The Importance of Tuning Up Your Heater in the Fall

You might not be ready to run your heating system full-time just yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about services. Your heating system put in a lot of work last season, and you can expect some standard wear and tear to have developed. Professional heating maintenance, in which a professional cleans and adjusts your system, helps to reduce this wear and tear, making it easier for your system to run and giving you all of the following benefits.

Improved Efficiency

One of the most important reasons to schedule regular maintenance is that a worn down, dirty system requires a lot of energy to run. All of the parts have to work extra hard to keep you comfortable, and that can result in much higher costs on your monthly utility bills. With a heater tune-up, the pressure is adjusted, screws are tightened, connections are made more securely, and the system can run at peak efficiency once more.

Better Performance

Thankfully, many heating companies offer 24/7 emergency repair services, but this isn’t an ideal phone call for any homeowner to make. If you get adjustments made to your heating system and have many of the parts cleaned off, the heater is less likely to need emergency repairs this heating season. Additionally, an inspection should inform you of any problems you need to watch out for or schedule services to correct.

Longer Lifespan

This is the reason we emphasize the important of consistent heating maintenance visits each year. If you schedule maintenance once each year early on in the heating season (before fall begins) your system could actually last months or even years longer than it would have otherwise.
