Neglecting Your Heating System Can Be a Costly Mistake

Fall means the leaves are changing colors; you get to wear your favorite sweater and boots, and let’s not forget all the pumpkin-flavored food and drinks that crop up this time of year. Yum!

But guess what… fall also means cooler weather is coming. Are you ready?

The most important preparation you can make is to have your heating system inspected so it is in good working order and ready for cold winter weather.

Your heater has a big job of keeping you snuggly and warm this winter season. Be proactive. Don’t let it die on the coldest day. Let Nichols & Phipps keep your system running so you are warm and toasty all season long!

What is a Heating Inspection?

A heating inspection includes a full range of checks on your heating system. It is designed to find small issues before they can turn into big problems and is a major part of the preventative maintenance you'll have for your heating unit. Scheduling pre-season maintenance and inspection is one of the best ways to assure your heating system will make it through the cold winter months without fail.

Why Do You Need this Inspection?

An inspection can save you money. Not only will you find small problems before they turn into big ones (so that you can avoid those major repair bills), but your inspector may find issues that make your system use more energy and make your utility bills higher. Finally, an inspection or heating tuneup can help you find problems while your system is still under warranty.
