The key to saving energy and money is improving efficiency! And when it comes to improving the energy efficiency of your heating system, one of the best things you can do is schedule an annual system tune-up. You should plan your tune-up service either before winter arrives or right after winter ends.

Tune-ups (sometimes called “system cleanings”) are typically recommended once a year. Not only do they ensure that the system is running properly, but they will ensure that the system is operating at peak efficiency. In fact, a tune-up can help reduce heating oil usage by up to 10%!*
