Get your Furnace Tune-Up Before Winter

Fall is a time of change. The leaves change from green to red. The weather changes from hot and humid to cool and windy. Fall is also the time when your family turns the AC off. It may start to get cold at night during the fall. Make sure that your furnace is ready with a furnace maintenance this fall.

Benefits of Preventative Furnace Maintenance

There are countless benefits to getting your furnace serviced before winter kicks in including:

  • Reducing the risk of fire in your home
  • Boosting the energy efficiency of your home
  • Meeting your warranty
  • Prolonging the life of your furnace

Reduce the risk of fire

One of the most important reasons to get your furnace inspected and serviced regularly is to prevent the risk of fire. As with any electrical appliance, your home, and your family is at risk of an electrical fire if something is amiss.

On top of the risk of fire, a cracked heat exchanger may leak deadly carbon monoxide into your home. Don’t dance with this silent killer, get your furnace inspected regularly to detect problems with your furnace early and avoid a worst-case scenario.

Boosting your home energy efficiency

Regular maintenance can boost the efficiency of your furnace. If your furnace has low air pressure, it could be working harder than it should to keep your home warm. This will take a toll on your furnace’s efficiency and cost you money.

A clean and well-tuned machine will always perform better. Save yourself time and money by getting your furnace serviced every fall.

Meeting your warranty requirements

Many manufacturer’s warranties require regular maintenance by a professional HVAC technician to meet your warranty requirements. Schedule annual tune-ups to avoid losing your warranty coverage.

Meeting your warranty requirements will benefit you in the long-run. Regular maintenance will spot problems early on, repair small problems before they become big problems, and provide you notice when your furnace is about to kick the bucket.  

Prolong the life of your furnace

Furnaces have an average life expectancy of around 15 years. A furnace with regular tune-ups and maintenance may be running strong after 20 years though. Extending the life of your furnace will save you valuable money. It will also give you longer to pay-off your machine or save to purchase a newer, more efficient unit down the road.
