As temperatures rise through April and into May, most people want to forget about their heating systems – they’d rather be planting their garden or planning their beach getaway.
But spring is actually one of the best times of year to get your heating system maintenance out of the way, for several important reasons.
For one thing, scheduling routine heating maintenance is easier in the spring than later in the year, when everyone else is booking their service appointments. Expert technicians are usually in high demand during peak heating and cooling months, but they tend to have more availability during “shoulder seasons” (early spring and late summer/early fall).
Another reason to schedule maintenance this time of year is that it’s not dangerously cold, so if your equipment needs a little downtime you can usually manage without heat for a couple of days.
But an overlooked reason for getting maintenance out of the way in the spring –especially if you have older heating equipment – is that if you run into a problem with your furnace or boiler and need to replace it, spring is the best time to upgrade. In early spring, prices on heating equipment installations in PA are typically lower than at other times of the year, incentives are more common, and as we saw earlier top-notch heating installation technicians have more open appointment times.
The bottom line: After a long heating season, spring is the perfect time to give your heating system the attention it needs! Heating maintenance from the expert technicians at Oehlert Bros. will pay for itself with increased efficiency and fewer repairs.
