Save Money and Avoid Major Breakdowns by Servicing your Furnace Annually.

Why Have Your Furnace Serviced?

As fall is upon us and the leaves begin to fall, many homeowners turn their thoughts to the winter months, and more specifically, their furnace. It’s no secret that a furnace breakdown in the middle of a cold winter night can spell disaster, which is why you need to protect your investment with timely furnace service. Here are a few reasons to pick up the phone and schedule an appointment.

Savings on Your Heating Bills

When you have your furnace serviced each year before the cold weather shows up, it helps you save money in a few different ways. First, the technician can perform any minor furnace repairs that are needed, so you won’t have to suffer through more extensive heating repair in the future.

Second, your annual maintenance visit will help keep your system running as efficiently as possible, saving you money throughout the winter. Something as simple as a clogged furnace filter can cause your system to work harder, reducing its efficiency and adding to your monthly bill.

Comfort All Winter Long

Without a functioning furnace, the temperature inside your home can drop fast, making for an incredibly uncomfortable situation. When you have your furnace serviced before the winter, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it has been checked over by a professional and it will continue to keep your family warm regardless of the outdoor temperature.

You’ll also notice an improvement in your indoor air quality with a freshly maintained furnace because all that dust and debris that was in your filter and around the system will be gone. When your furnace is congested, it will blow particles of dust and debris through the ductwork and into every room of your house.

Prevent a Worst-Case Scenario

Naturally, your family’s safety is paramount when it comes to maintaining and managing your home. And with your furnace, the potential for a carbon monoxide leak is always in the back of your mind. Having a properly functioning CO2 detector is critical, but preventing a leak from happening in the first place is even better.

How Often Do I Need Furnace Serviced?

Ideally, you should have your furnace serviced once per year; preferably in the fall after it has been sitting dormant for several months. This way, you know it will be clean, and any issues can be addressed before you need to use it on a regular basis. If your furnace is older, you may need a new furnace installation to help avoid costly HVAC repairs during the winter. Whatever the situation, regular furnace service allows you to get your furnace ready before it will be working its hardest, so you and your family will be comfortable and safe.
