Why Do I Need to Schedule Routine Furnace Maintenance?
Hiring a professional HVAC contractor to tune up your furnace is crucial because he or she can:
- detect minor issues before they develop into bigger, costly problems
- prevent your unit from breaking down mid winter
- help protect your home and family
- maintain the manufacturer’s warranty
- save you money
Find Small Problems Before They Become Expensive
Servicing your heating unit before the cold weather sets in can ensure it keeps running all winter long. Annual checkups allow the HVAC contractor to detect and patch any minor issues before they turn into big malfunctions that cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Prevent Mid-Winter Breakdowns
Months with extreme weather keep HVAC companies very busy; so if you forgo the routine maintenance in the fall and your furnace breaks down on the coldest day of the year, it may take some time before a technician can even come to your home to evaluate the unit for repairs. Make sure your family stays warm by scheduling your furnace tune up in the off season.
Protect Your Household
Heating units, if damaged or poorly vented, have the potential to cause carbon monoxide poisoning and fire hazards. Annual furnace maintenance keeps your home and your family safe through proper ventilation and equipment inspection.
Maintain the System’s Warranty
Many appliance warranties require routine maintenance completed by a qualified heating and cooling professional. Even handy homeowners can accidentally void warranty coverage if they improperly service a unit that results in damage. Lenz Heating & Cooling will follow a furnace tune-up checklist to make sure your warranty remains intact.
Not only will annual maintenance save you money in the long run by preventing costly repairs, but it will also cut costs on your energy bill. Furnace tune-ups allow the technician to identify parts of the unit that are not operating as efficiently as they could be. Once your unit is running at maximum efficiency, you’ll see huge savings on your home’s heating costs.
What Does a Furnace Tune-Up Include?
Tightening loose parts and examining the burners and carbon monoxide detector is part of a furnace technician’s tune-up checklist. A visual inspection of the unit should also be conducted, which includes looking for corrosion, leaks, and proper ventilation as well as checking the air filter.
The Lenz Heating & Cooling furnace tune-up $69.99 special is available only for a limited time. So be sure to schedule your annual maintenance checkup before October 15, 2015!
Homeowner tip: The best thing you can do to maintain your furnace in between tune-ups is to replace the air filter every 30 to 90 days. Regularly changing the air filter prevents early system failure and keeps your unit operating efficiently.
