While spring is not too far away, we all know from experience that it’s way too soon to pack away our winter yet. No matter what the calendar says, we’ve seen plenty of chilly springs here in the Hudson Valley.
So, if it’s been a while since you’ve had your heating oil boiler or furnace checked by a technician, start thinking about arranging for spring maintenance service.
Regular equipment maintenance is a vital money-saving investment for heating systems– not just because it can keep your equipment running safely and at peak efficiency, but also because four out of five heating system breakdowns are preventable if you follow the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations.
A tune-up service also allows your heating oil technician to spot minor issues before they become big problems (worn parts, a burner that needs adjustment, etc.)
If you’ve noticed any problems with your system this winter, please don’t ignore it. These are most likely “red flags” alerting you to the need for professional service.
Here are just a few examples.
Here are a few sounds and the possible cause. Note: a correct diagnosis can only be made with an onsite visit by our service technician.
If you are experiencing problems or have questions about reducing your heating costs or simply using energy around your home in smarter ways, please get in touch with your local Hudson Valley Bioheat® fuel company and they’ll be glad to help.
