Heater Maintenance: Now Is the Perfect Time

Now that it’s officially October, it’s time to start shifting gears to focus on heating systems instead of air conditioners. You can feel the change in the air, especially at night when things cool down a lot. It’s only going to get chillier throughout the year, so we believe that the earlier our customers can take care of their heating systems, the better they’ll be for the next few months.

Of course one of the ways that people can take full advantage of their heating systems is with heater maintenance in Slidell, LA. This service is going to improve the output of your heating system, keep its efficiency level high, and also help it last a long time. Since temperatures aren’t quite “cold” yet, it’s the perfect opportunity to start getting your heater ready for winter with such a valuable service.

Let’s talk about why now is the perfect time for heating maintenance, and how it’s going to help you going forward!

What Is Heater Maintenance?

It’s important to figure out what heater maintenance is before investing in it. Just like any purchase, you probably want to know what you’re purchasing before you spend that money, right? Well, let’s get to it!

Heater maintenance is a service we provide where a professional technician inspects your heating system and provides minor upgrades, improvements, adjustments, and more. We basically check the heater for any faults that can be easily fixed or righted, and if they’re more complicated, we can work with you to schedule repairs in the future. This type of tune-up is an amazing way to get the most out of your heating system for the future.

A well-maintained heating system is going to work better than a neglected one in a variety of different ways.

The Benefits of Routine Maintenance

Want some specifics on how routine maintenance is going to help you? Well, look no further than this list!

  • Safety. If you’re the proud owner of a gas furnace, then you’re going to want to invest in maintenance for the safety element. When we inspect gas furnaces, we make sure they work up to our safety standards and aren’t endangering their owners. This is amazing for any homeowners that might be nervous about a gas leak or carbon monoxide.
  • Efficiency. A heater that’s been tuned up every year is going to consume less fuel or electricity than one that’s been neglected. You can expect to lose about 5% of the system’s efficiency with every year of maintenance that’s skipped. That adds up!
  • Comfort. Take it from us, heaters that experience a tune-up often run more accurately and reach the thermostat’s desired temperature more easily. This can be great when temperatures finally dip down at night.
  • Convenience. A tuned-up heating system is going to run easily with fewer hitches than a system that’s been neglected. This means a lower chance of requiring repairs in the future. Nice, right?

We could go on but the truth is that maintenance isn’t about one large benefit, but rather a whole host of smaller benefits that add up over time. Get the most out of your heater by investing in maintenance today.
