Spring Ahead of Winter Worry

- 10:37 am - March 22nd, 2017

123rf_15016795_ml.pngWe are now OFFICIALLY into the long-awaited spring season. However, if you thought it was time to prepare your heating system for its summer slumber, you might want to hold off just a bit longer. It was Mark Twain who said, “In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” While that might be an exaggeration, there’s no denying that spring in New York is indeed unpredictable.

Before you put your heating system out of your mind, consider this: now is the perfect time to evaluate your system’s performance … especially if your system struggled through the cold season with frequent equipment failures, high fuel consumption, or just unreliable or inadequate heat. After all, you’re going to need it again next winter! 

Many homeowners arrange for annual maintenance in the fall, just before the cold weather arrives. While having an annual tune-up performed at any time during the year is better than skipping it altogether, there’s a better time to schedule service: NOW! Here are a few reason why: 

Set Up Your Worry-Free Fall

You’ve got enough to worry about as you prepare for the winter. And that’s before you even take into account the all-consuming hustle and bustle of the holiday season. By getting your heating system ready to roll in the spring, you can take comfort in knowing that a major part of your winterizing to-do list is already checked off.

Scheduling Flexibility

Your full-service Bioheat® fuel provider works hard to ensure that every service appointment and fuel delivery is as convenient as possible for you. However, every year when the weather cools down, their technicians are at their busiest. Having your tune-up performed during the offseason gives the dealer much more flexibility, so your appointment can be arranged around your busy schedule.

More Time to Plan

If your system requires a repair or part replacement that’s not covered under your service plan, you can schedule the service and budget it in the most sensible way for your family. You’ll have months to plan instead of having to make emergency repairs on the coldest day of the year. Or, if your equipment is ready for an overhaul, there will be time to upgrade without the worry of not being able to use your system when you need it most.

Plus, with the popular Upgrade & Save – New York City Energy Efficiency and Safety Rebate Program you can get great savings on a high-efficiency furnace or boiler. We’ll have more on that in our next blog. Stay tuned! (And that goes for your system, too!)
