Winter Is Here – Is Your Heating System up for the Challenge?

Winter has officially arrived here in Rhode Island – is your furnace or boiler up to the task of keeping your family safe and warm?

You may think that because your heating system has worked well so far this heating season that you’re in the clear for the duration. But sometimes equipment that works fine at a trot won’t do quite so well at full sprint – say, when the temperature drops 30 degrees in a 24-hour period and stays that way for a couple of weeks (that happened several times last winter, if you recall).

The best way to keep your heating oil-fired equipment running reliably all season long? Sign up for annual preventative maintenance.

With regular service, your technician will spot the warning signs of a problem early, when a heating system repair is easier and less costly for you. As a bonus, routine maintenance will help your equipment to run more efficiently, which means lower energy bills for you this winter (a tune-up will usually pay for itself in energy savings over the course of a season).

The bottom line: Four out of five no-heat repairs are preventable with routine care, which makes annual maintenance (included in our high value Heating Oil Service Plans) a no-brainer investment. If you want peace of mind this heating season, contact us for routine heating system maintenance today so we can walk you through your Service Plan options.
