Now that we are into October, the chilly weather will be here before you know it and you will be relying on your furnace to keep your home warm. Of course, this requires that your furnace is in good condition. But problems left over from last year, aging while your furnace sat unused all summer, and other challenges may mean that your furnace is less than prepared for the wintertime.
Should You Schedule Furnace Maintenance?
All of the components of your furnace system, from your thermostat to your ductwork to the furnace itself, will wear and age over time. This means that your furnace has to work harder to produce the same heating results as it did initially. It could also mean that your furnace might stop working completely.
Furnace maintenance is the leading way to prevent these challenges. During a visit, your technician will perform an inspection to look for any early signs of problems. They will also tune up different components and replace those that may have become too worn to function properly.
This maintenance results in several advantages for homeowners, such as:
- Decreased Risk of Breakdown – Because a technician can spot problems earlier, often before they become evident to homeowners, they can make repairs before issues become extreme and costly.
- More Energy Efficient – A furnace tune up can keep your furnace running more efficiently and consuming less energy for lower energy bills throughout the winter.
- Longer Furnace Lifespan – A furnace that receives annual maintenance throughout its lifetime will often last longer than one that is not serviced so that you can go longer in between furnace replacements.
- Better Indoor Air Quality – When your furnace works properly, it can keep you more comfortably warm. Furnace maintenance can also keep debris from getting into your home.
