Nothing is quite as inconvenient as being in the heart of winter and having your heater give out on you. Between trying to stay warm and scheduling a good time to have a professional come out and fix the heat, it can be a rough couple of days. So that leads us to our main question: why schedule your heating system tune-up in the summer? Well, there are quite a few reasons, and we’ll go into more detail on them below.
It Doesn’t Hurt To Be Proactive
If you get your heater inspection in the summer, you won’t have to worry about it going out in the winter when you need it the most. Plus, if there is anything wrong with it, you will have plenty of time to fix it. If you found the same problem in the winter, you would have to fix it immediately. Taking care of it in the summer gives you time to plan out the repair without having to stress about when parts will be coming in.
Easier to Schedule a Time
Unsurprisingly, winter is the busiest time for heating companies. As a result, you’ll find most of the ideal times already booked up, so you’ll need to schedule maintenance during a time that probably won’t work for you. On the other side of things, summer is the off-season, so it is easier to schedule a tune-up according to your own plans rather than the company’s availability.
When you’re proactive, you always have the chance of saving money in the long run. If you catch a problem before it happens, the overall cost for the fix is usually much lower than if your unit completely broke down. On top of that, some companies have discounts on their services during the summer since business is slower. There’s nothing quite like a sale to drive business.
