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.
We often hear people asking what the point is in scheduling maintenance if you will still eventually need heating system repairs. There are several ways that maintenance benefits the system you use for heating in Sandy, UT.
It Improves Energy Efficiency
Maintenance can help improve your heater’s energy efficiency. Without maintenance your system can lose a good chunk of its efficiency each year, making it increasingly expensive to warm your home. When you schedule a maintenance appointment, though, your heating unit should be able to maintain a good deal of its efficiency, keeping you warm and saving your wallet.
It Reduces Repair Needs
Having a professional provide a yearly maintenance tune-up for your heater can actually reduce the number of repairs you need to have done. This is because a multitude of the issues that later become repair needs can be caught beforehand with maintenance. For example, a broken fan blade can be fixed when it is simply beginning to come loose.
It Maximizes Lifespan
Improved energy efficiency and fewer repairs both add up to one huge benefit: a longer lifespan for your heater. A heater that struggled to do its job and has to work increasingly hard to produce warmth will, in contrast, last far fewer years than one that is well-maintained. Why is this a benefit? Well, because replacing your system isn’t the least expensive thing out there and it is better to keep replacements few and far between if possible.
The Benefit of Working with Professionals
Whether you have a heat pump, a furnace, or another heating system, you should always work with a professional to get it taken care of. Only a trained professional HVAC technician has the tools and know-how that will allow them to ensure your heater stays in good working order as long as you need it to. In comparison, amateur services out your system at risk and may end up costing you more in repairs or, worse, an early replacement.
