6 Reasons to Schedule A Tune-Up Now…Not Later.

heating tune up new yorkCustomers often ask if they really need to get their heating system tuned up every year. The answer is yes! As we all know, Hudson Valley winters can be cold and raw. And while some years, mild autumn temperatures linger into late October, we can get a hard freeze early too. It pays to be sure your heating system is ready to go.

Regular, routine maintenance keeps your system running at peak efficiency from the moment the technician gets in to look at it. That means you’ll burn fuel more efficiently, which keeps your monthly heating costs down. In dollars, that can add up to 10% savings on heating costs. Those kinds of savings count for a lot as we head into another season of price uncertainty.

How Routine Maintenance Helps Your Home—and Wallet!

Still not sure if you need a tune-up? Here are 5 more reasons not to skip seasonal maintenance for your heating system:

  1. Protection. If your equipment is older, regular maintenance will extend its lifespan. If you have a new system, it will protect your investment and keep it running like new for longer.
  2. Prevention. A comprehensive tune-up performed by a trained technician will prevent or correct minor issues, helping you avoid the expense and inconvenience of a major malfunction down the line.
  3. Coverage. Most heating—and cooling—equipment warranties require routine professional service as a precondition. Skip your tune-up and your manufacturer’s warranty could be voided, leaving you to pay out of pocket for expenses that would have otherwise been covered.
  4. Safety. Tune-ups include an inspection of the heat exchanger. For instance, a cracked heat exchanger can leak carbon monoxide into your home.
  5. Health. Regular service to your HVAC system will keep the indoor air in your home circulating and clean. Better air-quality in your home will help keep your family more comfortable, especially if anyone suffers from allergies.

water heater upgrade hudson valleyWhile we’re all staying at home here in the Hudson Valley during the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve had to make some adjustments in our day-to-day life.

Schedule changes with working from home, kids’ schooling, and other concerns have affected how and when we do everything from taking showers to doing laundry to washing dishes.

If your water heater is struggling to meet your new demands, it’s time to think about upgrading.

Contact our team of water heater experts

If you go to a big box home improvement store, someone who normally works in the paint department may be selling water heaters the day you show up. How knowledgeable do you think he or she will be when it comes to helping you choose the right water heater for your home?

The equipment professionals at Depew Energy, on the other hand, are well trained and have years of experience installing, maintaining and repairing water heaters. We’ll talk everything over with you: the size of your home, how many people live there, your water heating needs, and more. From there, we can help you choose the right one for your home, and can give you options that best fit you budget.

Spring is a great time to install your new water heater between winter’s heating system work, and the rush for summer air conditioning service. You’ll have your hot water heater installed faster and at a time more convenient with your schedule.

Upgrading to a tankless water heater

With being at home far more than normal, one of the biggest hassles can be everyone wanting to shower close to the same time. You either have to get up before everyone else and lose sleep, or wait for the water heater to heat the new water in the tank before you have your turn in the shower. Then you also have to work with other chores that use hot water, like laundry and dishwashing.

A tankless water heater takes away all of those hassles by providing endless hot water, whenever you need it; there’s no waiting for a tank to refill and heat the water. Want to take a shower while the dishwasher’s on? Go ahead!

On top of that, you’ll enjoy incredible energy savings, too. You can reduce your water heating energy costs by up to 34% with a tankless water heater as opposed to a traditional tank model.

A reminder: With the COVID-19 situation, we have had to make some changes in how we do service. Check our COVID-19 page for more information, and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.
