HVAC Repair & Maintenance

About HVAC Maintenance

Preventative maintenance to your HVAC system is important to prevent repairs to your furnace or air conditioning system. Scheduled preventative maintenance will allow your system or unit to perform safely and effectively – as well as efficiently. An efficient system can even help you save a good deal of money in the long run. It’s also important to run HVAC maintenance to your heat pump, furnace or geothermal unit before winter strikes, so you’re not stuck out in the cold. A malfunctioning heater would not only leave you freezing, but it can freeze the pipes in your home and could cause them to burst under the cold pressure. Steve’s Heating and Cooling can help you maintain and repair your HVAC systems.

Air Conditioning Repair

Although the summer is coming to a close, it’s never too late to get your air conditioning unit repaired in preparation for next year. (And don’t we have quite a few of warm days left in September?)

When it comes to air conditioning repairs, don’t settle. Call us if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Loud wheezing or wailing noise coming from the system or unit – this can indicate a dislodged fan belt, or another loose or broken part.
  • Frozen coil(s) – if you forgot to change your filter, this will probably happen.
  • Leaking air conditioner
  • Air conditioner isn’t cooling your home properly
**If your problem isn’t listed, call us anyway! We have licensed and trained experts who can fix and diagnose your problems.

Furnace Repair

We provide furnace and heat pump repair and replacement in Cincinnati and the Tri-state area. Don’t get stuck out in the cold this winter season! Call us if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Inadequate heating or no heating
  • Heat costs are rising for no apparent reason
  • Furnace cycles are off
  • The blower fan is running constantly
  • The unit or system is too noisy

Electric Bill Savings Guide

  1. Examine and clean your ventilation system or have an HVAC expert do it for you. The more dust that has collected in the vents, the more you’re going to pay to heat and cool your home or apartment. It takes longer to push air through clogged vents.
  2.  Invest in energy-efficient devices. A few examples include smaller devices that don’t use as much power, energy-saving light bulbs, and Energy Star certified appliances and machines.
  3.  Don’t use ceiling floodlights. Replace these with the energy-saving light bulbs.
  4.  Change your energy supplier to a fixed rate supplier. After finding out the rate that your provider offers, check competitors’ prices in the area. Take note that a provider can be different from a supplier.
  5.  Switch off and unplug everything when they’re not in use. Meaning, appliances and fixtures that are plugged in still use power even if they’re turned off.
  6.  Move big energy consuming devices away from direct sunlight and into the cold. For example, cooling devices (such as the air conditioner) need to be placed away from heating devices, and vice versa.
  7.  Keep the door to refrigerators, freezers, etc. closed when not using them.
  8.  Keep cooling and heating devices at least two inches away from the wall so air can circulate properly.
  9.  Increase the inside temperature of freezers and refrigerators.
  10.  Check the sealing gasket or have an expert do it for you. If damaged, it will need to be replaced. It’ll save on energy consumption in the long run.
  11.  Defrost the freezer if there’s ice along the edges.
  12.  Replace old appliances.
  13.  Dry clothes on a clothesline instead of a dryer.
  14.  Put your PC on energy-saving mode.

Some other tips include being smart about how much energy you’re using. If you’re comfortable with the current temperature, turn the heat or air conditioning off.
