The Importance of Heating System Maintenance

Posted on: September 8, 2016

heating maintenanceA yearly heating maintenance tune-up is one of the best home repair investments that you can make. Here at AC by J, we say that a yearly heating maintenance inspection and service will lengthen the life of the system, conserve energy, and decrease health risks. It might be hard to believe, but we’ve found that about 75 percent of our “no-heat” calls over the winter are related to a lack of proper maintenance.

While heating system maintenance can be done at any time, early fall is the most convenient time for most homeowners to schedule these visits. Before the cooler months settle in, it’s a good idea to contact your favorite HVAC experts for some fall routine maintenance! Professional care ensures your system is ready to meet the coming season, saving you a lot of potential stress and improving the efficiency of your heating system.

How Important Is Furnace Maintenance in Phoenix?

When the cooler weather arrives in the Phoenix area, you begin to put a lot of demand on a heating system that has essentially been sitting idly for months. There’s no way to tell if your system is up to the task. But maintenance can get you the answers you need. With routine maintenance, you get:

  • A clean system. Dust and junk have been accumulating in your system while it has been sitting idle. This can mean bad air flow, poor efficiency, and can even give cause for some serious repair calls.heating maintenance
  • Maximized efficiency. Regardless of your heating system, you want to be absolutely sure you’re getting the most comfort for the least cost! Routine care is hands-down the best method of improving and maintaining the efficiency of your system.
  • Less breakdowns. By tightening electrical connections, checking major and minor components, and all around providing your system with some much needed care, we’re avoiding the vast majority of causes for repair. Maintenance provides peace of mind that you’re getting the best from your system, and peace of mind that you’ve done all you can to avoid costly breakdowns.’
  • Longer furnace lifespan. A well-maintained system is far, far more likely to last the “standard” 10, 15, or even 20 years that the lifespan projection promises. Without proper care, you’re looking at a furnace that will last little more than five to 10 years before they start breaking down often or losing drastic amounts of energy-efficiency.

What Happens If You Don’t Schedule Maintenance?

So now you understand why regular heating system maintenance is vital—but what will happen if you don’t schedule a tune-up? Without regular maintenance, you could experience:

  • Increased heating bills. Expect energy bills to be as much as 10 to 15 percent higher as a result of inefficient equipment operation! The furnace tune-up pretty much pays for itself.
  • Decreased lifespan. Yearly heating season tune-ups extend equipment life by as much as five years.
  • Frequent breakdowns. As we said above, 75 percent of all HVAC system repairs AC by J does could have been avoided with regular maintenance.
  • Increased health risks. Annual heating inspections save lives all the time. Small cracks in a heat exchanger or other problems could allow deadly carbon monoxide gas to come into your home—which a tune-up will find before it’s too late!
