Heater Maintenance

Keep the Heat Turned Up with One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning

Are you over the temperature outdoors matching the one indoors? We don't blame you! Not only does an inefficient heater make your space uncomfortable, things can become unsafe if your entire heating system goes out. Way more than a simple inconvenience if you ask us!

But don't worry – One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning is here to ensure your home remains reliable and comfortable even during the coldest months with professional heater maintenance from a team of HVAC experts. Our comprehensive home heater maintenance solutions are designed to address any issues with your heating system, ensuring optimal performance and safeguarding your family from the perils of uneven airflow and undesirable temperatures. We'll arrive in a yellow truck (instead of on a white horse) regularly to rescue you from uneven airflow, undesirable temperatures, and anything else making you freeze your socks off!

Why is Heater Maintenance Important?

Whether you own a home or manage a business, the heater in your space needs regular maintenance to ensure it's going to work when you need it to – and work properly at that. Having your residential or commercial heater receive routine maintenance from a One Hour professional allows you to benefit from several things.

Equipment Protection and Extending the Life of Your Heater

We want to extend the life of your equipment. Routine heater maintenance can make that happen. The amount of regular, preventive maintenance will ultimately determine how long your home's heater will last, so don't delay calling our team and scheduling your next maintenance appointment – and the one after that.

Energy Savings and the Efficiency of Your Heater

Who doesn't like saving a few bucks here and there – especially on utilities? With our help, we can make sure your system continues working at peak performance for the comfort of your home and wallet! Heating systems that have been well-maintained simply work more efficiently , lowering your operating costs down and saving you money every month.

Saves You on Repairs

Heater maintenance can help you save on repairs, performing them early on – while they're still minor - before they evolve into major, more expensive issues. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning 's Comfort Club can also help you save even more by providing a discount on certain repairs and products to ensure you're covered.

Ensure Top-Notch Air Quality

Your home's air quality is essential. Not only for your home's livability and overall comfort, but for your health. When dust, pollen, mold, and other airborne debris floats into your home, they end up getting trapped into your system and cycling through your home. Our maintenance service will ensure the filter is replaced and the system is cleaned out, leaving your indoor air quality better than we found it.

Overall Comfort, Safety and Peace of Mind

Heater maintenance isn't just about the savings and quality air – even though we would agree that those are nice perks!

Heater maintenance is about your peace of mind. Peace of mind that your home's heating system will remain comfortable, safe, and in good condition as temperatures begin to drop, no matter how low. With One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, your system has the continued support it needs to stay reliable throughout the year, working the exact way it should and taking the stress out of HVAC.

Our Heater Maintenance Checklist

We've been doing this for a while, so we've created and fine tuned our heater maintenance checklist. This checklist, along with our HVAC technicians' quick thinking and expert knowledge, allows us to deliver the best maintenance service possible.


Proper airflow is key to keeping your home heated evenly. Our team will clean, replace your filter, and make any other changes needed to ensure proper airflow throughout the rooms in your home.

Gas Line

Our team will inspect the gas line connection and nearby lines to ensure your system is free of any type of leaks or other signs of concern, keeping your family safe and healthy.

Heat Exchangers

The heat exchanger is the star of the show, and without a properly working one, you'll know why. Before that happens, our team will ensure it's free of cracks and in good condition. If it needs service, we'll let you know.


If your heater's heat exchanger is the star, your burner is the entire supporting cast. Dirty burners will reduce the efficiency of your heating system, but our team can handle the cleaning, so you don't have to.

Electrical Connections

Any electrical connections to your heater need to be inspected just to make sure they're free of damage or other signs of concern. This protects against electrical fires and guarantees a reliable power connection.

Condensate Drain Clogs

The condensate drain helps your heater to drain excess condensation away from your home. If this is clogged, it can cause your furnace to stop working and even flood! Our team clears and cleans away any debris, ensuring smooth flowing.

Safety Controls

It's unsafe to allow your safety controls to go unchecked. Who would have thought? Our team will make sure the flame sensor, carbon monoxide detectors, and other automatic safety features are working.

Lubricate Mechanical Parts

Lubrication helps all the mechanical parts of your system work together with ease. We'll clean and oil the most important parts of your heater, from the motor to the fan.

Thermostat Settings

The correct temperature and thermostat settings go a long way, especially when it's only 20 degrees outside. We'll make sure your programming system and thermostat-related settings are calibrated correctly.

Belt Replacement

Our team will make sure to check your belt for signs of aging, cracks, and possible fraying. To keep it from deciding to snap when you need it most, our team can replace the heater's belt to make sure it's ready to roll – and roll again.

Testing and More

On top of each heater component we check, we'll complete a system test to ensure everything is working as efficiently as possible. We won't leave until this is done and it passes our set of standards.

You're working with experts-in-training, so it's safe to say that our team is qualified to handle any type of tune-up, repair, or replacement you need during your next heater maintenance.

How Often Should I Service My Heating System?

It's recommended to service your heating system at least once a year before the chilly weather rolls in. In some cases, such as a furnace, you may want service done twice a year to ensure complete peace of mind. When it comes to heat pumps used year-round, it's best to have these serviced once every six months.

With the help of One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we'll create the best plan for your system and your unique situation.

Types of Heating Systems We Tune Up

Due to our decades of experience and team of qualified technicians, we're able to inspect and tune up just about any heating system in the home, including:


Boilers are common in the United States due to their energy-efficient operations and comfortable radiant heat by heating up and sending water throughout the home. Whether you utilize your home's boiler to heat your home or as a source for hot water, our team will make sure that every component is working correctly.


You also may have a gas or electric furnace that heats your home instead. This heating system uses gas or electricity to heat your home and is commonly the centerpiece of most modern central heating units. These produce high amounts of heat and require frequent maintenance to ensure proper flow and heating of all the connected rooms.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are centralized, forced air systems that act as a heater and an air conditioner for your home. This simple solution provides an easy way to avoid installing two separate units for your home's heating and cooling. Plus, heat pumps burn zero fossil fuels, helping you do your part in protecting the environment.

Eco-Friendly Geothermal Heating Solutions

Another eco-friendly and cost-efficient heating system we service is geothermal heating. Instead of being physically next to or in your home, they're installed deep underground. They're able to provide heating and cooling by relying on Earth's temperatures instead of extra energy to warm or cool the air. Our team provides the maintenance needed to ensure your geothermal heating is ready to be used at a moment's notice.

Heater Maintenance Cost

The price for heater maintenance ranges anywhere from $100 to $300. The exact price of your heater maintenance depends on many things, including the age of your unit, the last time it was serviced, and any necessary repairs that need to be made.

While this isn't as straightforward of an answer as you may have hoped for, you can call the team at your local One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to learn more about current heater maintenance pricing!

Heating System Experts You Can Trust

Your home's heating system is complex. Instead of searching for DIY guides online on how to perform your maintenance, trusting your neighbor Gary, or just ignoring it and praying that it works this winter, turn to a team you know you can trust. Our team has decades of experience working on countless heating systems, just like yours, all backed by competitive prices and honest work.

Highly Trained and Reliable Heater Technicians

We call them "technicians." But they're more like artists, painting the perfect setting for your family to relax in. And while the majority of them have at least a decade of experience in the field, we have them continue their training – looking for more ways to perfect their craft and deliver even better services to our customers.
