To keep your home warm and cozy, you need a heating system that’s up to the task. That’s why I’m excited to discuss something near and dear to my heart – maintenance plans for your oil heating systems. Let’s break it down and see how Hillside Heating & Cooling ensures you stay toasty without a hitch.

Servicing and Installing: Brands for All, Budgets for All

Your heating system is like the heart of your home. Whether it’s a furnace, a boiler, a ductless mini-split, or a heat pump, Hillside’s got you covered. They work with major brands to suit all types of residences and budgets. That means you’re getting solutions that fit your needs like a glove.

The Power of Regular Maintenance

Picture this: it’s the dead of winter, and suddenly your heating system gives up the ghost. Nobody wants that. That’s where regular furnace cleaning and maintenance come into play. It’s like giving your system a health checkup, preventing failures, boosting efficiency, and keeping indoor air quality in shape. And guess who’s leading the pack in furnace maintenance? Hillside Heating & Cooling, of course.

The 30-Point Furnace Tune-Up: A Game Changer

Now, let’s talk about something music to your ears – the 30-point Furnace Tune-Up. This is like a spa day for your heating system, designed to nip potential problems in the bud before they even think about ruining your comfort. It’s the ultimate prevention plan to make sure you sail through the chilly season without a hitch.

Upgrade with a Credit:

Now that’s smart! And here’s the kicker – if you ever need to replace your heating equipment or decide to give it an upgrade, the amount you paid for your maintenance plan goes towards the replacement installation. Hillside’s not just about now; they’re about the long game. They say, “Hey, invest in us now, and we’ll invest in your future comfort.”

Details of the Heater Tune-Up: You’ll Love This

Let’s get technical for a minute. Hillside’s Heater Tune-Up covers a lot of ground. We’re talking about replacing nozzles, oil filters, and pump strainers. Cleaning, lubricating, and adjusting burners – it’s all about keeping things in tip-top shape. Here’s the scoop on what goes down:

1. Electrodes and Nozzle Inspection: Electrodes and nozzles play a crucial role in igniting the fuel in your furnace. During the tune-up, the pros at Hillside will thoroughly inspect these components to ensure they’re clean, aligned, and firing up your furnace like a champ.

2. Pump Strainer Check: The pump strainer’s job is to filter out any impurities in the oil before it reaches the burner. If it’s clogged, your furnace’s performance could suffer. The technicians will clean and inspect the pump strainer to keep things flowing smoothly.

3. Fan & Limit Control Examination: The fan and limit controls ensure your furnace operates within safe temperature limits. These controls are meticulously examined to ensure they function correctly and keep your system safe.

4. High-Tension Lead Assessment: High-tension leads carry the spark that ignites the fuel. Ensuring they’re in optimal condition is vital for efficient ignition. Hillside’s experts will inspect and adjust these leads as needed.

5. Oil Burner Motor Inspection: The oil burner motor is the engine of your furnace. Its performance impacts your entire heating system. The technicians will inspect, lubricate, and adjust it to keep it humming efficiently.

6. Draft Regulator Check: A draft regulator ensures proper airflow through your furnace, which affects combustion efficiency. The pros will inspect and calibrate this component for peak performance.

7. Combustion Chamber Examination: The combustion chamber is where the magic happens – where fuel ignites and creates heat. Keeping this chamber in optimal condition is crucial for efficiency and safety. It’ll be inspected and cleaned as part of the tune-up.

8. Thermostat Assessment: Your thermostat is like your furnace’s command center. It needs to communicate accurately with your heating system. The technicians will ensure it’s calibrated and functioning properly.

9. Drive Couplings Check: Drive couplings transmit power from the motor to other parts of the furnace. They’ll be inspected for wear and tear to prevent any operational issues.

10. Smoke Pipe and Shaft/Bearings Inspection: The smoke pipe carries exhaust gases away from your home, while the shaft and bearings ensure smooth motor operation. These components will be inspected for proper functionality and cleaned if necessary.

11. Transformer, Fuel Oil Pump, and Filter Assessment: These components ensure proper fuel delivery and ignition. They’ll be inspected to guarantee they’re working efficiently and reliably.

12. Primary Relay, Burner Fan, Blower Motor, and Blower Belt Examination: These parts contribute to proper fuel combustion and heat distribution. Inspections and adjustments will be made to ensure they’re in optimal condition.

Warm Air and Hot Water Systems: Full Coverage

Warm air and hot water systems? Covered. Hillside’s got a plan for both. Warm air systems get a percentage of coverage for parts and labor and believe me, it’s extensive. They’re talking about everything from fan motors to burner belts. And if you’ve got a hot water (boiler) system, they’ve got your back there, too, adding feed valves, aquastats, and more to the mix.

The Hillside Guarantee: You’re in Good Hands Remember, folks, it’s not just about parts and labor. Hillside’s guarantee goes beyond that. If you ever need replacement equipment or decide to upgrade, we’ll give you credit for your maintenance plan. They say, “We’re in this together for the long haul.”
