When Is the Best Time for a Heating Tune-up?

Posted: September 5, 2022

Reasons to Get Your Maintenance Service Now

We always advise customers to look ahead and get a jump start on preparing for the heating season.

The most important thing you can do right now is to schedule a tune-up on your furnace, boiler or heat pump. Scheduling a propane gas safety check for your gas appliances is also highly recommended.

Why now? Our service schedule fills up rapidly in the fall, when the cooler weather makes everyone start paying attention again to their heating system. Fall storms and early cold snaps cause further complications because sometimes we have to cancel scheduled tune-up appointments so that we can respond to no-heat emergencies.

Why You Shouldn’t Skip Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is a vital money-saving investment for heating systems– not just because it can keep your equipment running safely and at peak efficiency, but also because history shows that four out of five heating system breakdowns are preventable if you follow the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations.

A tune-up also allows our expert technicians to spot minor issues before they become big problems (worn parts, a burner that needs adjustment, etc.) Problems tend to pop up during the worst times–such as when your furnace conks out during single-digit temperatures in the winter.

Don’t worry about getting a heating tune-up early; it won’t “wear off.” Instead, you’ll be all set to go when it’s time to turn on the heat.

Contact us today to request a heating system tune-up. Before the cold weather gets here, we also recommend enrolling in a service plan, either for your heating oil system, propane/natural gas system or heat pump system.

A service plan guarantees you a tune-up to prevent breakdowns, extend equipment life and cut energy costs by ensuring your system runs at peak efficiency. You will also save money with comprehensive repair coverage and rest easy with our promise of priority service should you ever have a no-heat emergency.
