The Maynard Man Says: Stay Safe! Schedule Your Heating Maintenance Appointment Today

The Maynard Man here! Nighttime temperatures have already begun to drop a bit and with the official start of fall here, it’s time for homeowners to turn their attention from their cooling efforts to getting their heaters prepped for winter.

What does this mean? It means ensuring that your heater is well maintained! Why does this matter? Because of your safety. This is especially true with a gas-powered heater. Over the years, your heater accumulates wear and tear, and without routine maintenance this means the heat exchangers can accumulate damage, leaving you with cracked components.

A cracked heat exchanger will allow dangerous gasses—namely, carbon monoxide—to leak out and into your living space. This is a hazardous and harmful substance that can make homeowners very ill and can even be fatal in large amounts. Safety isn’t the only reason you should invest in annual heating maintenance, though! Read on to learn all the ways you’ll benefit.
