heating-furnace-repair-technicianIf you’ve been through at least one spring in Ohio, you know that the season is never a guarantee the cold weather will vanish for good.

However, just because December has arrived doesn’t mean you missed the window to schedule annual maintenance for your heating system. Your furnace, boiler, or other heater hasn’t put in the main portion of its job yet, and it needs to have a full inspection and tune-up from professionals before then. Although it’s simpler to have the job done in early fall, it’s much better to have it done a bit later than to skip it altogether.
