Heating System Tune-ups: Why Get One Now?

Heating System Tune-ups: Why it’s Smart to Get One Now

Posted: August 10, 2020

Is it really August already? Summer always seems to go past us faster than the other seasons do. We know you have a lot on your plate right now and each day seems to bring all of us another worry. That’s why we suggest you look ahead and get a jump start on preparing for the heating season.

The most important thing you can do 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 recommended.

Why now? Our service schedule fills up fast in the fall, when everyone starts paying attention 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.

The importance of 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 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 heating oil service plan, a propane/natural gas service plan, or a heat pump service plan.

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.

And if you think it’s time to replace your old heating system, now is also the time to get this done. You’ll have plenty of time to weigh your options and make an informed decision about a replacement system.

Remember, we follow all safety measures, including the wearing of gloves and masks, and the use of hand sanitizers. We rigidly adhere to safe, contactless service and installation. You can arrange to leave a key in the event you do not want to be at home during our tune-up service, Or, you can communicate with our technician on his cell phone, even if you are in the house. Please let us know before he gets there.
