Winter Heating Maintenance

As your heating system gets older, it can become less efficient and quicker to break down. That’s why it’s important to have frequent tune-ups and maintenance performed on your current system. With appropriate service, you can extend the life of your heater system and avoid costly repairs down the road. Some common heating service jobs include:

  • Inspecting and repair ductwork
  • Post repair inspections
  • Furnace Tune-ups
  • Free estimates and consultations

At Creighton Laircey, we believe in saving you money whenever possible. That is why we recommend having your furnace serviced at least once a year in the fall. Servicing your unit in the autumn has several advantages:

  • It saves you money on expensive repairs in the winter. If you need a new part, it gives your HVAC team time to order and install them before the cold weather sets in.
  • Your system runs more efficiently when it is properly maintained. This saves you money on your energy bills.
  • Having your ductwork clean can improve air quality, which is important when cold and flu season strikes.

We have been serving our customers since 1972, so we know how to get the job done quickly and professionally. When you choose Creighton Laircey, you are getting the expertise of certified technicians, who know how to save you money on unnecessary repair costs. Call us to schedule your furnace tune-up or heat pump maintenance. We proudly serve the Central Savannah River Area.

Why is my upstairs so much warmer than my downstairs?

hvac-warmer-upstairsIf you have a tri level home or a two story home, this is an issue that you may encounter especially if your home and/or hvac unit is older.

Often times homeowners think that the best way to fix the situation is to close off air ducts to certain rooms with the hope of “pushing” cooler air upstairs.  The problem is when you do that, you actually end up altering the system in such a way that causes more issues.  Your HVAC system was designed to move a certain amount of air across the cooling coil and through the ducts.  When you close off registers, that cuts down on the airflow across the cooling coil, and does more harm than good in the long run.

There are a number of solutions to explore and consider when looking at balancing the overall air quality and temperature in your home.  It could be an issue of the ductwork having a poor design or just not being adequate, your attic insulation may need to be addressed, or it may be that your current hvac unit needs to be serviced to help properly cool your home.

We would be happy to schedule a visit to come out and evaluate your current system.  After we have had a chance to look over your hvac system setup, then we can make a recommendation on what most effective and efficient solution(s) would be for your home.
