Knowing When to Call

If your heater has been acting up and you have tried the usual home maintenance tasks such as changing the filter and checking the thermostat, your next step is to call for a heater repair. Usually, our customers call us when their heater is making odd noises or has stopped producing hot air. Some less well-known signs of heater failure or malfunction are a pilot light that is yellow instead of blue, or increased energy bills. If you notice the former, give us a call right away and turn off your heater. This may be an indication of the presence of carbon monoxide.

Parma Installation Services with Jennings

When you have a heater installed with Jennings, you always have the benefit of a 10-year parts limited warranty as well as a limited heat exchanger warranty. We want to make sure you are happy with the system you receive from us. We take care to understand your situation and the special needs of your home so that we can recommend an option that will ensure efficient and comfortable heat from fall through spring.

The Benefits of a New System in Parma, OH

Did you know that the U.S. Department of Energy has set a minimum efficiency rating for heaters? In order to be up to code, heaters on the market must have an AFUE rating of at least 80%. However, heaters that are 10 years old or older may have an efficiency rating as low as 50%. This means that you may be paying twice as much to heat your home as you would if you had a new energy-efficient model.

The heater installation process is a time to reevaluate the amount of energy that you use to heat your home and to find new ways to save. We are happy to help with this process by installing a system that will serve you reliably for years. We know how to work within your budget to find you the most efficient system within your desired price range.

A new heater can also benefit you by saving you money on repairs. As they age, heaters need more care to continue running, and this could mean having to call your HVAC technician more than once per year to repair the system. A new heater that is well-maintained will rarely have problems.

Paying for Your Parma Heating Installation

There is no need to skirt around the issue: heater installations are expensive. Even if you are not paying for the largest and most luxurious model on the market, it can use up a significant

portion of your savings. If the installation has come as a surprise due to an unexpected heater failure, this cost can come as even more of a shock. However, keeping your home warm is absolutely essential, so skipping this expense is not usually an option.

Allow our team at Jennings to help. There are several ways that you can make the expense of a new heater more manageable for you and your family. We have partnered with Synchrony to help our customers afford installations right when they need them. The process to apply for financing is fast and easy, allowing you to get started right away.

In addition to financing, we also give you the option to plan ahead with our credit accrual program. With continuous enrollment in our Rewards Club you will get up to $200 per year and up to $2,000 total to put towards a new system. During your regular maintenance appointment, our technicians will be able to let you know how soon you can expect to have to replace your system so that you can begin the process of saving for the installation. We will do everything we can to make heating your home more affordable.

Parma Heating Maintenance

You may have heard your HVAC technician strongly recommend preventative maintenance. This is more than just a plea for more business. At Jennings, we have the health of your system as well as your hard-earned money in mind when we make these recommendations. Tune-ups and inspections are a great way to save money because they keep breakdowns from occurring.

During our appointments, small problems are often identified which can be affordably repaired on the spot and which prevent the malfunction of major components such as the heat exchanger. Cleaning out the dirt, dust, and grime will enable the system to run more efficiently, which lowers monthly costs. Finally, you may be able to get a few more years out of your system than you were originally expecting because maintenance makes heater systems last longer.

What is Heating Maintenance?

Some people do not take advantage of maintenance services because, by nature, these services are performed when the system is not malfunctioning. However, the old saying “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it” doesn’t necessarily apply to HVAC systems. Preventative maintenance can be compared to essential automotive services such as oil changes and they greatly affect the function and long-term health of the heater. Just as a car may need an engine replacement if the oil is not changed, your heater will eventually need a major repair without regular service.

Maintenance or Repair?

If your system is running less efficiently, you may wonder if you need a repair or regular maintenance. Maintenance is generally scheduled at the same time every year so a good indication that your system is in need of a tune-up is if a year has gone by since your last appointment. A general decrease in the warmth and airflow of the system is also usually a sign that maintenance is needed. However, if there are other more serious signs such as loud noises, a lack of hot air, or the presence of carbon monoxide, call for immediate repair services. Never hesitate to reach out to our 24/7 team for questions regarding your system, remote assessments, and virtual quotes.

What is the Difference Between Tune-Ups and Repairs?

Our customers are often confused about what makes our tune-up services different. While repairs are geared towards fixing heaters that have broken down, stopped working effectively, or even caused a hazard in your home, tune-ups can be performed on any system at any time, even if it is in good condition. In fact, tune-ups are recommended for every heater from the time it is installed until the end of its lifespan.

Tune-ups are scheduled ahead of time, and are usually performed once per year. Most homeowners prefer to have maintenance done on their system just before winter for maximum benefit. Conversely, a repair should be scheduled any time your heater stops producing hot air, is making loud noises during operation, is producing a foul odor, or will no longer turn on. If you are having a problem with the efficiency of your heater, you can call Jennings and we can help you determine which service you need.

Are Tune-Ups Necessary?

As with any of your possessions, it is your choice how much you want to invest in the care of your heater. Your heater will likely still operate for a time without this service. However, tune-ups are essential if you want your system to maintain its efficiency rating, last 20 years or more, and be covered by your warranty. Also, as much as we love serving our Parma customers, tune-ups are a good way to prevent having to see us too often for heater repairs. Some of the most expensive repairs such as blow motor and capacitor failure can be prevented by frequent cleaning, air filter replacement, and lubrication.

When your system is inspected regularly, your technician will be able to find problems much earlier and then you can make a plan to fix them before they cause a system failure. Keeping dirt away from the heat exchanger, fan, gas valve and more will boost efficiency, prevent wear and tear, and protect your family from gas leaks. While not a requirement of heater ownership, tune-ups provide many benefits for our customers which, in our opinion, are indispensable.

What is Included in Our Tune-Ups?

Not all tune-ups are equally beneficial for your system. Some HVAC contractors offer tune-ups that are not comprehensive and will not provide the best protection. At Jennings, we aim to have the most extensive maintenance services in Parma while still charging a reasonable cost. Our technicians follow a detailed checklist to ensure that your system has been checked from top to bottom. Included in our heater tune-ups are the following services:

  • COMPONENT INSPECTION

Your heater has many different components that are all working together to heat your home. Everything from the thermostat to the blower pulley is essential and needs to be

working correctly. The first stage in our tune-ups is to inspect these areas and note any parts that are worn out, old, or not functioning properly. We inspect controls, electrical connections, and safety features, and we do a carbon monoxide test and look for signs of a gas leak.

  • CLEANING AND LUBRICATION

Cleaning the inside of your heater is difficult and should be done by a licensed technician with experience in heater care. During a tune-up, we clean the burner, pilot light, thermocouple, and more. We also make sure the area around your heater is clean, your filter is new, and your vents are not obstructed.

  • ADJUSTMENT

During regular operation, components can become loose or out of place. We will adjust and tighten anything that needs it including the electrical connections and thermostat. The specific services that we perform will depend upon the type of system that you have, and any major repair needs will be discussed with you before we take the time to fix them.

Jennings Rewards Club Membership
