It’s been a long summer here in Hammond, LA, but temperatures are finally starting to fall as the cooler weather of autumn predominates. Considering everything we’ve been through this summer, it’s more important than ever to schedule a maintenance session for your heating system from a trained technician. Doing so can save you time, money and heartache this heating season.
A maintenance session isn’t the same as a repair session. Repairs are designed to treat a specific problem in your system. Maintenance calls, on the other hand, are designed to do two much more generalized tasks:
- Perform little corrections to address inefficiency. This includes things like cleaning filters, unclogging burnings, tightening loose bolts and performing all those other little tasks that don’t merit a service call on their own, but can add up to serious problems if they aren’t treated. Besides reducing wear and tear on the system, they help your heater function more efficiently, and lower the monthly cost of running it over the winter. When applied regularly over time, maintenance sessions can even extend the life of your system.
- Address any looming repair issues. Most breakdowns leave signs of trouble well before they force your system out of action. A maintenance session is a great way to spot those issues before that happens. Doing so now gives you a few weeks before cold weather sets in to schedule repairs at your leisure, which beats having to rush around in the face of an oncoming cold front. Furthermore, by scheduling repairs sooner rather than later, you’re likely going to pay less than you might otherwise since there’s been less time for the damage to spread.
If you haven’t given your heating system a close look yet in 2016, now is the time to act. Call on the pros at A Professional to get your system checked out before winter!
