The Benefits of Annual Heating Maintenance

How have the seasons felt for you and your family as they shifted from one to another during a global pandemic? Were you able to enjoy a socially distanced summer and see some friends outside? Have you spent more time inside, finally nailing the art of the “Zoom Happy Hour”?

No matter how this year has been, the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021 will have homeowners from Brentwood to Webster Groves looking at more time inside, which means we will all be depending on our heating systems heavily to keep us comfortable as the St. Louis temperatures drop. 

Don’t fall prey to the common mistake of forgetting your annual heating and furnace maintenance! SmartHouse has watched as homeowners let their furnace fall into disarray, costing them in home comfort and heating costs. Here is what you should know about heating maintenance, and how you can benefit. 

Heating Maintenance—What’s In It for You?

If you already have a stacked calendar, you’re probably thinking, “Why would I need to go through the trouble of schedule heating maintenance services?” Here are just a few reasons:

  • Lower heating bills
  • Safer operation of your furnace, boiler, or heat pump
  • Greatly reduced risk of a furnace breakdown
  • Longer system life expectancy
  • Increased home comfort

If energy savings and increased comfort aren’t enough to convince you, consider that neglecting your furnace may save you from having to schedule HVAC service now, but it won’t save you any time (or money) later if you end up dealing with a broken-down furnace in the middle of a sub-freezing St. Louis night!

Plus, for furnaces and boilers that utilize combustion, regular heating maintenance can ensure your home is a safer place. With our combustion safety checks, we will be able to tell if your heating equipment is posing a carbon monoxide risk to you and your family, or if any failing parts may eventually lead to a larger, more dangerous furnace issue.
