Does Maintenance Really Protect Your Furnace?

In recent weeks, we’ve been discussing the importance of heating system maintenance. Even though our temperatures have stayed generally mild as of recently, it’s only a matter of time before our weather turns cooler, and when winter hits full force, you’ll be grateful for a fully functioning furnace.

Of course, the only way to ensure its reliability and functionality is by scheduling routine maintenance, and now is the best time to seek this service out. This means you won’t have to worry about it when temperatures reach a point that you have to use your heater on a regular basis. Keep reading to learn how furnace maintenance helps protect your valuable heating system.

Guards against Safety Issues

Gas furnaces are highly efficient and effective for homeowners throughout the communities we serve. However—albeit rare with today’s modern heating systems—furnaces do pose the risk of gas leaks or carbon monoxide leaks. During maintenance, one of our expertly trained professional technicians will check to ensure that your furnace is operating as safely as it should be before the heating season begins.

Improve System Efficiency

When you have your furnace tuned-up, our professionals will perform any needed adjustments to the components within the heating system. Over the years, various parts of your furnace wear down. You may also suffer from loose screws or other seemingly minor issues, which in time can have a significant negative effect on how your heater works. As a result, your heater won’t work as effectively as it should, resulting in higher monthly energy bills.

Improve Lifespan

When something is wrong with your furnace, your tune-up appointment is the most likely time that it will be found. By taking care of these repair needs quickly, you reduce the chance of a sudden system breakdown right when you need your furnace the most.
