There are many reasons as to why a homeowner needs a furnace tune-up each year. Sure, furnaces are built to last for many years, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t require routine maintenance. So, in order to ensure that your furnace performs as well as possible, it’s important to schedule a yearly tune-up. In addition to making you aware of any current or potential problems, a tune-up helps your furnace run more efficiently. This not only helps to reduce your energy bills, but it also makes your home safer for you and your family.
In addition to your family’s overall health and safety, you will want to schedule annual furnace maintenance to ensure that there is proper airflow. Having proper airflow will safeguard the longevity of your furnace. Often, when the airflow is limited and left unchecked, your furnace has to work twice as hard as it normally would. This added pressure can cause a strain on the furnace which, over time, will lead to a need for furnace repair.
Additionally, by scheduling your yearly furnace tune-up, you won’t have to worry about any unpleasant surprises in the dead of winter. Any foreseeable problems or possible repairs will be addressed during your routine furnace maintenance and not when you notice that your heating system doesn’t work. By taking the time to have a knowledgeable heating and cooling technician check your furnace yearly, you can know that your furnace is in good working condition and has been properly cleaned and thoroughly inspected.
Finally, regular maintenance is often a condition in many furnace warranties. So, if your furnace is in need of repairs, but you haven’t kept up with regular maintenance, then it’s highly likely that your warranty will be voided and you will have to pay for the repairs out of your own pocket.
