Routine Fall Maintenance for Your Furnace – Don’t Forget!

As we’ve seen with the recent heat wave, sometimes the summer drags on beyond the official first day of fall, causing us to forget about what’s coming: cold weather.

This is actually the perfect time to schedule an annual tune-up and safety check for your furnace, and beat the procrastinators. You know the temperatures can be a bit unpredictable this time of year, so you might find yourself having to turn on the furnace before it’s ready to go for the cold season.

It’s very important to complete the pre-season checkout before the cool weather arrives. This will ensure the safety and comfort of your family.

Here are our eight reasons to get your furnace checkout completed soon:

Preventive Strike. Our furnace inspection protocols incudes a thorough inspection by a qualified HVAC service tech, and will discover small problems before they become big ones. Taking care of small, inexpensive fixes before it gets cold may allow you to avoid major breakdowns. It may also allow you to take care of any problems before the furnace is actually needed, and warn you of when the furnace could be reaching the end of its useful life.

Keep It Safe. Certain furnace issues can result in much more than just being uncomfortable. A cracked heat exchanger can potentially leak dangerous and deadly carbon monoxide gas into your home. Early detection catches it, and prompt repairs prevent it from becoming an issue. Of course, there is no better time to catch this type of issue than during one of our furnace checkout sessions.

Avoid the Smell. Have you ever experienced that foul, musty odor of burning dust when you first fire up the furnace? A thorough tune-up and cleaning can prevent that. We’ll also lubricate any moving parts to prevent any mechanical issues in the furnace.

HVAC Pressure. Our service techs use specialized tools to measure pressure in your system. Low pressure means your furnace isn’t doing its job properly; our tune-up can detect this issue early and our techs can fix it before it becomes a major expense.

Extended Furnace Life. The one single thing you can do to add years to your furnace’s lifespan is annual maintenance. A typical furnace needs replacement after about 15 years, but maintenance can help it last for 20 years or more.

Energy Savings. The process of tuning up a furnace makes it more efficient, resulting in lower fuel bills. Sometimes the savings can be significant and save you money for the entire heating season.

Warranty. If your furnace is relatively new and still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, the warranty may require regular routine maintenance to enforce the warranty. Spending a small amount on an annual tune-up goes a long way to ensure your warranty coverage remains in place.

Property Value. We’ll provide you with a detailed written report that explains what our service tech did, any potential issues he found, and recommended repairs. These reports create a track record of regular service that can demonstrate to a potential buyer of your home (should you decide to sell) that it has been maintained properly. This could result in whether your home sells quickly, and could definitely affect the selling price.
