Certified, quality service is very important for the overall health and functionality of your furnace, air conditioner or other heating and cooling appliances. Like you service your automobile regularly, so should you service your heating and cooling equipment. We service American Standard equipment previously installed, or that we've installed as well as your current equipment not previously installed by Twin Cities. Regular service ensures that your equipement is running at it's best ability, which not only lengthens the life of the appliance, but also saves you money.
When to Service Your FurnaceThe time of year has no bearing on the performance of your heating system. The most important element is consistency. Although during the warm months, you benefit because you aren't relying on the furnace or heat pump to heat your home. Warning signs of needing service you should look out for include:
- Uneven temperature throughout the home
- Unusual noises or rattling coming from the unit
- The furnace constistently running
- Cool air being forced through the vents
- Higher than usual utility bills
If you suspect there’s problems with your heating system, don’t delay. Contact someone at Twin Cities right away. Heating problems don’t get better on their own, and letting your home heating system run when it’s not operating properly can create larger issues – even fire! Your home is too important to put on the line!
When to Service Your Air Conditioning System or Heat PumpLike with auto repairs, you can pay a little now for routine service, or pay much more later for a major repair. The same idea holds true for your air conditioner or heatpump.If you don't service your air conditioner or heat pump regularly, you'll find yourself uncomfortable and broke.
An air conditioner is a very tough piece of equipment. It is engineered to withstand all sorts of abuse and keep on running. This is great in most respects, but it can lead to complacency about maintenance. Like a car, air conditioners need regular tune-ups to run properly. Things to watch for are:
- A reduction in cooling performance
- The air conditioner runs almost continuously, even when cooling needs are low
- Unusual or excessive noises coming from either the indoor or outdoor cooling unit
- Your air conditioning unit turns on and off frequently, or the electrical circuit breaker and fuses continually short out
- The amount of air flow coming from your air conditioning vents is decreasing
- There is water leaking from your air conditioner or ice is forming on the unit
