But why is exactly why furnace maintenance is essential? Here are six good reasons why an annual tune-up is so important to the efficiency of your heating system and the safety of your home.
Ensures proper airflow
During the furnace tune-up, the heating technician should check your heating system to ensure it is receiving the proper airflow. Restricted or limited airflow places an unnecessary strain on your furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.
Keeps you safe
Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. This combustion process must be precise to maintain efficiency and safety. Even a small problem can lead to gas leaking into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. Don’t take a chance with the health and safety of you and your family.
Every winter, we receive calls from Charlotte-area residents with heating problems that could have been easily prevented with regular maintenance. A furnace tune-up not only includes cleaning that keeps your furnace running efficiently, but it also catches small problems before they turn into major repairs.
Getting a furnace tune-up now, before the weather is cold, is much more convenient than waiting for a repairman during the winter in a cold home without heat. It is also much cheaper.
Improves energy efficiency
A furnace tune-up should include the cleaning and inspection of the furnace burner and heat exchanger. In addition to ensuring safe operation, this will keep your furnace running efficiently all winter.
Maintains manufacturer’s warranty
If your heater is under a manufacturer’s warranty, it is especially important for you to get an annual furnace tune-up. Most manufacturer’s stipulate that their warranty becomes void if the heater is not regularly maintained. A furnace tune-up can satisfy that requirement and maintain your warranty.
All of these benefits of a furnace tune-up boil down to two things: keeping you safe and saving you money. Contact us here today at Horne Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule your tune-up early, before cold weather hits the Charlotte area.
