There are ideal times to do a lot of things concerning your home, but having an ideal time doesn’t mean it’s the only time. For example, take the maintenance of your heating system. The ideal time of year to schedule a heating maintenance appointment in Everett is in the fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t schedule maintenance at any other time of year. The most important thing is to have your system properly maintained, and that should happen annually, no matter the time of year. So, if you weren’t able to schedule maintenance for your heating system this past fall, it’s not too late to schedule it now. Just call G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc., and schedule a maintenance appointment with one of our experts.
Can’t I Wait?
Technically speaking, yes, you can, but the truth is, you shouldn’t. Why? Because you’ve already gone ½ the winter running your heating system with last year’s dirt, dust and wear, and are now adding this year’s wear and tear to its operation. Dirt, dust and wear can seriously affect the performance of your system, which can affect your comfort levels. But all that can be managed with a single maintenance appointment.
What Makes maintenance So Important?
Maintenance isn’t a quick review of your system with a flashlight; rather, it is a full tune-up of your system, complete with inspection, cleaning, lubrication and testing. The entire process takes about 2-3 hours but the benefits will last an entire season. What kinds of benefits are there from a maintenance appointment? Here are some examples:
- Better energy efficiency – your heating system was made to operate at a certain level of energy efficiency, but can only do so when in good working order. By removing last year’s dirt and dust and remedying any wear and tear, your system will operate as it should.
- Prevent repairs – during a maintenance appointment, small problems are attended to, such as frayed wiring or worn belts. Getting ahead of these small problems helps prevent big problems from developing.
- Better comfort – a system that is struggling due to dirt, dust and wear will have a hard time reaching the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat.
