This week we’re emphasizing the importance of having fall HVAC maintenance done to take care of your heating system. This is often called preventive maintenance because it prevents malfunctions and even complete breakdowns. Simply put, it’s one of the best kinds of “insurance” you can have that your family will stay warm inside your house all the way through to spring.
There are other benefits as well, such as a longer service life for the heating system and better energy efficiency that will help you reduce your utility bills.
Q: How much will I save with regular maintenance?
A: There’s no concrete answer that matches every home, since homes have different heating requirements and different types of heaters. However, studies from the U.S. Department of Energy have discovered that a heater that is maintained annually will cost on average $33 less to run per month than a heater that isn’t maintained.
Q: Do all types of heaters need maintenance?
A: Yes, they do. You may think that perhaps a heat pump doesn’t require the same level of service as a natural gas furnace, but both of them suffer immense wear during a Minnesota winter. They will need different types of maintenance, but they both need it just the same. This applies to boilers and in-floor radiant systems as well.
Q: What other benefits come from joining a maintenance program?
A: Although the advantages of routine maintenance on their own make a maintenance program well worth it, our own Freedom Club offers some special benefits in addition to the annual maintenance visits. You’ll receive priority status for scheduling repair service, discounts on our service fees, a parts and labor discount on repairs, and no overtime labor charges. We offer easy monthly payment options as well.
