SOUTHLAKE, TX. – October 4, 2011 – Berkeys, a leading provider of air conditioning and plumbing services to the DFW metroplex, is now scheduling heating tune-ups to all of the cities it serves, including Plano, Flower Mound, Arlington, and Irving. Everyone knows how quickly the weather can change in North Texas and now is the time to prepare homes for inclement weather.
According to Berkeys CEO, Bill Stevens, preventive maintenance is something many homeowners overlook, and often they don’t realize there is a problem until it is too late. Incomplete combustion in gas heating systems can produce dangerous gases, including tasteless, odorless carbon monoxide. A crack in a heat exchanger can set harmful gases circulating throughout a home, causing health problems for a family, and in a worst case scenario, even asphyxiation.
“The expression, ‘If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,’ does not apply to your heating, air conditioning, and plumbing systems. In fact, having systems inspected annually by a professional reduces the chances of equipment failure and expensive repairs,” Stevens explains. “A home heating system tune-up will help families save on their utility bills through the detection of gas leaks, as well as ensure a family’s safety.”
Berkeys $79 tune-up includes a 14-point inspection by an EPA-certified, factory trained service technician. The inspection covers all elements of a home’s heating system to ensure good operating condition and the prevention of future problems. Berkeys heating tune-up includes:
- Inspect blower components
- Check and test safety controls
- Monitor furnace cycle
- Adjust gas pressure
- Clean heat exchanger and burners
- Thoroughly check for cracked heat exchanger
- Monitor flue draft for safe operation
- Adjust heat anticipator settings
- Check and adjust pilot operation
- Adjust air flow for proper temperature
- Lubricate all moving parts, where applicable
- Check and tighten all loose electrical connections
- Monitor voltage and amperage draw on all motors
- Clean and adjust thermostat
For an even greater value, customers can enroll in Berkeys BAM Plan for $99 per year, which entitles them to annual inspections of all home systems – heating, air conditioning, and plumbing – to ensure peak energy efficiency year-round. The BAM Plan also offers priority scheduling and preferred pricing on parts and labor.
