Residents of Aspen Hill know that their heating appliances don’t just provide comfort during the harsh winter months, but they can also be lifesaving for many people when temperatures drop below freezing. A reliable furnace, stove, boiler, or heat pump becomes one of the most invaluable appliances in your home as the winter months drag on. The experts at Buric Heating and Air can help ensure you survive this next winter with a safe and dependable heat source.
The best time to have your units checked is before the weather gets cold. Whether you need maintenance, repair, or replacement, Buric Heating and Air Technicians can make sure your home is set to keep you as warm as possible this winter. Learn more about our expert and reliable services below.
Regular maintenance can help your heating appliance last as long as possible. Even with the best care, however, parts wear out over time and your unit will need eventual replacement. A heating and air professional technician can help you stay on top of minor repairs and alert you when it is getting close to needing a replacement unit.
With yearly inspections, a furnace can have a lifespan of up to 20 years. Heat pumps have an average lifespan of 15 years, while homeowners can expect 15-20 years use out of their fireplace inserts and stoves. In addition to extending an appliance’s usefulness, regular maintenance can also help increase efficiency, protect parts from wearing out too quickly, and keep homeowners safe while the appliance is in operation.
During a maintenance inspection, your Buric technician will thoroughly inspect the internal parts, clean the mechanics of the unit, and perform minor repairs as needed. All of these steps help your unit run at top performance this winter season. If any major repairs or replacements are required, we will provide you with a variety of options so you can make an informed decision and choose the best course of action for you and your family.
Nobody wants to hear that their heating appliance needs repair. However, some parts will need eventual repair or replacement to keep the unit in operation. Like a vehicle, some minor repairs can help the unit keep going and aren’t very expensive. You may have to replace burnt wires or worn-out mechanics over your unit’s lifespan.
Other repairs may not be worth performing if your unit is close to the end of its life or if the repairs will cost more than half of your unit’s worth. If your unit keeps needing repairs, it may also be worth it to replace rather than keep repairing over time. A knowledgeable professional can help you weigh the cost and benefits of repair versus replacement.
You may need a repair if you experience any of the following:
- Higher than normal energy bills.
- Poor airflow from vents.
- Strange noises or smells are coming from units or vents.
- Home never gets warm enough for your comfort.
- Simply doesn’t turn on.
Replacement and Installation
When you are ready to upgrade or replace your current heating unit, a qualified Buric professional can walk you through your options and help you choose the best unit for your home. If you want to upgrade to a more efficient system or install ductwork throughout the home, our experts will inspect your home to ensure the construction can support these upgrades. They will provide you with an accurate estimate of installation no matter what system you choose.
You may also need to replace your current heating appliance if you recently completed an addition to your home. The new square footage may be too much for your unit to handle, and an overworked heating appliance tends to wear out much quicker and struggle to supply enough heat for the whole home. An accurate home measurement from a Buric professional can help you determine if an upgrade is necessary for your space.
Sometimes repairs can’t wait until standard business hours. Whether you have a need late at night or on the weekend, we will be there to help get your heating back to normal again. Call us the next time you experience a heating failure emergency.
