4 Reasons to Get Heating Maintenance Now
We just got over the worst part of the summer here in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. Now onto the cold. Below, we will discuss 4 reasons to get heating maintenance now that will save you time and money.
1. Why Get Heating Maintenance Now?
Now is the perfect time to get heating maintenance. Once the cold weather comes, you will switch the heater on and hope for the best. With proper maintenance, you will be confident your heating system will power on as you like, for as long as you like. Without maintenance, your heater could start incorrectly or not at all.
2. You Save Money
Your heater has been sitting idle for most of the year. That can be a bad thing in some cases. Parts may lack lubrication, proper power, they could have failed, and many other issues can arise. The good news is that maintenance can catch these problems before you turn on your heater. Even if the issue isn't imminent, it could become a problem in the middle of the cold season. Not only will you be left in the cold, it could be difficult to get a qualified tech to your property to fix the issue quickly. Best of all, your maintenance tech can catch a small issue before it becomes a large one.
3. Improve Heater Efficiency
Your heating system needs to operate at peak efficiency, no matter if you use a heat pump, furnace, boiler, or other method. Just one old filter can cause it to work overtime and stress out the unit. Many other tasks should also be performed from unit inspection to wiring and power checks to a proper thermostat check to ensure your heater runs as effectively as possible.
4. To Keep Your Warranty Valid
Many heating units come with warranties that can last for years. However, many of those warranties require that you have a professional, certified technician perform proper maintenance within scheduled times. For example, we at Vital Air are professionals at selecting, installing, and maintaining Lennox heating and cooling systems. They offer standard warranties which cover:
- The unit during warranty period.
- Availability of components.
- Repairs to unit.
- What is covered, excluded, and how disputes are handled.
- Up to 20 years or even a limited lifetime warranty on heat exchangers on certain models.
- All of this is subject to how you provide "care of equipment."
