Keeping your heating system in good working order is about more than just keeping your home and family warm. It’s also about preventing your pipes from freezing and other costly and potentially serious issues from arising. Unfortunately, most people don’t give this much thought until something goes wrong.
The good news is, with a little proactive maintenance, you can avoid the potential expense and headache of a system breakdown. And the earlier you schedule a tune-up for your heating system, the better – for a number of important reasons. Here are the seven biggest benefits of an early-season tune-up.
When your system is running at peak performance, it operates more efficiently, which means you’ll spend less on energy bills to keep your home warm and comfortable. PLUS, you’ll reduce the risk of costly repairs, which means more money in your pocket. (See below for additional ways to save $$$.)
Improve Air Quality
For homes that have forced air heating, scheduling regular service can help limit the amount of soot and sediment that builds up throughout the year so the air your family breathes will be cleaner and healthier.
Well-maintained heating systems run cleaner, which means less wasted fuel. If you’re looking for ways to go green, having your heating system routinely tuned up is a great way to do so.
If your system is covered under a manufacturer’s warranty, you want to keep up with maintenance – otherwise, your warranty could be voided. And replacing your boiler or furnace can be a big expense. By keeping up with routine maintenance, you’ll extend the life of your existing unit and avoid having to pay out of pocket for things that would otherwise be covered.
Heating units produce exhaust. If a leak develops in the exhaust line of your unit, it could result in a serious or even deadly carbon monoxide hazard. An experienced technician performing a system checkup can spot these potential hazards so they can be addressed right away.
There’s no worse time for a heating system failure than in the dead of winter (especially in New England). By taking care of system tune-ups, maintenance and repairs early in the season, you can mitigate this risk and enjoy peace of mind all winter long.
Last, but not least, the earlier you schedule your heating system tune-up, the more likely you’ll be to get an appointment that suits your schedule. As the season goes on, technicians will inevitably get busier, which will make it harder to find a time slot that’s convenient for you.
Keeping up with your heating system is an important part of home ownership – particularly when it comes to winters in the Northeast. At Wilson Brothers, we want to make the entire process as easy and cost-effective as possible.
