Temps Are Dropping in PA – Is Your Heating System Ready?

Posted: November 14, 2018

Feeling cold

Well, fall was late to arrive here in Pennsylvania – but once it finally did, temperatures dropped pretty quickly, didn’t they?

That kind of up and down weather seems par for the course these days – which is a big part of the reason why you need routine annual maintenance for your furnace or boiler.

Your heating equipment works hardest when it has to respond to sudden shifts in weather – a 30-degree temperature drop in December, for example (we had several of those last winter). Sometimes a heating system that seems to be working fine at a trot will be hiding a problem that won’t be apparent until your equipment is at a full sprint – at which point you may be stuck with a no-heat emergency (if that happens, don’t worry – we’ll be there for you 24/7/365!).

The beauty of getting annual preventative maintenance for your heating oil- or gas-fired heating system is that your technician will spot the warning signs of a problem early, when a heating system repair is easier and less costly for you. As a bonus, routine maintenance will help your equipment to run more efficiently, which means lower energy bills for you this winter (a tune-up will usually pay for itself in energy savings over the course of a season).

The bottom line: Four out of five no-heat repairs are preventable with routine care, which makes an annual tune-up (included in our high value Service Plans) a no-brainer investment. If you want peace of mind this heating system, contact us for routine heating system maintenance today.
