Cooler weather has arrived for October, and if you’ve lived for some time in Minnesota, you know how fast the cold winter weather can strike. The infamous Halloween Blizzard of 1991—now there’s a good example of how quick extreme winter can hit. You don’t want to be caught off-guard with a heating system that isn’t ready to do its job, which is why now is the time to arrange for your annual heating maintenance with our professionals.
Heating Maintenance Is a Minnesota Essential
In any place in the country, HVAC contractors advise customers to arrange for routine heating maintenance. Even Southern California and Florida homes need to have working heaters at some time during the winters. However, a broken heater in a Los Angeles winter may mean inconvenience and some discomfort. In Minnesota, where temperatures remain sub-freezing during most of the season, a failed heater a major emergency and can even be life-threatening.
Regular maintenance for a residential heating system, such as a gas furnace or boiler, is vital for peace of mind each Minnesota winter. Trying to deal with our intense winter colds without a properly tuned-up heater is like hopping into a car for a cross-country trip when the oil change warning light is on… it’s a big risk! The heater might fail, or at least suffer extra damage that shortens its service life.
In the case of gas-powered furnaces and boilers, which are common in this area, maintenance is also necessary to ensure the safe operation of the system. Inspections look for places where there may be gas leaks or combustion hazards.
On a less urgent note, routine maintenance is an important energy saver. You already pay plenty to run the heater during our long winters, but you’ll pay more than necessary with a furnace that missed out on its regular tune-up and inspection. The extra strain means a system that drains higher amounts of energy. Regular maintenance helps pay for itself by keeping bills under control. (You’ll also be saving money because of the fewer number of repairs the system will need over its lifetime.)
