The Best Way to Avoid a Broken Heater This Winter: Maintenance!

Chances are that you would like to avoid a heater breakdown during the fall and winter seasons. The best way to do that is by prioritizing a tune-up for your heater ahead of the winter season. In fact, fall is a fantastic time to schedule heater maintenance so you can avoid a broken heater later in the season.

You can keep reading to learn more about what our team does during heating maintenance and why the service is so important. Then give our team a call to schedule your service now to stay ahead of the winter rush. Putting off service can mean that you wait even longer for it later in the season as we see an uptick in calls. 

Catch Problems Early

If you could choose between catching problems right now and fixing them or rolling the dice and potentially facing a heater breakdown later in the winter season, which one would you choose? Well, you really do have a choice. When you schedule a heater tune-up now, you are making the first choice. 

Our team can tighten screws and bolts and check your heater inside and out to make sure that each component is doing its part to provide heat for your home. When all of the components can work together effectively, there is less strain on the system overall and your heater can work more efficiently. But strain on even a single component can spread quickly and lead to your heater breaking down because the other components inside the unit cannot pick up the slack.

Elevate Efficiency

These steps don’t just help you ensure that your heater works all winter long. They also ensure that your heater works at its absolute best all winter long. This means that your heater uses as little energy as possible to produce heating results. The less energy that your heater uses, the less money that you spend from month to month.

If you’re used to seeing higher energy bills during the winter months for heating, a tune-up could change that for this year. Our team can address the problems causing inefficiency and even make other recommendations for keeping your home warm without spending a lot. Examples include setting reasonable temperatures on your thermostat, investing in more insulation and making sure that doors and windows are sealed to keep warm air inside.

Long-Term Benefits

And these benefits stack on top of each other from year to year. Ten years from now, your heater will maintain the same efficiency that it has now compared to losing efficiency and experiencing energy bills that constantly trend upward without stopping.

Many people think that high energy bills are something you just have to deal with. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Investing in tune-ups year after year can help you maintain energy efficiency all along. Consistency is the key. Plus, you’re also extending the lifespan of your heater so that it has the ability to go the distance and last for upwards of 30 years instead of having a shorter 15 to 20 year lifespan.
