Keeping Your Heater in Good Shape
A big part of protecting your investment in your heater, and ensuring that it stays in good condition when you need it to be, is scheduling preventive heating maintenance. Heater issues are commonly inconspicuous when they first develop, and only tend to announce themselves after they’ve had time to develop. That means that your heater will have already suffered at least a bit of damage by the time you notice that it’s having problems. In order to catch problems early enough to prevent most of the damage to your heater, you’re going to need to schedule maintenance for it.
Preventive maintenance enables your technician to find and fix problems with your heating system before they develop enough to cause damage, often long before you would have noticed them. If you’re careful to schedule heater tune–ups at least once a year (preferably in the fall) you can both lessen the cost of repairing your system and extend its effective lifespan at the same time.
Don’t Be Afraid to Call for Repairs
Unfortunately, no amount of maintenance can completely remove the possibility of a problem developing with your heater. You are almost certain to have to deal with some type of heater problem in–between maintenance appointments at some point. When that does happen, time is of the essence. The faster you can get your heater repaired, the more damage you can prevent and the better off it will be. You should know the warning signs associated with common heating repair needs. For example:
- Unusually High Bills: Before any warning signs manifest with the heater itself, you might be able to receive warning by monitoring your monthly heating bills. Monthly bills will rise and fall with how much you use the system, of course. If there is an unexplained increase in how much you’re paying for heating every month, though, it could be an indication that your heater is in trouble.
- Odd Noises: You probably know what your heater sounds like when it’s operating by this point. If your heating system suddenly starts to make unusual noises while it’s operating, you should have a professional check it out as soon as possible.
