We see it every fall: The first October cold snap hits, and our phone rings off the hook with calls requesting heating repairs, after months of the equipment sitting quietly, unattended in the basement.
The problem is there are only so many expert oil-fired heating system technicians available – which means someone will have to wait for their heating system fix.
It’s a pretty common problem: most people don’t give their furnace or boiler much thought until the weather turns in earnest. But by waiting until the last minute, you may run into a situation where you find your equipment needs major repairs—or even replacement – in a very tight time frame.
Of course the best way to avoid this problem is to prevent heating repairs in the first place by getting professional annual heating maintenance every year. If you haven’t scheduled heating service yet, we strongly recommend that you do it before you really need your furnace or boiler.
In the meantime, if you know you need a heating repair, it’s best to take care of it before the first cold snap – and that time is now. If you spot any of these heating system warning signs, contact us as soon as possible so we can take care of the problem before temperatures take their annual plunge here in Rhode Island:
