Regular Maintenance Is More Important Than You Think

3 Ways a Tune-up Can Help You Save Money

heating service new jerseyIf you think the seasonal tune-ups we recommend every season are just a marketing scheme, think again.

Your heating system is one of the largest investments you make in your home. The best way to protect your investment is to have professional maintenance service performed on your equipment every year. Our technicians are pros who take your system through a multi-point check designed to catch little problems before they turn into expensive breakdowns. You may think you’re saving a little money by skipping your seasonal maintenance, but chances are a breakdown will cost you a lot more than the tune-up.

Not convinced? Here are three more ways a tune-up will help you save money:

  1. Lower bills. A well-maintained heating system runs more efficiently, burning less fuel to keep you comfortable. That translates into savings on your fuel bills – often as much as 10 percent!
  2. Better return on your investment. In short: Your equipment will last longer. Regular maintenance can add years to the life of your furnace or boiler. Neglected heating equipment will need to be replaced sooner than expected—a big expense that can be avoided with seasonal tune-ups.
  3. Warranty protection. For most people, a good warranty is a key consideration with a major purchase like a heating system. Why jeopardize that coverage? Most heating equipment warranties require routine professional service as a precondition; skip your tune-up and your manufacturer could be voided, leaving you to pay out of pocket for expenses that would have been covered

Most importantly, your equipment will run when you need it most. It’s not the average winter temps that strain your equipment. It’s that stretch of single-digit days and those polar vortexes that force your heating system to work extra hard to heat your home. Routine maintenance catches heating system problems in their early stages, helping you avoid inconvenient equipment breakdowns and the potentially costly repairs that come with them.
