With summer in full swing here in Connecticut, your heating system is probably the last thing on your mind. But summer is actually the perfect time to think ahead about heating so you can be ready once temperatures start to dip.
Like any other mechanical device, your furnace or boiler needs regular service to keep it running its reliable best once the cool weather arrives. That’s true whether your equipment is new or old – but especially true if it has a number of winters behind it!
The problem is that if you wait until the fall to schedule heating maintenance, you’ll run into several potential headaches: first, it will be harder to find a convenient appointment time, since quality heating technicians are in constant demand.
Second, if your system needs to be shut down for a heating repair, it can get pretty uncomfortable for your family, especially if an unexpected cold front arrives–always a possibility in New England. Of course, the worst-case scenario is that you’ll discover the need to repair or even replace your heating system – something you definitely don’t want to do once we settle into crisp autumn weather.
The last headache you’ll avoid is the higher energy bills that come from reduced equipment efficiency. On average, your furnace or boiler will lose about five percent efficiency each year it is not properly maintained. If you’ve skipped a few years, that can have a big impact on your monthly heating costs. So, the sooner you get your equipment maintained, the sooner you’ll benefit from peak-performing equipment.
Many advantages come with maintaining your oil-fired heating system or propane-powered heating system during the summer. You’ll save money on energy bills, enjoy more convenient service times, and get access to better deals on your heating equipment installation if you need to replace your system. Why not get yours out of the way today?
