How important is it to have my heating system serviced annually?

A: According to the Environmental Protection Agency, heating equipment that is maintained annually uses 13% less fuel than units that are not. Approximately 55% of American homeowners have their heating equipment serviced. Those that don’t may experience an increase of 10-15% in fuel bills. Maintenance extends the life of your heating equipment by as much as 20-30% which can translate into 5 to 10 years of additional usage for a furnace or boiler. Approximately 75% of all emergency repairs can be avoided with regular maintenance.
