Annual HVAC Maintenance & Why It Matters

Spring has sprung in New Hampshire, which means the heating season is over and warmer weather is on the way. Now that you’re no longer relying on your heating system daily, it’s time to evaluate its condition after several months of consistent operation.

Take advantage of this stretch of mild temperatures to take a look at all of your home energy appliances while they’re not in use, especially your oil heating equipment.

Whether your heating system is brand new or 10 years old, annual maintenance is a must for keeping it running at its best. Having a licensed technician perform this service just once a year can prevent unexpected repairs, complete system malfunctions, and unplanned winter spending.

What else can your annual tune-up improve?

  • Your Comfort: Sit back and relax when the temperatures begin to drop this fall. When you have your annual tune-up performed in advance, you can trust your heating equipment to operate efficiently and effectively, delivering worry-free warmth throughout the colder months.
  • Your Safety: Oil heat is an incredibly safe (and non-explosive) fuel for your home, but just like any home appliance, your heating system has to be maintained for sound operation. An equipment malfunction can lead to loss of heat when you least expect it—perhaps in freezing temperatures—can be dangerous for your family and property.
  • Your Savings: Did you know that an annual tune-up alone can reduce your heating oil costs by 10%? When the equipment is running smoothly, your system doesn’t have to work as hard to deliver heat, thus using less energy.
  • Your Investment: Your heating system is likely the most expensive appliance in your home. Much like buying a new car, it’s important to take care of your investment after it is purchased. Annual maintenance helps to extend its lifespan and adds value to your property.

Why wait until fall? Contact your local energy provider to schedule your tune-up now and be prepared for whatever next heating season may bring.
