Save Yourself Time And Money With A Furnace Tuneup
On the coldest days of the year, it is easy to appreciate your furnace. Do you show your heating system how much it does for you? Furnace upkeep is a good way to take care of your heating equipment and ensure that it will always be there when you need it. Here’s why a furnace tuneup could be the best investment you make for your heating this year.
Why You Need a Furnace Check
If everything in your heating system seems to be working well, you might wonder why you even need a furnace tuneup. While there are many ways you can save money on HVAC services, skimping on the basics will likely cause problems down the road.
You may think your furnace is in great condition, but until you take the cover off and look inside, you cannot be sure. Even if you did, without an expert eye, you might not know what red flags to identify. Yearly upkeep checks for issues on the horizon and sets up your furnace for ideal heating.
What Is Included in Yearly Furnace Maintenance
When scheduling furnace service, you can expect the whole process to be brief. In about an hour or so, your technician can test your entire heating system and provide an assessment of its condition.
Professional furnace upkeep usually includes:
- Furnace filter change for better efficiency
- Testing the thermostat and basic furnace operation
- Inspection of the interior components for signs of wear or damage
- Cleaning dirty parts
- Verifying fuel and electrical connections
Once the list of tasks is complete, our technician will review the results with you. If furnace repair is needed, ask questions, make a decision and schedule the work at your convenience.
How Furnace Maintenance Helps You Save Money
A minor investment in upkeep can yield numerous benefits for your comfort and pocketbook. Keeping your furnace in top condition will help you avoid a surprising shutdown in the dead of winter.
In exchange for maintenance, you get:
- Increased energy efficiency
- Improved heating
- Longer life span for the furnace
- Opportunities to catch potential issues (e.g., a dirty burner or a worn belt) while they are still minor
- Less money spent on repairs
- An in-depth understanding of your furnace’s condition each year
Knowing that your furnace is in good hands and will help support you for another year provides peace of mind that is hard to beat.
When to Schedule Heating Service
As a general rule, it is most practical to arrange for furnace service in the fall, before you need it. However, if you forget to take advantage of it toward the end of the year, almost any time can be beneficial to you. Giving your furnace a reset for the season can always improve your comfort and efficiency.
