Most homeowners know that an annual furnace tune-up is recommended, but very few people know why.
If you haven’t heeded these suggestions, it’s about time you find out why these are so essential and absolutely necessary. If you wait until it’s too late, it may cause irreversible damage to your furnace.
We know how busy this season can be with all the Holiday excitement, so here are THREE quick tips on why you should add a tune-up to your winter to-do list.
1. Reduce Your Energy Bill by Up to 30%
Your furnace alone can make up about 50% of your energy bill, and the colder it gets, the more expensive that can be. But don’t worry, there’s a key to regulating this – furnace maintenance.
A well-tuned furnace is more efficient & uses less energy. In fact, regular maintenance can save you as much as 30% on your monthly bill alone. Add in a programmable thermostat, and you’re well on your way to making this winter a much more affordable one.
Even the simplest thing like changing filters can alter your savings. Clean furnace filters also help to ensure proper airflow, which reduces the need for frequent repairs that occur when the furnace is strained.
Bonus: A well-maintained furnace will last you much longer, which means you’ll get the most out of your investment.
2. Detect Dangers Like Gas and Carbon Monoxide Leaks
Furnaces produce heat through burning fuel and it is important to ensure that the combustion process is efficient. Our certified technicians can help keep you and your family safe!
An unchecked furnace runs the risk of carbon monoxide leaks. These are harder to detect to the blind eye because the gas is colorless and odorless. High carbon monoxide levels can cause nausea, headaches, and in some cases, death. Gas leaks are also a huge risk you take when neglecting your furnace.
Having annual furnace maintenance will prevent potential safety risks, and give you peace of mind that your furnace is working properly and up to code.
3. Stay Warm, Safe and Happy During the Winter
When you get an annual furnace tune up before winter begins, you can find out if the furnace will serve you efficiently throughout the entire season. The last thing you want is to be awoken by the freezing cold in the middle of the night because the furnace broke down.
Knowing the condition of your furnace before the cold weather kicks in will save you from the hassle. For example, if all the maintenance in the world can’t save your furnace, you’ll have plenty of heads up to repair or replace it before it’s too late.
