It’s Time to Start Thinking About Heater Maintenance!

leaves-fallingYou might know fall as the season for crisp mornings and evenings, hot apple cider, and vibrant colored leaves. But it’s also the season for heater maintenance! Don’t wait until temperatures plummet to worry about maintaining your heater. At Rentmeister Total Home Service, we service furnaces, heat pumps, hybrid heating systems, geothermal, and ductless systems. If you need a knowledgeable and reliable HVAC contractor in Salt Lake City, UT, our technicians are more than qualified for the job.

Why You Need Maintenance

Prepare Your System

Temperatures are beginning to cool off here in Salt Lake City, but you probably haven’t turned on your heater in months. You want to make sure everything is up to par before putting this heater to the test of a Utah winter. If you were traveling cross-country in a car that sat in the garage for months, wouldn’t you want it to have a tune-up before the road trip? Apply this same preventative logic to your HVAC system too.

Prevent Breakdowns

When you have maintenance done on your system in the fall, it saves you from the stress and cost of an unplanned breakdown. Small repair issues develop into larger ones that take longer and cost more to fix than annual maintenance. You might notice some inconsistencies with your system, but only a professional technician can analyze your system and fix whatever problems they find there on the spot.

Extend Your System’s Lifespan

Scheduling furnace maintenance helps the longevity of your system. The average life expectancy of a furnace is pretty long (anywhere from 12 to 20 years) which is a great lifespan for a system with a large price tag. If you choose not to maintain your system, that estimate greatly decreases, running a system that’s poorly maintained causes unnecessary damage.

Save Money

When you have routine maintenance done, you’ll ensure that your system is always running at peak levels of efficiency. When your system is as efficient as possible, it also means that it’s as cost effective as possible too. This efficiency keeps your heating bill low. Without the right maintenance, you’ll notice the efficiency of your system slowly decreasing as the years roll by.

Ensure Your Safety

While a heater isn’t a danger in your home, the presence of carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous. This gas is so insidious because it’s colorless and odorless. Mild carbon monoxide poisoning causes headaches, dizziness, and nausea while more serious cases could land you or a loved one in the hospital. Having a technician come out and service your system before temperatures get chilly ensures that there’s no guesswork because a professional fortifies your home against any dangerous mishaps.
