs they do could have been avoided with regular maintenance. Heating system repairs typically run into the hundreds of dollars – more fuel for that money burning fireplace.
  • Most important, annual heating inspections can save your life and those of your loved ones. Small cracks in a heat exchanger or problems with the flue system could allow deadly carbon monoxide gas to seep Continue reading

Hiring Romark AC & Plumbing for Your HVAC Tune Up

A regularly scheduled tune-up and cleaning of your furnace or HVAC system is as important to your plumbing and heating as your annual physical is to your health. When you hire a plumbing company for scheduled HVAC maintenance services, they should do much more than simply change parts and clean your filter. What is surprising is the large amount people who decide to opt out of having a regularly scheduled tune up of their air conditioner.  All are valid reasons, but they don’t make it right.

Some would argue that a air conditioning service technician who comes to work on your HVAC system should be an expert who has received over 300 hours in training for servicing all makes and models of air conditioning systems. Why do you need a licensed professional to tune-up your air conditioner or HVAC system? Because home heating is an integrated system of fuel, water and air. It requires knowledge in all aspects of plumbing and heating in order to be truly effective in furnace system maintenance and repair.

Pressure levels, well pump efficiency, and home filtration systems all play a key role in the functioning of your heating and cooling system for your home. Continue reading
