    When was the last time you had your unit cleaned and inspected?

    Now you have a problem with the unit. Fuel costs are skyrocketing.

    So why not call in a professional to repair the unit? While they are there they can clean and inspect your unit to insure a safe living environment for you and your loved ones. Not to mention, having an efficient running system could save you more than the cost of the service.

    What's your safety worth? I'm guessing more than the repair bill.

    What you're doing wrong is working on it yourself. For what you've already paid in parts, you could've just called a service company to start with. This isn't like cleaning your gutters or fixing a leaky faucet - if you do something wrong you could KILL someone.

    CALL A PROFESSIONAL BEFORE YOU GET HURT.

    Good? Bad? I'm the guy with the gun.
