Sure, we recommend it in the fall, typically. The reason for this is that it gives you plenty of time to get ahold of a service technician and reduces the risk of an interruption in service. Ensuring that you have your heater maintained at least once a year (twice, if you have a heat pump system) will help it perform at its best, and is more important than what time of the year you have it done.

It’s during these tune-ups that our pros are able to comprehensively inspect and clean your heating system, make necessary adjustments, and recommend repair needs as we go so that you have plenty of time to get them on your schedule before you need your heater. Skipping or delaying maintenance can lead to a number of heating issues, with two of the most common being a heater that won’t start up, and conversely, a heater that won’t stop running.

You shouldn’t have to resort to just keeping out of the cooler rooms or turning the temperature up so high that it’s sweltering in one area but cooler in another.
