Winters in Green Bay, WI can be brutal, with temperatures dipping into the teens and lower. A reliable heating system is an absolute must if you don’t want to be left in the cold at the worst possible time. This is why heating maintenance before winter is so important in our region. Here are the top five reasons you need maintenance before the cold temps set in and you start using your heating system.
1. Catches Issues
When one of our technicians performs maintenance on your heating system, they do a full inspection of all the working parts. They are able to tell if a part should be replaced before the start of winter to avoid an unexpected breakdown. By catching these issues, you can avoid nasty surprises in the middle of a cold Wisconsin night and avoid having to pay for emergency repair services.
2. Improved Efficiency
During maintenance, we clean and fine-tune your system so that it works at peak efficiency. By making sure all parts are clean, your system can work with less effort. Making adjustments, lubricating moving parts, and tightening loose connections also allows your system to work with less stress, which decreases the amount of energy it needs to do its job. This translates into lower energy bills for you.
3. Improves Your Home’s Safety
Making sure your heater is working properly, especially if it is gas, helps significantly reduce the chances of a fire. You can have peace of mind when we maintain your system, knowing that we checked and cleaned every part. Part of maintenance also includes testing safety systems to ensure they are also in proper working order.
4. Keeps Your Warranty Valid
If your system is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, it is required that you have your heating system maintained by a qualified professional. Trying to DIY your own maintenance or repairs will result in the warranty being voided, and if you had to call in one of our techs, you would have to pay for it out of pocket. Trying to DIY your system can also cause more problems down the line that you might not realize, such as decreased efficiency and unexpected breakdowns. Leave maintenance and repair to our pros and keep a record for your warranty.
5. Schedule Flexibility and Cheaper Prices
HVAC companies are typically not too busy during the fall. This allows for more flexibility and lower prices for service calls. When winter hits, you may have to wait weeks and may even pay more for service because the technicians are so busy with repair calls. It’s best to stay ahead of the game and play it safe by scheduling heater maintenance early before everyone turns on their heating systems.
