Make Sure You Sign Up for Heating Maintenance before Winter Arrives!
The HVAC system in your home should have regular inspections and tune-ups done twice a year. During the spring, this maintenance will take care of your air conditioner. In the fall, the maintenance will focus on your heating system.
With winter looming on the horizon, now is the time to give our technicians a call and arrange for preventive maintenance service. We’ll send out one of our trained team members to see that your heater is ready for the rigors of the winter.
Here are some of the reasons you never skip annual fall heating maintenance:
- Longer equipment life: If a heater doesn’t receive routine cleanings and adjustments, it will wear down much faster. You can’t expect a heating system to reach its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan unless it has maintenance done every year. In fact, it might not even make it halfway!
- Energy efficient performance: Like any mechanical device, a heater will start to wear down as it runs. If this deterioration is left unchecked, it will cause the system to start consuming more power to operate than it should. For every year that a heater goes without maintenance, it will lose on average 5% of its efficiency—and that will quickly add up to higher bills. But if you continue routine maintenance, you can expect your heater to keep 95% of its efficiency for most of its lifespan.
- Fewer repair needs: The majority of repairs a heating system may need during its lifetime can be prevented thanks to catching the troubles early on during maintenance.
- Prevent emergency breakdowns: This is the best reason to always schedule fall maintenance. A furnace that has its regular tune-ups is much less likely to abruptly breakdown during a cold day, leaving you trapped without heat until repairs can reach you.
