Choosing the right service plan to keep your home oil heating system in top shape
Anyone who’s lived in the MA and RI areas is no stranger to winter. Frigid temperatures, driving snow and inches of ice are all common and can strike any time from October to May. When you know that much cold is coming, it’s smart to have a maintenance plan in place for your home heating system.
Benefits of a Home Heating Oil Maintenance Plan
When you sign up for a maintenance plan, your furnace and other heating equipment will be regularly cleaned and inspected. This checkup catches potential problems before they become disastrous and ensures that the components are never clogged with dirt or debris. Your system will last longer as a result and maintain most of its original efficiency. Not only will your home stay warmer throughout the winter, but the unit will also last longer, use less fuel and require fewer repairs so you save money in the long run.
Perhaps most important of all when you live in a climate with harsh winters is the benefit of emergency service. Even a well-maintained oil heater will have problems now and then, and a maintenance plan ensures that someone will always be there to fix it so you’re never left out in the cold.
