It’s freezing outside. Literally. It snowed last week. So why are we discussing heater maintenance? It is, in no way, shoulder season, that much is true. However, what is also true is the fact that no matter how late in the year it is, late-season maintenance is, and always will be, better than no maintenance at all.

Why? Because having your heater suddenly breakdown during a cold spell is so much worse.

You still might not be convinced and we can understand why. Heater maintenance in the middle of winter isn’t ideal but again it is always better than the alternative. With that said, we want to make sure you understand the benefits of scheduling maintenance, even late in the season.

Your heater has been doing a great job of keeping you warm over the years.

We suggest this because, aside from those noises being annoying, they are a sign that something needs fixing within your furnace heating system.
