Imagine kicking off next fall by needing a furnace or boiler repair, right as the heating technicians are entering the busy season – it’s not a pretty picture. Winter is finally drawing to a close in Middlesex County and Norfolk County, MA, and residents may find it tempting to skate to the finish line without doing heater maintenance. But this plan isn’t the best path, and here’s why. A little prevention goes a long way with late-season heater issues and can prolong your system’s lifespan, helping you start out next fall on the right foot. Read further to discover more about why prioritizing your heater as the winter wraps up is important, and how Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling can help.
As spring and summer approach, it’s a good idea to make sure your heater is in top condition, for several reasons. Skipping winter heater maintenance – especially if your heating system didn’t undergo a tune-up back in the fall – is a recipe for trouble in the future. Even if nothing big is wrong with your heater, small problems can be exacerbated while the equipment sits stagnant over the spring and summer. It’s much simpler – and cheaper! – to have your heater evaluated and tuned up now, as technicians enter their slower season.
Believe it or not, some heater problems can actually impact your air conditioner, too. After all, the two systems share a thermostat and ductwork, at a minimum. Air filters, dampers, and electrical wiring may also overlap and be impacted. The takeaway is: if your heater is acting up – or, in the alternative, not working at all – the problem may create trouble for your central air conditioning system as well.
Having the heater checked out by Needham professionals now can give you peace of mind that your air conditioner will be in good condition when you need it in a few weeks or months.
