Whether we want to admit it or not, winter is right around the corner. Before long, temperatures will plummet and we will turn to our furnaces to keep our home warm and cozy. With regular furnace tune-ups and maintenance, you can rest assured that your family won’t get left in the cold. Here are three reasons why you need to schedule a furnace tune-up today.
1. Regular Maintenance Increases the Life Span of Your Furnace and Can Prevent Costly Repairs
Because of the wide range of inspection that occurs during a tune-up, technicians can make minor adjustments such as lubricating moving parts, inspecting and cleaning condensate drains, and testing the unit’s starting capabilities. These minor adjustments can prevent your furnace’s parts from deteriorating as quickly, which in return, prolongs the life span of your furnace.
With regular maintenance, technicians can also detect small problems before they turn into larger, more expensive repairs. By keeping your furnace running at its peak performance, unexpected breakdowns or problems are less likely.
2. Regular Maintenance Will Keep Your Warranty Intact
Many manufactures require you to schedule regular maintenance and to keep proper records of such services, in order for the warranty to remain valid. Manufacturers realize how important regular furnace tune-ups are to the performance and longevity of your system.
3. Regular Maintenance and Inspections can Help Avoid Potential Safety Hazards
For many, safety is the number one priority when it comes to our families and homes. Tune-ups can detect carbon monoxide leaks and potential fire hazards. With proper maintenance, you can heat your home without worrying about potential safety risks.
Once an inspection is complete, your furnace will perform more efficiently, keeping your home comfortable all winter.
