Tuning Up

The daffodils are out, the tulips are budding, and the lawn is turning green. We must finally be in the true throes of spring. And you know what that means: time to get your heating system tuned up and ready for next winter!

You may be tempted to throw the snow shovel at us, but think about this: the average New England home heating system ran for more than 1,000 hours during our recent heating season. If you ran that long, you’d need a tune-up too!
(Think of the annual tune-up as a “spa day” for your heating system.)

Here’s why we urge homeowners to act now for a spring tune-up:

  • Efficiency. At Dead River Company, we’re eager for our customers to save fuel and money. Even if you’ve turned off your central heat, it’s likely your boiler is still heating your hot water. Maximize your efficiency by having us clean the inside of your unit for maximum heat transfer. Why wait until fall to benefit from maximized efficiency? Increased efficiency can save up to 5% annually on your fuel bill.
  • Preparedness. A tune-up is preventative maintenance to help you prepare for a worry free year. Our licensed technicians will inspect your system for wear, change filters, and replace the pump strainer and nozzle. A tune-up now can save you a service call later. And that will save you worry—and money.
  • Convenience. Getting your annual tune-up in the spring keeps you out of the fall rush and off a waiting list. Check this off your list now and get it out of the way!

Dead River Company can have your heating system tuned up in no time. It’s as easy as filling out this online Request for Service form.

For a little more than the cost of a single tune-up you can opt into a service plan that’s right for you. All our service plans include an annual tune-up and offer the most value for your home heating dollars.

Don’t wait until fall. Give us a call today and we’ll deliver peace of mind for the year ahead.
