The temperatures are dropping fast around Rhode Island and the heating season has officially begun. Is your heating system ready to take on the cold? The performance of your HVAC system is affected by several factors, one of the most important being regular maintenance.

We’re HVAC experts here at CARJON, offering both residential and commercial heating maintenance services. When it comes to keeping your home or business comfortable this winter, we have the expertise needed to provide reliable HVAC services on any type of heating system. 

The Benefits of Heating Maintenance

Regardless of whether you have a traditional furnace, boiler, or a heat pump, regular maintenance is worth the cost and consideration. In general, we recommend getting a tune-up on your heating system at least once a year, however you may need it more often depending on your usage and the age of your system. 

Maintaining your HVAC system annually can have many benefits, including:

Greater Efficiency

Regular tune-ups involve a thorough cleaning of each component of your heating system, which allows it to operate at peak efficiency. This also means your HVAC may consume less energy and can help lower your heating costs through the winter months. 

Optimized Home Comfort

Maintenance helps your heating system reach and maintain the desired temperatures in your home more easily. This means that you’ll experience more consistent heating and feel more comfortable, even in the worst winter storm.  

Early Diagnosis of HVAC Issues

During a tune-up, our technicians will inspect and test all of the functions of your heating system to ensure they’re working properly. This helps with daily operation, but also allows our team to discover small issues before they turn into big problems—helping you prevent future breakdowns.

Longer Lasting Heating System

A dirty and poorly maintained machine of any kind will need to work harder to achieve the same results, which could in turn shorten its lifespan, and HVAC systems are no different. Regular furnace maintenance takes unnecessary stress off your furnace, boiler, or heat pump, making it last longer.

Improved Safety

If you have a furnace or boiler that uses combustion to provide heat, maintenance can help make sure you stay safe from carbon monoxide and other dangerous chemicals that can end up in your home’s breathing air.
