Richmond Hill residents should schedule furnace maintenance at least once annually before the cold season arrives.

Let our certified technicians maintain your system before the onset of the cold season.

Our Furnace Maintenance Services

Furnace maintenance is a preventive service that helps prevent common furnace malfunctions. This annual tune-up process involves inspecting your furnace thoroughly to ensure all components are in good working order. It also involves identifying and fixing common problems before they escalate. A Galbreath Heating & Air technician can examine your furnace and perform the necessary maintenance steps to ensure your unit meets the desired performance levels.

What Does Furnace Maintenance Include?

We offer comprehensive furnace maintenance in Richmond Hill, GA, and the surrounding areas. This service leaves nothing to chance. Our experienced technicians will inspect your furnace from top to bottom to ensure it works optimally. 

A typical furnace maintenance process includes the following steps:

  • Cleaning and replacing the air filters
  • Inspecting the thermostat and pilot light
  • Checking and tightening electrical connections
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger
  • Examining the blower and burner
  • Checking the condensate line
  • Generating a furnace maintenance report

Why Is Furnace Maintenance Important?

Furnace maintenance is a critical service. It protects your investment from future problems and unwanted repair costs. It also has long-term financial savings and can help prevent costly repairs. 

With that said, the following are the top reasons why furnace maintenance is essential:

Optimal Performance

Regular pre-season furnace maintenance ensures your heating system functions at its peak performance. Our Galbreath Heating & Air technicians will inspect all internal and external components to ensure they do not have malfunctions. During routine maintenance, our licensed experts will clean or replace the air filters, check essential parts, and improve airflow, allowing you to maximize the efficiency of your furnace.

Improved Efficiency

Like all household appliances, furnaces lose their efficiency by small percentage margins over time. However, you can improve the efficiency of your furnace through regular maintenance. A well-maintained furnace is highly efficient for consistent heating and improved indoor comfort. That is not all. With better efficiency comes lower energy bills. Let a Galbreath technician tune up your furnace and improve its performance.

Damage Prevention

While a furnace is one of the most reliable appliances, it is not exempt from malfunctions. Your furnace can break down when least expected. However, you can avert this situation through regular furnace maintenance. Annual maintenance prevents minor issues from escalating into bigger problems. Our skilled technician will inspect your furnace for issues and perform the necessary repairs. Addressing these issues during maintenance visits can prevent costly repairs and unexpected malfunctions, saving you time and money.

Safety Assurance

A malfunctioning or poorly maintained furnace might pose various safety hazards. Your safety is our priority. Our furnace maintenance service can help detect and fix safety issues like gas leaks, loose electrical connections, and carbon monoxide emissions, ensuring the safety of your household. Spotting and addressing these problems early also guarantees the safe operation of your furnace.

Extended Lifespan

Most furnaces last for 10–15 years before requiring system upgrades or replacements. However, you can prolong the lifespan of your furnace through regular check-ups. Routine furnace maintenance catches potential problems before they occur, ensuring your unit does not break down unexpectedly. It also identifies and fixes underlying issues, extending the lifespan of your furnace.

Warranty Compliance

Furnaces usually come with warranties. However, most manufacturers also demand that homeowners should schedule annual furnace maintenance for their warranty to remain valid. The only way to remain compliant is to adhere to these requirements. Also, routine maintenance might include warranty-covered repairs at no additional cost. These complimentary services can help homeowners save money on potential expenses.

Aaron was very professional, explained everything he was doing, helped me with any questions I had and was very nice. We have been customers of Galbreath Heating & Air for years and will never switch companies. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a reliable, honest and hard working company!

Brandon is AWESOME!!! I have a new build home that’s almost 4 years old and experiencing HVAC issues. I originally had a different company come out that said I have a leaking coil and in total recommended close to $10K repairs to fix. Also they said the coil was on back order and never called me again. Awesome. Brandon came out for a second opinion and he was extremely polite, patient and courteous. He explained everything thoroughly and did not try to upsell us on unneeded items. His recommended fixes made sense and the infamous coil… their company called on the spot and found one that we could have in 1-3 business days and we walked away paying half the cost of the original quote. For anyone in the coastal Georgia area, Galbreath is a great option. We won’t go anywhere else from now on!

Galbreath Heating and Air went above and beyond when our upstairs unit went out in July. We have used them for everything since and are using them again to replace our downstairs unit. All there techs are super polite, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.

No hard sales pitch. Danny determined our system requirements and presented them professionally without a "sales pitch". The installation team was on time, organized and presented themselves as competent and professional. I would recommend Galbreath Air to anyone needing a HVAC system replacement. The follow up service has also been excellent. Zach was very thorough. Based on our experience, this is a company you can trust.

The technicians with Galbreath Heating and Air are very knowledgeable and patient. They answered all of my questions every step of the way. They do good quality work, in a timely manner, while paying close attention to detail. My new HVAC unit works so well and is much more efficient and powerful than my old unit. The installation took 1 day. I would recommend this company to anyone that needs a new HVAC installed or repair work done on an older unit.

Another exceptional service call! Our new tech Aaron did an excellent job in servicing our HVAC system. Continuing the high standards of service.
Have dealt with several HVAC companies since moving to the Savannah area. First experience with Galbreath was excellent when called for a late summer night clogged drain line/pan in a lease home. After purchasing an older, rural home, we had to replace 2 heat pump systems, the first by another company (before Galbreath extended service into our area) and the second with Galbreath. Galbreath’s project manager (in our case Danny) shared his excellent product knowledge and provided 2 options allowing for an educated purchase for our specific needs. Technicians consistently arrive within time frame stated, listen to issues encountered, then work diligently to identify any issues, make repairs if necessary, and as in our case today, Brandon thoroughly inspected the 2 preexisting units and only needed to replace the faulty thermostats with the better functioning thermostat Galbreath installed with their heat pump system. All employees to date have been respectful of our property, and all certifications and filed warranties were provided promptly by courteous office staff. Previously having obtained pricing from 3 companies for various top rated brand heat pump installations, Galbreath’s pricing was competitive and their service consistently remains beyond comparison. We will not be calling any HVAC companies other than Galbreath in the future and wish all companies performed at their level of service and professionalism.

Great Service explained any problems with my HVAC unit and the cost for fixing it.

While I can't say that I am thrilled with the performance of the Lenox equipment having had two coils fail in less than 8 years of operation, the Galbreath team has been outstanding in supporting us from the initial purchase and installation, the annual service visits and the coil replacements. Unfortunately, it's hard to find conscientious workers who do quality work, but Galbreath seems to have succeeded in not only finding them, but keeping them. The technician who did our initial install over 8 years ago was the same one who did the most recent air handler replacement and he was excellent both times. Galbreath has my highest recommendation.
June M.
we were very happy with the service from Galbreth heating & air & especially Tyler ,Tim,Charlie,Austin & Ray . these men were on it from the time they arrived to install a new unit & cleaned up the mess before they left here . Tyler even walked us through the directions & how to install the unit on our phones & computer so we could control it while we were away from home. I would recommend them to everyone as we went with the best in this area . we are 100% satisfied
Vickie E.
I had my dryer vent cleaned. They came out in a timely manner. Jerry was very polite, helpful, and professional. I will be using this company from now on for my annual services. Very pleased.
Joseph D.
Excellent service provider since 2017 when I contacted for coverage!
Kyle O.
Our HVAC system stopped working two days ago and Galbreath was able to schedule us next day. Aaron was very professional and personable. He explained the issues thoroughly and fixed our HVAC quickly. Highly recommend Galbreath and Aaron.
Bill J.
First of all, Danny Shapiro did a great job going over our options to replace our 2 systems. Once we decided, an appointment was set. The lead installer Charlie Clark and his crew of Austin, Ray and Tim were exceptional. They removed and replaced both systems with a minimum of disruption. The job was completed in 8 hours. They were respectful of our property and cleaned up thoroughly after the installation. My wife and I were very pleased with our choice of Galbreath for this project. Thanks to all for a job well done.Bill and Beth Jeffreys
Ashley L.
We continue receiving great service. Always professional and knowledgeable technicians. Great communication with the office staff. Communication is seamless. We have been using Galbreath for 10 years and trust this company.
Lisa D.
Fast emergency service. Kevin is wonderful. He was determined to find the problem, and he did.
Ted J.
The Galbreath team was very responsive when my heat pump needed servicing. Rebecca was very courteous and professional taking the inbound call and getting us scheduled for the next day. Zach came out and went through the system and found the issue to be the blower motor. He gave me a quote to repair and then got it scheduled and repaired the following day. Zach was very knowledgeable and helpful and explained exactly what was going on. He also showed me the value of the maintenance membership and we selected that option as well. With the age of my system, I can now count on 2 visits per year to keep it at top performance. In addition, with the S40 thermostat I have, Galbreath will probably know I have an issue even before I do!! Zach is a great technician and an asset to the company. On a side note, my wife really appreciates that Zach put on boot covers every time he can I to the house.I would highly recommend Galbreath for all your HVAC needs.
