Turn to King for your furnace tune-up and maintenance

Visitors to Chicago call it “the Windy City.” If they only knew, right? Winters for us Chicagoans can be pretty frosty, and your furnace is all that stands between you and that cold Illinois night outside. King Cooling and Heating reminds you that regular maintenance to your heating system can prolong its life, help you avoid costly emergency repairs, and give you the peace of mind that comes with a warm home.

Here at King Heating and Cooling, we believe that quality is king. That is why we employ the very best in our industry. With more than 45 years of experience, we take our time to ensure you always have heat in your home.

Why should I pay for maintenance on my furnace?

Keep in mind that you have a choice when it comes to maintaining your heating system, but you may not have as many options or as much time when something goes wrong. “Wrong” could include the furnace needing a costly repair, but it could also include even more serious issues, including water, electrical, fire, home damage, or health issues!

The more efficient a heating system is, the more money it is saving you. Our maintenance inspection will identify any inefficiencies (such as air leaks) that exist in your system, and make sure your system only costs you what it should takes to warm your home. This could lead to huge energy savings over the course of a year.

Keeping your system going

Not unlike a well-maintained automobile, prolonging the total life of your heating system requires attention and care. If the cost and hassle of completely replacing your furnace gives you shivers worse than the ones from the cold outside, consider regular maintenance as a way to better your odds of having a longer-lived heating system.

Again, much like an automobile, an aging furnace is going to need more regular maintenance to keep it warming your home efficiently and effectively. Trust in the experts at King to keep your system going longer and help you get the best return on your investment.

Your manufacturer’s warranty

Your furnace may have a manufacturer’s warranty that protects the value of the system and covers necessary repairs. These warranties are valuable, and can save you a ton of money if your furnace breaks down.

In order to maintain it for future years, your warranty may require you to have an annual tune-up through a certified company like King.

How can I be sure I’m getting a good deal?

We want you to consider King Heating and Cooling for your regular furnace maintenance. In addition to our above-and-beyond commitment to service and our 40-point inspection system, we offer tremendous financial value for our customers.

Regular maintenance for a furnace requires experts performing a thorough checkup of the system. King offers you both. Our fully certified technicians perform a 40-point inspection to make sure your unit is running at peak performance, and that you’re getting the best heat for your dollar. Again: we do things this way because we want you to be happy with the comfort of your home, and we’re not done until you’re satisfied with our work.

What is the best time to get my furnace inspected?

Obviously, your furnace sees the most use when it starts to get cold outside. We recommend getting it inspected before this point: you will save the most energy, time, and potential hassle by having your system inspected and maintained prior to the coldest months of the year.

However, if you find yourself in the midst of winter wanting to get your furnace checked, we encourage that, too. There is no wrong time to think ahead and make sure your system passes with flying colors. But, the fall is probably the best time: it allows you to identify any problems before they become problems, and helps to ensure you have a productive and cost-effective system by the time the first snowflakes begin to fall over Chicago.

No matter what season you have your system inspected, we recommend getting it looked at once-a-year. Remember, your furnace’s warranty may require it, and it’s worth the peace of mind.

How do I get in contact with King?

Why you need to schedule a furnace tuneup

A lot of us tend to postpone having a furnace tuneup for as long as possible, thinking it isn’t a big deal. The truth is we’re making things much harder for ourselves in the future. We need to make sure that our furnace is maintained on a regular basis, so that we can count on it to heat us throughout the cold season. 

Why you should schedule a furnace tuneup

The short answer is “if you don’t want to have problems with your heating system, you need to take its maintenance seriously into consideration”.

Think about it: you wouldn’t want to see your heating system break down in the middle of a cold winter night and leave you freezing at home, would you? You wouldn’t want to find yourself frantically searching for help at a time when you are super busy with other obligations, and the services are all too busy to help at moment’s notice.

Keeping everyone in your home healthy

If you have a heating furnace, you probably know that it’s based on fossil fuel which can be very dangerous. It omits harmful gases, such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane. These gases can be fatal to humans and living beings in general. Fortunately, heating furnaces are designed very well, so they release all gases outside your home.

But, what happens if a gas stays in your home? All it takes is minor damage for your furnace to cause leakage of harmful gases inside your home. The result is an unhealthy environment which can seriously put your life at risk.

If you schedule a furnace tuneup, HVAC experts will check the heating system and make sure that you and your family are safe. You may even end up buying a new furnace, but one thing you should remember is that you must take it seriously with something as priceless as the health of your loved ones.

Decreasing the chances of a complete breakdown

You can stop your heating system from completely breaking down if you make furnace tuneups an annual thing. Every system, no matter how new it is, can break down when you least want it to. However, hiring HVAC experts can prevent this from happening, since they will be able to detect any potential issues in advance.

Bear in mind that some issues are more difficult to fix when the weather is cold. So, why not hire a company while the weather is still warm? Research has shown that the most common reason for heating system breakdowns are dust and dirt. So, call the best HVAC company in your area and have your furnace cleaned in time.

By hiring technicians to clean your furnace, you will also make sure that its airflow is improved. The job of any good heating technician is to ensure that the heating system is receiving proper airflow. That way, the chances of a breakdown are slim to none.

Keeping your energy costs down

If the heating system runs properly, it’s working at optimum capacity. Therefore, you won’t be unpleasantly surprised by high electricity bills. On the other hand, if the furnace runs poorly, it may require more energy or resources, thus your budget will suffer.

So even though it may seem that you are spending extra money on a furnace tuneup, you are actually saving money in the long run. If you do the calculations, it’s clear that it’s much more reasonable to schedule an annual furnace tuneup or small repairs, than to pay high electricity bills every month. Believe it or not, 46% of a family’s budget goes to electricity bills during the heating (or cooling) season.

Having your furnace maintained regularly is of crucial importance

Increasing the life cycle of the furnace

Once you invest money in something as important as a heating system, you will not want to change it for years to come. That’s why you need to make sure it works properly at all times. How can you do that? By making the system’s maintenance a regular task, of course!

Research shows that replacing a heating system may cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000, depending on the size of your home. Are you willing to spend so much money without considering other options first? If you schedule an annual furnace tuneup, you are making sure that you won’t be replacing the heating system anytime soon.

Also, if you maintain the heating system properly, you will not void its warranty. Most manufacturers state that if the system is not maintained well, the warranty is no longer valid.

Saving time

If you schedule a furnace tuneup right away, you will save a lot of time when the heating season starts. You will be certain that your heating system works properly and there won’t be any unpleasant surprises during the busiest time of the year – the winter holidays. The time reserved for your family shouldn’t be spent frantically searching for HVAC companies at the last minute. Keep your loved ones warm for the Holidays by getting it all handled ahead of time.
