Most people don’t give much thought to their heating system during the summer months. After all, with temperatures and humidity soaring, turning up the heat is the last thing you’d be interested in doing. But as heating service professionals explain, summer is the ideal time to schedule a maintenance inspection and tuneup for your home heating system.
Why should you schedule a maintenance inspection during the summer? It comes down to availability. During the winter months, heating service companies get inundated with requests for tuneup and repair visits. While professionals will still do everything in their power to set up convenient appointments, the wait time tends to be longer during the winter due to increased demand.

More importantly, you don’t want to find out that something is wrong with your heating system when you try to turn it on after a surprise cold front comes through. A tuneup and inspection during the summer will ensure that any needed repairs have been taken care of in advance so that your system will work when cold weather arrives. An inspection can also check that your heating system works at an optimal level, ensuring debris doesn’t get in the way of efficiency.
