It has been frequently said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. For example, most people would never dream of driving their cars without changing their engine oil. Paying a mechanic for routine maintenance is not an enjoyable experience for anyone, but drivers who take regular care of their cars know that doing so will most likely help them avoid costly repairs in the future.
However, many homeowners don’t think about maintenance when it comes to their heating systems. As long as their heaters are working fine when the cold temperatures start to arrive, they think everything’s O.K. Others avoid heating maintenance because they want to save money. Yet when their heaters go out during really cold weather or on a holiday when they have a house full of guests, they will quickly find out that any money they might have saved on maintenance costs over the years is far less than the cost to repair their heating systems.
Regular heating maintenance is critical, and saves you money over the long run. If maintained properly, your home’s heater will run more efficiently and will last longer. Therefore, it is important to change your filters regularly, and have your heater inspected every year by a qualified professional. This will also ensure that any original warranties from the manufacturer on the equipment will be honored down the road.
