What would you do if you wake up at 2 AM and it is freezing cold outside and inside too? You will want to call for heating service that always has a real person answer the phone 24/7. You also want a company that has no extra charges for weekends and night calls. To avoid emergencies in the future, the company ought to offer a comprehensive service agreement on your HVAC system. Service agreements typically offer priority service on your equipment, cash discounts, extended warranties, and of course peace of mind. These agreements are available for both heating and Air conditioning repair in Orland Park. The plan ensures increased equipment safety and efficiency, and it will extend the lifespan of your system.
For the HVAC service agreement, a technician inspects the equipment once or twice a year for proper operation. The tech will probably come out in the spring before the heat of summer sets in to make sure that the air conditioning is up to its peak performance. He will again visit in the fall to make sure that the heating equipment is running as it should. This is a great way for the tech to identify and repair any small problems before they escalate into large — and expensive — problems. You will be provided with a written analysis of what the tech finds during his inspection. You will also receive recommendations to improve the efficiency and safety of your HVAC system.
A good service or maintenance agreement consists of a precision tune up and a professional cleaning of the system. The thermostat will be cleaned and calibrated. Thermostats are known to cause problems if they are not level, and the calibration may be affected by dust and dirt. The tech will also wash the condenser coil and air filters, and he will vacuum clean all flue, blower, and combustion compartments. The heat exchangers, burners and pilot assemblies will also be cleaned and inspected. All moving parts will be lubricated, and all pulleys and drive belts will be adjusted. The maintenance tech will test safety controls, humidifier operation, motors, capacitors, and he will test for the presence of poisonous carbon monoxide gas and gas leaks at furnace. This service will pay for itself in lower energy bills that are enjoyed when your system is working at peak efficiency.
