It’s Time to Start Thinking about Heater Maintenance

Fall is here! Okay, maybe not quite yet. The official start of fall is in just a few days, but it will still be some time before we start feeling the effects of cooling weather. However, it’s not too early to start at least thinking about your heating system and whether it’s ready for this coming winter.

Regular preventive maintenance helps you make sure that your heating system runs as efficiently as it should. It also lessens your susceptibility to larger emergency repairs later on. Read on to learn more about the various benefits of routine heater maintenance.


Perhaps the most important part of your heating system maintenance, the inspection is when our professionals will take a close look at your heating system. We’ll make sure that everything is working as it should, and we’ll also check to see if any repairs are needed. Handling these repairs as soon as they crop up will help extend the life of your system and save you money.


No matter what type of heating system you have, every component plays a vital role. If even one part is covered in grime and dirt, it won’t be able to perform as it should. For instance, if your evaporator coil is obstructed with debris, then it can’t absorb heat effectively. Or, if you have a furnace with a dirty burner, it may not be able to generate heat. The thorough cleaning conducted during maintenance ensures that your heating system will work at its best.


Over time, the numerous components of your heater may become loose or damaged due to normal wear and tear. You might have a bent flame sensor, or maybe even a loose panel. While these factors may not render your heating system ineffective right away, over time it can cause a domino effect within your heater and lead to premature system breakdown.
