Benefits Of Furnace Maintenance

Avoid Surprise Furnace Repairs

No homeowner wants their furnace to break down on the coldest day of the year. To prevent premature furnace replacement, we recommend scheduling routine maintenance. A HVAC technician will be able to inspect for damage so you aren’t surprised by an expensive repair in the middle of winter. Give yourself some peace of mind this winter by scheduling regular furnace cleaning and maintenance.

Save Money

Some warranties require that you have your heating furnace serviced annually. If this is the case, you’ll want to keep up on furnace maintenance. In our experience, the most expensive repairs are usually for home furnaces that haven’t been serviced in years. During a furnace service visit, a technician has the chance to repair small damage before it grows into a more expensive heating repair.

Prevent Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that causes 500 deaths and 15,000 trips to the ER each year. To protect your family from carbon monoxide leaks, you’ll want to schedule furnace maintenance this year. While small levels of carbon monoxide exit the exhaust, there shouldn’t be any traces of the gas inside your home. A HVAC technician will be able to inspect the venting, gassing, and electrical mechanisms to make sure they work properly.

Improve Energy Efficiency

A HVAC technician will be able to help your forced air furnace run more efficiently this winter. For example, changing a dirty furnace filter reduces how much energy your furnace uses to produce heat, which saves you money in the long run.

A dirty filter forces your furnace to work harder to produce the same amount of heat. Not only does this reduce your home’s energy efficiency, but it also decreases the usable life of your furnace. Eventually, your furnace will need to be prematurely replaced.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Depending on the type of air filter your house furnace uses, you’ll want to make sure you replace the filter every 3 months. While a technician can replace the filter for you during your annual furnace tune up, you’ll want to make sure your filter doesn’t get clogged in between visits.

If you or a family member has allergies, you’ll especially want to make sure the furnace filter is changed on a regular basis. Furnace filters are responsible for trapping allergens such as dust, dirt, pollen, and pet hair.
