Scheduling Regular Heating Maintenance Can Save You Money

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Would you drive your car knowing you hadn’t changed the oil in a year or two? Probably not. This is the same idea behind scheduling maintenance for your heating system: you want your heating system to run well while you use it, just as you want your car to work well when you drive it. While a maintenance appointment for your heating system entails more than an oil change does for your car, this example demonstrates a very important point: keeping your heating system well-maintained is crucial to its effective operation. But many people don’t schedule regular maintenance for their heating systems, and as a result, run into problems that may have been avoided. Let the NATE-certified technicians at Celco Heating and Air Conditioning help you with your fall heating maintenance in Hamden – call us today.

Ways Maintenance Can Save You Money

There are a few ways that performing maintenance on your heating system can save you money:

Prevent Repairs

During a maintenance appointment, your technician thoroughly inspects your system for problems, including little things like dirty components and worn belts. This inspection also allows the technician to detect any other problems, including ones that could turn into major repairs. Repairing small problems before they can blossom into bigger ones can save you money.

Energy Efficiency

A heating system that hasn’t been maintained can lose up to 5% of its total efficiency each year. This is because a dirty, worn system can’t operate at optimal levels, and will need extra energy to warm your home – energy that you’ll pay for in monthly bills.


One of the keys to extending the life of your system is to have it operating optimally. Why? A system that operates well is one that isn’t forced to achieve your set temperature. Conversely, when a system operates under duress for a long time, due to wear and tear and dirt and dust accumulation, the system can prematurely age, and may force you to replace your heating system earlier.

Properly maintaining your heating system can help you improve your energy efficiency, which can help you save money.

If it’s been more than 12 months since your last heating maintenance appointment in Hamden, call Celco Heating and Air Conditioning today.
