It’s getting close to that time of the year when Massachusetts homeowners let their heating systems rest after a few months of battling it out with another cold winter. The warmer weather is a signal to North Shore Fuel customers to start thinking about their heating systems’ preventative maintenance!

 

Preventative maintenance is important for your heating system and for your comfort – and this is why:

Energy Savings

 

Dirty and neglected heating systems typically have to work harder than well-maintained heating systems, this results in the equipment using more energy and hiking up the costs to heat your home.

 

Increased Comfort

 

Preventing system malfunctions, leaky ductwork and inhibited airflow are just a few ways that preventative maintenance can help improve the comfort coverage of the heating equipment.

 

Better Air Quality

 

Forced-air systems that rely on ductwork should be regularly cleaned in order to prevent the circulation of contaminants including pet dander, mold, mildew, dust and other particulates that could trigger allergy flare-ups and asthma attacks.

 

Longer Equipment Life

 

Keeping your heating equipment clean, lubricated and in good repair means there is less wear and tear on the equipment, which helps it remain in service for much longer than equipment that isn’t well maintained.
