It’s That Time of Year: Heating Maintenance!

With temperatures just barely mellowing out in the last week, it may be hard to believe that it’s already time to start thinking about shutting down our air conditioners for the season and turning our attention toward our heaters. Still though, when you need that heater on a daily basis, you’ll be glad you chose to take good care of it.

And just how do you take good care of a heating system? Well, by scheduling routine maintenance for the unit! Each year, or every 6 months if you have a heat pump system, you should have a full inspection and cleaning done for your heater. Read on to learn just why this is so important!

The Importance of Professional Heating Maintenance

Most of the problems that can impact your heater are the type of thing you may not even notice until it’s rendered your heating system unusable. This is the primary reason you don’t want to wait for symptoms of a problem to show up before caring for your heater. The best way to care for your heater is with routine maintenance.

Preventative heating maintenance gives our technicians the chance to closely inspect your system and isolate any problems that might be forming. These smaller issues can be repaired before they even have the chance to grow into something bigger and lead to a potential emergency breakdown.

Maintenance can help lessen the odds of serious heating system problems by as much as 85% and can help retain 95% of its original energy efficiency. Investing in routine maintenance will ultimately save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the lifespan of your system, and can ensure that lifespan isn’t cut in half by preventable problems.

Why Fall Is the Best Time for a Tune-Up

Consistency is what’s most important when it comes to heating maintenance. But, scheduling it in the fall does benefit your system. This is because fall is before you’ll need the heater the most. It sets you up for success and lessens the chance that you’ll experience an unexpected breakdown when you need your system the most this winter. Additionally, scheduling maintenance now lets you take immediate advantage of the boost in efficiency that you get from a tune-up, ultimately saving you money and improving your home comfort.

But, like we said, consistency is key! It’s far better to schedule maintenance later in the season than to not have it done at all. So if you’ve come across this blog post in the middle of winter and you skipped fall maintenance, we still suggest that you schedule a tune-up. Sure, you might not get as much mileage out of the efficiency this season, but you’re improving the chances of your heater lasting longer and keeping you comfortable for the years to come.
