Yes, You Can Still Schedule Heating Maintenance in December

cold-sweater-manThe weather has already turned cold in the Willamette Valley and you’ve certainly got your heating system running on most days and into the evenings. If you didn’t arrange for your regular heating maintenance during the fall, you might be thinking, “Well, I guess it’s too late to have maintenance done now. The heater is already at work, so I’ll wait until next fall.”

Please don’t do this! We understand people get busy and sometimes regular appointments may be forgotten. If this happened with your heating maintenance this year, it’s not too late to schedule the work. It’s much better to have it done a little late than not to have it at all.

Reasons Why You Don’t Want to Skip Heating Maintenance

“How bad could it be if the heater misses one maintenance appointment?” You’re probably thinking that now, but there are quite a few negative effects of lack of maintenance for a heater. Let’s look at a few:

  • Safety hazards: Is your heating system gas-powered? Gas furnaces are the most common type of heater in our area, and they can’t afford to go without regular inspections during maintenance. These inspections catch where there may be safety problems that can be fixed with repairs. Don’t put your family’s health at risk this winter because of a hazardous furnace.
  • Higher risk of a breakdown: Maintenance helps prevent 95% of breakdowns that can afflict a heating system over winter. We know you don’t want your heater to suddenly die on you during one of the coldest days of the year (and you know that’s when it will happen!), and the best way to see that it won’t is to have it maintained. The peace of mind you’ll gain for this is worth the cost alone.
  • More repair issues: The heater may not fully break down, but it’s much more likely to encounter some type of malfunction over the winter if it’s not maintained. Routine inspections and tune-ups prevent around 85% of the repair issues a heater may normally need over its lifetime. You’re not only spared the hassle of arranging for repairs, you’ll save money as well.
  • An inefficient heater: The adjustments and tune-ups done during maintenance remove the work stress from a heater that can cause it to work harder to run. Without maintenance, you can expect the heating system to lose efficiency with each year, possibly costing you 25% more to run it.
  • A shorter service life: This is a long-term one, but it’s important. A heater without maintenance is much less likely to reach its manufacturer’s expected service life—and we know you don’t want to have to replace the system early!
  • Voided warranty: For many heating systems, the warranty is voided unless the heater receives annual maintenance from professionals.
