When to Schedule Your Heating System Tune-Up

As a Cape Cod resident, you know how important it is to have heating equipment you can rely on each winter. Keeping it in good condition is easy and affordable if you have a local, professional energy company that offers this service.

Many homeowners arrange for heating system maintenance each fall, just before the cold weather arrives. While having an annual tune-up performed at any time during the year is certainly better than skipping it altogether, there’s a better time to schedule service than when the temperatures begin to drop. Right now is that time!

At the end of winter, getting ready for the next heating season is probably the last thing on your mind. We’re here to tell you exactly why it shouldn’t be! Below are a few reasons why having your heating equipment maintenance performed this spring is ideal.

Why Spring Heating System Maintenance Is Best

1. Spring Cleaning

Whether you are a year-round or seasonal resident of the Lower Cape, the early signs of spring mean it’s time to get your home in order for the months ahead. By adding your tune-up service to your laundry list of springtime housework, it’s just one more thing to check off and feel good about!

2. A Worry-Free Fall

When preparing your property for winter, there’s enough to worry about. Did I ever drain the hose outside? Is there enough fuel in my tank for the first freeze? With your heating system already set to go when you need it, take comfort in knowing a major component of your winterizing routine is already done.

3. Scheduling Flexibility

Your trusted HVAC company works hard to ensure that every service appointment, every heating oil or propane delivery, and every direct communication is as convenient as possible for you and the members of your household. Still, when the weather cools down, HVAC technicians in our area are at their busiest. Having your tune-up performed during the offseason opens up much more flexibility with scheduling, so your appointment time can be exactly when you prefer.

4. More Time for Updates

If your tune-up indicates that a repair or part replacement is necessary, you’ll have months to mull it over, budget for the expense, and schedule the service at a time that’s convenient for you—long before winter. Or, if your equipment is ready for an overhaul, there will be plenty of time to replace it with a more energy-efficient system.
