What’s that you say? You don’t want to worry about winter yet? Well, enjoy the lovely weather we’ll be having until then, but keep in mind: it can be pretty awful when winter weather hits before you’re properly prepared for it! That is just one of the many reasons to schedule an appointment now for heater maintenance in Virginia, MN.
Time to Plan Repairs
If you wait for maintenance until you need to use your heater, you may end up not being warm enough! It’s better to find out how your heater is doing as soon as possible. That will give you time to schedule any repairs before you’re relying on that heater to keep out the winter chill.
Avoid Safety Concerns
Most issues with a heater that could cause a safety risk are much more likely to occur with a heater that’s over 10 years old. (This could be, for example, a cracked heat exchanger leaking carbon monoxide into your house.) Making sure to have it maintained before you turn it on for the season will ensure that there’s no cause for concern when you do operate it.
Keep It Working Reliably
The last thing you want in a Minnesota winter is to wake up to realize your heater failed sometime during the night and your house is now a walk-in freezer. Having it maintained before the start of the season will dramatically reduce the risk of that situation happening to you.
Keep It Under Warranty
Maybe your heater isn’t under warranty any more, but if it is, many warranty plans require that you have your heater professionally maintained every year. What’s more, you need to have this service done by a trained professional in order to keep the warranty valid.
A heater that is maintained every year before operation begins is a happy heater. You’ll have fewer repairs, and if repairs are needed for a problem you caught promptly, they will probably be less extensive than if you allowed the heater to keep running without repair.
Reduce Energy Bills
When a heater is not regularly maintained, it can encounter small issues that add up to significant waste in energy usage. You don’t want to pay for fuel that isn’t keeping your house warm! Keeping your heater in tip-top shape means that it will run as efficiently as possible. Your bank account will thank you, and so will the planet.
Extend the Life of Your Heater
A heater left to its own devices, not maintained or repaired, can deteriorate quickly. Having to purchase a new heater and schedule installation is no fun, especially if it happens during a Minnesota January! A heater that is inspected and maintained every year can last fifteen years or more.
We’re happy to schedule your fall inspection, and our team of skilled technicians can help you to get your heater in the best possible condition. Then you can relax and enjoy the season without worrying that the cold weather might strike before you’re prepared.
