It’s Time: Schedule Your Heating Maintenance Appointment Today

technician-looking-at-inside-of-heaterFall is officially here! That means heating season is here, too. Before too long, you’ll be using your heater to keep you warm for days on end. There are many things you can do to prep your home for the heating season, and one of the best things is to schedule professional heating maintenance in Tacoma, WA.

Keep reading to learn why heating maintenance is so vital to the health of your heating system, and why we urge you to get it done this season rather than waiting for wintertime.

The Importance of Professional Maintenance

Many of the problems that can negatively impact your heater are the type of things you won’t notice until they’ve already caused damage.  This is the leading reason we urge our customers not to wait for the symptoms of a problem to show up before they address it. The best way to deal with a problem without waiting for symptoms to appear is by scheduling preventive maintenance.

This service gives our professional technicians to closely examine the heating system and isolate any problems that might be forming. These problems can then be repairs before they have the chance to grow big enough that they threaten your heater as a whole.

This lessens the odds of a serious issue damaging your heating system by as much as 90%, and increases the energy efficiency of the heater by up to 40%! Doing this on a consistent basis can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of your heating system. To get the most out of your preventive maintenance, you’ll want to be consistent about scheduling it each year—which brings us to our next point.

Schedule Preventive Maintenance This Fall

The time of year you schedule your preventive heating maintenance has an effect on how effective that maintenance is. That said, we recommend Fall as the best time to have this service done, for a variety of reasons. First off, it ensures that your heating system is in the best condition possible before it needs to be used on a daily basis.

Secondly, Fall maintenance enables you to take advantage of the boost in heating efficiency right away.

We will say, it’s better to schedule maintenance later in the season than to not have it done at all. So, if you’ve come across this blog post in late fall or even winter, don’t worry—it’s not too late. We still recommend you have the service done. You may not get as much mileage out of the efficiency boost, but at least you’ll have the peace of mind that your system will get through the rest of the cooler seasons without giving you any trouble.

It’s much more important that you have your heating system maintenance done consistently each year than it is the time of the year you have it. The only time it’s too late is if the heater has completely broken down with no possibility of it being repaired—which is something you’ll never need to worry about if your system is professionally serviced and maintained each year.
