Home comfort during the worst winter weather relies on functional heating equipment. Are you ready for whatever the New Jersey winter will bring? To help you enter the heating season with confidence this year, be sure to schedule a heating tune-up before the weather turns too cold.
You may be tempted to skip heating maintenance to save money, but once you understand the benefits you stand to gain, you’ll realize the cost of a heating tune-up actually pays for itself. Be prepared for these benefits when you schedule maintenance this fall:
If you want to improve your home’s performance and reduce your individual effect on the environment, maintaining your furnace or heat pump is a great place to start. Important tasks such as cleaning the burners to improve heat transfer and oiling moving parts to reduce friction help your heating equipment run more efficiently. This allows you to heat your home while consuming less fuel, which benefits the environment.
Improving heating efficiency doesn’t just help the environment – it benefits your wallet as well. After all, the less fuel your heater uses, the lower your energy bills are. Many facets of heating maintenance increase efficiency and help you keep your home more comfortable, all while lowering your monthly utility bills. This is the first way in which heating maintenance pays for itself.
It’s much more convenient to schedule a visit on your own time than to wait until your system breaks down in the middle of a New Jersey blizzard. This could leave your home without heat for hours or even days until an HVAC company swamped with emergency repair requests can get to you. Since maintenance focuses on fixing problems in their developing stages, you can often avoid mid-season breakdowns altogether. This saves you the hassle and expense of an emergency repair later on.
The same way a car that receives regular oil changes and tune-ups will likely reach 100,000 miles and beyond, a well-maintained heating system will last several years longer, performing with maximum efficiency through its final season in use. On the other hand, a neglected furnace or heat pump will fail prematurely, forcing you to invest in new equipment sooner. By helping your equipment last, maintenance can save you thousands on premature equipment replacement costs.
While you can schedule maintenance for your heating equipment any time of year, fall is the ideal season for a tune-up. This timing helps your heating system perform its best all winter because repairs and adjustments can be put to good use immediately. Plan to schedule maintenance once a year around the time you shut off your air conditioner for the season.
