We all know how exciting the holidays can be, but heating issues could cramp your style. Helena, MT gets awfully cold during the winter, so you want to be sure that your heating system is up to the task of keeping you warm. One of the best things you can do to get your system ready is schedule a fall heating tune-up with Big Sky Plumbing & Heating
What Happens During Heating Maintenance
During a maintenance appointment, our heating technicians inspect your system from top to bottom. They clean and lubricate moving parts, check wiring connections, replace or clean air filters, and calibrate your thermostat. If they come across any minor issues that need to be repaired, they will take care of them to prevent a breakdown in the middle of the cold winter. It is important to note that all heating systems, including furnaces, heat pumps, and boilers, need annual maintenance, and the fall is the perfect time to schedule it.
Why You Need a Fall Heating Tune-up
Tuning up your heating system in the fall properly prepares it for the heating season once it starts. During the warmer months, heating system problems can go undetected because the system is dormant. An HVAC professional can identify these issues during routine maintenance. Fall maintenance also gives your HVAC technician the chance to inspect ductwork and provide recommendations for ways to improve your energy efficiency.
Keeping Things Running Efficiently
As your heating system works to keep you warm year after year, internal components suffer wear and tear that can drastically reduce the system’s efficiency. A system that struggles to operate will cost much more to run and have a harder time keeping you warm. Maintenance improves efficiency and helps ensure that your unit reaches its full expected lifespan. This means that you will save a significant amount of money by investing in an annual tune-up. If your system is under warranty, an annual fall tune-up will also keep the warranty valid in case you encounter any issues that need to be repaired.
