Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Firestone, CO, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call Carbon Valley Heating and Air to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:
Furnace and Boiler Maintenance
For furnaces and boilers, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall. The purpose is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, i.e., to keep you having heat when you need it. Our technician will check and clean (depending on whether you have a furnace or boiler) all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors, thermostat(s), and smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors, and instruct you on anything you could do between our service visits. As a rule of thumb, furnace filters need to be changed every three months or as needed, which is something you can do yourself with the correct filters.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.
Air-Filtration System Maintenance
For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at Carbon Valley Heating and Air.

Good Experience for Many Years in Erie, CO
Carbon Valley Heating & Air is great. They installed my furnace about seven years ago and have been taking care of maintenance and servicing for me. Most recently they came by to do the annual servicing. The technician who came out was professional and efficient. He did what he was supposed to and didn’t leave a mess. He came in on time, took care of the job and was courteous throughout. Overall, I’d say it’s been a good experience with this company.

“I mentioned during my initial call that it was not a rush and yet you were able to provide service the same day as my call. That was great. The service technician arrived on time. Was courteous, thorough and kept me informed.
The part was ordered and installed again within the window ( 1hr) of time that you indicated it would be. Very satisfied.
I did not do any price comparisons.. so I am not sure about the price I paid as compared to industry average.
I am a very satisfied customer.”
