Service & Maintenance

Just like in car repair, a routine preventive maintenance is essential to your system. A preventive maintenance check-up ensures your equipment continues to perform at its highest efficiency, reduces the chance of costly repairs and helps to prolong your system’s life.

Aarvaks’ preventive maintenance is designed will help you keep your systems operating safety, efficiently and economically all year.

Custom Ductwork Repair

Your system’s ductwork is an important part of your home comfort system. Ductwork that is aging, damaged or was not installed correctly can cost you money and affect your home’s air quality. Mold, moisture, rat droppings, dust and other particles can penetrate into your air circulation system.

Aarvaks’ professionals will inspect your home’s ductwork to identify any problems and recommend solutions to ensure your home air quality remains efficient and clean. Our experts can repair or replace your ductwork with precision, so your system operates at peak performance.

Carrier Wi-Fi thermostat


Installing the right thermostat is an important part of maintaining the right temperature in your home. There are many options on the market today from non-programmable to programmable to smart thermostats. How do you know which is right for you?

Our experts can explain the pros and cons of each type of thermostat, provide advice on which one would work best with your system and professionally install it so that it provides you with the perfect comfort levels. We’ll also make sure you understand how to use your new thermostat, so it can save you money while providing you with efficient energy savings.

Tips & Tricks to Save You Money

  • ✓ Install an ENERGY STAR thermostat to optimize your system settings. According to EnergyStar.com, homeowners can save about $180 a year by changing thermostats to a new, digital, programmable thermostat and maintaining those settings.
  • ✓ Set your thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as is comfortable in the summer.
  • ✓ Have us perform preventive maintenance on your furnace during the off season to keep your system in good condition before you begin using it again. We offer seasonal discounted service rates. If you are on our Preventive Maintenance Plan, we’ll make sure this check up service is included automatically.
  • ✓ Turn off kitchen, bath, and other exhaust fans within 20 minutes after you are done cooking or bathing; when replacing exhaust fans, consider installing high-efficiency, low-noise models.
  • ✓ During the cooling season, keep the window coverings closed during the day to prevent solar gain.
  • ✓ Assess your home’s energy use by using the ENERGY STAR Home Energy Yardstick tool and take the ENERGY STAR room-by-room tour to see how else you can save energy.

“I am a general contractor. I first met Jeff on a job where we were unable to figure out a problem on a job. The problem had three other heating contractors stumped. Jeff analyzed the problem and had it resolved in a couple of days. He was very responsible, showing up when he said he would, and solved a problem no other heating contractors could resolve. He has earned my highest recommendation. I now refer him to all my clients who are looking for an HVAC expert.”
