3 Reasons Why Furnace Maintenance is Vital
“If maintenance doesn’t replace repairs, what’s the point?”
We’ve encountered questions like this more times than we can count. And, hey, it’s a reasonable question. That is why we are happy to provide the answer as many times as is necessary. After all, the more you know, the better equipped you’ll be to make informed choices about the important services your furnace needs!
There are going to be three key reasons why maintenance is vital for your furnace and how it benefits your home comfort in the long run. We have them listed here for you:
- Safety: Your furnace isn’t an inherently dangerous system–we wouldn’t install them if they were! However, a gas-powered furnace that is neglected season after season can easily and quickly become a threat to your comfort and your health. This is because over time a poorly maintained furnace can become prone to gas leaks, caused by loose connections or a cracked heat exchanger. When you schedule yearly maintenance, on the other hand, these safety hazards can be prevented or caught early on, ensuring your safety.
- Efficiency: Any HVAC system that is used for months on end is going to start to lose its energy efficiency over time. In fact, it has been found that without maintenance, your AC and your heater can and will lose a certain percentage of their efficiency each year. With the help of regular annual maintenance, however, you can maintain a better level of energy efficiency, which will reflect in lower energy bills each month.
- Effectiveness: Last but certainly not least, maintenance helps ensure that your furnace can do its job effectively. By addressing things like dirty build-up, loose parts, and other seemingly minor issues, this service is going to ensure that your furnace is able to do the best job possible of heating your home. What’s more, it can even help reduce repair needs!
It is a common misconception that maintenance isn’t a vital service when really it can define how well you can heat your home this winter. When you need to schedule maintenance for your furnace heater, just make sure you reach out to a professional technician to get the job done.
