With summer in full swing here in Sullivan County, your furnace or boiler are probably the last things on your mind. But summer is actually the perfect time to think about getting your heating system ready to go for the long heating season ahead!
Routine Heating Maintenance: The Key to Better Performance
Like any other mechanical device, your furnace or boiler needs regular service to keep it running its reliable best once the cool weather arrives. That’s true whether your equipment is new or old – but especially true if it has a number of winters under its belt!
The problem is that if you wait until the fall to schedule heating maintenance, you’ll run into a few issues: first, it will be harder to find a convenient appointment time, since quality heating technicians are working all day, every day. Second, if your system needs to be shut down for maintenance, it can get pretty uncomfortable for your family – especially if an unexpected cold front settles in.
Of course, the worst-case scenario is that you’ll discover the need to repair or even replace your heating system – something you definitely don’t want to once temperatures drop for good.
Reduce Bills, Save On Installations During the Summer
Another big advantage of taking care of your heating maintenance in the summer is that you’ll enjoy peak performance from day one of heating season. On average, your furnace or boiler will lose about five percent efficiency each year it is not properly maintained. If you’ve skipped a few years, that can have a big impact on your monthly energy bills. The sooner you get your equipment maintained, the sooner you’ll benefit from the energy savings!
