5 Reasons Heating Tune-Ups are Worthwhile

Although it’s been unseasonably warm, you’ve probably started using your heater by now. Most homeowners expect their heating systems to work perfectly when they start to use them. But when was the last time you had your heater tuned up? 

If it’s been a while, now is the ideal time to schedule your heating repair in Milwaukee, WI. As the cold weather really starts to hit, you don’t want to discover that your furnace isn’t heating efficiently–or even worse, not working at all.

The Advantages of Annual Heater Tune-Ups

There are many advantages to getting your heating system checked out before you start using it regularly. Routine maintenance not only increases your system’s efficiency, but it also decreases your repairs and energy usage in the long run. Here are five reasons why heater tune-ups are worthwhile. 

1. Increase the Longevity of Your Heating System

It might help to look at regular tune-ups and routine maintenance as investments in your home’s heating system. The best way to increase the longevity of your system is through regular tune-ups. It doesn’t matter if your system is old or new–you still want it to work as efficiently as it can for as long as possible. Don’t void your warranty on a new furnace by neglecting routine maintenance. Avoid the early replacement of your system by maintaining it properly. 

2. Reduce the Need for Costly and Untimely Repairs

There’s nothing worse than unexpected and costly repairs to your home’s major systems. It doesn’t have to be that way. Did you know that 85% of repair needs for a heating system can be avoided through regular tune-ups? Avoid the headache, inconvenience, and expense of unexpected breakdowns by investing in regular tune-ups. 

3. Safety First

A furnace that hasn’t been properly maintained can be a safety hazard. This applies to both gas and electric furnaces. During a heater tune-up, our technicians will check for loose connections, frayed wires, malfunctioning sequencers, and other potential safety problems. Make sure your family is safe this winter by scheduling routine maintenance with our team of professionals.

4. Decrease Utility Bills and Save Energy

Did you know that when a heater is maintained regularly, it’ll operate at a rate of 95% efficiency? A heater that runs efficiently uses less energy. That’ll automatically result in a decrease in your utility bills and an increase in your energy efficiency. Saving money and being more environmentally friendly is a win-win in our books!

5. Avoid Emergency Repairs

No one wants their heater to break down, especially on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Day. Or even worse–on the coldest day of the year or with a blizzard in the forecast! Avoid the hassle and headache of a potentially costly and inconvenient emergency repair during the chilly holiday season by scheduling a tune-up now. 

Now’s the perfect time to get peace of mind knowing that your furnace will serve you and your family well throughout the winter.
