6 Reasons You Need Pre-Season Furnace Maintenance and Heating Service

Cooler weather is approaching soon and with that in mind, it’s time to start thinking about scheduling your furnace inspection. By having a yearly furnace inspection, you ensure that your furnace will work when you need it to, and you can avoid costly emergency repairs in your home.  Here are 6 reasons you should schedule your pre-season furnace maintenance today!

Clean Built-Up Rust and Dirt

A buildup of rust and dirt can cause pockets that trap gas and make hot spots on your furnace. A proper maintenance checkup will ensure this concern can be found and addressed accordingly. Even if you have a new furnace, maintenance is advised because there are many different factors can cause the rust and dirt to pile up.

Increase Efficiency

If you ignore or forget about your furnace’s yearly inspections, the dust and dirt can start to buildup on moving parts. While this may not seem like a big deal, this means that your furnace has to work harder to maintain the heat in your home, lowering the efficiency. When you get your furnace inspected, your technician will clean the parts and make sure they are working correctly, which allows your furnace to operate at peak efficiency.

Keep Your Device under Warranty

Some manufacturers require furnace owners to keep up with their maintenance checks in order to keep their warranty up. If something happens to go wrong with your furnace, and the manufacturer asks to see your inspection records, and you haven’t been getting regular inspections, your warranty could be invalid. Your yearly maintenance checks ensure that in the case of emergency, your warranty will still be valid.

Prolong the Life of Your Furnace

Preventative maintenance on your furnace helps make sure that all the parts of your furnace are working together seamlessly and reliably for years to come. When inspecting your heating unit, a technician might find small problems that, if left unchecked, could result in a huge repair later. By keeping up with your maintenance checks, you can save money by extending the life of your furnace.

Replace Worn out Parts and Air Filters

The internal parts of your furnace wear out over time, which can cause them to stop working.  By getting a yearly inspection done, the technician can find these problems and replace the parts before your furnace breaks down.  Additionally, your technician can also replace or clean the air filters in your furnace depending on your needs.  This will help your furnace work well and better the air quality in your home.

Prevent Carbon Monoxide Leaks

If the heat exchanger in your furnace happens to crack, gases like carbon monoxide can start to leak from the pipe into your home. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and extremely dangerous. It’s important to have your furnace inspected yearly to make sure your family is safe.
