Is It Ever Too Late for Heating Maintenance?

Monday, March 2nd, 2020

hvac-ventWith the official end of winter just a few short weeks away, it’s easy to assume that heating maintenance would be pointless, now. But this isn’t actually the case. Unless your system has completely broken down and needs replacement, it’s never too late for heating maintenance.

Maintenance tune-ups accomplish 3 very important things for your heating system; they ensure the system is thoroughly cleaned, they ensure any components that are loose or wearing down are adjusted or replaced, and they help our technician spots signs of repair needs so we can alert you do them. This will help your system out, and your energy bills out, no matter what time of the year it is!

How? By contributing to:

Energy Savings:

You may think you’d save money by skipping maintenance, but the truth of the matter is the opposite. In fact, one of the biggest advantages of routine maintenance is that it helps your furnace or heat pump work more efficiently, letting you get more comfort while consuming less energy.

And energy savings means monetary savings! When you trust our technicians for your heating maintenance, you can rely on a heater that will work as effectively and efficiently as possible.

Improved Comfort:

Let’s face it, we have chilly winters! We want to be as comfortable as possible indoors during those colder days. And to do this, we need the best heating service available. One way to achieve this is by staying on top of maintenance.

During your maintenance tune-up, as we mentioned above, our technicians thoroughly inspect your system, cleaning it, making adjustments, and checking for repair needs—all of which help it to work at its best. A more efficient and powerfully operating heater will bring you the most comfort for your money.

Longer System Lifespan

Depending on the manufacturer of your heat system and how well your unit was installed, a well-maintained heat pump of furnace can last about 10-15 years on average. But skipping maintenance means this number can drop down significantly, and you may find yourself facing premature replacement needs, plus the costs that go along with it.

Maintenance helps our technicians catch small problems before they grow into much bigger emergencies and cause a negative domino effect. This means that when components need replacing, those replacements are done quickly so your heater can fend-off wear and tear longer.
