Now that heating season is almost over, the last thing you probably want to think about is the next winter cold spell you’ll need it for. But springtime is a prime opportunity to get your heating system inspected and repaired if necessary. At Shipley Energy Home Services, we strongly encourage our customers to schedule their annual furnace maintenance service before the busy season hits to ensure they get an appointment that works with their schedules.
If you normally schedule your furnace maintenance service in the fall, consider opting for spring instead. Here are a few reasons why the heating experts at Shipley Energy Home Services encourage customers to tune up their heating systems soon after winter ends.
While it may seem odd to some homeowners to schedule furnace maintenance so far out, spring furnace maintenance offers a handful of benefits that waiting until September doesn’t. In fact, waiting until peak heating season to schedule maintenance often leaves customers in a mad scramble to find service availability.
So, this year, why not try scheduling for spring?
A common misconception among many homeowners is that scheduling furnace maintenance closer to the following winter will ensure that their heating systems are in top condition for the colder months. However, you can easily maintain your spring furnace tune-up until winter with regular care throughout the spring and summer.
We recommend scheduling your furnace maintenance in the spring for the following reasons:
When you schedule your service for the spring, you’re nearly guaranteed to get an appointment that works perfectly with your schedule. Since most homeowners still schedule their furnace maintenance appointments a few months before winter, spring furnace maintenance frees you up to have licensed HVAC technicians come to your home when it’s convenient for you.
When you schedule your furnace maintenance service in the springtime, you give yourself some extra wiggle room for any recurring service appointments if necessary.
If a technician determines that your system needs repairs, or if you want to install a brand-new heating system, beginning this process long before winter gives you the time you need to make sure your heating system is in good working order for the cold months.
Since your heating and AC systems share a number of components with one another, maintaining your heating system in the spring will also set your AC system up for smooth operation in the summer. When you take care of your furnace, your entire HVAC system will benefit — which is especially important as we enter the hot summer months.
When you opt for spring furnace maintenance, you beat the crowds to scheduling a service appointment and benefit your entire HVAC system.
