Furnace Maintenance: Keep Your Home Safe and Comfortable

You rely on your gas or oil furnace to keep your home comfortable and safe when temperatures drop. However, without regular maintenance, your heater may fail to operate efficiently or even break down entirely, leaving you in the cold. 

At Tanous Heating and Cooling, we offer professional heater maintenance services to ensure your heating system remains reliable throughout the year.

Why is Heater Maintenance Important?

Regular heater maintenance offers several benefits, including:

  • Equipment Protection and Extended Lifespan - Routine maintenance can extend the lifespan of your heating equipment. Our team of HVAC experts can perform regular maintenance to help ensure that your heater lasts as long as possible, so you won't have to worry about costly replacements.
  • Energy Savings and Improved Efficiency - Regular maintenance ensures that your heating system is operating at peak efficiency, lowering your monthly operating costs and saving you money on energy bills.
  • Cost Savings on Repairs - Early detection of minor issues during maintenance appointments can help you avoid costly repairs in the future. Our Comfort Club program can help you save even more by providing discounts on certain repairs and products to ensure you're covered.
  • Improved Air Quality - Maintenance services ensure that the filter is replaced and the system is cleaned out, leaving your indoor air quality better than we found. Improved air quality promotes a healthy living environment for you and your family.
  • Overall Comfort, Safety, and Peace of Mind - Regular maintenance ensures that your home's heating system remains in good condition, providing overall comfort, safety, and peace of mind, no matter how low temperatures drop.

How often should a furnace be serviced?

Generally, a furnace should be serviced at least once a year to ensure optimal performance. This is important for maintaining your furnace's efficiency, as well as for your safety. An annual furnace service should include checking the thermostat and controls, cleaning the furnace and chimney, inspecting the heat exchanger, and monitoring combustion safety. It is also recommended that you change your air filter regularly to help maintain the good air quality in your home.

The ideal time for furnace maintenance service is before you run your system daily when the temperatures drop in New Jersey. The best time for a furnace tune-up is usually during the end of summer and the beginning of fall. By getting a furnace tune-up before winter sets in, you can ensure your system is ready to support your comfort needs during the cold season!

How do I know when my furnace needs maintenance?

As a homeowner, you rely on your furnace to keep your home comfortable and warm during the colder months. However, like any other appliance in your home, your furnace can break down and require repairs. But how do you know when your furnace needs maintenance? Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Strange Noises: If your furnace makes unusual noises such as grinding, squeaking, or banging, it could be a sign that something is not working correctly. These sounds could result from a loose or broken component within the furnace.
  • Uneven Heating: If you notice some rooms in your home are colder than others, it could indicate that your furnace needs to be heating your home evenly. A clogged air filter or a faulty thermostat could cause this problem.
  • Constant Running or Frequent Cycling: If your furnace runs constantly or cycles on and off frequently, it could be a sign of a problem with the system. A faulty thermostat, a clogged air filter, or a malfunctioning blower motor could cause this issue.
  • High Energy Bills: If your energy bills have increased dramatically without any explanation, it could be a sign that your furnace is not running efficiently. A clogged air filter, leaky ductwork, or a malfunctioning thermostat could cause an inefficient furnace.

Tanous handled a full HVAC system replacement at my home in Hoboken. The owner personally came out to do the initial assessment and had a quote over to me in under 24 hours. The work started less... than a week later. The crew was on time, worked efficiently, kept me posted throughout, and worked carefully to avoid making a mess. Everything about their service is top notch and professional. Not to mention the quote was significantly less expensive than the other two quotes I received while shopping around.read more

I recommend TANOUS for all your Heating and Air Conditioning needs. The Owner Mike and his team are hands on and work with you every step of the way to get any project you need done efficiently and... resolved in the best way possible. I had a major project to do involving a roof top commercial AC unit replacement on a busy Main Street, which called for a street closure and crane. All the companies I reached out to refused to even take on the job due to its complexity, but Mike took it on and exceeded my expectations. He even quoted me less than some of the companies that refused the job at the end. I've now used TANOUS in projects both Residential & Commercial and could not be happier. Great Company and Great Service... Thanksread more

I would highly recommend them to anyone for any HVAC needs. Thanks again, Tanous!!read more
