Heating Checks & Tune Up Services

It’s important that your home heater work properly when you need it. While you can certainly depend on a newer furnace or heating system for the first few years of its life, the older your system gets, the more likely you are to encounter problems and need repair work done.

Keeping up with a regular furnace maintenance schedule is the best way to ensure it keeps working seamlessly. Even a brand new system can benefit from an annual maintenance check-up. These appointments don’t take much time or cost much money, but they will give you peace of mind that your system will keep working well through the cold season and for years to come.

Regular Maintenance Ensures Safety

If something goes wrong, however, many systems can cause a buildup of carbon monoxide. This is a dangerous situation for you and your family, and you should do everything you can to protect yourself from this eventuality. Making sure all carbon monoxide detectors in your home are functioning properly is a good step. You can greatly decrease the likelihood of this becoming a problem by having your home’s system properly inspected every year. Our expert HVAC technicians can educate you about carbon monoxide buildup and offer preventative maintenance services to keep these types of issues from occurring in the first place.

A malfunctioning HVAC system can also be a serious fire risk. If you’re balking at the price of having regular heater maintenance performed on your home’s system, just think about what it would cost you if your home caught fire. In this context, regular maintenance is well worth the minimal annual cost.

Furnace Maintenance Promotes System Efficiency

On the other hand, a system that hasn’t received that little bit of extra attention will gradually decline in performance each year. This dip in performance may not be immediately evident, but over time, you will find that your heating bills are steadily climbing.

Improved System Reliability

An inefficient system also impacts the overall lifespan of your equipment. When a system lacks efficiency, it has to work harder and more frequently to keep your home at the right temperature. This pressure causes increased wear and tear on the entire system, causing parts to wear out more quickly. Depreciation not only leads to increased energy costs but also make it necessary for you to pay for heating repairs more frequently as your system ages.
