Living in Florida, our heating systems don’t get much use—that is until the first cold front of the season hits, and we scramble to switch our HVAC systems into “heat” mode. But after sitting dormant for nearly a year, we can’t just expect our heating systems to work efficiently. That’s why scheduling routine maintenance for your heating system is so important. Unfortunately, the only time many homeowners make a call to their HVAC technician is when their heating system has already broken down. With the winter months approaching, now is the best time to schedule a maintenance appointment.
Still not convinced your heating system could use some TLC? Here are three reasons to schedule a maintenance appointment today.
1. Reduce Repair Issues
During a maintenance appointment, your heating system will undergo a thorough inspection and tuneup. This ensures that every component, big or small, within your heating system is working as it should and if there are any issues, these can be addressed before they turn into bigger, costlier problems. As a result, your heating system is less likely to falter when you need it most.
2. Increase The Lifespan of Your Heating System
The average heating system can last 10 to 15 years, but only if it’s properly maintained. When you skimp on maintenance appointments, your heating system will be susceptible to unnecessary wear and tear, which can significantly decrease its lifespan. Considering your HVAC system isn’t exactly cheap, you obviously want to get the most out of it. Scheduling a maintenance appointment will not only ensure your heating system works throughout the fall and winter months, but it’ll help prolong your system’s lifespan.
3. Improve Efficiency
When your heater is showing signs of wear and tear, and when the components are dirty, it won’t operate as efficiently as it otherwise would. As a result, your heating system may need to work in overdrive to heat your home. Not only does this put excess strain on your heating system, but it can inflate your energy bills. Scheduling maintenance appointments on a regular basis is a great way to optimize the energy efficiency of your system so that it functions well and saves you money, too!
