Why is regular maintenance important?

Why is it important to have regular maintenance on my home comfort equipment?

We're Glad You Asked!!! 

You wouldn't buy a brand new car and never expect to have to put air in the tires, change the oil, and check out any unusual noises, would you?  Well, in the same way it is important to have regular inspections of your home comfort equipment by a qualified technician.

Just as a well running car can get the best gas mileage and keep you safe on the road, properly running home comfort equipment will run more efficiently and keep you comfortable and safe in your home.

Lennox has some of the best warranties in the business

As a matter of fact, good warranties can make you complacent about the need for regular inspections for your Lennox equipment.  If not regularly inspected and maintained, there are many things which over the years can compromise your comfort equipment's performance and reliability.

Prevent problems before they start

One of the best ways to avoid problems with your home comfort equipment is to prevent them from occuring.  The best way to do that is scheduling regular maintenance.  Your Lennox dealer is highly qualified to maintain all your heating and cooling equipment year round.  Ask your Lennox dealer about his planned service program and head off problems before they start.

Even the best equipment, if not maintained properly can cause problems.  Changes made to your home during remodeling or careless activity can result in kinks, blockages and even leaks in your ductwork which can lead to poor airflow, discomfort and even higher utility bills.

Benefits of Planned Service

Having your equipment serviced on a regular basis has many benefits for you:

  • Regular service lengthens the life of the equipment by keeping it in good working condition.
  • It maintains efficient operation which saves you energy dollars.
  • It will save you money by eliminating costs of needed repairs and reducing any major expenses.
  • It will establish you as a priority customer which you'll appreciate if you've ever needed cooling during the hot days of summer or heating during the coldest blizzard of the year.
  • It assures you of service by experienced and qualified technicians from an established dealership who will be there when you need them.
  • Regular service protects your warranty.

Planned service will help keep your home safe

Carbon Monoxide in your home is an invisible threat to your safety, but it is a threat that is preventable.  Cars and trucks, lawn equipment, water heaters, stoves, clothes dryers, furnaces, space heaters, and other combustion appliances are some of the potential sources of carbon monoxide.  Though designed to be safe and not produce carbon monoxide, home heating systems are only one of the many sources.  In addition negative pressure in your home, coupled with improper combustion, can lead to carbon monoxide entering your living space.  Negative pressure can be caused by central vacuum systems, high volume kitchen range hoods, countertop range exhaust systems, bathroom exhaust fans, and particularly fireplaces which can remove an enourmous amount of air from your home when burning.

Prevention is the most important step to take to reduce carbon monoxide problems.  That's why it is important to schedule annual maintenance visits by a qualified technician to check combustion appliances to make sure they are operating properly and to be sure that all chimneys and vents are connected properly and not blocked.

Complete care offers extended protection

In addition to planned service, your Lennox dealer offers the opportunity for you to purchase additional protection and peace of mind through our Complete Care™ extended protection plan.  This is an extended warranty and does not take the place of planned service.  In fact, to keep this warranty in effect, it is required that your equipment be properly maintained.

That way, with Complete Care protection for the next 5 to 10 years, if your air conditioner goes out on the hottest day of the summer or the coldest day of winter you're covered.  You can rest easy knowing that relief is on the way and you won't have to sweat the bill.

The company you trust

And if you like to think ahead, consider this:  Planned service and an extended warranty can save you money down the road because your costs are fixed.  That's one more reason to trust Lennox and Danny Heineman and Sons, Inc.

For over 100 years people have trusted their home comfort to Lennox.  We've worked hard to earn that trust and we plan to keep it. And we can make you this pledge:  If you place your trust in Lennox, you'll have ... One Less Thing To Worry About.®
