Annual heating system maintenance can benefits homeowners and bring them peace of mind. This maintenance can include examining, cleaning, and efficiency testing which your local technician can take care of. Trying to figure out if regular heating system maintenance is worth it? Keep reading!
1) Save Money in Multiple Ways
Regular heating system maintenance will help you save money in more ways than one. First, an efficiently running heating system will help save on energy costs in the cold winter months. The United States Department of Energy estimates that regular heating system maintenance can save homeowners up to 30 percent on utility bills.
Second, yearly heating system maintenance can reduce the risk by 95 percent of your heating system breaking down. By not having regular maintenance, your heating system may need expensive repairs or need to be. Repair costs can be up to $500 while annual checkups may be less than $200.
2) Extend the Life of Your Heating System
With annual servicing, you can extend the life of your heating system, meaning that it won’t need to be replaced as early as you expected, which saves you money in the long run. In addition, regular maintenance will also help keep your heating system under warranty, which translates to the warranty covering the cost of expensive repairs instead of you.
3) Better for the Environment
Regular heating system maintenance is better for both your indoor air environment as well as the entirety of the Earth’s environment. A well-maintained heating system that operates smoothly and efficiently not only cuts down your heating bills, but it decreases the use of oil, propane, and electricity, which all impact the environment
In your own home, you can breathe better air by having a clean heating system. Over time, dust and other airborne pollutants build up and are transmitted into the air you breathe in your house. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says indoor airborne pollutants may be up to five times higher than outdoor levels. With an ongoing global pandemic that is airborne in origin, it’s more important than ever to have a healthy indoor environment.
4) Peace of Mind
One of the biggest fears that New England homeowners have in the winter is having their pipes freeze. Frozen pipes mean expensive plumbing repair and costly water damage. Knowing that your heating system has been cleaned and inspected by a professional means you don’t have to worry about your pipes freezing when the temperature drops and the heat suddenly stops working.
When your heating system is operating at peak efficiency, you will feel more comfortable in your home during those cold winter months. Walking into your house won’t make you want to head out the door to warm up more. You can just sit back and relax with some hot chocolate without having to leave your couch to turn the heat up or grab another blanket.
