The Surprising Savings of Annual Maintenance

5 Ways Tune-ups Save You Unnecessary Energy Costs

energy cost savings new hampshireWe hear it every year: “I didn’t have any problems last winter; do I really need to tune up my boiler or furnace again this year?”

The answer is always: yes! It’s the regular maintenance that kept your heating system running smoothly through all the winter storms and deep freezes. The folks who thought they could skip a tune-up are nearly always the ones who had to call us in the middle of the night for a no-heat emergency. On top of that, they probably used more fuel than usual, driving their bills higher.

New Hampshire winters are no joke, so it pays to be sure your heating system is ready to go before the cold weather arrives. And we mean that literally—regular maintenance keeps your system running at peak efficiency. That means you’ll burn fuel more efficiently and keep heating costs down. That can add up to 10% savings on annual heating costs. Those kinds of savings count for a lot as we head into another season of price uncertainty.

The Key Benefits to Heating System Maintenance

Still not sure if you need a tune-up? Here are 5 reasons not to skip seasonal maintenance for your heating system.

  1. Protection. If your equipment is older, regular maintenance will extend its lifespan. If you have a new system, it will protect your investment and keep it running like new.
  2. Prevention. A comprehensive tune-up performed by a trained technician will prevent or correct minor issues, helping you avoid the expense and inconvenience of a major malfunction.
  3. Coverage. Most heating equipment warranties require routine professional service as a precondition. Skip your tune-up and your manufacturer’s warranty could be voided, leaving you to pay out of pocket for expenses that would have otherwise been covered.
  4. Safety. Tune-ups include an inspection of the heat exchanger. When gone unnoticed, a cracked heat exchanger can leak carbon monoxide into your home.
  5. Health. Regular service to your HVAC system will keep the indoor air in your home circulating and clean. Better air quality in your home will help keep your family more comfortable, especially if anyone suffers from allergies or respiratory ailments.
