The idea of your furnace not working during the cold season is not amusing to say the very least. Yet, by not scheduling a furnace maintenance in fall, you risk that exact fate. The fact is, your furnace needs regular maintenance to keep it working right.
Here are the benefits of scheduling your furnace maintenance in fall.
Reduced Risk of a Breakdown
The reality is, at one point in time all mechanical devices will be subject to wear and tear. That includes your furnace. Nonetheless, you can minimize the attrition rate through scheduling a tune-up of your system.
When you schedule a furnace tune-up with us this fall, our expert tech will ensure that your system is working all through the cold season. We will also address all the potential problems before they escalate into big issues.
Having routine furnace tune-ups will increase the efficiency of your unit by 25% and more. An efficient system is energy efficient as well as cost-effective.
The safety of your home is of paramount importance, and we understand this all too well. As such, your furnace should be checked every year to ensure that it operates safely.
A primary concern: a heat exchanger that’s cracked can release carbon monoxide. This odorless gas is deadly. Should you suspect that your heat exchanger has malfunctioned, you need to get in touch with the fire department immediately and then call us for an emergency furnace service.
If you neglected to take your car for service, how long do think it would last? Similarly, not having your furnace checked by a professional is a very bad idea. In fact, having your system regularly maintained will help it run better and last longer. By ensuring that your furnace is maintained every fall, you can prolong the lifespan of your system by 30 to 50%. This is one way we can help you save money.
Lower Energy Bills
If your furnace is not properly and regularly maintained, it will no doubt use up more energy. The result will be higher energy bills. Getting a tech from Air Plus Heating & Cooling to inspect your furnace will help you lower your energy bills. And this is how.
As your furnace accumulates dust and its parts start to wear, it’ll require a lot of energy to heat up your home. As it consumes more energy and puts in more work to heat your living spaces, the parts wear out much faster. The vicious cycle goes on and on.
By having an expert inspect your unit as part of a furnace tune-up, you are sure that your system will be ready to operate efficiently throughout the cold season.
