Furnace Service and Maintenance
Sudden breakdowns are not only inconvenient (especially when it’s really cold), but can mean expensive furnace repairs. The best way to guard against these unexpected costs is our AtlasCare Service Program.
At AtlasCare, we care for your heating and cooling system as though it is our own. We conduct preventative maintenance to fix potential problems before they lead to an emergency furnace breakdown. Your family can enjoy the safety and security of a smooth-running forced air heating system all season long.
When it comes to furnace maintenance, you want to make sure your pipes, safety switches, venting, and flame sensing equipment are checked on an annual basis to ensure your forced air heating system is operating at peak performance. Your air conditioner and other heating and cooling equipment also requires yearly maintenance to perform at its best.
Having furnace maintenance and service conducted by AtlasCare each year is one of the safest things you can do for your family. Both of our Protection Plans include a visit from a qualified AtlasCare Home Comfort Specialist at least once a year to inspect your furnace, air conditioner, and other home comfort equipment.
A neglected furnace can put your family at considerable risk:
- It could break down entirely and leave you in the cold.
- A broken-down furnace could cause your home’s water pipes to freeze, costing you thousands of dollars in major renovations.
- Poorly maintained piping could crack causing a dangerous carbon monoxide leak in your home.
- Neglect creates more wear-and-tear on systems creating a significant risk of fire.
