Professional Furnace Maintenance Services, Tunes ups, and Inspections

If you want your HVAC system to take care of you when the temperature drops, you must first take care of your furnace. Every winter, your heating system becomes one of the most important appliances in your home. Regular maintenance is the best way to care for the furnace in your Maryland home or business. 

Annual furnace maintenance allows your furnace to work at peak efficiency year in and year out – and saves you money with lower utility costs. Choose Grove Heating & Cooling to perform the regular furnace maintenance service you require at an affordable price. When you do, you’ll be drawing on our 50+ years of experience serving communities from our Crofton, Maryland headquarters.

Do I Need a Furnace Tune Up Every Year?

Absolutely! Furnace maintenance tune ups should be performed once per year, ideally before peak heating season. Crofton, MD, homeowners and commercial business owners will be turning on the heat after their heaters sit idle for months. This is when the most strain is put on the unit and when breakdowns occur most. If furnace maintenance is done prior to this time, you’ll likely face fewer repair issues.

However, even if you’ve already fired up your natural gas furnace for the first time this season, don’t skip on furnace tune ups! There are many benefits to furnace tune ups and furnace inspections for your Crofton home’s heating unit. For example, annual furnace maintenance performed by a qualified HVAC contractor from Grove Heating and Cooling will keep warranties intact, uncover signs of excess wear and tear to avoid potential furnace repair service down the road, increase the efficiency of your heating system, and extend the lifespan of your equipment.

Additionally, changing your heating and cooling system’s air filter regularly is one of the easiest ways to prevent untimely breakdowns, reduce furnace maintenance costs, and ensure your HVAC system runs optimally year-round. Air filters remove impurities such as bacteria, dust, and pet dander to protect your HVAC system and improve the air quality in your home.

Over time, air filters become clogged and dirty, rendering them less effective. It’s important to replace filters about every three months, or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Don’t wait until you’re iced out of efficient heating, call Grove Heating & Cooling to schedule your furnace maintenance appointment now!

Great mechanics, always on time and polite, did superior work with our HVAC system. They came back quickly to make an adjustment when one room was too cold and I haven’t had any problems since. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
