Shocked girl close lips with palms, speak no evil conceptIt may very well be, but the good news is, it’s never too late for a heating maintenance appointment! Sure, we do recommend that homeowners have this service done in the fall, before you need your heater on a daily basis. However, that matters less than how often you have your heater tuned-up.

The fact of the matter is, the biggest and typically costliest of heating repair needs can almost always be prevented, just by keeping up on your annual (or biannual) maintenance appointments!
