6 Reasons to Get Heating Maintenance This Fall

Many homeowners aren’t really sure that heating maintenance is necessary. They might feel it’s too costly, or they might not really see any good reason for it. But, getting heating maintenance on a yearly basis is important for your equipment – here are a few reasons why:

  1. It helps your heating equipment operate more efficiently. Over time, the inner components of your heating system, as well as your filter, can become dirty – and that can cause your system to have to work harder. The harder your system works, the more energy it uses, causing your equipment to operate less efficiently and your utility bills to rise. Maintenance helps ensure your system is clean and efficient!
  2. Maintenance allows for more effective heating. Through time and frequent use, your heating equipment collects dust, dirt, and debris – and this can build up inside your unit and make it hard for the components to move properly. Annual maintenance includes cleaning your system, allowing all the moving parts to work freely – helping your system heat your home more effectively.
  3. Your warranty will remain intact. Most equipment warranties require you as a homeowner to get regular maintenance in order to preserve the warranty on the equipment. Failure to do so can cause the warranty to become void – and that means you might have to pay out-of-pocket for expensive repairs or replacements.
  4. Your technician may find small problems that can easily be remedied. When it comes to major equipment like furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps, it’s much easier to take care of problems before they become larger – and much more expensive. By getting annual maintenance, your technician will have a better understanding of how your system works and its history – helping them catch small problems during maintenance.
  5. Your heating system will likely last longer. Getting maintenance not only helps your system run better on a yearly basis; it also helps it last for years to come. With proper maintenance, your system will be cleaned and tuned up every year, and any small issues will be taken care of right away. All that adds up to longer system life – and that means big savings, as equipment replacement can be costly.
  6. The air in your home may be cleaner. This is especially true if you have a forced-air heating system, where the heated air is delivered from room to room via your home’s ductwork. When your system is dirty, the air that flows through it becomes dirty as well. And, that air just keeps circulating through your home. A clean system and fresh filter help keep your home’s air cleaner, too!
