The short answer is no – it’s not too early for heating maintenance! In fact, the timing is perfect. Fall is around the corner, and that means soon you’ll be turning on your heater for the winter. It’s still warm outside, so heating your home probably isn’t at the top of your mind – but it should be. When you switch your HVAC system from cooling to heating, you want it to warm your home perfectly without any hiccups.
The best way to do that is to schedule heating maintenance between now and when you turn your heater on for the first time. If you’re skeptical about the importance of heating maintenance, we can help you understand why it’s so important. Give us a call to learn more, or read on to see how a heating tune-up can benefit your home.
Why Schedule Heating Tune-Ups
You change the oil in your car, rotate the tires, and replace parts like air filters when needed. Why not do the same for your HVAC system? We know that having to schedule another appointment, set aside time in your day, and spend money isn’t on your to-do list. But when it comes to your heating and cooling, it should be.
And remember, if you don’t schedule tune-ups each year, you’ll eventually have to schedule a repair instead. Heating maintenance is an opportunity to address problems before they begin. Our experts can tighten screws, clean out dust and lubricate joints.
What to Expect
During a maintenance appointment, our team inspects your heating system from top to bottom. We address any concerns that we notice and offer our recommendations. Here’s what you can expect from a heating maintenance appointment:
- System longevity – Your system will last longer because you address concerns early rather than putting them off.
- Fewer repairs – Regularly scheduled maintenance can prevent up to 85% of future repair needs. That means you have less chances of a surprise repair thanks to regular inspections, and your heater will work when you need it to.
- Peace of mind – If your heater uses gas, that poses additional risks for your home. Gas leaks can lead to health issues and fire hazards. Regular inspections ensure that your gas lines are always secure.
- Efficiency – As parts take on wear and tear, your entire system loses efficiency. A tune-up can help you earn some of that efficiency back, saving you money on your monthly energy bills. Instead of losing 5% efficiency each year, which is the average, you can maintain 95% efficiency over the life of your heating system.
- Fewer emergencies – There’s nothing worse than realizing your heater stopped running after a long day at work. You want to come home to feel warm and cozy, and instead it’s somehow colder inside than it is outside. While you can’t prevent emergency repairs 100% of the time, you can lessen the chance of one by investing in maintenance.
