Does Regular Heating Maintenance Really Save Money?

Whenever someone has to pay money in order to arrange for regular maintenance for a device, whether it’s a car or a gas furnace, they want to know that they are making an actual investment: “will this really save me money in the long run?” When it comes to regular fall maintenance for your home heating system—no matter if it’s a furnace, heat pump or ductless heating system—the answer to that question is an unqualified yes.

Here are some of the ways that you’ll receive a return over the years for keeping up with fall heating maintenance:

  • Better energy efficient performance – Studies have shown that heating systems lose, on average, 5% of their energy efficiency each year they go without maintenance. That’s 5% more you pay each year, so it only takes a few years for you to end up paying a quarter more to run your heater for the exact same performance level. Keep up heating maintenance and you’ll avoid an increase in your energy bills.
  • Few repair costs – You will save on repair costs each year when you maintain your heater… because there will be few to no repair costs incurred at all! In fact, 85% of all repairs a heater may need over its life can be avoided through annual inspections and tune-ups. Most of the repairs will only be necessary during the final two years of the system’s life.
  • Delayed replacement – The most expensive step you can take with a heating system is to replace it. You want to make sure that replacement is a long time in the future, and only when it’s necessary. Maintenance is the best way to see that your heating system enjoys that longest life possible so that you receive the best return in service from it.
