Heating maintenance is one of the most important services you can schedule to prepare for winter, and yet so few homeowners do so. Why is this? Many people feel they don’t need heating maintenance, as their system has worked just fine up until this point. But a heating system failure can occur at any time, and maintenance is vital to preventing unexpected repairs. You may have a looming repair need that is fairly undetectable at this point, even if it doesn’t seem like a problem to the untrained eye.
Another reason people avoid heating maintenance is because they feel as though it is an unnecessary expense. However, for a low one-time price, heating maintenance can save you a lot of trouble and money later on in repairs, heating costs, or premature replacement. At JW Heating & Air, we want to help you save money over time by explaining just a few of the benefits of a maintenance appointment. For heating maintenance in Los Angeles, call us today.
- Prevent Repairs: During heating maintenance, your entire heating system is thoroughly examined, cleaned, and adjusted. This helps to prevent repairs, which may be caused by a variety of factors. Even a dirty filter can severely inhibit air flow to a furnace or heat pump. And any loose screws or faulty electrical components can lead to major repairs later on.
- Extend the Life of Your Equipment: The adjustment, cleaning, and inspection also helps to keep your unit running for longer. If your unit is not in good condition, parts can begin to wear down far sooner than they’re supposed to. Make sure you don’t spend money too early on for equipment replacement by scheduling maintenance annually.
- Increase Efficiency: If you neglect maintenance, you may spend far more on heating costs than is necessary. Dirty components and anything that is misaligned, bent, or loose can cause energy costs to soar. Regular cleaning keeps your unit running as efficiently as it should, and with a full inspection you can be sure there is not a broken part forcing your unit to work harder and consumer more energy.
