Furnace Maintenance


Although you aren’t relying on your furnace for comfort during the summer months, it’s best not to completely forget about it. While your heating equipment sits idle, dirt builds up on the internal parts. This will cause inefficient operation, increased energy bills, and more frequent repairs. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) strongly recommends having a licensed HVAC contractor perform annual pre-season tune-ups of your heating system.

When you call the professionals from Atomatic Mechanical Services, we will make sure your furnace is ready to provide the comfort you expect, throughout the tough Arlington Heights area winters.

How Often Do I Need to Have Heating Service Maintenance Done?

Every year, you should schedule heating and air conditioning maintenance for the upcoming season. A good rule of thumb is to schedule your furnace inspection in the fall before you rely on your heating service for warmth in the winter. You’ll want to schedule your air conditioning service with your favorite heating and cooling company in Arlington Heights, IL in the spring before you turn it on for the first time in the summer.

Scheduling service so far ahead of the heating and cooling seasons allows ample time to order replacement parts if needed. By troubleshooting and checking the efficiency of your heating and air conditioning units, our service specialists will make sure you enjoy efficient, uninterrupted, and rewarding comfort all throughout the year.

Advantages of Heating Service Maintenance

Having your furnace regularly inspected holds numerous advantages. If your heating system is relatively new, manufacturers require regular, professional technicians to maintain warranty coverage. Any damage that is the result of neglected service will not be covered. Count on the team from Atomatic Mechanical Services to ensure uninterrupted warranty protection. And if your heating unit has seen better days, call us to restore components to optimum working condition.

Proactive service prepares your heating system for the cold weather workload. Through comprehensive inspection, the NATE-certified and licensed technicians from Atomatic Mechanical Services will uncover small problems before they become costly problems.

Services Included in Heating System Maintenance

A well-maintained furnace can provide an average of 20 years of service life. Having knowledgeable and qualified HVAC repair technicians perform regular tune ups allows for smooth operation, wards off difficulties, promotes longevity and maintains home comfort.

As part of your furnace maintenance, we’ll clean and test connections, lubricate moving parts, and check the system’s controls to make sure that the heating unit is operating at peak efficiency. This saves you money on both your monthly utility bills and costly, preventable repairs. By limiting the number of malfunctions over the life of the system, your heating equipment costs less to operate, and you stay comfortable.

A clean, well-functioning heating system doesn’t just prevent issues from causing your furnace to break down, but regular heating system maintenance also protects your indoor air quality. Heated air is filtered, trapping contaminants such as dust mites, pollen, dander, odors, mold spores, and other particles. If the system is clogged with dust and debris, it’s polluting rather than benefiting the air circulating throughout your home. During your furnace inspection, your technician will also change out your furnace’s air filter. This is what prevents the debris that’s floating in your air from clogging up your furnace. This is an easy maintenance tip you can do yourself. Every 90 days, change out your furnace filter to prevent it from over clogging and causing airflow issues in your furnace.

During your inspection, if you’ve noticed any odd smells coming from your furnace, or if you’ve noticed hot and cold spots throughout your house, talk to your service technicians about duct cleaning. It is possible for plant matter, decomposing vermin, animal feces, and insects to be concealed within the inner workings of a forced-air system, introducing bacteria to the airstream. Professional air duct cleaning is critical to ensuring a clean, healthy, and comfortable home and commercial environment.
