heater tune-up

Every Fall, we make sure our home is prepared for winter by reviewing our fire alarms, ensuring all doors and windows are locked, and checking the weather forecast. But it’s also essential to do heater maintenance on your heating system. This includes having it inspected, cleaned, serviced, and ready to meet the demands of chilly temperatures.

We’ve gathered the top five reasons to get a heater tune-up before winter comes around. We’re heating things up (see what we did there?)!

#1 Keep Your Home Comfortable

A heater tune-up this Fall can keep your system running at peak performance. Unfortunately, in the jumble of complex parts that make up a modern heating unit, problems usually begin with minor issues like dirty filters or clogged ducts.

This, in turn, leads to poor circulation and inefficient heat distribution. So, a thorough Fall furnace inspection will not only put your mind at ease, but it could save you money in wasted energy costs.

#2 Heater Tune-Ups Save You Time & Headaches During Emergencies

Running into problems with your heater during cold weather is frustrating and inconvenient, but it can also turn dangerous very quickly if it cannot produce heat as needed.

Instead, have a professional take care of repairs or replacements before winter comes, with a Fall heater tune-up, so you will be ready regardless of what Mother Nature has in store.

This way, you won’t have to worry about waking up early on Christmas morning just because Santa decided to leave a little something extra in your stocking.

#3 Create Safe Air for Home & Family

Before your annual furnace tune-up, take the time to clean or replace your air filter. If you haven’t replaced yours recently (or ever), now is the time to do so.

It only takes about five minutes and will help ensure cleaner indoor air throughout the season. All this while protecting everyone from potential health risks like asthma and allergies.

#4 Extend the Life of Your Heating System

An annual tune-up can help prolong the life of your system, as well as reduce its overall energy usage. This means less wear and tear on many components, as well as a more negligible impact on your monthly utility bills.

We recommend having your heating unit serviced every year before the winter months set in. This will ensure home comfort and safe air for all those cold nights ahead!

#5 It’s Time for a Heater Tune-Up When…

It’s been several years since you’ve had your system professionally inspected and repaired. Most HVAC systems need professional repairs every 5 to 10 years.

So if it’s been a while since your last tune-up, now is the perfect time to have one done before winter gets here.

In addition to safety, your heating contractor can also inspect other aspects of your furnace. For example, they can help diagnose any system noises that you may have become familiar with over the years. They can also tell you what to expect for maintenance or repair of these noises.

Then, if it’s time for repairs or replacement, they’ll make sure to get everything up to date to keep you safe and comfortable.

Get Tuned-Up Before Winter Hits

Your heater is already working double-time to keep your home warm, so help give it a boost by having a heater tune-up. You’ll save money on energy bills while keeping yourself safe and cozy all winter long.
