Here in the Midwest, we like to cherish every last minute of the warm months of the year. And although it will be warm for the foreseeable future, fall is only a month and a half away. For us at Jerry Kelly, that means that we’re starting to look ahead to the heating season. That’s why we will begin booking appointments for furnace tune-ups this weekend. Today we’re going to talk about the importance of heating system tune-ups and how you can benefit from getting yours done early!
Why are heating system tune-ups important?
Heating systems work extremely hard during the winter months, and they are bound to develop problems if they don’t undergo periodic professional maintenance. During tune-ups, our technicians inspect all of the vital components of your system and fix any problems that they find. In addition, a tune-up is when your system is cleaned, lubricated and properly adjusted in order to prevent problems from developing during the upcoming heating season.
Beyond fixing and preventing operational problems, heating system tune-ups are important because they lower your monthly heating bills, prevent serious safety hazards with your furnace, keep warranties intact and prolong the life of your system.
How can you benefit from scheduling your heating system tune-up early?
- Cross it off your to-do list. The summer months tend to be a little less busy for homeowners than other times of the year, which makes this a good time to cross some things off of your to-do list. By scheduling your tune-up now, you won’t run the risk of forgetting to do it later and you’ll have less trouble fitting it into your calendar.
- Ease safety concerns. Furnaces run on natural gas, which means they have some more serious safety concerns than air conditioners do. Tune-ups are the best way to take care of any problems with your heating system that might pose a safety threat to your home. By scheduling your tune-up before the heating season begins, you can ensure your home is safe from the moment you turn your furnace on the first time this year.
- Maximize energy savings. A tune-up will bring your heating system up to its peak efficiency levels. The earlier you get your tune-up, the longer you can enjoy lower heating bills.
- Schedule your appointment at a convenient time. The longer you wait to schedule your tune-up, the more our schedules will begin to book up. This is the perfect time to schedule a tune-up because you’ll beat the rush and it will be much easier to schedule a time that’s convenient for you.
