Spring has really sprung here in the Hudson Valley. We’re eager to exchange our sweaters for shorts and boots for sandals. But there is still one winter task remaining: getting your home’s furnace or boiler its annual maintenance tune-up by Depew Energy!
That may have you scratching your head, wondering, “Why would I need to get the tune-up now when I don’t have to turn on the heat again until fall?” There are some sound reasons behind this suggestion.
Convenience is one big reason. This is what is sometimes called a “shoulder season” in the HVAC business. Our service department isn’t fielding the volume of calls for furnace or boiler repairs since the heating season is almost effectively over, and air conditioning season hasn’t started yet. With a more flexible schedule, we can set your maintenance tune-up for a date and time that is convenient for you. And if our experienced service technicians find a problem, it can be fixed quickly.
Peace of mind is another reason. Cold snaps can catch you by surprise in early fall. By having your furnace or boiler get its maintenance tune-up now, it will be ready to go whenever you need it most—and it will be running at its peak efficiency, keeping your energy costs down too!
If you use heating oil, this is also a great time to fill your heating oil tank. Empty space in your heating tank creates condensation, which causes corrosion. Corrosion can lead to sludge build-up in your tank or tank failure.
Did you know that service plans can cut your heating costs by up to 10%? That’s because a well-maintained furnace or boiler operates more efficiently than one that hasn’t been serviced in a year or more.
Every one of Depew Energy’s service plans includes an annual maintenance tune-up. Regular maintenance is also an investment in your heating system, as that helps extend the life expectancy of your furnace or boiler.
You get other benefits with our service plans, including 24/7 priority emergency service. If you lose heat, we’re promptly there for you.
Also, you get parts protection for almost all parts of your home’s heating system. That can save you some big bucks in the event of a repair!
