The majority of homeowners understand that a yearly furnace checkup is encouraged, but not many actually take it seriously.
Many homeowners do not think maintenance is necessary and that it is an extra expense. Many people wait until the furnace stops working and often that is too late, and they pay for it, literally.
Here are some reasons why an annual furnace checkup is important.
To keep your family safe from dangers Like gas and carbon monoxide leaks
Furnaces produce heat by burning gas or other types of fuel. That is why it is critical to make certain that the combustion process is efficient.
Sometimes problems with your furnace system can lead to a gas leak. Also, a furnace runs the risk of carbon monoxide leaks when it goes unchecked. Carbon monoxide gas is colourless and odorless which makes it harder to detect. Some of the symptoms of high carbon monoxide levels is nausea, headaches, and possible death.
Reducing your energy bill
Energy bills can add up quickly, especially if we have a very cold winter. When you maintain your furnace, it will be more energy-efficient. When you do regular maintenance, studies have shown that it can save you as much as 25% in energy consumption. When you add a smart thermostat to your home, it will also help to save you money and make your winter much more enjoyable. We recommend that you also change your furnace filters every couple of months to help increase your savings.
The Manufacturer’s warranty
If your furnace is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, it’s important to get regular furnace tune-ups. Many quality furnaces usually have a 10-year warranty option. All furnace manufacturers will want to see proof of service records if you make a warranty claim. The cost of annual furnace maintenance is small compare to the costs of a new furnace replacement. We have serviced furnaces that are over 20 years. They last longer when they are taken care of.
Keeping your home comfortable all winter long.
It is highly recommended to get your annual furnace tune-up before the winter begins. This way you can fix the issues before a furnace brake down at 2 a.m. on a -20℃ morning. It wise to understand the condition of your furnace before the cold weather comes. A high-quality furnace will be effective and will last you longer.
