4 Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
Prevent Unwanted Furnace Breakdowns
If you’ve ever lost heat during a Central Ohio winter, you know that furnace breakdowns can be a complete nightmare. Our winters are known for getting extremely cold. We own furnaces for a reason. To keep them working like we need them to, preventative maintenance is a must. Despite this, an estimated 85% of the furnace repairs we perform each year are caused by things that could have been prevented with maintenance. Most furnace problems are due to a general lack of maintenance. Maintenance should be performed every single year during the fall or early winter. Doing so helps you avoid the vast majority of furnace problems that require furnace repairs.
Makes Furnace Last Longer
If you’ve ever installed a new furnace, you know that home heating systems are expensive. Because of the cost of furnace replacement, homeowners should do everything they can to make their furnaces last as long as possible. The best way to do preserve your heating equipment and ensure everything runs optimally for as long as possible, is to utilize seasonal maintenance. Without regular preventative maintenance from a professional, furnaces last about half as long as they would if they were taken care of properly. Manufacturers and furnace experts say this is something we should all try to keep in mind: Installing a brand new furnace sooner than expected is going to be far more expensive than any furnace maintenance visit you’ll ever have to make.
Maintain Your Equipment Warranty
Whenever we install a new heating system, we give our amazing customer a written warranty from the furnace’s manufacturer. This warranty says explicitly maintenance needs to be performed every single year by an NATE-certified technician to remain valid. If the homeowner fails to have this service performed even once, this valuable warranty is subject to being made void. If your warranty is no longer good and there’s an issue with a part of even a defective product, you get stuck paying for the furnace repairs (or even full furnace replacement) on your own using your own money. This is why we always encourage homeowners to be smart and play it safe. Seasonal maintenance keeps your home heating system protected from potential manufacturing flaws.
Reduces Home Heating Costs
In order for a furnace to adequately provide the heat you need throughout your home throughout the winter, your heating equipment needs regular maintenance. Maintenance also enables your furnace to work consistently and meet all your needs in the most affordable way possible. HVAC systems are not unlike other appliances and household equipment. This stuff develops wear and tear after continuous usage. There’s also an accumulation of dirt, dust, and other debris developing over time in your furnace. Ultimately this can undermine your equipment’s general heating efficiency and make heating bills skyrocket. Nevertheless, you can avoid this spike in heating costs that only increase over time by giving your furnace the professional care, attention and love it deserves.
