If your furnace goes out when the temperatures are mild outside, it isn’t a life-threatening problem. All that changes as the temperatures continue to fall below freezing.
To ensure your furnace is in the best possible shape each year, it’s important to have a proper maintenance schedule and have repairs performed as quickly as needed. Not only does proper maintenance protect you from losing heat to your home at the most inopportune times, it also helps keep your heating equipment in good working condition for as long as possible.
Sounds good, right? When was the last time you called in a professional for regular maintenance for your furnace?
Tune ups help your furnace last longer
Problems build up over time. If a part is worn or isn’t working properly, the rest of the system has to overcompensate for the malfunction. That builds, and eventually causes other parts to wear out before their time as well. The best way to ensure a long life for your furnace is to ensure it’s working at its optimal level every season.
Regular maintenance means less chance of it going down in severe weather
When you call in a professional at the beginning of the season, they take care of any small problems that may have turned into larger ones as the equipment operates. This ensures that your equipment will never work too hard producing heat on demand, and it will take less energy to operate and keep your home warm.
Regular service catches problems before they escalate
How much does it cost to repair a simple problem - a new belt, a new filter? How much does it cost to replace an entire heating system? Handling small problems as they arise is always easier and cheaper than waiting until they turn into larger problems. Catching problems early will save you the shock of having a huge bill at the most inopportune time.
