POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though September days are still warm, winter is quickly approaching and that means the cold weather will be here before you know it. T. Webber Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, an industry leader of more than 20 years, shares some reasons why getting a heating tune-up this fall is important in prolonging a heating unit's life.
"We see a lot of heating units that are beyond repair because of a lack of regular maintenance," said Tommy Webber, owner of T. Webber Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. "A home's heating unit is a valuable asset, and we advise all of our customers to schedule an annual maintenance appointment now in order to prevent an emergency during a cold snap. Preventive maintenance is much more affordable than replacement costs."
T. Webber offers the following reasons why you need to think about a tune-up now rather than wait until your heating system fails:
- Increase system efficiency - Depending on the age and overall condition of the heating system, tune-ups allow units to run at or near their original efficiency. When the equipment runs in top condition, homeowners can expect energy bills to remain reasonable, without huge spikes in costs.
- Reveal potential problems - Annual or biannual tune-ups allow trained technicians to recognize small or potential problems enabling them to make the proper repairs before the problem gets out of control. When left untreated, these problems can potentially lead to costly repairs and eventually replacement of the unit.
- Ensure home safety – Keeping a heating system in good running order makes for a safer home. Inspections and tune-ups can identify potential or existing carbon monoxide or natural gas leaks. A safe heating system provides peace of mind for the homeowner.
- Prolong equipment life - Properly maintained heating units don't have to work as hard to heat homes. The less wear and tear on a unit, the longer the equipment lifespan will be. Just like a car, if you don't maintain it, it won't run efficiently and its life expectancy is reduced.
"Furnaces and boilers that are in good shape are essential for keeping warm in the winter," Webber said. "During inspections, we look for signs that the unit may be faltering such as uneven heat distribution, failure to heat quickly, strange odors from vents, unusual noises, leaks and excessive condensation. Homeowners can also be on the lookout for a sudden spike in the electric bill. All of these could be signs of a failing system. Prepare now, and you could save your system and money."
