If you put off getting your home’s furnace or boiler its annual tune-up last summer or fall because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you are not alone. However, now is the time to stop putting it off. Avoiding your heating system tune-up this winter can lead to problems down the road (we’ll get to those in a minute).
It’s quick and easy to request a tune-up. Just contact us online or call us at 207-352-7800 during regular business hours, and we’ll get you on the schedule.
Because so many of our customers here in southern Maine put off getting their equipment serviced last year, there may be some minor delays when it comes to scheduling, as we are also working around no-heat emergency service this time of year. Rest assured that we’ll get to you as soon as possible! Furthermore, you can trust that PitStop Fuels is dedicated to safety. Our COVID-safe, contactless service includes our mandatory requirement for all Drivers, Technicians and Salesmen to wear personal protective equipment whenever entering a customer’s home.
If you’re considering waiting until spring—or even next spring—to get your heating system tuned up, you may not want to do that. Those few months—or an added year—could make a big difference for your home comfort and your heating system itself.
A tune-up gives you many benefits and putting it off can cause big headaches (and big bills) for you.
Prevent breakdowns. Four out of five equipment breakdowns could have been prevented with regular, professional maintenance. Our service technicians give your heating system a thorough inspection while doing the routine cleaning and service at which time they can spot and fix problems before they become worse and cause a breakdown—which can be an untimely, expensive repair.
Cut your energy costs. A tune-up pays you back almost immediately. Your boiler or furnace will operate once more at its peak efficiency, meaning you’ll be spending the least amount of money possible on your heating costs—a major benefit in the midst of a frigid winter like we’re in the middle of now!
Protect the warranty. Many warranties for furnaces and boilers require annual maintenance done by a professional service technician to keep the warranty in effect. If you put off a tune-up, the warranty could be voided, leaving you holding the bag for repair bills in the future.
