Did You Know?

Studies suggest that 9 out of 10 HVAC system failures are caused by dirt and dust.

It’s easy to forget or neglect our heating and air conditioning system. Usually, the indoor and outdoor components are out of normal every day sight, when we adjust the thermostat – the system responds and many homeowners understandably take for granted that it simply works like any other appliance and needs no up keep.

However, your heating and air conditioning system does need annual preventive maintenance by a certified HVAC company to keep the system operating at peak efficiency to reduce energy usage and save you money. In addition, safety controls and fuel supply, poisonous combustion discharge functions and electrical connections need to be thoroughly checked and inspected to ensure safe operation.

Manufacturer, utility company, university and government studies have all concluded that proper maintenance conducted on an annual basis is essential to reducing equipment failure that results in expensive repairs in addition to minimizing energy usage and energy expenditures.

Did You Know?

The average heating and air conditioning system runs for approximately 2,000 hours per year. If you drove your car 45 miles per hour for 2,000 hours, you would drive 90,000 miles. Would you drive 90,000 miles without proper maintenance?

For every 10 minutes a gas furnace operates it unleashes the same energy as 3-1/2 sticks of dynamite. You wouldn’t want to operate such an “explosive” device without ensuring its safe operation annually would you? Don’t you think maintenance is critical for such equipment?

Our expert heating technicians are experienced in performing thorough preventive maintenance on all makes and models of heating systems. They’ll make sure that your heater is functioning properly, that it’s running at peak efficiency and – when necessary – recommend preventive steps to ensure continued reliable heater operation. It doesn’t matter if your system is old or new, if you are looking for routine maintenance or if you’re in need of a major heater repair; One Hour is here to help.

Benefits of Heating System Maintenance

Save On Utility Bills! A properly maintained heating and air conditioning system will cost you less to operate. Some studies suggest a savings of up to 20%!

Reduced Equipment Failure and Increased System Life Span! Regular heating system maintenance reduces the need for emergency repairs and increases the longevity of your heating and air conditioning system. When we perform maintenance work on your heating or air conditioning system, our goal is a simple one – maintain or restore your system as close as possible to manufacturer specifications as it was the day it was built!

Save On Repairs! While preventive maintenance certainly helps to reduce and avoid system failure, some potential issues cannot be detected nor avoided even with the most thorough preventive maintenance. When this happens, maintenance program members receive a significant discount on all heating repairs.

The One Hour maintenance program is designed to help reduce your energy costs and reduce equipment failure. Many independent studies have proven, time and time again, that proper heating and air conditioning maintenance literally pays for itself.

There are 24 problems that cause 99% of all heating system failures. 16 of them can be prevented with proper maintenance.

A blower wheel with lint and dust provides 15-20% less air. The result is lower efficiency. A dirty blower wheel usually indicates a dirty evaporator coil. Clean systems restore capacity and lessen run time, thereby reducing operating costs and extending system life span.

A dirty evaporator coil, condenser coil or blower could increase air conditioning or heat pump electrical usage by 50% or more.

A buildup of just one 100th of an inch of dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%, and 0.042 inches of dirt can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%.

Countless university and utility company studies have shown that homeowners save significant amounts of energy and money when they have regular maintenance and cleaning of their heating systems.
