Q:Why should I have yearly maintenance on my heating system?
A: A yearly tune up is necessary to keep your heating system running at peak efficiency. This will lead to lower energy costs over the life of your system as well as providing for timely replacement of worn parts, which can lead to costly repair bills in the future.
Q: What does your service contract cover?
A:Most parts and labor. Call PFI for further information.
Q: What is the advantage of a having a service contract?
A: Our service contracts provide "peace of mind" that most repair bills will be covered, and a yearly tune up is included in the contract price. This is a cost-effective way to assure yourself of worry-free heating and yearly maintenance. Without regular servicing, heating and cooling systems burn more fuel and are more likely to break down. With the proper attention, they can keep you comfortable year-round.
Heat pumps and oil-fired furnaces and boilers need a yearly professional tune-up. Gas-fired equipment burns cleaner; it should be serviced every other year. A close inspection will uncover leaks, soot, rust, rot, corroded electrical contacts and frayed wires. In furnace (forced-air) and boiler (hot-water) systems, the inspection should also cover the chimney, ductwork or pipes, dampers or valves, blower or pump, registers or radiators, the fuel line and the gas meter or oil tank — as well as every part of the furnace or boiler itself.
Next, the system should be run through a full heating cycle to ensure that it has plenty of combustion air and chimney draft. Contractors use smoke pencils to check for sufficient draft and also test the air for carbon monoxide.
Finally, it’s time for the down and dirty task of cleaning the burner and heat exchanger to remove soot and other gunk that can impede smooth operation. For the burner, efficiency hinges on adjusting the flame to the right size and color, adjusting the flow of gas or changing the fuel filter in an oil-fired system. A check of the heat pump should include an inspection of the compressor, fan, indoor and outdoor coils and refrigerant lines. Indoor and outdoor coils should be cleaned, and the refrigerant pressure should be checked. Low pressure indicates a leak; to locate it, contractors feed tinted refrigerant into the loop and/or go over it with an electronic detector.
