We know that things haven’t exactly been chilly lately, but fall is just around the corner. And with fall (and sometimes even before fall) comes a drop in temperature. So while the weather during the day may be warm for the moment, this means that now is actually the best time to get your heater maintenance in Milwaukee taken care of.
You might roll your eyes at this. You have time, yes, but getting this service done early can help you in multiple ways. Let’s discuss some of the benefits you’ll enjoy when you schedule your heater tune-up today.
How Maintenance Benefits You and Your Heater
Wondering if maintenance for your heating system is really worth the time and money? It absolutely is! Here are some of the best benefits you’ll enjoy when you get a tune-up from our team.
Better energy efficiency: Your heater stands to lose about 5% of its energy efficiency each year that it doesn’t receive maintenance. This adds up over time and can lead to a heating system that is expensive to run. But with a tune-up each year, you’ll enjoy a system that can keep up to 95% of its original efficiency level. This applies to both gas and electric heaters.
Better heating for the house: A well-maintained heater will be far more likely to do its job correctly. Getting a tune-up addresses a variety of small inefficiencies that the system might have to fight with otherwise, such as dust build-up or loose fan blades. This helps the heater to work more effectively and efficiently as well.
Fewer repair needs over the system’s lifespan: Those “small” problems that we just mentioned aren’t going to stay small if they are left to escalate. Any inefficiency that is still around when you start to use your heater is going to gradually worsen, eventually becoming a full repair need. In contrast, regular heater maintenance will prevent up to 85% of the repair needs that could pop up otherwise.
Increased system safety: Last, but certainly not least, you will enjoy a safer system when your heater is regularly maintained. This is applicable to all kinds of heaters, but it is especially important when you are working with any kind of gas-powered heating system. Expert tune-ups ensure that your system is safe to operate.
But Why Schedule Your Tune-Up Now?
Okay, so it is easy to see how and why getting maintenance for your heater is a great idea. But why schedule it now? It does seem early, but early service has its benefits.
Primarily, getting your heater tune-up now rather than waiting until the weather starts to get truly chilly, will help you avoid having to wait a longer amount of time to get your service taken care of. That way, when the weather starts to get colder, you’ll enjoy a nice, warm house without any worries.
