heating service marylandWe have all been taking several hits in our wallets this year. The price to fill your car’s gas tank soared thanks to inflation and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Energy costs are another worry, especially as we approach a winter that is supposed to be colder than normal here in Southern Maryland. Fortunately, Taylor Gas has ways to help you keep your home heating costs under control no matter how bad Old Man Winter treats us.

The sooner you schedule your tune-up, the sooner we can get to your home. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your furnace or boiler is in its best shape no matter when the first cold snap comes!

Benefits of heating system maintenance

There are four key benefits to having a professional service technician tune up your furnace or boiler every year.

Keeping your heating system energy efficient. By keeping your furnace or boiler well-maintained, it will operate at its best possible energy efficiency. This efficiency may save you 10% or more on your heating energy costs When you consider that heating and cooling account for about half of your home’s energy costs, you could end up saving a lot of money!  

Preventing breakdowns. There’s a reason they call it “preventative maintenance.” Four out of five heating system repair jobs could have been avoided if the systems had been regularly and professionally maintained. Our heating system tune-up not only provides the benefits of a smoothly running boiler or furnace but also offers an opportunity for our service technicians to inspect your system closely. By doing so, they can identify potential problems and fix them before they develop into bigger issues that result in an unexpected breakdown or costly repairs.

Protecting your furnace or boiler. Heating systems that get regular, professional maintenance tend to have a longer life expectancy than those that do not. You won’t have to replace your furnace or boiler as soon, giving you a greater return on your investment. 

Maintaining the warranty. Manufacturers typically demand that your heating system be serviced by a professional once a year to maintain its warranty. If you don’t get the tune-ups, could end up on the hook for large repair expenses later because your warranty will have been invalidated.
