Although we're still experiencing some warm weather here in the St. Louis area, the fall season has officially started. That means that heating season is right around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about getting your system ready for it! The best way you can do that is to have Jerry Kelly perform annual maintenance on your heating system. Today we're going to look at why annual heating system maintenance is so important and some of the ways you can benefit from it!
Why is it important for every heating system to have annual maintenance?
No matter the age, condition or style of heating system that you have installed in your home, it's important to schedule annual maintenance every year. If your system is just a few years old, annual maintenance will ensure that you get the most out of your recent investment because it will maximize your system's operating life. If you have an older heating system in your home, annual maintenance will take care of the common problems that come with years of wear and tear and keep your system running as efficiently as possible!
How can you benefit having annual maintenance performed on your heating system?
- Renews your confidence in your heating system. After maintenance is performed on your heating system, you'll have a chance to talk with your technician about any problems that need to be addressed regarding your system's efficiency and performance. This will give you a good idea of the current condition of your system and renew your confidence in it after any necessary repairs or adjustments are made.
- Prevents the need for repairs this winter. Scheduling annual maintenance is the best way to prevent furnace or heat pump breakdowns from occurring when you rely on your system the most. After maintenance, chances are slim that you'll be left without heat in the middle of winter.
- Saves you money in the short- and long-term. The small fee to have annual maintenance performed on your heating system is easily made up for in both short- and long-term savings. In the short term, your system will run more efficiently (which cuts down your energy bills) and you'll avoid costs for unnecessary repairs this winter. In the long-term, annual maintenance extends the life of your system and lengthens the amount of time before you need to purchase a new unit.
- Makes your home safer. One of the most important tasks we perform during annual maintenance is to inspect your heat exchanger for cracks. By doing this, we make your home safer because we can catch potential carbon monoxide leaks before they can harm you and your family.
