Lamont Chicago, IL

I had numerous other contractors come out and attempt to determine and troubleshoot our furnace repair issue. They told me I needed a furnace replacement and that it would cost $6,000.  I was referred to ProActiv Prevention and when I called Ken indicated that it actually may be a minor fix.  Ken was at my home within the hour and found that we just needed to press a reset switch – my furnace started right up!  Ken saved me a tremendous amount of frustration and an investment that I couldn’t make at the time.”

When Was Your Last Furnace Maintentance?

What is better than a quick furnace repair?  Conducting regular, proactive maintenance so your equipment doesn’t fail during a frigid Chicago winter!

There are several very good reasons for keeping up with HVAC maintenance:

  • Your furnace likely accounts for a third to a half of your monthly energy bill. If that doesn’t motivate you to make sure your furnace is operating at peak efficiency, we’re not sure what will!
  • Your furnace needs to be in good repair to ensure safety. Carbon monoxide and natural gas leaks are two dangers that everyone must take seriously. We advise everyone with a gas furnace in the home to have carbon monoxide detectors nearby, and if you need to have one installed, talk to us. Chicago codes require a carbon monoxide detector in any home heated with any kind of fossil fuel. We can take care of this installation in accordance with code.
  • A dirty unit can introduce contaminants into the home. Poor air quality can be harmful to the health of your family members. As part of your furnace tune-up, we can advise you on the frequency of air filter changes needed.

What Services Should Be Performed During a Furnace Tune-Up?

ProActiv Prevention will check your entire HVAC system as part of the tune-up. We recommend this be done on an annual basis. Here are some of the other things we’ll do, as appropriate:

  • We will inspect the entire HVAC system.
  • If any components are dirty, we’ll clean them, and lubricate if appropriate.
  • We will test your pilot light.
  • We will check the vents drains and ensure they’re clear.
  • We will check the vent system for any blockage.
  • If we see any other potential problem, we’ll let you know, and will offer potential fixes.

The Furnace Tune-Up Chicago Turns To

ProActiv Prevention handles heating and air conditioning for homeowners, apartment complex managers and homeowners associations (HOA). Whether you’re looking for residential heating and cooling or you need a heating handyman who can provide preventative maintenance for an entire rental community we are available for furnace maintenance and annual furnace tune-up service as well as for repairs.

Our Best Furnace Repair Advice?

Don’t wait for an emergency! There’s nothing worse than having your furnace go down in the middle of winter. By having an existing relationship with a heating service handyman you trust, you will be able to cope with a sudden emergency with far more peace of mind. But more importantly, you may be able to prevent the emergency altogether. Quite a few furnace issues can be prevented with good maintenance.

As our owners would say, “A problem isn’t a problem if you are prepared to handle it”!

Don’t Forget About Your Entire HVAC Heating and Cooling System

Everything we’re saying about heating goes for cooling as well. Having your air conditioning fail during a heat wave is pretty unpleasant. It might not be as life-threatening as losing heat in sub-zero weather, but if you have family members who are sensitive to heat, it’s not a trivial problem. Maintenance of your entire system saves you money and headaches in the long run.
