How Does Furnace Service Prevent Breakdowns?

Colder temperatures outside mean hot chocolate, heavier sweaters and furnace service. Wait, what? Truly, if you’ve delayed furnace service, now is a great time to schedule it. Winter activities seem to accelerate quickly from the school programs and concerts to holiday gatherings.

Knock furnace service off your to-do list and enjoy the season with friends and family. In addition, if you’re hosting an event, rest easy knowing your heat will welcome your guests and keep them cozy all evening.

Furnace Service Keeps Utility Bills Under Control

Another benefit to furnace service is the increased efficiency of your heating unit. When a furnace strains to function, it’s unable to perform as designed. The engineer designs the heating unit to perform at optimal efficiency.

When a belt or other component is worn out, it can’t achieve optimal performance. Proactive furnace service helps your furnace perform as well as it can. While all heating units lose efficiency as they age, the proper care of your current unit saves you money now and later.

Advances in HVAC technology continue to strive for greater efficiency. For example, if every gas furnace sold in the U.S. met the current ENERGY STAR requirements, consumer energy cost savings would grow to about $171 million per year.

How Furnace Service Avoids the Need for Repairs

Simply, when you schedule preventative maintenance with a trusted local HVAC contractor like Homesense, you receive a host of benefits. One is greater efficiency and reliability from your heating and cooling system.

When the NATE-certified technician inspects your furnace, he looks for anything out of the ordinary. He cleans and tests all applicable components. He verifies accurate communication between your HVAC system and your thermostat.

In addition, he looks for indications of a potential furnace repair need. It’s the identification of these smaller items which ultimately prevent the need for an untimely furnace replacement.

Furnace Service Prevents More Than Breakdowns

Did you know, if something as simple as a dirty and clogged filter causes the heat exchanger to overheat, you’re at risk for greater dangers than an inconvenient furnace repair or breakdown? A cracked heat exchanger exposes you to possible fires or lethal carbon monoxide poisoning.

Be sure to check your air filter regularly, change it every two to three months as necessary and look out for unusual noises, odors or behavior from your heating system. A spike in an energy bill, unrelated to usage or weather is also cause for concern.
