Sign Up for Our Maintenance Program and Get Your Heater Ready 

Although the start of fall doesn’t automatically mean the end of hot weather, it’s a good time to start thinking ahead to the change in seasons and the arrival of the cold. You want to make sure you have a home heating system that’s ready to take on another winter without trouble. The best way to do that is to arrange for professional HVAC maintenance in North Myrtle Beach, SC with our team. We have a special maintenance program that provides you with heating and cooling maintenance during the year, plus special benefits.

Need more convincing? We’ll explain why routine heating maintenance is an essential job to have done each fall.

Prevent most repairs

The majority of repairs that a heating system will need during its service life are due to neglect. So if you stay current with annual heating maintenance, you’ll eliminate more than 50% of the repairs you’d need to bother with and pay for. That adds up to significant savings and less time dealing with the hassle and discomfort of a malfunctioning heating system.

Pay Less to Run the Heater

Your heating system has an energy efficiency rating that tells you how well it turns its energy source (such as gas or electricity) into heating output. That rating won’t mean much if the heater isn’t getting attention from HVAC professionals each year to inspect it and give it a tune-up. The heater will start to decline and lose its energy efficiency rating—and that will cause your utility bills to rise each year. You might soon end up paying 25% more to run your heater than you should. But if you maintain your heating system, it will keep most of its original energy efficiency rating during its service life.

Longer Equipment Lifespan

The same wear and tear on a heater that causes extra repair issues and dropping energy efficiency also shortens its service life. You may need to replace your heater after only eight years or so when you could’ve easily gotten another five to seven years from it. Maintenance helps you to get the best return on your original investment in home heating.

Avoid Surprise Breakdowns

The best intangible benefit of maintaining your heating system is the peace of mind it brings. When professionals give your heater a full tune-up and inspection before the winter arrives, the heater has the best chance of working through the season without problems. You can relax in the knowledge that your heater will come on whenever you need it to. 

Keep the Warranty Valid

Failing to schedule professional maintenance regularly can void the equipment warranty on your heater. This isn’t a consumer protection you want to lose, since it can lead to you having to pay for repairs the warranty would have otherwise covered.
