It’s Time to Get Your Heater Fired Up for Fall!

It’s officially Autumn! It’s time for warm, woolen sweaters, cozy blankets, apple picking, and of course, the ever-popular pumpkin spice latte! But, do you know what else Fall is the perfect time for? Yes, that’s right: heating maintenance!

Okay, maybe you are not quite as excited about scheduling your maintenance services as we are, but trust us, you definitely don’t want to miss out. In fact, there are a number of reasons why maintenance is important, and below, we have listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading below to find out more! (Oh yeah, and of course, remember to schedule your HVAC service in Alexandria, VA with us!)

The Benefits of Maintenance

Like we mentioned above, there are a number of reasons why maintenance is beneficial to your heater:

Fewer Repairs

During your maintenance visit, your technician will inspect every inch of your system in order to locate and correct minor issues before they become major. That way, you won’t have to worry about spending hundreds of dollars on costly repairs! You see, annual maintenance is perhaps the best way to reduce the number of repairs your heater will need over the course of its life.

Extended Service Life

You want to get the most out of your heater, right? Then schedule maintenance services! Annual maintenance is key to ensuring the long and successful service life of your system—with regular service, you can expect your heater to last you for many many winters to come!

Better Efficiency

Here’s the deal: a heater that forgoes annual maintenance is going to end up costing you much more money over the course of its life. Why? Because for each year that it misses maintenance, it’ll lose about 5% of its total efficiency! That’s a whole lot of wasted energy! But, with maintenance, your heater will retain 95% of its initial efficiency. Don’t pay more than you have to for comfort!

Maintenance is More Than Just a Cleaning

Many homeowners skip out on annual maintenance services because they see it as nothing more than just a “good cleaning.” But here’s the thing: annual maintenance is much more than that! During your maintenance visit, your technician will inspect every inch of your system, lubricate moving parts, check for repairs, change out your air filters, and make any adjustments necessary to boost efficiency and performance. And yes, they’ll do some cleaning too.

So, What Are You Waiting For?
