It’s November – Don’t Forget to Schedule Heating Maintenance!

It’s hard to believe we are just a couple of weeks from the Thanksgiving holiday, but we are, and if you haven’t had your heating system in Des Moines, IA professionally maintained, it’s time to give us a call. We work on all major types of heating systems, including furnaces, heat pumps and radiant heating systems. Why is maintenance so important? Let’s take a look:

Better Energy Efficiency

No homeowner wants to spend more money on energy than needed, but you will if you haven’t had your heater properly maintained. Why? The EPA estimates that for every year you don’t have a professional perform maintenance on your heating system, you will lose 5% of your system’s overall efficiency. Maintenance allows your system to operate at the highest efficiency possible, a result you’ll see in your monthly fuel bills.

Less Incidence of Repair

There are two reasons why maintenance helps reduce repairs. First, your system undergoes a full inspection that allows your technician to find any existing or developing issues. Small items can be attended to during the maintenance appointment and larger issues can be scheduled for repair. The second reason that maintenance helps reduce repair is that all the components of your heating system are cleaned, adjusted and lubricated, putting them in optimal shape to work.

Extend Life of the Equipment

At the end of any maintenance appointment, your heating system is left in good working order. A system that operates in good shape is one that isn’t stressed or operating under stressful conditions. This helps extend the life of the equipment.

Maintenance for your heating system is a full tune-up of the system, and as such, should always be performed by a trained expert. The professionals from Schaal Heating and Cooling are here to help with all of your maintenance needs, so give us a call to schedule your appointment.
