If you’ve noticed an increasing number of furnace repairs over the last several years, it could be that your heating system has some underlying issues which haven’t been addressed, or it might be that your furnace is simply getting old and requires replacement. One thing you can do to avoid a whole series of repairs to your heating system is to have regular furnace maintenance performed by a professional. A skilled furnace repairman will be able to spot potential issues and correct them before they can worsen into serious problems, thereby potentially saving you a ton of money on costly repairs.
It would be to your advantage to have a heating contractor conduct a furnace tune-up prior to the cold season every year, so you can have confidence that you won’t experience a breakdown during the season, at some very inconvenient moment. During a tune-up, any worn parts will be identified and replaced, parts requiring lubrication can be serviced, and a performance test can be conducted to ensure that your furnace is ready for the demands of the coming cold season.
Why do regular furnace maintenance?
A&H Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC is a furnace contractor which has been in business for many years in the Northwest, and we have seen first-hand the kinds of results which can occur when a furnace is neglected for long periods of time. On the other hand, there are a number of benefits provided by regular maintenance and a good furnace tune-up at the start of the season:
You can expect better energy efficiency from a system which has been optimized, because less energy will be required for its normal operation. A less efficient system uses more and more energy in order to produce heated air, and that can end up being more costly.
Your family’s comfort will also be at a higher level, since you won’t have household sections which receive uneven warming or ineffective service.
Historically, the biggest reasons for furnace repairs are general neglect and failure of various components. If you can eliminate these as culprits, it stands to reason that you’ll have fewer furnace repairs which are necessary, and you’ll end up saving money, just by investing in regular maintenance.
You’ll also find that by replacing worn parts promptly and conducting periodic maintenance, your heating system lasts longer and is able to provide top-notch performance for a longer period of time. In other words, you’ll be extending the life of your heating system, and helping it to perform optimally for its entire life cycle.
