Top Reasons Why Maintenance is Essential

Being regular or consistent with having preventative maintenance performed is a furnace’s best friend. Below are our Top Reasons Why Furnace Maintenance is Essential:

Lowers Your Heating Costs

Inside the unit and outside, dust and dirt builds up and causes issues. After a while, this hinders the system’s efficiency and its performance capacity, as it will start to need more fuel than before to keep up. By properly maintaining your expensive heating equipment, you are able to avoid this increase in costs, which only gets worse as time goes on. You could say a furnace that’s cared for is loved, and a loved furnace runs at its best, as it should. And you can count on that system to share that love right back with you in heating cost relief.

Because Safety Comes First

Because most of the residential furnaces we work on are fueled by natural gas, we must emphasize safety’s importance. Furnaces that burn natural gas are far, far more unpredictable and they can be dangerous when they aren’t being inspected on a routine schedule. During a furnace maintenance inspection, our technicians check your gas line and heat exchanger to see if there’s any carbon monoxide issues. If you have an electric furnace, this doesn’t mean you are immune to safety hazards. Wiring can often be a safety concern when it comes to electric furnaces. Bad wiring can cause electrical fires and other problems.

Prevents Bigger Problems

A lot of homeowners don’t know this. However, an estimated 85 percent of the repairs we do to furnaces could have been prevented with maintenance. Those homeowners who understand this best are usually advocates of having us perform it on schedule every fall, as it saves them time, money, and headaches down the road.

Maintaining Your Warranty

Whenever we install a new furnace, the equipment’s manufacturer extends a warranty and requires the customer to have regular maintenance performed by a certified professional to keep this warranty valid and active. If a customer fails to do so, or neglects having it done for even a single season, the warranty becomes worthless. After that, if something happens, the customer is stuck in a bad position, having to pay for repairs and replacement parts on a newer system out of their own pocket.

Home Heating Safety Tips for Pickerington, OH Homeowners

We hope you’re enjoying a warm and cozy winter season in your well-heated, Central Ohio home. More importantly than comfort, however, we want you to keep your home safe throughout the winter and holidays. We’ve put together the following general three home heating safety tips to follow to avoid any hazardous circumstances:

1.) Create Safe Spaces

Anything that is flammable or combustible should be kept at least three feet away from any and all heating equipment and heat sources, including furnaces, fireplaces, and portable space heaters. This area should also be a “kid free zone.”

2.) Test Smoke Alarms

Don’t forget to test your smoke alarms monthly and make sure you have carbon monoxide (CO) alarms installed throughout your home to avoid the risk of CO poisoning and test them monthly as well. Replace batteries for all alarms periodically, and as needed.

3.) Report Gas Concerns

If you smell gas in your home or emanating from your gas heater, do not turn on the appliance or ignite it. Evacuate your home immediately if you suspect gas is leaking and call your local fire department or gas company before re-entering.
