Homeowners hear a lot of buzz about the importance of tune-ups from HVAC companies. That’s because we want your HVAC system to be in top shape year-round for your comfort and safety. Furnace tune-ups prevent repairs and make your system run well for longer, so let’s discuss when and how to go about scheduling your heating system tune-up.
The Best Time for a Heater Tune-Up
Your HVAC system should be maintained twice a year, once for your AC and once for your heater. The best time to schedule furnace maintenance is in the fall before cold weather sets in and your heater becomes a daily necessity. This way, your HVAC technician can make sure the system is working correctly and catch any repairs before they cause a problem. Fall is also a good time to schedule maintenance because HVAC contractors are less busy once the summer installation season ends.
Even New Systems Need Maintenance
A common myth about new heating systems is that they don’t need regular maintenance, but neglecting your new system could damage it if something goes wrong. While a new system shouldn’t need any repairs for a while, scheduling a fall tune-up:
- Keeps the system clean
- Improves energy efficiency
- Ensures the system doesn’t need repairs
- Reduces the chance of breakdowns
Beginning your furnace’s life by neglecting its maintenance sets it on a path to early replacement. Keeping up with maintenance, however, can make the system work better for longer.
The Bottom Line
When push comes to shove, timing isn’t essential to your heater’s maintenance. A tune-up during the summer or in the middle of winter is better than no tune-up at all, so don’t put too much stress on scheduling your heater tune-up at just the right time. Remember that the most important thing is keeping your home comfortable and safe during every season.
