Centreville, VA Heating Services
Heater Technicians You Can Trust in Northern Virginia
You can avoid some pretty expensive heating troubles when you have your system inspected yearly, or at the first sign of a problem. While keeping up with at-home inspections, filter changes, and debris removal will help reduce those costly repairs, you'll need to complement these efforts with professional maintenance and service calls for the strongest prevention methods.
What Is Included in Our Heater Inspections?
Our heating inspections are thorough and our contractors will be looking at every working component to ensure cleanliness and functionality.
At SSI, we offer a HVAC Membership that includes two maintenance visits a year, so that our heating service technicians can check your safety controls, coils, vent systems, checking for gas leaks, and so much more to make sure your system stays in working condition. Many people will wait until the HVAC system has failed in some way before calling a pro in for an inspection.
If you've noticed it isn't performing as well as it has in the past, or you see signs like your energy bill gradually rising, you can still benefit from keeping your system maintained.
Increase Your Heater's Efficiency
When our heating contractors complete any heating inspections, they look for ways to improve the efficiency of your unit and your indoor air quality as well. The primary goal is always to get your unit running at peak condition, so that you require fewer repairs in the future.
If you have a much older model, the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option will sometimes be to get a new heating system instead of continuing with multiple repairs down the road. Your heating contractor will be able provide sound advice on the best efficiency options, so that you can make a confident and informed decision that works for your budget.
Do You Need to Replace Your Heating System?
If so, are you wondering which one to choose? There are so many different options on the market that you’d be excused for not knowing where to start. Ask yourself a few simple questions when making your decision.
How long do I plan to stay in my current house?
According to several sources, if you’re planning to remain in your home for at least another five years, you should spend a little extra to invest in a furnace that is measured at 95% efficiency (as opposed to the slightly less expensive 80% efficiency units). While you’re paying more up front, the money you save in energy bills over the next several years will undoubtedly pay the difference!
How big is my house?
The size of your home will dictate the size of the heating system that you need. The last thing you want to do is invest in a unit that is too large for your needs – you’ll end up spending more money than you need to. A Michigan State University article on the subject states that the best way to purchase a properly sized system is to calculate your home’s heating requirements by having a heat load calculation performed on your home. Your best bet is to ask a qualified contractor to help you with this.
What type of fuel should I use?
This answer depends on what type of system your home was designed with. As well as if your home is supplied with Propane, Oil, Natural Gas, or Electric. There are several ways to heat your home, some more efficient than others, talk with a qualified contractor to find which system is best for your home, even exploring to opportunity to heat your home with a Dual Fuel system!
Do I have a reliable contractor?
Choosing the right contractor is every bit as important as choosing the right heating system. You want a company that’s honest, trustworthy, and prompt. Ask around for recommendations, and take your time choosing the best contractor for your needs. Your family’s comfort in the cold winter months might just depend on it!
