The Benefits of Routine Maintenance for Toledo Area Homeowners

Whether you have a gas furnace, a boiler, or a heat pump, as your heating system is used day after day, year after year, components will wear and efficiency will gradually decrease. Routine maintenance, such as changing air filters or cleaning burners, can help to slow this process and provides several benefits, including:

  • Greater efficiency: By cleaning the system, lubricating components, replacing worn parts, and making adjustments, your heating system can run more efficiently, reducing your energy usage.
  • Reduced utility costs: By reducing energy usage, your heating costs will also be reduced, without sacrificing comfort.
  • Improved comfort: A system that is properly cleaned, lubricated, and adjusted can provide better heating performance and indoor air quality.
  • Fewer repairs: During the maintenance process, potential problems can be found early, avoiding further system damage and unnecessary repair costs.
  • Longer system life: By performing regular maintenance, you can prevent problems and unnecessary wear, extending the service life of the system.

At Kellermeier Plumbing & Heating, our team can perform all the maintenance required for your system, as recommended by the manufacturer. We offer maintenance services as needed, as well as ongoing maintenance through one of our convenient maintenance plans.
