Last week, we talked about the importance of having your heating system tuned up and ready to go for the fall and winter season. This week, we are going to go over what our trained and skilled technicians will do when they visit your home.

What will I receive with my fall maintenance visit?

If you sign up with Anchor for a service plan, you will receive a visit to your home, ahead of peak season, twice a year at one reduced price.  The trained, professional technician that visits your home will go through a detailed checklist to be sure that your system is working at its best.
