3 Reasons to Schedule a Furnace Check Up Before it Gets Cold

There’s no denying that winter time brings some pretty cold temperatures. And even though winter is still a long ways off, the official start of fall is in just a few days, which means it’s time to start thinking about furnace maintenance. The best time to schedule this service is well before you will need your heating system on a regular basis, making now the perfect time to do so.

Scheduling furnace maintenance ahead of time means that you’ll have a peace of mind when temperatures do begin to decline further and you need your heating system to be in the best shape possible. Read on to learn 3 reasons you should schedule furnace maintenance before the cold weather hits.

Prevent Safety Problems

Today’s heating systems are built with technology that makes them much safer than those of the past. That does not mean they are immune to problems though. Albeit rare these days—particularly if your system is professionally installed—gas leaks and carbon monoxide leaks are possible. One of our expertly trained technicians will check to ensure that your furnace is operating as safely as it should during your maintenance appointment.

Improve System Efficiency

When you have your furnace checked on, our highly trained and experienced technicians will perform any needed adjustments to the components within the system. Over time, various components of your furnace begin to wear down. We might find loose screws or other seemingly minor issues. Over the years though, these add up to significant damage and reduce the efficiency of your system.

Decrease the Likelihood of System Shutdown

The last thing you want to do is be stuck in the middle of winter with a malfunctioning heating system, or worse, a heating system that doesn’t turn on at all. Maintenance reveals whatever issues your heating system is facing so you can get them resolved as quickly as possible, reducing the chance of a premature system shutdown.
