If we’ve caught your interest, good. There’s a lot more we need to say about furnace maintenance.
What Is Maintenance?
Maintenance is when a trained professional comes to your home and provides an inspection and minor adjustments to your system. This allows us to do a few things.
- Pinpoint any approaching repair needs. Inspections are important because they allow a professional to look at each and every component of your heater. We can see what pieces are about to break and which parts are in good condition. This allows us to thoroughly document whether or not your system is going to need to be repaired down the line. Some repairs can even be made on the spot with no additional cost!
- Maximize efficiency levels. Not every minor adjustment is about repairing your heater, some are about minimizing the amount of energy or fuel that’s consumed by the system. In the case of a furnace, it keeps the system running without consuming too much gas. This lowers your month-to-month heating bill and will keep your budget intact.
- Discuss the condition of your system. After the system is inspected, one of our professionals could start a dialogue with you to figure out the overall condition of your system. Is it working how you want it to? Do you pay too much in bills? Once we’ve discovered some pain points, we can schedule repairs or even a system replacement if it’s in rough shape.
For homeowners that would like to avoid the majority of their furnace problems going forward (up to 85% of all repairs), then maintenance is an essential service. It’s not as optional as you might think!
Why Maintenance Is Important
You might be looking at the last section of this blog post thinking that maintenance is just an “added perk” of owning a furnace. But the truth is that it’s part of being a furnace owner, and it’s absolutely not optional. Maintenance is vital for keeping costs at a minimum in every aspect, and it’s also responsible for allowing your heater to run well into its old age.
You wouldn’t buy a car and never change the oil, right? Invest in maintenance for your heater so you can get the most out of your HVAC technology.
