Why Fall Heating Inspections and Tune-Ups Are So Important

A service that we strongly push for during this time of the year is the professional inspection and tune-up of residential heating systems. When you arrange for regular heating maintenance through our Proactive Service Agreement, one of our skilled technicians will come to your house each fall and see that your furnace or other heater is fully inspected, cleaned, and adjusted. (Here’s more details about what happens during maintenance.)

We don’t just recommend that homeowners do this. It’s essential to have it done each year! Here are some of the reasons why:

It will keep a heater working safely

The majority of homes use natural gas furnaces to provide heat because of their high power and low cost to run. A gas furnace isn’t inherently dangerous, but it can start to turn dangerous if it’s neglected each fall. Inspections carefully look for areas where the furnace can develop hazards from leaks (such as cracked heat exchangers) or the build-up of gas (failed limit switch).

It reduces the amount of repairs a heater might need

On average, 85% of the repairs that a heater may require during its service life are preventable with annual inspections and tune-ups. That adds up to big savings because of all those repairs you don’t have to pay for.

It prolongs a heater’s service life

Reducing the amount of repairs and relieving the stress on a heater will help it work for more years before it needs to be replaced. Thanks to maintenance, you can expect your heater to return your initial investment on it with many years of operation.

It provides peace of mind

You don’t want to worry about your heating system failing on you during one of the coldest days of the year. But the only way to have solid peace of mind that your heater is capable of making it through the season without problem is to have it tuned-up before the cold weather arrives.
