Reasons to Schedule Your Annual Check-Up

Your family depends on your heating system to stay warm and comfortable during the winter months. If you want to keep your heating system functioning properly and get the most from your investment, it is important to schedule an annual tune-up. Keeping up with preventative maintenance offers several key benefits for your heating system and home comfort.

Yearly heating maintenance helps to:

This can help you avoid a larger repair in the middle of the winter.

How Often Should You Change Your Heater's Filters?

Changing the filters in your home's heating system is a very important, but often neglected, part of your heater's regular maintenance. Air filters should be changed every 90 days. When an air filter is not changed it becomes dirty and clogs up the system.

Dirty filters can lead to poor indoor air quality and an increase in heating bills. The increase in heating bills comes from your heating system needing to work harder to push air through the clogged filter and into your home's ductwork.
