I’ve Got a Busy Fall: Can I Skip Heating Maintenance This Year?

We understand that the fall season can often be one of the busiest times of the year. It hardly seems like the summer has ended before planning for Halloween and Thanksgiving and visiting relatives and kids going to school start consuming all the days of the calendar. With all that’s going on, do you really need to worry about one more thing like scheduling heating maintenance? Why not put it off until next year?

You must have maintenance every year

No, you really cannot skip fall maintenance for your furnace, heat pump, boiler, or radiant heating system. The consequences can be severe.

First, and perhaps most important, this maintenance will keep your heating system reliable. When the winter cold arrives, you don’t want to have a heating system that is at risk of abruptly failing on you because of a malfunction. A heater that misses maintenance has a much higher chance of breaking down during the coming season than one that receives its regular inspection and tune-up during the fall.

Second, maintenance will make your winter heating less expensive. A heater will start to lose energy efficiency if it misses an annual visit, and you’ll end up paying more over the winter to warm the house.

Finally—and this is especially true for gas-powered furnaces and boilers—annual maintenance will keep your heater running safely. You don’t want to put your family’s safety at risk by delaying this important inspection for the heating system.
