Maintenance helps avoid a breakdown later

Are you one of those people who haven’t gotten around to getting their furnace or boiler the annual maintenance tune-up it needs to run at its peak performance and efficiency? If so, now is the time to get in touch with Kimlin Energy so one of our trained, experienced service technicians can make sure your heating system is ready for what is predicted to be a colder winter than normal.

There are some people who haven’t procrastinated or forgotten. They’re skipping the annual heating system tune-up altogether. And they have a lot of excuses.
Unfortunately, these reasons can come back to haunt them. Here are some of the most popular reasons and why they don’t hold water:

“I got a tune-up before last heating season.”

This isn’t going to help if you ever need to use the manufacturer’s warranty. The majority of these warranties require annual, professional maintenance be done in order for the coverage to remain valid. No tune-up this year might mean no warranty protection down the road.

“I don’t want to spend the money.”

This is a classic example of being penny-wise and pound-foolish. Skipping heating system maintenance to save a few bucks now might lead to you spending a lot of money later. Regular professional maintenance ensures that your furnace or boiler runs at its peak efficiency, resulting in lower monthly energy expenses. It also allows our service providers the opportunity to discover and repair problems that might result in breakdowns or expensive repairs if left unchecked. By the way, our affordable service plans include a tune-up every year as well as savings on repairs.

“I change the air filters, so everything will be fine.”

Yes, changing your air filters on a regular basis is an excellent method to keep your heating system working smoothly and effectively. However, this isn’t all that must be done to care for your heating system. After many long winters of use, a heating system has a lot of moving inner components and pieces that require expert attention and maintenance.

“My heating system worked fine last year.”

Consider your heating system, much as you would your automobile. You wouldn’t say, “I had my car serviced last year; it’ll run just fine this year.” (We hope you wouldn’t!) Your heating system’s efficiency and safety is maintained with an annual tune-up.

“If something breaks, I’ll just get a guy in to fix it.”

If you skip your tune-up and your heating system breaks down, you will likely have to wait longer for service because of increased demand. Is a cold home and the risk of frozen and burst pipes what you want?

Like any major investment, you must keep your home’s heating system in good working order to get the most out of it. We provide high-quality service from installations to tune-ups to emergency repairs. Contact Kimlin Energy today to schedule your heating system’s annual tune-up.
