Why Maintain Your Heating System in the Spring?

What You Should Do

heating tune-up massachusettsIt might seem counterintuitive, but spring is a great time to think about your heater. With the days getting warmer and longer, your heater isn’t working as hard. But you want to make sure that it will be ready to serve you and your family all year long (especially when things start cooling down again). So here are some things to think about how to make sure you have no unwelcome surprises in the future.

The Importance of Maintenance

Don’t let the warmer temps tempt you to switch off your heater and forget about it all spring and summer. Now is the best time to schedule a maintenance visit with W. H. Riley & Son. Whether your boiler heating system uses propane, natural gas, or heating oil, our licensed and certified technicians will provide maintenance and can handle any necessary repairs. We are also a full-service furnace company and can also handle all your furnace needs and make sure it’s running optimally.

The Time Is Now

Your heating system works hard every winter—and this past winter has been an especially tough one. That wear and tear adds up. You don’t want to experience a breakdown on a cold, snowy day. Better to schedule a maintenance visit now and get ahead of any potential problems so that come next winter, you have peace of mind and a heating system primed and ready to keep you and your family safe and warm.

Spring is the ideal time to schedule your maintenance visit because by the summer you’ll have the additional expense of keeping your air conditioning up and running. By the time autumn rolls around, you’ll find it harder to schedule a maintenance visit. It’s one of our busier seasons for heating system maintenance and repairs. So from a budgeting and scheduling perspective, now is the ideal time for a heating system maintenance visit.

What to Expect

Annual maintenance visits are designed to address any wear and tear and get ahead of any potential problems before they become serious and disruptive.

During a maintenance visit, your HVAC professional will do the following:

  • Check for damage and potential problems.
  • Replace damaged or overworn parts.
  • Inspect the whole heating system.
  • Replace your filters.
  • Clean your heating unit.
  • Ensure your heating system is working as efficiently as possible.
