Gas Furnace Maintenance in Milwaukie, OR 97222-4730
“Justin arrived on time with a big smile on his face so I knew we had a winner right from the start! He got right in and did an annual check on our gas furnace with such skill and efficiency that he was done and handing me the paper to sign before I could hardly turn around! I double checked with him by asking if he had checked everything and he assured me he had and all was well and running properly! I am used to service people spending more time sorting tools and poking around to accomplish the same thing Justin did in a few minutes. This guy is a gem! Don't let him get away from you because he is saving you time and money with his efficient and quick service. Way to go, Justin!”

Gas Furnace Installation in Portland, OR 97213
“Mike L and Zach F installed a new gas furnace in our basement a couple of weeks ago. They did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be happier! It was in the middle of a major house remodel and we are still living in the house so there were a lot of moving pieces for them to work around. I was so impressed with their manner and work ethic. They were both very polite and willing to work with me on the exact location of the unit. There were few days where Mike was here by himself and in order to make sure I was happy with the placement, he moved the unit 3 times for me, duct work and all. I know those were long days for him but he never complained. And both he and Zach worked to make sure the location of the new vents would work for us in the new remodeled space. The unit works beautifully! Lastly… we had an incident at the end of a long work day where someone had dumped buckets of wood stain in our dumpster outside and it had spilled all over the ground. Mike and Zach were getting ready to leave for the day when we noticed it but immediately grabbed supplies out of their van and started cleaning it up. I cannot thank them enough for that kindness. I would definitely recommend Ben's Heating and Air Conditioning and Mike L and Zach F as installers anytime. Thank you for a great experience!”

Air Conditioner Installation in Portland, OR 97214-2062
“Gordon did an excellent job of installing both central air conditioning and a new gas furnace. Tim assisted and both were professional and cleaned up afterwords. We still have four items that remain to be completed. They are: finish installing the UV light in the plenum, reconnect the water heater closer to chimney, repair plaster in ceiling where furnace vents out, and test run furnace.”

Once the cooler weather hits here in Portland, OR, this fall, you are going to want the inside of your home toasty and comfortable. This means turning on your furnace. Long before the first night you’ll want it, you should have your furnace cleaned and checked by a professional from Ben’s Heating & Air Conditioning. You may not think this maintenance is important, and you can save money by forgoing it, but you would be mistaken. Here are five reasons you should call to schedule your appointment today.
1. It Prevents Unexpected and Costly Breakdowns
When you schedule your furnace clean and check on a regular annual basis, you are preventing breakdowns. By having a seasoned expert inspect and clean your system, he or she can spot any impending repairs or weaknesses. This alerts you, so you can take care of the issue in a timely manner, circumventing middle-of-the-night emergencies when emergency services will cost you more.
2. It Saves on Monthly Energy Bills
By having your furnace cleaned regularly, which includes replacing or cleaning your filter, your furnace can work more efficiently, saving you energy. Once it gets dirty, airflow becomes diminished and blocked, causing your furnace to work harder, using more energy to do the same amount of work it normally does under easier conditions.
3. It Keeps You and Your Family Safe
When your furnace is not inspected and cleaned before you use it every fall, you run the risk of missing a possible unsafe issue or repair. Sometimes something as dangerous as a cracked heat exchanger can occur. According to AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute) this can leak toxic carbon monoxide into your home’s air, and you may not be aware of it at the beginning stages of the problem. (LINK: http://www.ahrinet.org/Homeowners/Improve-Safety/Gas-Furnace-Safety) By then, dangerous levels of the poisonous gas could already be in your home. Your professional technician can spot and address safety issues prior to them becoming unsafe.
4. It Extends Your Furnace’s Lifespan
Your furnace is meant to run smoothly and efficiently, with an expected lifespan of 15 to 20 years (for gas furnaces). When you neglect its annual clean and check, the dirt and dust accumulated inside builds up and causes problems. This in turn forces your system to work harder, wearing down its parts sooner. Keeping things running smoothly helps your furnace live a long and healthy life.
5. It Keeps the Warranty Valid
Your furnace most likely came with a manufacturer’s warranty. Many of these warranties specify regular maintenance needs to be performed to keep the system in tip-top shape and to prevent unneeded repairs. By not scheduling these maintenance appointments, your chance of incurring repairs increases and may void your warranty.
To ensure the best results for both your furnace and your pocketbook, be sure to schedule your annual furnace clean-and-check appointment before the cold weather hits. You want your furnace to start right up without issue. Call one of our expert Ben’s Heating & Air Conditioning technicians at 503-233-1779 to make your appointment today.
