Benefits of Scheduling Your Oil Heater Tune-Up in the Fall

The brisk winter months are just around the corner, and it's important to prepare your heater to keep you warm. Don't wait for an unexpected breakdown to have a professional technician check on your heater! In this article, we'll cover several benefits of getting your oil heater tune-up in the Fall, rather than in the middle of winter. 

If we had to pick the most ideal time to schedule your oil heater tune-up, it would be at the end of summer. This is a time when air conditioning maintenance appointments are finishing up, and fewer service calls are coming in as the temperatures are in a transitional period.
With that being said, the second best time is in autumn! Since the weather around Bucks County and Philadelphia is not too cold yet, it's a perfect time to schedule a heater tune-up. Keep reading to learn five reasons why fall maintenance is a smart choice.

5 Reasons to Schedule Your Oil Heater Tune-Up in Fall

1. Plan ahead

You've already had AC maintenance, the kids are back at school, and the busyness of summer has died down. Why not cross something off your to-do list ahead of time? Be prepared for the remainder of fall and winter by getting your oil tune-up while it's not too cold out. That way, you'll be all set with a well-functioning heater once the temperatures start to drop.

2. No surprises

By scheduling your maintenance in advance, you not only avoid any last-minute surprises but also provide ample time for your technician to address any issues before the chilly weather arrives. If parts need to be ordered or big repairs need to be made, you won't be worrying about how long you'll be left without heat. This proactive approach ensures a smooth transition into the colder months, with a well-functioning heater ready to keep you warm and cozy.Oil Heat Service Plans

3. Prevent a breakdown

As mentioned above, scheduling your oil heater tune-up in the fall ensures it's working for winter. There's nothing worse than turning on your heater for the first time on a cold day, only to find it's not working. Or, it may work for a little while and then break down when you least expect it. By having a technician clean the heater and look for signs of problems, you won't be caught off guard when it's inconvenient. 

4. Save money

When a technician tunes up your heater, they also make sure that it's running at maximum efficiency. This equates to both increased comfort and money savings. So why let your heater run for weeks or months before getting it to maximum efficiency? Schedule your oil heater tune-up in autumn to ensure it's working well before you start using it, and you can save money all winter long.

5. Take advantage of the "offseason"

While September through November is a popular time for maintenance, it's not as busy when it comes to service calls. That's because homeowners don't need air conditioning anymore, but also aren't using their heaters full-time yet. That's why it's a good time to get your tune-up in and avoid the busier schedule when temperatures drop. This will also reduce the chance that we need to reschedule your appointment due to a heating emergency. Schedule My Heater Tune-Up
