When Should I Schedule Heating Maintenance?

Now that we are nearing the end of February, we can start to breathe a sigh of relief as the coldest weather of the year fades into memory. Before long we’ll be enjoying the warmth, sun, and fun of the summer season. Don’t let dreams of the summer heat cause you to forget about your heating system, though. It is vitally important that you have your heater serviced on an annual basis in order to keep your system functioning as well as possible. Some homeowners may think that it doesn’t make sense to have their heating system serviced at the end of the season. In truth, though, the time of the year is not what matters, but rather the yearly schedule.

When Was Your System Last Serviced?

If you had your heater serviced last fall, prior to the start of the heating season, then you can certainly wait until fall to have it serviced once more. Just keep in mind, though, the fact that the closer you get to the heating season, the busier heating technicians in your area are likely to be. You don’t want to let your heating maintenance needs sit on the back burner, only to find that you need to run your heater before it’s been serviced. Once you get to that point, it is unlikely that you’ll find a chance to have it serviced within the yearly schedule, and that puts its success at risk.

If you have had your heating system maintained in the spring in the past, there is no reason to change that schedule. In fact, a spring maintenance service makes quite a lot of sense. Your heater is going to have a lot of time off in the coming months, and it is in its roughest condition at the close of the heating season. By getting maintenance out of the way at the close of the heating season, you know that it will be ready and waiting when temperatures drop once more.
