It’s Time for Fall Heating Maintenance

It’s almost time to turn off your air conditioner for the year, as we move out of the summer season and into fall. While fall is typically a milder season, that doesn’t mean that you can stop thinking about your climate control. Fall is the ideal time to get your heating system ready for the demands of winter. Let’s take a look at why you should schedule fall maintenance right now.

Why Preventive Maintenance is so Important

No matter what time of year you have it done, late preventive maintenance is better than no preventive maintenance at all. Calling for repairs as soon as you notice your system acting strangely is all well and good, but it won’t prevent the damage that occurs before symptoms prevent themselves. The point of preventive maintenance is to find and fix issues before they have the chance to actually cause damage to the system. This can save you thousands of dollars in the long run, by preventing a great many problems that would otherwise have caused a need for repairs.

Why Fall Maintenance?

The best time to conduct maintenance on any system is right before you plan on using it more often. This is because the more demand you put on a system, the more wear and tear you create and the greater the chance of a problem developing. Fall maintenance makes sure that your heating system can cope with the added stress of keeping your home warm all winter. If you want your heating system to be as prepared as possible for the winter, it’s a good idea to schedule fall maintenance every year.
