Many of us know there’s a problem with our heater when we turn it on and no heat comes out. It’s usually harder to tell when you need maintenance to prevent that from happening in the first place.
We’re going to walk you through the benefits of tune-up calls, and why anyone with heating in Elberton, GA should make them a regular part of your home care.
Maintenance Leads to Lower Annual Heating Bills
Factor in the cost of a tune-up call against the additional amount of money you will inevitably spend on your heating bill. Heating and cooling are some of the biggest energy-related costs that homeowners face. With an improperly maintained heating system, those bills only climb higher.
When your heater hasn’t been maintained in a while, it’s less efficient. When it’s less efficient, it needs to stay on for longer to achieve the same results that it used to. That extra runtime equates to a sudden spike in energy bills that will only get bigger in a short amount of time.
Maintenance visits ensure that all the parts inside your heater are as optimal as they’re supposed to be, moving parts are sufficiently lubricated, and other potential inefficiencies are addressed.
Maintenance Means Fewer Breakdowns
With many problems, your heater isn’t capable of alerting you to the existence of a repair need or inefficiency. It will continue to attempt to do its job over and over again. This could result in components grinding against each other, loose parts knocking around, and further damage to your heater.
Maintenance visits help to identify which parts need repairs or need to be replaced first. This gives you the opportunity to switch out worn-down parts with new components, ensuring that your heater doesn’t break down on you when you least expect it. Nobody needs a surprise like that.
Small Part Replacements Are Better Than Complete Breakdowns
A maintenance call includes an inspection of your entire system. That means your technician may find a few troubling things about your heater. While this can be frustrating, it’s a lot better than finding out that a full breakdown of your system was caused by multiple parts going bad at once, and that they caused intense damage to the rest of your heater.
A complete breakdown of your heater can cost up to 50% of the expense of just installing a new heater, depending on the age of your current unit. Avoid replacements, prevent big bills, and keep your heater working for as long as possible with a tune-up call.
