How Does Regular Heating Maintenance Help You?

Winter is on its way here in Round Rock, TX, and chances are you’ve already used your heating system a number of times this year. If you haven’t scheduled one already now is an excellent time to set up maintenance for your system from a trained technician. Maintenance isn’t quite the same thing as a repair call. Repairs are designed to address a single specific problem such as a faulty fan motor or a damaged burner. Maintenance, on the other hand, is designed to treat a lot of little problems that wouldn’t merit a service call on their own: clogs in the burners, loose bolts, dirty filters, and the like. It’s also designed to look for any larger issues that may be coming down the road: letting you schedule repairs before they force your system to shut down.

You may not see the advantages in regular maintenance, but it can make a huge difference in the functioning of your HVAC system, especially if you apply them once or twice a year over the system’s lifetime. Those benefits can include the following:

  1. Improved performance. Loose bolts, clogged filters and the like can reduce your system’s efficiency, bumping up your monthly bills and adding to the stress and strain on other components. Maintenance will improve your system’s efficiency and if applied over time, can even extend the lifetime of your heater.
  2. Early jumps on repairs. The longer a large problem lingers, the more the damage will spread and the greater the cost of repairs. Regular maintenance lets you catch the issue early, allowing you to schedule repairs at your leisure and ensuring that they don’t cost any more than is absolutely necessary. That comes on top of preventing an unexpected breakdown, keeping you from scrambling to fix a problem you didn’t see coming.
