Why Regular Maintenance Is Important
Unfortunately, every heater will break down at some point and require repairs. Your heater works a lot like your car. If your car doesn’t have its oil changed or parts inspected, then it will eventually stop working. Like all things in life, it is less expensive to prevent a problem from happening than fixing the problem once it occurs. Be prepared for the cold this winter with a precision heater maintenance tune-up today!

Your heating system will be less likely to have an unexpected breakdown which we all know inevitably occurs at the most inconvenient time. You can protect your unit by having it tuned-up and inspected at least once a year by the highly trained HVAC technicians at Gold Star.

A failing heater can do a lot more than hurt your wallet because of necessary repairs. It can also put you and your family’s life in danger. A crack in the heat exchanger can cause carbon monoxide to build up inside of your home. On average carbon monoxide is responsible for sending 50,000 people to the emergency room every year and also causes many deaths.

Your heater will be able to warm up your home and use less energy if it receive annual heater maintenance from Gold Star.

We also service heaters that are powered by oil, gas, propane and electricity.
Gas, Electric & Oil Furnaces
Your furnace is usually a part of the central air conditioning system. The furnace works by moving the warm air through the ductwork. If there is a problem with the heat exchanger, ductwork, ventilation pipes and burner, then the HVAC technicians at Gold Star can help.
Heat pumps have the ability to both warm and cool your home. A heat pump does require maintenance just like any other type heating system. Our HVAC technicians can fix any issues with the expansion valve, condenser, pump, evaporator or any of the other parts.
Radiant Heat Boilers
Radiant heat boilers are a popular choice because water has the ability to store heat. Depending on your needs, we can fix problems with the heat exchanger, combustion chamber, burner, controls, exhaust stack, and more to ensure your home remains warm this winter.
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits do not utilize the ductwork in your home. However, there are many parts that have to work together in order to properly heat and cool your property. Call us if your indoor air handler, outdoor compressor, or outdoor condenser are not working.
