It’s Not Too Late for Heating Maintenance

Winter is officially upon us, and you may be thinking that it’s too late to schedule heater maintenance if you haven’t already. But it is never too late! As long as your heater is operating—and even if you think your heater is experiencing issues—you can schedule a maintenance appointment.

In fact, scheduling maintenance proactively is the best way to stay ahead of heating repair in Metairie, LA. We can check all of the components to make sure that your heater is working great so it’s ready to face the rest of the winter season. You can keep reading to learn more about why you want to schedule heater maintenance right now if you haven’t already this year.

Furnace Maintenance

Whether you have a gas or electric furnace, the system requires maintenance. No matter what type of heater is in your home, annual maintenance is important to prioritize. Gas furnaces usually require more action during a maintenance appointment compared to electric furnaces, which need less work.

Either way, a tune-up appointment is an opportunity for our team to check the system inside and out and make tweaks that allow your furnace to operate at its best all season long. Skipping out on the service can lead to bigger problems later on. You may think that you’re saving money, but you’re really spending more later on.

Boiler Maintenance

Boilers are typically very low maintenance. Like any other heating system, it’s important to schedule an annual checkup just as a precaution. But usually, our team doesn’t have to complete too many steps during a boiler maintenance appointment. Still, boilers do face more risks compared to other types of heaters.

If a boiler overheats or the pressure inside of the system gets too high, a boiler can explode. While this is a rare occurrence, it is also a definite possibility. Aside from keeping a close eye on how your boiler operates from month to month, professional maintenance is a great way to stay ahead of any potential problems.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Heat pumps operate as both heaters and air conditioners, so maintenance is different for the systems. You should schedule maintenance for a heat pump twice each year. One appointment is for your heat pump is an air conditioner while the other appointment is for your heat pump as a heater.

If you’ve already scheduled maintenance once this year, you may think that you’re off the hook. However, we encourage you to schedule a second appointment to make sure that your heat pump is operating the way it should as a heater for the current winter season. Maintenance isn’t just great for now; it’s also an opportunity to make sure that your heat pump has the most potential for a long and successful lifespan.
