Heating Service & Maintenance

residential heating and cooling heater maintenance

To keep your furnace running well, we recommend a professional check-up at the beginning of the heating season every year. Proper maintenance of your heating system is one of the best ways to protect your system and your comfort for your Santa Clara County home. In fact, it can save you money in future repairs, extend the life of your heating system, and keep your energy bills down.

In some cases, heating equipment isn’t running at peak performance, due to dust or debris. In other cases, there can be a more urgent issue involving carbon monoxide levels that needs to be addressed to protect the safety and wellbeing of your family.

One of the best ways to keep your heating bills low and your Silicon Valley home comfortable and safe all winter long is with our 22-point furnace tune-up, cleaning, and safety inspection. The Residential Heating and Air Conditioning team will look your furnace over from top to bottom and help keep it running for peak performance and comfort.

Some of the items we address are in Silicon Valley homes include:

  • Carbon monoxide levels

  • Thermostat calibration

  • Air filter replacement (one-inch filter included)

  • Safety device

  • Gas pressure

  • Blower motor operation

  • Natural gas or propane leaks

  • Ignition system function

  • Fan belt tension

  • Fan operation

  • Tightening all mechanical connections

  • Condensate drainage (for Energy Star models)

  • Temperature differential across heat exchanger

  • Proper lubrication of moving parts

Energy Efficiency

It is important to maintain your furnace to keep it running efficiently. At Residential Heating  and Air Conditioning, we can identify issues that will help lower your energy bills.

For example, some furnaces are installed with the factory settings that don’t optimize energy use or the

gas pressure isn’t ideal for optimum efficiency. Because it is a high priority to many of our Silicon Valley customers, our NATE-certified technicians are highly trained in boosting the energy efficiency of heating equipment.

Reduces Repairs

Every winter we receive calls from San Jose-area residents without heat. Many of these urgent issues could have been avoided through maintenance, saving money and hastle. When a heating system isn’t running efficiently, it works harder to compensate. This can cause parts to fail that wouldn’t have otherwise.

Boosting Home Safety

Most heating systems in the Silicon Valley use natural gas or propane to produce heat. If a furnace isn’t functioning properly, there can be unsafe levels of carbon monoxide in the home. Our 22-point furnace tune-up, cleaning, and safety inspections address these issues, because our Residential team takes your safety very seriously.

Since 1995, Residential Heating and Air Conditioning has helped make thousands of homes across Santa Clara County to be more comfortable, safe, and energy efficient. As woman-owned company, our veteran team of NATE-certified technicians has earned a reputation for exceptional value and attention to detail.

Schedule Service

Get Started


We just bought a home, and scheduled Residential to come out to clean and inspect our heater.

Jim arrived right on time, and was very informative, explaining to me about the basic details of our heating system. Then he was diligent in cleaning and inspecting the unit (and that thing was really dirty!). Finally he walked me through his findings, going over the condition of the unit, explaining our next steps and maintenance, and making some suggestions on how we can have a more efficient heating system.
