In our previous article about fall maintenance we mentioned furnace tune-ups being one of the things you should take care of before winter hits. Since winter is close, we thought we’d explain further why this tune-up is important.
In this post we’re going to explore the top 3 benefits of getting this tune-up and why you shouldn’t wait until it gets cold.
1) Furnace tune-ups can save lives
If you don’t properly maintain your furnace, you may be vulnerable to carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be deadly.
Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas that can’t be detected by any of your five senses. If your furnace has not been regularly maintained, it could be creating dangerous levels of this deadly gas.
During a furnace tune-up, a heating technician will clean your furnace’s parts and check for any cracks, which will help prevent incomplete combustion (the cause of carbon monoxide).
2) Furnace tune-ups save you money
By tuning up your furnace’s internal components, such as the heat exchanger and burner, you’ll make sure it’s as energy efficient as possible. When your furnace is energy efficient, it lowers energy consumption and therefore saves you money on your energy bill.
3) Furnace tune-ups prevent breakdowns
No one wants their car breaking down in the middle of nowhere, so why would you want your furnace breaking down in the middle of winter?
Also, waiting till your furnace breaks will cost you more money than if you have it tuned annually. Avoid the inconvenience and high costs of furnace breakdowns by getting an annual furnace tune-up.
Don’t wait until it’s too late
Most people in the Phoenix area procrastinate when it comes to getting their furnace tuned-up.
However, if you wait until the last second (like your neighbors), it will be much more difficult to get service since everyone else will also be asking for it at the same time.
