South Carolina does not have the most severe winter weather in the country. Not by a long shot. Why, then, should you be concerned with having your heater tuned up before winter really gets underway? Because without a precision tune up in Columbia, SC, you’ll soon realize that even relatively mild winters can be miserable without a well-functioning heater!
Our technicians are some of the finest in the industry, and one of our goals is ensuring that your heater is there for you when you need it most. That is why we encourage you to schedule a precision tune-up before putting your heater back into the regular rotation. Better yet, take advantage of our preventative maintenance agreement, and reap extended benefits.
Yes, Tune-Ups Are That Important!
When you run your heater, you put wear and tear on that system. Then it sits around for our long heating season, unused. Then, you just start it up again months later, without addressing the strain of the previous season. That is a recipe for disaster.
The benefits of routine heating tune-ups cannot be overstated. A well-maintained heater will function more efficiently, more reliably, and more effectively than a poorly maintained system ever can. Give us a call, and let us get your heater into great condition for the coming cold.
During a precision tune-up, we will complete the following tasks to help your heater succeed. It is an involved process, so we cannot list every step here. Just know that when we do the job, the job is done thoroughly!
