So much in our lives was put on hold in 2020 thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us missed out on graduations, weddings, vacations, birthday parties, holiday get-togethers, and time with our family and friends. In addition to that, we also put off many normal, routine tasks like getting our home’s furnace or boiler its annual tune-up before winter.
Did you forget to do that? Don’t feel bad. You’re not alone. Many folks here in the Hudson Valley didn’t either. But now’s the time to rectify that by contacting Depew Energy to schedule your tune-up!
Because so many people delayed getting a tune-up, our service technicians are high in demand right now. There may be a delay in when we can get to your home, as we are not only working in tune-up’s, but also handling no-heat emergencies as well—the highest priority in the midst of a chilly winter season. But rest assured that we’ll do our best to perform your tune-up as soon as possible. If you’re on our list—we WILL get to you!
We also want all our customers to have the utmost peace of mind when it comes to safety. All of our service work is done in accordance with the guidelines given by the CDC, plus state and federal authorities. Our COVID-safe, contactless service includes our mandatory requirement for all drivers and technicians to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) whenever entering a customer’s home.
You may be thinking, “It’s already February. Spring isn’t that far off. I’ll wait until then.”
Bad idea. Your furnace or boiler will be working hard for at least another three months and without maintenance, it will experience far more wear and tear than usual—especially as cold as it has been in the Hudson Valley so far this year. Getting your tune-up scheduled now protects your heating system, and your wallet. Here are four reasons why a tune-up now makes perfect sense:
Prevent untimely, inconvenient system breakdowns. Four out of five equipment breakdowns could have been prevented with regular, professional maintenance. That’s because in addition to performing a tune-up, our service technicians do a careful inspection of your furnace or boiler. They can detect and fix problems before they become worse and help you stem off problems that could lead to a potentially costly breakdown.
Lower your heating costs. You start getting paid back for getting a tune-up almost immediately. After our inspection, your furnace or boiler will be running back at peak efficiency, using the least amount of energy possible for heating. That can substantially lower your monthly energy bills.
Protects your heating system. When your heating system gets regular, professional maintenance, it runs better and with fewer breakdowns. That can lead to a much longer life expectancy for your furnace or boiler and prevent the necessity of a costly investment at an inopportune time.
Protects the warranty. Many warranties for furnaces and boilers mandate annual maintenance by a professional service technician. Blowing off the tune-up now could void your warranty, leaving you responsible for future repair costs.
