Time For Some Heating System TLC!

Why you should prioritize maintenance this season

spring hvac tune-up new yorkSpring has finally come to Sullivan County, and while it might seem counterintuitive, now is the best time to think about your heating system. Warmer days are putting less of a demand on your heating system, but before you know it, the leaves will be changing color and there will again be a chill in the air. You don’t want to discover your heating system isn’t up to the task of keeping your family warm all winter when winter is here or just around the corner. Now is the best time to make sure your heating system will be there for you when you need it.

The Importance of Regular HVAC Service

Don’t make the mistake of forgetting about your heating system all spring and summer. Now is the best time to schedule a maintenance visit with Black Bear Fuel Oil, Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. We’ll make sure your system is running efficiently and trouble-free.

The Time Is Now

Spring is the best time to schedule your maintenance visit because it’s usually a low-cost season in terms of heating and cooling and a less busy time for us. During the summer you’ll have the additional expense of keeping your air conditioning up and running. By the time autumn rolls around, you’ll find it harder to schedule a maintenance visit. It’s one of our busier seasons for heating system maintenance and repairs. So from a budgeting and scheduling perspective, now is the best time to schedule a maintenance visit for your heating system.

What to Expect

Annual maintenance visits are designed to address any wear and tear and get ahead of any potential problems before they become serious and disruptive. Taking care of your HVAC system today can prevent inconvenient (and more expensive) repairs down the road, keep your equipment running efficiently (which lowers your energy bills), and helps extend the life of your heating system.

Annual HVAC maintenance is much more than just swapping out a filter. Here are a few of the other tasks Black Bear will do during your annual maintenance visit this spring:

  • We’ll inspect your system to look for potential problems.
  • We’ll examine the fuel lines and points of connection.
  • We’ll inspect exhaust outlets to check for damage like leaks or corrosion.
  • We’ll check any electrical connections and voltage.
  • We’ll carefully lubricate all moving parts.
