The holidays are here, and the weather has grown chilly in Mesa, AZ, which means most people will be running their heaters on a regular basis. The increased frequency of heater use may lead some residents to wonder if they might need heating maintenance, and to suspect that it may be too late in the season to schedule it. Instead, they’ll soldier on with their heater as is, and wait for the spring to think about maintenance. This can be a big mistake. It’s never too late to get heating maintenance this winter—especially if you haven’t serviced your system in a while—and the benefits can affect your household immediately. Now is the time to schedule maintenance if you haven’t done so already.
How Heating Maintenance Works
People tend to eschew heating maintenance because it doesn’t address specific problems with the heater. This is missing the point a little bit. Maintenance is designed to correct all of the thousands of tiny problems that can lead up to bigger ones: anticipating repairs before they happen and performing the little chores that can head them off at the pass. That can include things like cleaning dirty components, unclogging burners, lubricating moving parts, and tightening loose bolts and fittings. If more repairs are required, the technician can spot the issue and set up the necessary repairs whenever it is most convenient for you.
Beyond preventing potential repairs that could shut your system down this winter, a maintenance session improves your heater’s efficiency, allowing it to do more while expending less energy. That can translate to lower monthly bills, and as you use your heater more and more often this winter, the sooner you can take advantage of that, the better.
