Money doesn’t grow on trees. In fact, if it did, you wouldn’t need a blog post like this to figure out whether maintenance was worth the cost or not. People’s budgets are tighter, and with record inflation and kids going back to school, homeowners just don’t have that much money to spend on home appliances.
What point are we trying to make? We’d like to make a case for heating maintenance in Shrewsbury, MA, even if it seems like an “additional service.” It’s not additional or optional, no matter what other people tell you, and investing in this service might save you money later.
If you’d like to learn more about why heating maintenance can save you money and improve your home’s efficiency, then keep reading. We’ll focus today on what customers can hope to get when they sign up for maintenance.
Keep Your Warranty
First, let’s talk about one of the most valuable things protecting your heating system–it’s warranty. The warranty is something that we often buy and feel good about, but quickly forget since it’s not something tangible that we keep around us.
If you purchased a heating system with a warranty, there’s likely fine print that says the system must undergo yearly maintenance in order to stay protected. This is important, because the moment you skip out on yearly maintenance, you might not be covered for any repairs or issues in the future.
Think of your warranty as a protective cover for your heating system that shields you (and your budget) from all problems that might otherwise be a nightmare to deal with. However, skipping out on yearly maintenance means pulling that cover off and being susceptible to all of these problems that can put a serious dent in your budget.
Keep your warranty by scheduling maintenance, even if you think you won’t need it.
Improved Energy and Fuel Efficiency
One of the other huge benefits of maintenance is energy or fuel efficiency. HVAC systems degrade over time and they can also start sucking up more energy. This is fine for your home comfort, but it can be bad for your budget.
Imagine your car burning 5% more gas every year you drive it. Eventually, you’d be paying absurd prices just to drive to work in the morning, right? Well, your heating system can degrade at that level and cause your home heating bills to skyrocket in just a few years.
Maintenance helps curb this process by allowing a technician to tune up and maintain the system. We even clean components to ensure they’re working with maximum efficiency.
Peace of Mind
Sometimes the stress of having an HVAC system in your home can be a burden. You never quite know if it’s in good condition or if it’s on the way out unless you’ve got a certificate or license in the home comfort industry.
We totally get it. This is one of the primary reasons for investing in maintenance, which is leaving you stress-free for the rest of the winter. No technician will leave a faulty system when providing maintenance, and we can even warn you for future repairs if we notice anything off.
