Another winter is on the horizon, which means it’s time to think about scheduling maintenance on your furnace. Just as your vehicle requires regular tune-ups and oil changes, you furnace also requires professional care and attention to ensure it is performing optimally and safely.
A furnace that doesn’t receive regular maintenance will not perform as efficiently which drives up your utility bills and energy use. An older furnace or improperly sized furnace for your home will also affect your energy use, but the most common reason is poor maintenance. If you haven’t had a tuneup in over a year, you are most likely wasting both energy and money.
The small investment for a furnace tune-up will be worth it to keep your furnace clean and ensure it is performing optimally, preventing major repairs or replacements down the road. Here are some reasons why every homeowner needs to schedule an annual furnace tune-up.
During routine furnace service, our technicians will conduct an 18-point tune-up. Several steps are taken during a professional tune-up including checking the blower access door and fresh intake grills. The burners are checked for proper ignition, burner flame, and flame sense. The blower wheel will be checked for debris and cleaned if necessary. We check the wiring for corrosion and damage, the heat exchanger for rust, corrosion, and cracks which can lead to carbon monoxide seeping into your home. These are just a few of the things that our technicians will do during an 18-point furnace tuneup.
Routine tune-ups save you money in the long run and keep your furnace running efficiently. If you are are due for an annual furnace tuneup, you can contact the professionals at Always Plumbing & Heating to schedule an appointment. Always Plumbing & Heating provides outstanding service 24/7.
