Maintenance

HVAC maintenance service.

Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Sussex, WI, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call Interstate Heating Co. to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:

Furnace Maintenance

We highly recommend an annual service tune-up and cleaning for your furnace. Typically the optimum time of year to perform the maintenance is the fall, before you fire up your furnace for the cold weather. The purpose of the service tune-up is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, so you have heat whenever you need it. Our experienced technician will clean and check all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, motors, ducts, valves, and blowers, as well as your ignition assembly, thermostat(s), and smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors. Following your tune-up, our technician will instruct you on anything you could do yourself as maintenance between our service visits. One absolute action you can take is to change your furnace filter with the correct replacement every three months, or as needed. This goes a long way in extending the life of your furnace, as well as keeping your furnace repairs to a minimum and your indoor air quality high.

Boiler Maintenance

When you invest in a boiler system, you want to ensure it warms your home on a continued basis as efficiently as the day it was installed. You also want to do all you can to support the longevity of your system. Proper regular maintenance accomplishes both of these. A boiler is complex and requires a professional hand on an annual basis to clean and check it. During your maintenance service, our professional technicians will clean and check your boiler’s burners, combustion chamber, heat exchanger, controls, vents, tank, pipes, belts, anode rods, connections, drains, linings, and all connected components, as well as your thermostat(s) and smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors. Following your tune-up, our technician will instruct you on anything you could do yourself as maintenance between our service visits. One absolute action you can take is to change your boiler filter with the correct replacement every three months, or as needed. This goes a long way in extending the life of your furnace, as well as keeping your furnace repairs to a minimum and your indoor air quality high.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.

Heat Pump Maintenance

For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.

“We have an annual service contract for our furnace and air conditioner, and this was our first experience with Casey. He is professional, courteous, and thorough. He was a little early for our appointment, which was great. Casey explained what he did with the air conditioner and added refrigerant, with our okay, since it was a little low, although he said it wasn’t an immediate necessity. He also reminded us to be sure to change our furnace filter in the near future. We are very satisfied with Casey’s work. Our goal is to keep our air conditioner and furnace in peak condition, and Casey, as well as the previous Interstate Heating servicemen, have met our expectations. Keep up the good work. Thank you.”

“Jack was very courteous and asked if I had any questions regarding what he was doing. I didn’t appreciate the amount I was billed $155 when I was told when I made the appointment that it would be $99. Office person I made appointment with knew it was maintenance call . It was made maybe 3-4 weeks prior- if service call I would have wanted it as soon as possible.”

“Our service technician, Jack, was prompt and arrived in a neat appearing uniform. He greeted us with a smile and handshake and chatted with us for a few moments about our furnace, and what service he was about to perform. He was police, quiet and diligent, and offered a full explanation of what service he performed. Jack was easy to understand and enjoyable to speak with. He is an excellent ambassador for his profession as well as for the company. We will definitely use Interstate Heating again and ask for Jack to be our service technician. Well done, Jack!”
