Maintenance

Whether you have recently purchased a new, high-efficiency system, or your system is 20-years-old, it is important to protect your investment and continue to maximize the systems operating efficiency by having it maintained by an experienced and trained technician.  Just like your car, a forced air system needs periodic care to avoid sluggish performance and to prevent costly repairs and downtime.  At BDL Heating & Cooling, we offer seasonal tune-ups, preventative maintenance and filter change programs to help meet these needs.

Below is a sample of the features included in a seasonal tune-up to help ensure that your equipment is running at an optimal performance level, increasing your comfort and saving you money on energy costs, repairs and downtime.

*This chart serves as a sample of the services provided. Additional services are often included based on the type of equipment being maintained. 

In addition to offering regular maintenance, we also provide options for duct sealing and inspection. Common duct problems include leaky, torn and disconnected ducts, poorly sealed registers and grills, leaks at the equipment or filter slot, and kinks in flexible ductwork.  These problems can reduce efficiency by more than 20%. Solving these problems will not only save you on energy costs, but will also increase your comfort. If you have an area of the house that is always too cold/warm, or if you notice air leaking from your ductwork, call us today for a consultation.
