Melrose Heating Replacement and Repairs

For some people, buying into a home heating maintenance plan is a tough sell. They look at their heating system, and if it’s new or operating properly, they have trouble justifying the spend for money that could easily be going elsewhere.

In many ways, this is faulty logic—understandable, but still problematic. Heating system maintenance is important, and at 128 Plumbing, we know this. We’ve maintained thousands of home heating systems in Massachusetts for decades, and we’ve seen what can  go wrong when maintenance is pushed back or not done properly.

We’ve seen the other side of that coin, too. Our Melrose customers have saved thousands of dollars over the years by relying on us for maintenance, and our maintenance plans help make the “repair or replace” decision much easier when you do have issues with your heating system.

So let’s provide some reasons to go for it with one of our excellent maintenance plans. What follows is a rundown of some of the biggest reasons why heating maintenance is important, and after that we’ll explain why 128 Plumbing is the best company to do it.

Use Less Electricity on Your Furnace

Most people think of heating maintenance in terms of oil or gas systems, but electricity plays a part in the heating equation as well.

While very few people rely exclusively on electric heat due to the expense—it’s commonly considered the most expensive way to heat your home—many of the parts and pieces of your heating system run on electricity. These include heat pumps and fans, but there are other parts that rely on electricity as well.

A heating maintenance program from 128 Plumbing will analyze your electricity costs, and we’ll give you a more precise look at how much of your electric bill is being used to run your heating system.

We’ll also tell you how to optimize those cost numbers. Sometimes replacing or repairing individual components can help lower costs, and we can also tell you when to upgrade your heating system as a whole.

Lower Your Energy Bills

Everyone wants to save money on oil and gas for their heating systems, and there’s one sure way to do it—make your heating system more efficient. An efficient heating system saves you money, and quite possibly a lot of it. It really is that simple.

Why? An in-depth answer to that question would require a deep dive into your specific heating system, but the simpler answer is that your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your home if it’s running efficiently.

You get the same amount of heating—or cooling in the summer, for that matter—in a shorter period of time, which means you’re using less oil or gas, not to mention the aforementioned electricity.

Diagnose and Address Service Problems Early

One of the other ways a heating maintenance program saves you money has to do with diagnosing problems before or as they occur.

Our HVAC techs are trained to spot signs that parts are running less efficiently or starting to fail, and they’re also trained to diagnose the heating system as a whole.

The best part of this is that you get the benefits. Swapping out a failing fan that’s diagnosed in advance, for instance, can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars by preventing a complete breakdown down the road.

Prevent Costly Furnace Replacement

Many people forego a heating maintenance plan because their heating system is older, so they resign themselves to the expensive failures.

They tend to see maintenance as somewhat that has to be started early on to have value, and the decision to forego a plan ends up costing them thousands of dollars.

Here’s the truth: heating system maintenance has value, whenever you decide to do it. It can help you catch up to whatever issues your home system may be having, and that can save you a lot of money on expensive repairs that don’t happen, regardless of how old your system is when you contact us.

Maintain Your Warranty

Warranties for your home heating system are extremely valuable, but you have to do your part to get the benefits and savings they can offer.

Many warranties specify regular inspections along with proof that they’ve been done, and in some cases that can even invalidate the warranty when you do have problems.

With 128 Plumbing, we’ll make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ll give you a comprehensive report of what we saw and did during our inspections, along with specific numbers for parts we’ve replaced.

The company you bought your home heating system from will know that your system has been diligently maintained, which means you’ll come up cost-free when covered repairs occur.

Home Air Quality Improvements

Most people don’t think much about the air quality in their home, unless they happen to have allergies or medical issues that are affected by air quality.

A well-maintained heating system can improve the air quality in your home, and over time you may notice health benefits as well as fewer issues with allergies.  That combination alone makes it more than worthwhile to get a heating maintenance plan from 128 Plumbing.

Family Protection

When it comes to the air quality in your home, carbon monoxide is another issue you need to know about.

It’s one of several contaminants that can enter your home if you don’t do regular maintenance for your heating system, and these contaminants are a top-priority item when our HVAC techs enter your home to run checks.

Get the Most Out of Your HVAC System

If you’re like most people, you’ve spent thousands of dollars on your heating system, and you want it to work well and save you money for as long as possible.

The best way to make this happen is through a heating maintenance plan. Your heating system can operate effectively for years beyond your warranty if you invest in a plan, and every inspection we do for you will help keep money in your pocket.

Help Protect The Environment

With larger, more dangerous storms becoming a fact of life, we all want to minimize the amount of carbon that our HVAC systems are releasing into the atmosphere.

A heating maintenance plan helps make that happen, so that’s another great justification for a fairly minimal investment.

Consistent Cooling

Your AC is obviously a low priority concern heading into winter, but one of the win-win benefits of doing HVAC maintenance is that it also preps you for summer cooling. Your system will get a complete check at least twice a year, and that will keep you comfortable year round.
