Indoor Air Quality
Heater maintenance is an opportunity for us to tune up your heater, but it’s also an opportunity for us to clean it. It is completely normal for some dust and dirt to get in your heater as part of operating. Even with a strong air filter, dust and dirt are inevitable to some degree.
When we can wipe down surfaces all along, it helps to improve your indoor air quality instead of dust building up until it is a major problem. After all, the dust buildup inside your heater will eventually mix back in with clean air and blow back out into your home, creating a cycle of worsening indoor air quality.
Heating maintenance is also an investment in your comfort. When your heater works efficiently, you’re not just saving on energy costs. An efficient heater also heats your home very well. If your heater is not efficient, it may struggle to meet your temperature expectations and your home won’t ever feel as warm as you would like. Taking care of your heater means that the system will be about to produce heat better and faster during each heating cycle.
Aside from saving money on energy costs as we already mentioned above, you’re also saving over the life of the heater when it comes to repair costs. A well-maintained heater is going to have fewer issues year after year. When you invest in a tune-up you can almost completely avoid unexpected repairs.
Plus, your heater will last longer, which is an additional way to save. The longer your heater lasts, the more you’re getting out of that initial investment you made during installation. A well-maintained heater can last for as long as 30 years, if not longer. That’s thousands of dollars for a new heater that you can put off spending for many longer.
Tune-ups are also very important from a safety aspect. Whether your heater uses electricity or gas to generate heat, there are some risks associated with operating a heater. The system can overheat, you can face electrical problems, or you can have a gas leak.
A tune-up is a great way to make sure that any safety concerns are addressed before they become a major problem for your home and family. Heater breakdowns are already inconvenient, but you don’t want to put your family’s safety at risk either.
