In the areas we serve, temperatures get cold. There’s no denying that.

Sure, there are some small maintenance tasks you can handle on your own. For example, do you have a clogged air filter in your furnace? This is something you can and should change every 1-3 months. Doing so will prevent the interior components of your furnace form getting pummeled with debris. But for truly thorough maintenance that will make a difference in the performance and longevity of your heater, you’ll want professional service. But what actually happens during this service?
