home heating Winter weather has been doing a number on Central Maine. How’s your home heating system holding up?

Home heating systems should get an annual maintenance tune-up, ideally before each heating season. But even though we’re already in January, it’s not too late! Getting a heating system tune-up now will help keep your heating system running smooth no matter how long winter weather sticks around.

Why are boiler and furnace tune-ups important?

Having a professional service technician perform maintenance on your furnace or boiler offers four distinct advantages.

Prevent heating system breakdowns: Did you know that regular maintenance for your home heating system can help you avoid costly repair bills? In fact, four out of five of the jobs we handle could have been prevented with regular, professional maintenance. By having our skilled team perform a furnace or boiler tune-up, not only do you ensure the smooth operation of your system, but you also give us the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive inspection. During this inspection, we can identify and resolve potential issues before they escalate into major problems, thereby preventing unexpected breakdowns or expensive repairs.

Keep your heating system energy efficient: To optimize the energy efficiency of your boiler or furnace, it is crucial to schedule regular professional maintenance. By enhancing the efficiency of your home heating system, you can potentially save up to 10% on your heating bill. Given that home heating expenses typically constitute around half of your home’s winter energy costs, the potential savings can be quite substantial!

Help your furnace or boiler last longer: Your home’s furnace or boiler is a major investment. Regular maintenance of heating systems significantly extends their lifespan when compared to systems that are neglected. As a result, you can delay the necessity of a replacement and ultimately maximize your return on investment.

Keep the warranty valid: To uphold your warranty, most manufacturers mandate annual professional servicing of your home heating system. Failing to adhere to these tune-ups can lead to warranty invalidation and leave you accountable for expensive repairs down the line. Prioritizing regular maintenance is vital to safeguard your warranty and steer clear of unforeseen expenses.
