To keep your heater working as well as possible through the coming winter, it’s important to schedule heating maintenance. This will do more than just catch any existing problems before they cause your heater to shut down on a cold winter night. It will improve the efficiency of your heating system so your utility costs don’t increase, ensure that there are no safety hazards such as fuel leaks or carbon monoxide emissions, and increase the life expectancy of your heater so it will last as long as possible before you need to worry about replacing it.
