Almost everything great in life needs regular maintenance in order to last, your furnace included. This cold season in Los Banos, CA, consider taking the time to schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment. In this article, we discuss four reasons it’s well worth the investment to get your furnace maintained.
All furnaces use some kind of fuel to heat your home, whether it’s natural gas, or oil. If you have a damaged furnace, however, these fuel sources may release carbon monoxide into your home; it’s an odorless and tasteless gas that can easily cause major health issues. With regular tune-ups, though, you’ll catch this problem early before it can ever become an issue.
Less Expensive Runtime
A heating system that has been properly maintained and cleaned runs up to 20% more efficiently than one that hasn’t. Proper airflow allows your system to work less hard, resulting in lower utility bills. It also creates less wear on your furnace, lengthening its lifespan.
Reduce Failures and Repairs
No one wants their furnace to break down in the middle of the night or over a holiday weekend. A routine maintenance appointment catches small issues that have the tendency to morph into much bigger issues and furnace failures, so you don’t run into the problem of a frigid house one winter morning. The sooner an issue is caught, the sooner it can get fixed and the cheaper it will be to do so.
Keeps Warranty in Check
A fall maintenance appointment will also keep your warranty in place, since many require routine inspections be performed once yearly. Keeping this warranty valid means paying less for repairs and replacement parts, making it a smart financial move on your part.
