Make Sure Your Heater is Operating Safely
When winter comes to Delaware and Pennsylvania, you can expect cold weather. You should also be able to expect your heater to work correctly, yet many homeowners get caught off guard by a heating system that simply stopped working unexpectedly. Inside temperatures can drop quickly when the weather outside is frigid. Don’t get stuck with a heater that doesn’t work! Gold Star offers heater maintenance provided by experienced technicians you can count on. No matter what type of heater you have, servicing it regularly is essential to keeping it in optimal working condition. A heater tune-up will ensure that your system is energy efficient and reduce the chances of a breakdown. Our expert technicians perform multi-point inspections that catch minor problems before they become big ones.
Do I Need Heater Maintenance?
With regular preventive maintenance, you can reduce the chance of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%. Modern systems have many mechanical parts that require periodic inspection. If some of those parts become cracked or worn, your system could leak dangerous gases inside your home. Starting the annual fall and winter heating season with a maintenance check-up is a great way to keep your heater under warranty too.
Annual heating system maintenance ensures that your family will remain comfortable throughout the cold months ahead while also reducing your carbon footprint with better heating efficiency. Our annual heater maintenance service includes a no-breakdown guarantee that will give you peace of mind.
What to Expect During a Heater Tune-Up?
When one of our technicians comes to your home for a heater tune-up, you can expect a thorough inspection and cleaning of all components, plus testing to ensure that the system is working properly. You can rest assured that our staff will perform a comprehensive inspection and maintenance appropriate for your heating system type. We won’t skip steps or install cheap parts just to save money.

Benefits of a Precision Heater Tune-Up
Sometimes, homeowners don’t want the additional expense of paying for an annual heater tune-up. However, emergency repairs will significantly outweigh the small sum you pay for this service, even if we have to repair something during the appointment. There are many major benefits you’ll enjoy when scheduling annual heating system maintenance from the expert technicians at Gold Star:
Prevent Untimely Breakdowns
Have you ever noticed that heating systems seem to stop working at the most inopportune times? Unexpected breakdowns are stressful because you wonder how long you will be without heat and then worry about the cost. Scheduling a heater tune-up avoids these problems as the expert HVAC technicians at Gold Star will catch minor issues before they turn into big ones.
Ensure a Safe Home
Most homeowners don’t realize how many moving components are part of their heating system. When that system uses fossil fuels, the possibility for adverse conditions increases as carbon monoxide leaks are possible. Our heating technicians will check carbon monoxide levels and ensure your carbon monoxide detector is working correctly. They’ll also inspect all mechanical parts for cracks and loose connections to ensure that all wiring is sound to eliminate potential hazards. A thorough safety check for your heater will give you and your family peace of mind.
Without regular maintenance, your heater won’t work at its ultimate capacity. Every component should function well, no matter its purpose. When every part of your heater operates the way it should, you enjoy benefits like even heating throughout your home, reduced energy consumption, and more. Gold Star’s HVAC technicians will provide a heater tune-up that is second to none, giving you outstanding energy efficiency that translates to more money for you but is also better for the environment. Keep your system in top condition by regularly changing filters and ensuring your thermostat is at appropriate levels throughout the year.
Better Energy Efficiency
When you improve your heater’s operational efficiency, it will become more energy-efficient too. A premium heater tune-up from Gold Star may increase your energy efficiency by as much as 40%. Preventative maintenance will help keep more money in your wallet while also benefitting the environment as you’ll burn less fuel. Homeowners can also perform necessary tasks like regularly changing filters and setting their thermostats at lower temperatures to further save on energy costs.
Extend Your Heater’s Life
You take your car in for regular check-ups, right? Your heater should get the same treatment except that the technician comes to your home to ensure that your system runs well and won’t endure an unexpected breakdown. Regular preventive maintenance, which includes cleaning and tightening all elements, can extend its life. With optimal care, your heating system can last for many years.
As your heating system ages, it will break down more frequently even with regular heater tune-ups. Parts will wear and grade from daily use or underlying reasons, such as failure of other internal systems. Addressing such issues early will prevent costly repairs in the future. Gold Star only employs top-rated HVAC technicians who can quickly diagnose and efficiently remedy your heater’s needs. Every technician on our team has a truck that is fully stocked with the most common parts so they can make on-the-spot repairs. Gold Star will serve you with premium services that will ensure that your system works efficiently, no matter how cold the weather is. We will service your heating system 24/7, no matter what type of problem you may have.
No matter how high end or how well you maintain your heater, it still is a mechanical system with a limited service life. Sooner or later, you’ll end up replacing it because a repair may simply not be cost-efficient or because of old age. You can trust the Gold Star staff to give you a fair assessment of your heating system and recommend the proper replacement system when repairs simply aren’t the best choice. We will work with you to find a heating system that fits your budget and needs. You’ll also love the fact that many of our brand new heaters come with a 12-year part and labor warranty.
