$79 for a Furnace Cleaning and Super Tune-Up ($209 Value)
Techs give gas or electric furnaces a thorough once over during 26-point inspections. Services start with a check and cleaning of the burner, pilot assembly, and flame sensor. Techs then check and record electrical systems and adjust gas pressure. Next, they inspect the heat exchanger, hot-surface igniter and blower, and the capacitor and safety controls. Services conclude with a thermostat check and diagnosis of any unusual noises.
72 Degrees Heating and Air Conditioning
Because Steven Green, owner of 72 Degrees Heating and Air Conditioning, is so concerned with customer safety and satisfaction, all of the company’s technicians carry not only the Technician Seal of Safety—which denotes high industry standards in background checks, drug testing, and training—but also NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certifications. These technicians arrive at homes to perform repairs or preventative maintenance on indoor heating and cooling systems, ensuring that harsh weather never bothers homeowners unless they like to bathe in the yard. They’ve done plenty right so far—the technicians, who are also factory trained and certified in the use of infrared-camera inspection systems, earned four Angie’s List Super Service Awards between 2009 and 2010.
