Have you been thinking about your heating tune-up? Probably not—it’s technically still summer, after all. Even though winter is a long way off, we’re going to let you in on a little secret: now’s the best time to get your tune-up on the calendar and taken care of! Here are four reasons why.
- Heating emergencies don’t happen in the summer or early fall. When you set up your tune-up for summer or early fall, you will not be in competition for an appointment time with people who are experiencing no-heat emergencies. Even if you don’t need anything beyond a tune-up, you’ll have a harder time securing an appointment when HVAC service providers are handling emergencies all over your Badger State service area, which is often the case at the beginning of the cold season.
- Your tune-up will not wear off. Whether you get a tune-up months before heating season or just a few weeks out, the service that’s done to your oil furnace or oil boiler will stick. So you don’t have to worry that the work done in the summer will no longer have an effect by winter—this is simply not the case. Also, your tune-up might reveal a need for a bigger job or an upgrade, in which case an early appointment will enable you to get that scheduled with plenty of time before the first cold snap.
- Preventive maintenance extends the life of your current system. Proper maintenance is the key to making your oil boiler or oil furnace last. When your Wisconsin HVAC service provider performs your annual tune-up, you’re ensuring that your system is always working to its maximum potential.
- Rebates, rebates, rebates! In Wisconsin, qualifying homeowners can take advantage of multiple rebates, but only while funds last. If you need an upgrade, getting it done sooner rather than later will give you have a better chance of being able to get some cash back. Wisconsin’s rebates include $300 on a new heating oil system, provided that it is higher efficiency than your old system, and $200 on the installation of a new heating oil storage tank. Upgrade both, and you get $500. Learn more about Wisconsin rebates for your oil-heated home.
