It’s Fall – Don’t Stall on your Heater Tune-up
Fall is here, and before we know it, so will the cold winds and winter precipitation. The last thing anyone wants to wake up to on a freezing cold winter morning is a broken down heating system. By acting now and scheduling a tune-up for your heating system, you can enjoy uninterrupted comfort no matter what the outdoor weather conditions are like this winter.
The Benefits of Heater Maintenance
Your to-do list for fall could be a mile long, but maintaining your home’s heating system deserves top place on the list. A well-maintained heating system will consistently and efficiently deliver warm air throughout your home all winter long. Additional benefits of a fall tune-up for your heating system include:
- Cleaner and healthier indoor air once the air filter is replaced.
- Improved heating system efficiency. Your monthly heating bills could decrease by 30 percent or more after a tune-up.
- Even distribution of heat throughout your home. You might not experience as many temperature variations and drafty areas once the heating system is serviced.
