Between days at the beach or lake, cookouts, and (ugh!) doing back-to-school shopping, your schedule is likely pretty full.
But by having your home’s furnace or boiler get its annual heating tune-up from Johnny Prescott done now, you’ll make your life easier!
During summer, it is convenient to perform maintenance on your home’s furnace or boiler. This is because our service department has a more open schedule, allowing us to schedule your tune-up at the date and time that’s most convenient for you.
The service technicians of Johnny Prescott are well-trained and experienced. They possess the knowledge to help you maximize the efficiency of your heating system.
Did you experience any problems or inefficiencies with your heating system over the past winter? If so, scheduling a tune-up during the summer can help us identify and address any lingering issues and make the necessary repairs to ensure your heating system performs efficiently next winter.
If your boiler or furnace is older, it may be better for you to replace it rather than repair it. Doing this in the summer helps to ensure that your new heating system will be ready to go with the first cold snap.
Our service technicians uphold our standards of honest, fair service. If they think your heating system is good for another winter, they’ll tell you. If they think it needs to be replaced, they’ll lay out the reasons why and give you a competitive and transparent estimate for replacement.
Before replacing your home’s heating system, you should consider several important things. Below are some of the most crucial ones.
Repair costs – When repairing your heating system costs more than 50% of the cost of replacing it, it is usually more financially wise to replace it.
Performance – If you’re experiencing issues with your heating, such as ineffectiveness or unevenness, we will conduct a comprehensive inspection to determine if repairs are possible or if it’s time to consider a replacement.
Heating costs – Consider replacing your furnace or boiler if your heating costs continue to increase despite repairs being made.
There are four clear advantages to having a professional service technician perform an annual tune-up of your furnace or boiler.
Prevent breakdowns – Regular maintenance of your heating system can prevent major repair costs. In fact, four out of five heating repair jobs we perform could have been avoided with an annual tune-up. When our team performs a tune-up on your furnace or boiler, we will also conduct a thorough inspection. This allows us to detect and repair any possible issues before they become bigger and more expensive problems. This helps you to avoid unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs while keeping your system running smoothly.
Keep your heating system energy efficient – To make your heating system work at its best energy efficiency, make sure to have it professionally maintained annually. This can save you 10% on your heating energy costs Considering that heating and cooling account for about half of your home’s energy costs, this can lead to significant savings!
Help your heating system last longer – If maintain your heating system well, its life expectancy will increase compared to a system that is not maintained properly. Consequently, the need to replace your heating system will be delayed, resulting in a better return on your investment.
Protect the warranty – To maintain your warranty, it’s important to have your heating system professionally serviced once a year as required by most manufacturers. If you skip these tune-ups, you may have to pay for costly repairs in the future due to a voided warranty.
