Your heater is rapidly going to become the most important system in your home in the coming months. As temperatures drop you’ll be relying on this system more and more. If you haven’t already, now is the time to start considering what you can do to ensure your heater is ready to perform. Maintenance is going to be the best way to do this.
Much like how you train before a marathon or have your car checked out and tuned up before a road trip, you should have your heater maintained before you enter the time of year when you will use this system the most. Let’s explore more about the benefits of getting your maintenance for heater regularly each year.
Improves Heater Efficiency and Performance
First and foremost it is important to note that maintenance helps to improve the energy efficiency and overall performance of your heater. This translates to less energy used and less money spent but just as much warmth and comfort gained. To give you a point of reference, it is worth noting that without maintenance your heater is likely to lose up to 5% of its overall efficiency each year.
Along with this, a heater that is well maintained will have fewer repair needs to contend with. This will mean it performs far more effectively and spends less time waiting for a technician to fix it.
Improves the Safety of Your Heater
Another great reason to invest in yearly maintenance for your heater is that it can help improve the system’s safety and, by default, keep your home safer as well. Specifically, when it comes to a furnace heater that is gas-powered, maintenance can help to identify and address any problems that could prove dangerous in the future, such as a gas leak from a cracked heat exchanger.
Help Your System Last Longer
Last but certainly not least, maintenance is going to help you get the highest number of years out of your heating system. The regular wear and tear that your heater accumulates throughout the course of a season can end up shortening its lifespan. Without maintenance you may be able to get to the 10-year mark for your heater; however, with maintenance, your system is more likely to push past the minimum of 10 years and can easily reach 15 years old before needing replacement.
