Is Now A Good Time For Heating Maintenance?

hvac tune-up pennsylvaniaAs temperatures rise through the summer months here in PA, most people forget about their heating equipment. But now is actually one of the better times of year to get your heating system maintenance out of the way, for several important reasons.

For one thing, scheduling routine heating maintenance is easier now than later in the summer or early fall, when everyone else is booking their service appointments. Expert technicians are usually in high demand during peak heating months, but they tend to have more availability during the “shoulder seasons.”

Another reason to schedule maintenance this time of year is that you don’t need your heating equipment – which means that if your system needs a little downtime, it won’t compromise your comfort.

But one of the best reasons for getting maintenance out of the way now –especially if you have older heating equipment – is that if you run into a problem with your furnace or boiler and need to replace it, offseason is best time to upgrade. Prices on heating equipment installations in PA are typically lower now than at other times of the year, incentives are more common, and as we saw earlier top-notch heating installation technicians have more open appointment times.

The takeaway here: After a long, cool spring and extended use in 2020/21, now is the perfect time to give your heating system the attention it needs! Heating maintenance from the expert technicians at Bedford Valley Petroleum will pay for itself with increased efficiency and fewer repairs.
