Just like any other appliance or major piece of equipment in your home, your heating system needs a certain amount of care to continue functioning at the high level you expect it to. This means making sure that you schedule routine maintenance once a year—or twice a year if you’re using a heat pump.
Even if your heater is relatively new, it’s really never too early to start planning to keep it in good working order. Regular maintenance appointments are the best way to make sure your system will always work when you need it to. But what do you get out of these maintenance appointments? Read on to find out.
Increased Energy Efficiency
One of the biggest advantages of regular heating system maintenance is the boost you’ll see in your system’s energy efficiency—which will be reflected in lower utility bills as well. It’s important to realize that even the newest and most efficient furnace will lose a certain amount of energy efficiency every year. This drop may not be noticeable at first, but it will quickly add up and create higher heating costs for you.
Fewer Repair Needs
A regularly scheduled heating tune-up allows our heating professionals to inspect your entire heating system in order to find any parts that should be replaced and any other issues that can create problems later on down the line. Addressing small problems as early as possible reduces the chance that you’ll need emergency repairs in the dead of winter when you need your heater the most.
Less Chance of Premature Replacement
By keeping up with regular heating system maintenance, you’ll effectively extend the life of your system, making your initial investment go farther, and allowing you to go longer before having to replace the system. This is great for both your wallet and for your peace of mind!
