The Importance of Furnace Maintenance

Your furnace controls the temperature and moves air throughout your home. Besides regulating comfort levels, your furnace system also filters out dust and allergens. An annual preventative maintenance inspection, by a qualified service technician, keeps your system functioning at peak efficiency. An inspection identifies issues before they go too far, and become unsafe or more costly to repair.

Safety

Safety checks ensure your equipment is running as safely and efficiently as possible. Regular furnace maintenance helps keep you safe by checking for carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. An inspection also checks the unit's safe operating temperature.

Energy Bills

An energy efficient furnace can cause high energy bills when not properly maintained. In warm seasons, your furnace isn’t running, but still accumulates dust and dirt that can damage internal mechanisms. An annual furnace tune-up, before the heating season, identifies and helps prevent future problems resulting in higher energy bills.

Moving Parts

Your furnace has many moving parts including fans, belts, and motors which require regular maintenance to remain in top working condition. Lubrication, tightening, cleaning, and replacing worn parts are all needed, on a regular basis, to keep your furnace running properly and efficiently.

Wear and Tear

Your furnace has safety features built in to regulate the way it turns on and off. If these sensors and other parts don’t function correctly, it could result in the unit shutting down and then powering back up frequently. Over time, this burden on your furnace system could shorten its lifespan or make parts wear out sooner. Frequent cycling also causes higher energy bills.

Warranty

Your manufacturer’s warranty may require regular furnace maintenance. The lack of maintenance may void the warranty. This leaves you with bearing the costs of heating system repairs or replacement that could’ve been avoided with regular maintenance.

Don’t let a lack of furnace maintenance leave you and your family in the cold. The longer a problem goes unattended, the more damage can occur. Avoid unexpected breakdowns, that come along with unforeseen expenses, by having regular furnace maintenance
