It’s that time of year again. Christmas lights may be put away, but Jack Frost is still leaving his mark on your windows, and hot chocolate is still delicious. When it’s time to crank up the furnace, there are a few things to be aware of. Here we share with you 3 reasons why it may be time to service your furnace.
An annual tune-up can ensure that your furnace is working properly. A service call includes more than just checking and replacing the filter—your vent system needs to be checked for blockage/leakage as well. Your technician will also perform a variety of tests. The fresh air intake grills and louvers will be checked, as well as the blower access door, the heat exchanger, the drainage system, the blower wheel, and much more. You can feel at ease knowing that your furnace is safe and in good working order.
Is it really necessary to have a yearly tune-up for your furnace? Yes. Preventive maintenance catches any problems before they become serious, and it can go a long way in extending the life of the furnace. The last thing you want is for your furnace to quit working in the middle of the night when it’s below zero outside. Emergency rates will be much higher to pay in comparison to preventive maintenance fees.
If you read the fine lines of your owner’s manual, you’ll discover that with all furnace warranties, they do not cover any damage due to improper maintenance. Having an annual furnace checkup keeps your furnace working properly, and also keeps the warranty from becoming void.
