Don’t Skip Heater Maintenance This Season

Heater maintenance is like an oil change: the light is on, but your car still runs, so why bother right now? After all, there are no obvious problems. Then a problem pops up, and hindsight is 20/20. Maintenance saves you from future stress by taking action today.

Before a heater breakdown happens and you’re stuck Googling “HVAC service near me” while scrambling to find a repair technician. Get a head start, be ahead of the curve, and learn why heater maintenance is the best thing you can do for your home this season.

Annual Inspections Promote a Longer Lifespan for Your Heater

When one part fails, the rest follow suit. Having continuous maintenance allows your technician to inspect each individual working part of your heater and find out what is working, and what isn’t. A simple inspection can unveil issues that would have otherwise waited to prevent themselves until you needed full-blown repairs.

Less wear and tear and breakdowns mean that as a whole, your heater lasts for a lot longer. You can extend your heater’s life by years and save yourself hundreds or thousands in repairs over its lifetime.

Pay Less for Repairs

With a well-maintained heater, less breaks down. While it’s unavoidable and you will need repairs at some point in the future, getting maintenance today means enduring less costly and time-consuming repairs in the future.

When one component fails it isn’t long before the damage can ripple and take other components with it. Maintenance reduces the likelihood of this happening, which also saves you money on future repairs.

Uphold That Warranty

Your heater came with a warranty. If you can still remember when it was installed and you have been the only owner since that point, you can use annual maintenance as a tool to maintain your warranty.

Read the fine print: most warranties require maintenance, otherwise, they can blame any inconsistencies or failures in their product on you. Keep your maintenance plan and you’ll keep your warranty, just be sure to understand all of the parameters.

Keep Your Family Safe

A non-maintained heater is a safety hazard for you and your entire family. Whether you use a combustion-style system or even an electric furnace, there are still safety concerns that need to be taken care of and fire hazards that need to be prevented.

For combustion-style units, annual maintenance helps you monitor and prevent carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is called the silent killer because it is odorless, colorless, and can kill those that come into contact with it. You can’t afford to skip maintenance when it comes to your family’s safety.

Maintenance Shouldn’t Be an Afterthought

Maintenance is the key to a long-lasting heater. Reduce your concern over fire hazards and air quality problems with regular maintenance, and take control of your home’s heating. Maintenance lowers your bills and your worries: there’s no reason to not schedule maintenance as soon as possible.

Contact us today to get started on your annually scheduled maintenance, and start prolonging the life of your heater today.
