The worst-case scenario is a dark and cold winter night and your furnace goes out. When you don’t schedule a fall furnace tune-up you increase the possibility of this happening at your home. Simply put, your furnace needs a tune-up to make sure it runs correctly. If you overlook this regular maintenance furnace breakdowns are bound to happen.
Discover the other benefits of scheduling a fall furnace tune-up by reading below:
Half of your energy costs are made up of heating and cooling. When one of these systems is working less efficiently, your prices rise. This is because your system has to work harder to provide the same level of comfort you have set for your home and consumes more energy and more money from your pocket. When you neglect regular maintenance, parts can lack lubricant, belts begin to fray, and air filters remain dirty. All these are reasons why your furnace may begin to not function correctly and your energy bill will begin to rise. On the other hand, when your system is operating properly, you’ll see fewer issues and lower energy bills.
When you take care of your belongings, they last longer. Most broken HVAC systems are a result lack of maintenance. When you skip your fall furnace tune-up, dirt, and other debris build up in your system. When you have been overworked you understand that productivity drops and you take longer to complete tasks, or you all together have to stop because you can’t go any further. This same situation happens with your furnace after working so hard day after day to provide heat to your home. A system that receives routine maintenance will last 25-to-40% longer and be healthier.
A majority of furnace manufacturers require owners to conduct regular maintenance on their heating systems to ensure that the warranty remains intact. This maintenance has to be performed by a licensed expert and will be beneficial if significant components of your system fail. If you choose to not get regular maintenance, you’ll likely have to forfeit the warranty which could make your future repairs more expensive.
You wouldn’t let years pass before you take your car in to get serviced. Why neglect an annual fall furnace tune-up? By doing this in the fall, you will save energy, money, time, and frustration plus potentially identifying and fixing a small problem that could turn into a significant cost in the future.
