With temperatures soaring well past the 90’s recently, it’s hard to imagine needing your heater. But you know as well as we do that when fall and winter roll around you’ll be very thankful for a fully functional and efficiently operating furnace or heating system. Of course, that heating system can only work as well as you expect if you properly care for it.
This means staying on top of repair needs, but most importantly in means scheduling maintenance for the system once a year (twice a year if you have a heat pump system). There’s no bad time to schedule this service, but now is the perfect time–before you actually need your system on a daily or even nightly basis.
Why It’s Time to Schedule Heating Maintenance
Now is the time to schedule your routine heating maintenance. We really want to stress the word routine. The thing is, we recommend heating maintenance be scheduled in or before the fall, because that’s before you need your heater the most.
But the truth is, consistency is what’s most important. You’ll want to ensure that your furnace or heating system is getting check on by a pro once a year. Doing so will benefit you in a number of ways, such as:
- Increasing Home Safety: One of the main tasks that our HVAC professionals do during heating tune-ups is check to ensure that your system is running safely, and doesn’t need any urgent repairs. This is particularly important for gas-powered heaters such as furnaces. While furnaces aren’t inherently unsafe, the use of natural gas can present unsafe circumstances.
- Improve Energy Efficiency: No matter what type of heating system you’re using, it will start losing energy efficiency if it goes too long without maintenance. This drop can end up being pretty steep within a few short years, resulting in your heater draining 25% more power than it should. Maintenance helps keep heating systems at peak efficiency for most of their service life.
- Fewer Repair Needs: About 85% of the repair needs an HVAC system may ever need in its lifetime can actually be prevented with proper maintenance, saving you hassles and money on repair costs!
- Extended Equipment Life: Replacing any type of heater years before its time is expensive and inconvenient, right? You want to get the most years possible from your heating system. But if that system is not regularly maintained, it will likely fail years earlier than it was meant to.
