During the fall is when professional HVAC companies urge customers to arrange for regular maintenance for their heating system. This is vital for making sure that a heater will run with as little chance of repair issues or failures as possible. It’s simply a good “insurance policy” against getting trapped in a chilly and uncomfortable house during one of the coldest days of the year. It also keeps heaters running at their most energy efficient.
There are many benefits to routine fall maintenance for heaters, however. We’d like to look at a few that may not have occurred to you before.
Discounts and Other Membership Benefits
The better HVAC contractors will provide you with membership benefits for signing up for their maintenance program that extend beyond routine inspections and tune-ups. For example, our Comfort Club offers 15% discounts on repairs, no overtime charges, a monthly payment plan, and priority service so you can jump to the head of the service queue. Our maintenance program also includes inspections and tune-ups for your air conditioning system each the fall.
If you have a gas furnace working in your home—and many homes do—maintenance will see that the system operates as safely as possible. Technicians will check if there is any danger of cracks on the heat exchangers and examine the gas line for leaks.
A noisy heat pump or furnace can be a major distraction, and as these systems get older they are likely to become even noisier. A simple loose part in the air handler can turn into a terrific racket. Maintenance will take care of the stress on the system that can lead to a heater turning into a source of winter noise pollution.
