How You Can Benefit from a Heating Tune-Up This Year
Heating systems work hard throughout the winter season to keep your home comfortable, even when the temperature outside drops. However, your heating system cannot function without help—it needs regular tune-ups to remain clean and in good shape for optimal performance. Working with your Charleston heating and air conditioning service to schedule annual heating tune-ups offers several amazing benefits you can enjoy this winter and for many years to come.
You’ll Avoid Breakdowns and Major Repairs
Breakdowns and the need for subsequent major repairs often don’t occur completely unannounced. In most cases, small heating problems build up into bigger issues that eventually bring your furnace or heat pump to a halt. However, if these issues are caught and addressed early, you’ll not only save on your heating repair bills, you’ll also avoid a major system failure that could leave your home without heat during the coldest days of the year. One of the biggest benefits of a heating tune-up is the opportunity for your heating and air conditioning service to fully assess the condition of your heating system. During this assessment, building or potential problems will be noted and brought to your attention so you can take action before a breakdown ever has the chance to occur.
You’ll Enjoy Lower Heating Bills
The efficiency of your home’s heating system is inherently tied to the cleanliness and condition of each component. When your heating system is dirty or worn, it must work significantly harder to achieve the temperature you want than an appliance that is clean and in good repair. Even if your furnace or heat pump is still able to heat your home, you’ll see your energy costs rise steadily over time as the appliances goes longer without service. Heating tune-ups check and clean the entirety of your heating system to improve indoor air quality and reduce the strain on your heating system for more efficient performance. By ensuring that your heating system is working as efficiently as possible, these simple services will keep your monthly costs lower so you can enjoy the consistent savings you want.
You’ll Put Off Heating System Replacement
One of the most influential factors in the lifetime of a heating system is its maintenance record. When your heating system is poorly maintained, it will suffer greater wear and tear that will not only affect its efficiency and the cost of heating your home, but also shorten its expected lifespan, often by years. Furnaces are typically expected to last 15-20 years, while heat pumps should last approximately 16 years before requiring replacement. However, these estimates include the assumption that these appliances will be serviced regularly by a heating and air conditioning professional. Thus, the best way to get the full expected lifetime from your heating system and put off the need to replace your heating appliances due to excessive wear and tear is to schedule a yearly heating tune-up with your trusted HVAC service.
