Skipped Fall Maintenance? Here’s What Can Happen

woman-with-surprised-expressionWe’re in our chilliest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean there’s no time left to schedule maintenance. Yes, heating maintenance is something we recommend for the fall. The reason for this is that it gives your heater the best chance to get through winter efficiently and effectively without breaking down. It’s actually more important, however, to be consistent with maintenance than it is to have it done at a certain time of the year.

That said, if you did skip fall maintenance this heating season, and you don’t plan on scheduling it any time soon, you may be unpleasantly surprised by the consequences. Keep reading to learn what can happen when you skip your heating maintenance for an entire year.

You Risk Your Safety

Now, gas-powered heating in Bergen County, NJ is not inherently dangerous. However, natural gas can be hazardous if it’s leaking into your home due to heating system damage that’s gone undetected. One of the main tasks our technicians complete during your heating maintenance session is to check to see that the system is running as safely as possible.

Heating Efficiency Drops

A heater, no matter what type of system it is, will start losing efficiency when it goes without maintenance. Within just a few years, the drop can be pretty steep and can result in the system draining 25% more power than it should. Maintenance helps to keep your furnace or heat pump system at peak efficiency throughout its lifespan.

There’s an Increase in Repair Needs

Did you know that approximately 85% of the repairs any heater needs on average during its lifespan are repairs that can be prevented? This is thanks to routine preventive maintenance. Why not save on hassles and unnecessary repair costs for your heating system?

Heating System Lifespan is Reduced

Replacing your heater years before you should have to is expensive. You want to receive the longest life possible from your furnace, heat pump, etc. If your heater isn’t regularly maintained, however, it will likely fail years earlier. With maintenance, it will probably exceed its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan.
