Is Your Heating System Ready for the Cold Weather?

September 22, 2016

Frosted foliageLast winter Boston may have experienced mild temperatures, but in New England you can’t expect each season to be the same as the last. Back in 2014, the streets were piled high with fluffy, white snow and in December 2015 we were basking in the ‘summer-like’ temperatures. With the constant inconsistencies, Winters® Home Services highly recommends getting your heater ready ahead of time.

Take a look at our Bundle Up Plan to stay ahead of the game! Below are a few tips to make sure your heater is in top-notch condition.

Schedule Your Heating Service

Many homeowners forget to have a professional HVAC team come out for heating services but it’s actually quite important. In some instances, the heating system could have a carbon monoxide leak or gas leak. Having an HVAC professional take a look is the best way to keep your family safe from any heating system hazards.

Fix Repairs Ahead of Time

If you don’t fix your heater during the warmer months you could end up with some serious problems once winter rolls around. Sometimes there is a heating repair that you aren’t aware, stemming from a mechanical or electrical issue.

An electrical connection that wears down slowly over time is something to consider along with a slow fan motor. When you crank up your heat in the winter and the system breaks down, this could catch you off guard. Receiving an annual maintenance visit allows you to catch the problems ahead of time.

Save Money

An annual maintenance visit will actually help you save a significant amount of money in the long run. You won’t have unexpectedly high energy bills or have to pay for costly repairs.

Winters® Home Services has been providing maintenance visits, heating repairs, installations and replacements for over 20 years. We can make visits to a number of areas in Massachusetts. Feel free to give us a call at 617-221-5899 or fill out our contact form.
