Is It Time To Schedule Your Heater Maintenance?

With everything else you have to do around the house, it can be difficult to make time for all your tasks throughout the year. Heater maintenance is not something that should fall off your list. When is the right time to schedule your furnace tune-up appointment?

Tim’s Southern Air wants to make your maintenance tasks as easy as possible for you. You should know the best time of year to get seasonal furnace maintenance and how to know when your tuneup is due.

The Best Time Of Year For Tune-Ups

Tune-ups are often called ‘seasonal maintenance’ because they are most effective around the change of seasons. You want to prepare your system to run frequently before the demand is high. For heaters, we use them the most during winter. This means that fall is the prime time to schedule your furnace maintenance. Getting ahead of the system’s performance allows for extra time before you need it to work reliably.

For example, if your heater requires a repair, you want enough time to order the part and have the system fixed before the first cold front hits. If your system is likely to fail altogether in the winter, you may even need to invest in a heater replacement for the upcoming season.

Signs You Need A Tune-Up

If you schedule regular maintenance on your heater in the fall, your system might stay healthy all year long. However, there are some signs that could creep up that indicate the need for a system evaluation. Keep an eye out for these signs and consider calling a professional to take a look at the system.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

One of the main areas of maintenance is your air filters. When your system’s filters become clogged with contaminants, your air quality will start to suffer. If you notice more frequent allergies indoors or respiratory irritation, you might be in need of a tune-up. If you notice abnormal amounts of dust in your home, that could also be a sign that you need your heater checked out.

Increased Energy Bills

While a sudden spike in your electricity consumption may indicate a heater repair, it might also be a concern of efficiency adjustments. A professional will be able to locate the source of your sudden energy usage and recommend the right solution. This is a great reason to schedule your tune-up. The technician assessing your unit will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about having an energy-efficient furnace.

Previous Maintenance

If your system has never had maintenance performed on it, you definitely need to schedule an appointment. A skipped tune-up here and there might not destroy your system, but no maintenance at all could have serious consequences. Your system could fail prematurely, break down frequently or operate very inefficiently.

Now’s The Time!

If you haven’t had your heater maintained this year, it’s time to schedule your appointment. Don’t let this task fall off your list. Make time and you’ll be glad you did. Just give our team at Tim’s Southern Air a call!
