As you enjoy another summer in the Great Lakes State, we know that your furnace or boiler is probably the last thing on your mind. Yet, it’s the perfect time to take care of your annual heating maintenance. Here’s why this makes sense.
By scheduling your annual tune-up now, you can take advantage of your local Michigan HVAC service provider having a more open schedule– instead of being jammed with emergency heating repairs—a common situation during the winter months.
You see, every fall, HVAC service providers go through this challenge. The first cold snaps hit, and phones ring off the hook with no-heat calls. At the same time, these HVAC companies may also be booked solid with tune up appointments.
It puts them in a terrible bind, as they will eventually have to disappoint someone. But since being stuck with no heat in 30-degree temperatures can pose real risks, they normally end up having to reschedule their tune up appointments.
Most HVAC service companies in Michigan gs through this, in part because customers think they need to wait until fall to get a tune-up—or else they don’t give it any thought until the weather turns chilly. But by waiting until the last minute, you may run into a situation where you find your boiler or furnace needs major repairs—and you may end up having to replace your equipment under a tight time frame.
HVAC systems can have longer lifespans if the equipment has been properly installed and maintained. That’s why it’s highly recommend that you get regular preventive maintenance for your furnace or boiler.. Proper maintenance may enable you to put off replacing your system for a few years; but do keep in mind that no amount of maintenance will make your equipment more efficient than it was when you first bought it.
Your HVAC service provider will conduct a thorough inspection of your entire heating system. During this inspection, problems can be identified and fixed before they become expensive repairs. If they your HVAC service provider finds a major issue that warrants a replacement system, you do have some good options that will save you money.
