Does your B&L Ott HVAC system need routine maintenance? Every home and its air system can benefit from regular upkeep. A thorough inspection will help you find small problems before they become expensive repairs. So, what can you expect when you schedule B&L Ott’s preventive maintenance service?
If dirt gets into the functional areas of your system, it can cause problems that decrease the efficiency of your machine. Decreased efficiency means higher energy bills. That is why B&L Ott starts by carefully removing harmful debris. Unlike other companies in the Berks County area, our service includes coil cleaning as a standard! The coil handles heat transfer and is crucial for maintaining an operational system.
We also perform a diagnostic evaluation to determine the health of your system. We will estimate the remaining life expectancy based on the condition and age of the parts. One of our technicians will also teach you how to optimize the use, comfort and efficiency of your system. If your system is nearing the end of its life, they will also help you plan and budget for a replacement.
Our diagnostic evaluation helps ensure your family’s safety. During your appointment, B&L Ott performs a variety of tests (including a carbon monoxide test) to check for potential gas leaks. The critical components of your HVAC system will also be inspected to verify that your heater is safe to use.
When it comes to maintaining an HVAC system, B&L Ott believes that there is a right way and a wrong way. Any inferior form of maintenance is completely ineffective. There are many different styles of “maintenance programs” out there. We make sure that our examination is thorough and honest.
We will test every component in your system down to the outdoor air conditioner coil. You won’t find an asterisk in our program. We take various measurements to verify that each part is operating inside of design parameters. Some measurements include amp draw, voltage, microfarads, megohms, airflow, temperatures, pressures, and sound. These tests help us pinpoint problems and determine which factors need attention.
After performing tests and maintenance, we can predict potential future failures. We will discuss our findings with you. Then a B&L Ott technician will make professional recommendations to keep your system running efficiently. Be prepared to answer a few questions about HVAC usage. Examples include,
- Are you comfortable in every room of your house?
- Are you suffering from any allergies or breathing conditions?
These questions will help determine if your needs are being met by your current system. Our job is to provide you with your ideal indoor environment.
How Often Should I Schedule Preventive Maintenance?
Preventive Maintenance should be performed annually for all equipment. Typically customers will schedule an appointment in the spring/summer for their air conditioner. Then in fall/winter, they will request service for their heating system. You wouldn’t let your car go without oil changes, tire rotations, and brake replacements. Just like your car, your HVAC system needs regular cleaning and repairs.
Why Should I Schedule Maintenance?
B&L Ott’s service has a variety of benefits. There are no tricks, no clever wording designed to confuse. We provide the most comprehensive maintenance program for the price it costs to do the job right. We will help you effectively condition your home to keep your system running efficiently. This will reduce operating costs, prevent breakdowns, and extend the life expectancy of your system. It will also decrease the overall cost of ownership.
We understand the importance of maintenance. Just like your HVAC system, we use a rigorous schedule to keep our equipment in top shape. Given that we provide an emergency service, our trucks must be reliable. With regular cleaning and servicing, our trucks range in age from 1-12 years old. Each truck typically lasts 250,000 – 300,000 miles in its lifetime. That is with a giant service box on the back and thousands of pounds worth of tools in it. You wouldn’t want a company who constantly had brand new trucks. Yet, you also wouldn’t want a company with a broken down, unreliable truck.
We believe in taking care of our equipment so that our tools work when we need them most. If we have a rigorous maintenance schedule for all of our equipment, what does that tell you about the importance of your HVAC’s preservation? Keep your B&L Ott system running by scheduling routine maintenance from B&L Ott today!
