Now that the weather here in California is finally starting to cool down, it’s time to start preparing for winter. Before the bitter cold sets in, you want to make sure that your heater is in great shape. The very last thing you want is for your system to break down in the middle of winter, leaving you and your family to suffer through the cold. So, to ensure your heater is ready for the upcoming cold months, you need to schedule heater maintenance.
What Happens During a Maintenance Appointment?
When you schedule maintenance, your technician will carefully examine your entire heating system, run a full safety and performance check, lubricate motor components, tighten electrical connections, clean dirty parts, change the filter, inspect the thermostat, and identify any potential problem areas.
Why Is Maintenance So Important?
Routine heater maintenance is easily one of the most important home tasks. Unfortunately, many homeowners end up skipping out on this service and paying for it in a big way. In fact, lack of maintenance is actually the leading cause of early heater failure. To avoid dealing with unnecessary repairs and system replacements, you need to schedule maintenance.
Some of the key benefits of heater maintenance include:
- Improved indoor air quality: During maintenance, your filter is replaced and your HVAC system is cleaned, which means all of the dust, dirt, dander, and other contaminants that were built up in your system are removed before they get a chance to circulate through your home. This significantly improves your air quality.
- Greater energy efficiency: After tightening loose connections, lubricating motor parts, and cleaning dirty components, your system will function at peak performance. That means it won’t be wasting tons of energy and struggling to adequately heat your home.
- Extended lifespan: An unmaintained system struggles to move freely and keep your home comfortable, which puts a lot of stress on your heater. On the other hand, a properly maintained heater doesn’t experience that constant stress, which can significantly extend its lifespan.
- Long-term savings: Because maintenance significantly lowers your monthly energy bills and reduces the likelihood of repairs, you can expect to save plenty of money over time. And, you won’t have to worry about paying an arm and a leg to replace your system when it fails early due to lack of maintenance!
Most importantly, heater maintenance provides you complete and utter peace of mind. There is no better feeling than knowing your heater is in the best shape possible and your family won’t be left in the cold!
