HVAC Maintenance – 3 Reasons to Beat the Heat, (before it gets here!)

Posted by Jaclyn Thomas on Thursday, March 30, 2017

  1. SAVE ENERGY – Your heating and cooling system accounts for almost 50 percent of your energy costs in your home.* Keeping your HVAC system maintained will help keep your energy bills from going through the roof! You can save up to 15% a month on your energy bills when your unit is properly maintained.**
  2. INCREASE LIFESPAN – Would you really dream of never getting the oil changed or the tires rotated on your car? Getting a tune-up on your system is just as important!! You can greatly extend the lifespan of your HVAC unit if it is maintained properly.optimized-beat-the-heat
  3. REDUCE COSTLY REPAIRS & SYSTEM BREAK DOWNS – Waiting until something goes wrong can be quit costly. A small issue may not disable your system, but may ultimately lead to a larger more costly problem. Planned maintenance
    is much cheaper than emergency maintenance!!  For Emergency Service call us at 317-859-4270.

When you schedule a furnace tune up, our technicians at Peterman will clean out your furnace which will make it run more efficiently saving you money on your energy bills. Unfortunately, not everyone remembers or finds time to have the furnace maintained so we often run into the same repairs.

1. Thermostat Calls for Heat and Tells Furnace to Light
2. Draft Inducer Spins Up and Prepares the Unit to Light
3. Safety Checks Are Performed to Make Sure the Furnace is Safe to Light
4. Pilot, Ignitor, or Thermocouple Energizes to Set Temperature and Awaits Fuel to Ignite (Ignitor is Most Common Furnace Part Failure)
