Why You Need Winter Prep

Here’s why you need service for your heater this winter:

Improve Your Energy Efficiency

When you routinely service your heater each day, it helps keep your heater in the best shape possible. If you neglect your heater throughout the year, it becomes inefficient over time. When your heater becomes inefficient it forces your system to work much harder to provide the heating power that you’re used to. Service from a qualified HVAC professional always ensures that your system is running in the best shape possible.

Lower Your Energy Bills

As we stated above, heater inefficiency from system neglect causes your heater to work harder for the same results. The biggest downside of this is your heating bill rising. You might not notice your system struggling to heat your home initially, but you’ll definitely notice it when your heating bills steadily creep up over time. You can help reduce strain on your system and you can save money by scheduling routine maintenance services with our team.

Avoid Expensive Repair Costs

Want to avoid an expensive system breakdown? Make sure you’re giving your heater the attention it needs. When you neglect your heater, it means that you don’t have a professional looking at your system often enough. Even if you think you’re looking at your system and conducting annual checkups on your own, no DIY article or video can give you the expertise and training of a professional.

Having to repairs done is often extremely costly and inconvenient. You can avoid this situation entirely by scheduling regular maintenance services.

Winter Tips

The best thing you can do for your heater is to schedule annual maintenance. These are some great tips to supplement this.

  • Replace Your Air Filter: Want to alleviate any strain on your heater? Make sure to replace your air filter regularly. Running your heater with a dirty air filter greatly reduces your efficiency.
  • Lower Your Thermostat: You can help your heater and save money all at the same time by lowering your thermostat setting by just a few degrees in winter. The average household can save about 2% a month on their winter utility bill by doing this.
  • Clean Your Ducts: Have your air ducts cleaned for an extra boost in home efficiency. Your vents accumulate dust and grime over time, so make sure these pathways are free so that your home is heated as efficiently as possible.
