Makes Sure Your HVAC System is Working Right

If you don’t check your heater before you go to use it on the first cold morning of the season, you may get an unpleasant surprise when it doesn’t work. Getting your heater checked out regularly will ensure that it will work when you need it so you’re not stuck in a cold house.

Keeps the Air Clean

Your heater system will collect things like mold, dust, and dirt when it’s not being used during the spring and summer, and you don’t want to have unclean air pumped through your house when you turn the heat on. Having your HVAC system cleaned and replacing your air filter will make sure you’re only getting clean air flowing through your house.

Keeps Your Heater in Good Shape

The better shape your heater is in, the longer it will last. Heater maintenance will make sure everything is running properly and getting any parts cleaned up or replaced to keep your heater running as long as possible.

Saves You Money

Heater maintenance will actually save you money. If you get it regularly checked out and cleaned, your heater will last much longer and you won’t have to spend a lot of money to replace it every few years. It also saves you money on your energy bills because your heater won’t have to work extra hard with parts breaking or air filters filled up.

Protects You from Fire Hazards

Heaters that are broken or not cleaned can be fire hazards. Broken parts in your heater can cause it to overheat, and having dirt and dust buildup can cause it to overwork. Heater maintenance can fix these problems before it’s too late.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”
