Regular heating maintenance is incredibly important for extending the life of your heating unit. There are some times, however, when maintenance is even more beneficial than normal. Let’s take a look at some of the times when you receive the best benefits from heating maintenance.
Preventative Fall Maintenance
The best time to conduct maintenance on any system is right before it is going to be used heavily or over a prolonged period of time. In the case of heating, this means having it serviced during the fall. Most people run their heating system every single day during the winter months, which definitely qualifies as heavy usage. If you time your maintenance to occur just before winter, you can be confident that your heating system is in top condition when you need it most.
You may be tempted to wait until the start of winter itself to get your maintenance done. The reason we do not recommend that is because winter is when heating systems will start breaking down. All the preventable issues that could have been fixed in the fall will cause breakdowns. This will cause a spike in HVAC repair calls. It will generally be far less convenient to secure a service call during the winter. If your heating system breaks down, you could wait several days for a technician while having no heat in your home.
If your heating unit starts making strange noises on startup, turns on and off too frequently, or you notice cold spots in your home, call a professional right away! Small quirks may seem innocuous, but if ignored they could develop into some big problems. You don’t want to leave an obvious malfunction alone until your yearly scheduled maintenance. Fix it right away so you don’t have to deal with your heating unit breaking down.
