Our Repair Process

Our technicians are experienced and knowledgeable about heater repairs, and this experience has put us at the forefront of the industry. Every single job is important to us, and our precision and dedication to hard work result in quality that you can count on. Because we are confident in the excellence of our repairs, we offer our customers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We set a high standard for our work and want our customers to feel like they have received the best care available.

Our repair process often starts with a call from our customers stating that “something isn’t working right.” Furnace breakdowns can often be preceded by tell-tale signs that you can observe from your living room. Your heater should ideally run silently, but if you begin to notice strange sounds when your heater is running, you should call us right away. These noises can occur when parts begin to wear out or when there is not enough lubrication to keep it running smoothly. A timely repair will prevent these components from becoming damaged further and causing deeper problems.

If your heater is refusing to turn on or is blowing out lukewarm air, the problem may be a simple one such as a stuck valve or a dirty sensor. When you call our team, we will quickly diagnose the problem and then give you options for fixing it. The price that we quote before service is always the price that we will charge, guaranteed. Next, we get to work repairing your system so that you can enjoy a warm house again as quickly as possible.

Richfield Emergency Services

Your heater is unlikely to politely wait for a convenient time to break down. Instead, it will probably happen after hours when the temperatures are freezing and the weather is nasty outside. However, when you keep our number on hand for emergencies, the repair can happen almost as quickly as the breakdown. Get your heater fixed fast with our 24/7 emergency services. Our local warehouse is loaded with all of the necessary parts so that we can be promptly in and out.

Richfield Heating Replacement

If your heater is beyond repair and is no longer functioning properly, let the expert technicians at Jennings take care of your heater replacement before it’s too late and you’re huddled around the oven. The necessary parts will always be available with radio dispatched trucks that are fully loaded with 1,000 of the most commonly needed parts sent to your home.

A Heater for Every Home

With many different types, sizes, and brands of heaters on the market, it is no wonder that our customers often come to us feeling overwhelmed. We take the process step by step and listen to your concerns along the way. There are several items that you and your Comfort Advisor will look at together before making the final selection.

  • Efficiency- This is one of the top priorities of many households when selecting a heater. The good news is that if your current heater is more than ten years old, any replacement is likely to be an improvement when it comes to efficiency. Modern gas heaters are required to have an AFUE rating of at least 80% to even be on the market. Our Platinum Comfort System at Jennings has an AFUE rating of 98.5%, making it one of the best in the industry.
  • Ambient Noise- If your heater is making loud noises, this is usually a sign that it needs to be repaired. However, some systems simply run louder than others. We will talk about how important a quiet operation is for you and whether this is a consideration when selecting a system.
  • Zoning Capabilities- Most heater systems are designed to evenly heat the home. A properly engineered ductwork system should deliver warm air to each room, keeping all of them at a constant temperature that feels comfortable. However, there are certain situations that may call for a more creative solution. If you need different zones in your home for variable temperature control we can help solve the problem with our installation services.

Our aim with each installation is to improve the comfort, air quality, and efficiency of your home all while keeping our prices affordable. While this may seem like a tall order, we have decades of experience that enables us to pass on these benefits to our customers. We are excited to be able to offer our credit accrual program to our valued customers in Richfield. When you invest in continual enrollment in our Rewards Club, you will add $100- $200 in credit accrual to your account every year for a maximum of $2,000 to put towards your next heating system installation.

Our Installation Process

If you are feeling nervous about the installation process, we are here to put your mind at ease. Our company has performed thousands of heater installations, and we have the process down to a science to ensure a quality experience. If you have an old heater, we will remove it and make the area ready for your brand new system. This can sometimes involve checking or upgrading connections for safe and effective operation. If any alterations are needed, you will know ahead of time. You will always have an estimate beforehand as well as a detailed invoice after the work is completed.

Once the installation is done, we will test your new system to check that everything is working perfectly. Members of our Rewards Club always receive a 2-year extended warranty on repairs, and every one of our Richfield customers gets the very best follow-up care that we can offer, even without a membership.

Heating and Maintenance in Richfield

When you own a vehicle that you love, you know that you must invest some money into its upkeep. This means regular oil changes, occasional replacement of small components that are exhibiting wear and tear, and thorough cleaning inside and out to keep the carpets free from dirt and the paint free from rust. Your heater is just as important as your vehicle, and it needs the same type of care. The filters should be regularly changed, internal and external components should be cleaned to keep dust and buildup away, and lubrication needs to be added to moving parts to keep them from wearing out.

Our preventative maintenance encompasses all of these important items and more. The goal is to make sure the system is safe by checking for gas leaks or electrical problems. We also want to keep your heater running smoothly through replacements and adjustments and to ensure healthy air by getting rid of dust and dirt. Most appointments last less than two hours, but the benefits of keeping your system well-maintained can last for years.

Benefits of Heating Maintenance

Depending on how old your system is, it may struggle with efficiency. As your heater ages, its energy efficiency decreases. If your system is so old that major components such as the blower motor are failing, it is probably best to purchase a new system. However, many other problems with efficiency can be solved by investing in maintenance every year for your heater.

When you maintain your heater, you may notice other benefits in addition to efficiency such as more dependable operation with fewer repairs. Maintenance protects the whole system so that it doesn’t have a lot of downtime from malfunctions. Additionally, if you want to enjoy many years of reliable heat before having to replace your heater, regular maintenance will extend the lifespan of your heater, giving you a couple more years to save up for a new system.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, maintenance is the best way to prevent your warranty from being voided based on system neglect. Your warranty will cover most repairs that your system will need, but many of them also come with the stipulation that annual maintenance needs to be performed.

When is it Time for Heating Maintenance?

In general, it is a good idea to make sure your heater gets some kind of preventative maintenance at least once per year. If it has been this long or longer since your last service, schedule an appointment right away, even if your system is not showing signs of needing service. Preventative maintenance is similar to a check-up with your doctor. It is primarily for healthy systems rather than broken ones, and should not be neglected just because you aren’t having any problems with reliably heating your home. Some issues can hide well and are only found during an inspection of the system.

Additionally, you can also schedule heater maintenance any time you notice a lack of efficiency or an increase in your energy bills. It can also be a great step to take if you are suffering from allergies or respiratory problems. A dirty system can promote the recirculation of dirty air, causing the air quality to decrease in your home.

What Items are Included with a Tune-Up?

Tests and checks are a key part of tune-ups with Jennings. We want to see how your system is performing, and we want to ensure that your gas line, wiring, and safety controls are all safe and in good condition. We also want to see how efficiently your heater is running, determine its age, and assess the overall condition of the unit. This is important information that we will always pass on to you following a tune-up.

During your tune-up, if there are any loose electrical connections or problems with the thermostat or controls, we will adjust these before leaving. We will check and clean the heat exchanger, blower motor, pilot light, and sensor as necessary and change the filter. We will add lubrication where needed to keep moving parts working smoothly. Finally, we check for carbon monoxide leaks for your safety, and we will inspect your ducts and vents for clogs or leaks.

Does my Heating Need a Tune-Up Every Year?

Yes, at Jennings, we recommend scheduling this service annually just before winter. Having a heating tune-up every year can:

  • Improve Efficiency
  • Protect Your Warranty
  • Lengthen Your System’s Lifespan
  • Improve Your Comfort
  • And More!

In Between Tune-Ups

A year can seem like a long time in between appointments, but there are always things that you can do to continually care for your heater. Change the filters every three months or when it begins to look dirty so that it doesn’t have to struggle to operate with a dirty filter. You can also lower the strain on your heater by replacing weatherstripping in your home, adding insulation, and running your ceiling fans in the opposite direction during the winter.

Our Maintenance Plans

At Jennings, you can get the exact plan that you need to care for your specific system. You can choose between our Gold Level Plan for $26 per month or our Silver Level Plan for $16. Each will give you access to special rewards and discounts, including a $0 service fee for weekday repairs. Each of our members will also receive two 15-point maintenance inspections and reports every year. If you have been on the fence about investing in maintenance for your heater, this is the easiest and most affordable way to ensure that your system will heat your home for many years to come.
