HEATING AND FURNACE MAINTENANCE, REPAIRS, AND REPLACEMENTS
Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing Services all Furnace and Heat Pump Systems
When winter comes each year, a reliable heating system is essential. That means more than just making sure your furnace turns on, it means you need an efficient furnace that won’t break the bank while still heating your entire home. Because, while space heaters and a fireplace can be nice and cozy, nothing quite meets the quality of being able to have a warm home that’s safe and comfortable.
For this reason, Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing strives to deliver the best heating service possible. From a solid installation or replacement to maintenance that helps keep your system running for years to come, our team will do our best to keep your heating on or to restore it to functionality when something breaks.
You’re already aware of why Mainstream is the best home service company in the area, so expanding out to include us for repair, installation, and maintenance for your cooling system makes perfect sense.
Maintenance cycles for your furnace unit are often overlooked by homeowners, but they’re essential to prolonging the service life of your system and maintaining energy-saving efficiency. Simple services, such as replacing the furnace filter every 3-6 months, can (and should) be performed regularly.
For more complex maintenance, you should seek help from Mainstream’s qualified service technicians. We look at more than just the filters and vents, we diagnose the entire system from vent to register to ensure proper operation. We also test your smoke and CO alarms for added protection against home damage and loss of life.
A properly maintained system can last for years over its expected lifespan, with substantial savings over the life of the unit. All furnaces, regardless of age, should be given a full inspection and maintenance every fall, before you turn on the heat for the first time during the winter.
You don’t control when your system breaks down, but you can call a dedicated service team that’s available 24/7! Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing is there for you. When it’s cold outside and your furnace stops working, you need relief fast. That’s why we offer 24/7 emergency repair and same-day furnace and heating service.
A damaged furnace doesn’t always stop working completely. It can be difficult to tell when your system is actually broken and in need of repair, but there are always signs. Call a licensed furnace technician if:
- You notice a dramatic increase in your utility bill
- There is a smoky or foul odor when the system is running
- You notice increased humidity from the ventilation system
- The air from the vent is blowing cold (and the system is set to heat)
- The furnace cycles on-and-off too frequently
- Your unit fails to turn off, or won’t turn on
The day you install your furnace is an important step and can shape how long and how well it works. But ensuring a proper installation starts before you’ve even purchased your system. An improperly sized furnace can cause excess strain on the unit while causing leaving you with cold home that’s still expensive to heat.
These issues are only compounded when the system is installed incorrectly. A properly seated, connected, and sealed system (with ductwork of the correct size) is essential for heating efficiency. Many issues with hot (or cold) spots in the home come from ventilation leaks and incorrect furnace sizing. The professional technicians at Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing have the training and equipment that’s necessary to ensure a long-lasting installation, guaranteed to maintain efficiency and longevity for your unit.
