We all know that nothing lasts forever. But when it comes to home systems like your boiler or furnace, there are ways of extending their life. Regular wear and tear, plus the buildup of dirt, dust, and other matter can adversely affect their performance — making them work harder and leading to higher utility bills as a result.
Savvy homeowners in Westchester and Putnam know that annual tune-ups of their heating systems by Robison professionals is the way to go. Regular tune-ups will help prevent breakdowns and the need for major repairs and will improve your system’s overall efficiency.
A yearly comprehensive, professional boiler or furnace tune-up and inspection is essential for any age of heating system — older models as well as new. The best time to schedule your tune-up is between April and August every year. This gives you plenty of time to address any potential problems before the onset of fall and winter, and explore your options should a new boiler or furnace be needed. If you haven’t already done so, now’s the time to schedule your appointment!
