Getting A Heating Tune-Up Before Winter in Big Bear

Bear Valley Plumbing & Heating


With fall officially here, there are a large number of fun things for you and your family to be doing. With so much going on with the quick approach of the holidays and all, it can be easy to lose sight of some of the other important things you need to get done before the onset of winter, one of which is making sure that your heating system is tuned up and ready to go. If there is only one indoor task you look at completing before winter arrives, it should be making sure that your heating system has the service it needs to make it through the winter effectively and efficiently.

It is recommended that you have your heating system tuned up at least once a year to help prevent breakdowns and the like. Having that heating tune up performed in the fall helps to minimize the chance that you will have to go without heat at any point during the coming winter months. There are a number of good reasons to keep your home’s heating system in good repair, but here is a short list of some of the most important reasons to make sure you have it done before the cold weather arrives.

Keep Your System Running Efficiently

Keeping your heating system regularly maintained is a great way to ensure that it keeps operating at peak efficiency when you need it most. When your system isn’t maintained properly, you can have a build-up of dust and dirt inside, and when this builds up too much, it can wind up damaged parts and just make your system run more sluggishly. Keeping your system clean can help keep it running smoothly all throughout the coming months. By keeping your system running efficiently, you can also save yourself a good deal of money on your monthly energy costs, as your system won’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm.

Decrease The Chance Of Breakdowns

One of the last things any homeowner wants to go through in the middle of winter is the stress of having their heating system shutting off completely and refusing to come back on. Making sure that your heating system gets a tune up before winter finally arrives will help to catch any small problems with your system before they have the chance to develop into something more serious. No one wants to wait around in the freezing cold for a technician to come out and repair their system, so make sure that your system is ready to go by the time your first turn it on.

Increase You & Your Family’s Safety

By having your heating system regularly inspected, you can help ensure your safety and that of your family by avoiding deadly carbon monoxide and fuel leaks. With the help of a trained professional, you will be able to catch any leaking areas on your heating system where fuel could be spilling out or gas could be leaking from, like cracks in the combustion chamber, malfunctioning safety devices, or improper airflow, ventilation, or gas pressure that could put your family at risk.

Keep Your Warranty Intact

In the event that there is a major issue with your home’s heating system, you are definitely going to want you warranty to still be valid to help offset the cost of repairing or replacing your heating system in the event that something goes very wrong. Most warranties require some form of yearly maintenance by a professional as part of their terms. Making sure that you get your heating system tuned up every year before the cold weather arrives is a great way to ensure you and your family’s warmth. You also will meet the yearly requirement to keep your warranty intact. Contact your Big Bear Heating Repair professional at Bear Valley Plumbing & Heating today.
