The weather in Washington is still chilly enough that we’ll need to use or heaters for another few weeks before we can expect the spring thaw. But that warmer weather will be here sooner than we think.  If your heater has repair needs, you may feel tempted to let them go and wait until you need your heater again in the fall to deal with them.We understand the temptation to procrastinate on heating repairs at the end of the season. However, it can make a major difference in your heating to have any necessary repairs done now, when your heater is still running, before you shut it down for the warmer season.Repairs don’t have to be a hassle: you can contact Black Hills, Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning for professional heating repair service. We’ve served the South Puget Sound area with HVAC service since 1993.Reasons you need to have heating repair taken care of now:Avoid an unpleasant surprise in fall: if you’re tempted to let repairs go now for the sake of convenience, it could end up as a huge inconvenience later when you turn your heater on for the cold season for the first time… and it doesn’t work. The last time you want a heater to fail is when you really need it.Keep repair costs down: The longer a malfunction repair goes without attention, the more likely that it will become a higher-cost repair in the future. IF your heater comes on in the fall and starts to fail right away, it will probably cost more to repair it than if you attended to it at the end of the season.Ease of Scheduling: During the first burst of cold weather in the late fall, many people will need repairs for their heaters, and this will keep HVAC technicians extremely busy. You’ll have a harder time finding convenient scheduling for your repairs and may need to wait longer for service that will restore your regular level of heat.Make sure you have your maintenance taken careIf your heater currently appears to have no repair needs, you can always find out for sure with an inspection from a maintenance technician. If you did not have a maintenance check during the fall, it is especially important that you schedule it now: your HVAC repair specialists will locate malfunctions or impending problems and fix them.Black Hills, Inc. is ready to handle the heating repair you need for peace of mind later in the year.
