Why You Should Get Your Heating System Tuned Up Today
It’s that time of year again! We know fall isn’t quite here yet, and that you’re probably still using your air conditioning system to stay comfortable. But for heating and air conditioning technicians, it’s an important time of year—the time when we remind homeowners to tune-up their heating systems. Many people don’t realize how important it is to tune-up a heater every year before they need to use it. But it’s a lot like owning a car. You know that you should go to a maintenance visit and get an oil change every few months to keep the car as fuel-efficient and repair-free as possible. Annual heating system tune-ups are similar.
What Happens During a Heating System Tune-Up?
Technicians will show up with a checklist of items to go through for your furnace (or alternative heating system type). They should complete a thorough inspection using specialty testing equipment and industry-approved techniques to see that the system is in good shape. Then, they may fine-tune some of the components as needed.
Why Do I Need this Service?
Scheduling a furnace/heater tune-up long before the heating season begins is the best way to make sure your furnace will work well for the winter. Here are the benefits of scheduling
Energy-Efficiency – Your heater may need less energy and fuel to run if the parts are tuned up, meaning lower monthly bills.
Fewer Repairs – One of the main reasons heaters tend to break down in the middle of winter is neglect. After your annual furnace service is complete, your heater is less likely to break down suddenly or need various little repairs that should have been handled preseason.
Safety – You’ll know that your home is safe after a heater inspection.
