What Happens if I Skip My Annual Heating System Maintenance?

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.
