Perhaps you haven’t put a whole lot of thought into the state of your heating system lately. We’d be a bit surprised if this was the case, since it’s certainly been cold here recently! But maybe you’re just relying on it to work as efficiently and effectively as ever without giving it a second thought.
We want you to give it a second thought! Scheduling maintenance, one of the most important heating services there is, is the only way you can ensure your system works as efficiently and effectively as possible, for as long as possible.
Professional maintenance allows our technicians to thoroughly clean, adjust, and inspect your heater for any problems, which we can alert you to right away so you can schedule service for your system. Read on as we talk more about this important service.
Is Maintenance Really Necessary?
Yes! Well… it is possible that your furnace or heating system will make it through the entirety of winter without a tune-up, but it will most likely be worse for the wear. Maintenance tune-ups are one of the best things you can do for your heater! When our technicians complete an inspection and tune-up, followed by any recommended repairs, your system improves in many ways, such as:
- Wear and tear on the system is reduced, which can potentially extend the system’s lifespan.
- You’ll have less repair needs–in fact, maintenance can help you avoid up to 85% of the repairs that an HVAC system may ever otherwise need.
- Your energy bills will decrease since your system will work more efficiently.
“My Heater’s New, Does It Still Need Maintenance?”
Okay, so a brand new heater–we’re talking, you bought it this winter–should have had the service it needed during the system’s installation. However, many homeowners believe that if they’ve had the heater for just a brief amount of time–anywhere from 1 to 5 years–then it doesn’t need service.
The thing is, however, even heating systems that were installed just a year ago can benefit from professional maintenance. First off, some HVAC warranties are only good if you have professional, routine maintenance done. Secondly, maintenance minimizes wear and tear, which reduces the chance of a sudden breakdown, and potentially increases the life of the system.
“Is It Too Late for This Service?”
Since winter has definitely already begun, you might think it’s too late for maintenance and want to hold it off until next year. But it’s never too late for this service! Consistency matters more than timing, here. Sure, it’s more convenient for you and for HVAC staff to get this done in the fall, before temperatures dip too much.
But the truth is, so long as you’re getting heater maintenance done once a year (or twice a year if you use a heat pump system), your unit will be in good shape!
