Fall is here, and in other parts of the country that means it’s time to rev up the home heating system for the rest of the year. Here in Florida, though, we have a couple more months of warm weather to prepare for winter. Does that mean that we can collectively sit back and not worry about heating maintenance? Not really. Read on to find out more about why now is the perfect time to schedule heating maintenance.
The Importance of Maintenance
Waiting around for your system to start acting strange before calling for repairs may seem like a fine thing to do, but it’s actually contributing to increased wear and tear on your system. You’re still giving a problem time to develop and damage your system before you react to it. Some heating problems don’t even show outward symptoms until they are very far advanced. Preventive heating maintenance, on the other hand, is more proactive.
You should schedule heating maintenance every year for the same reason that you have yearly health screenings. It allows us to find and fix any potential problems before they develop and pose a threat to your system. Annual maintenance can substantially increase the lifespan of your heater, compared to purely reactive repairs.
Why Fall Maintenance?
Ideally, you should conduct annual maintenance the season before you plan on using a system more frequently. Since the most stressful time of year for heating systems is during the winter, the best time to conduct heating maintenance would be during the fall season. This ensures that your heating system will be in the best possible shape to handle the stress of keeping your home warm all winter.
