Let’s face it: Minnesota winters can be absolutely brutal. In Minneapolis, heating your home is a necessity. That way, you can always cuddle up with a good book inside your warm, comfortable home when you don’t feel like venturing out to face the snow and cold. But what do you do when your heater isn’t working as well as it once was to keep you and your family warm? That’s where Total Comfort comes in. Our goal is to service your heater with the best customer service possible to get it working like new again.
Repair vs. Replacement
If your heater needs repair but you aren’t sure if it might be better to replace it altogether, we can give you our honest, professional opinion in that regard. We would never suggest a replacement if it isn’t in your best interest, but there are a few main reasons why a heater replacement might be the right choice:
- It’s more than 15 years old
- Your utility bills continue to get higher and higher
- You have to constantly get your existing heater repaired
If your heater is between 15-20 years old, it may also cause safety risks to your family that you may not even be aware of. For gas heaters, corroded or faulty heat exchangers can lead to a carbon monoxide leak. Older or poorly maintained heaters can also be fire hazards.
Our financing options can make a new heater even more affordable than you thought, and you will also enjoy lower monthly energy bills, more even heating, and peace of mind with an energy-efficient replacement.
If you’re not sure whether to go with a replacement or just get it repaired, contact us to discuss your specific heating issues with a qualified professional.
Keeping Your Heater Maintained
If you don’t have any major heating issues but still want to make sure your heater is working like it should at peak efficiency, we also offer preventative maintenance services.
If your Minneapolis heating system has a warranty and you’re not worried about any repairs it may need, it’s important to know that some repairs will not be covered under the warranty if routine maintenance is not followed. This works very similarly to car warranties. You must get the oil changed consistently, etc., if the dealer is to honor your warranty. While you probably notice your car more often, keeping your heater maintained properly is just as important!
In addition to keeping your warranty valid, annual maintenance and inspection will keep you from experiencing a breakdown in the dead of winter and having to deal with that inconvenience.
