Why Is Having Your Furnace Professionally Maintained So Important?

why-is-furnace-maintenance-so-importantWe talk about maintenance a lot, and there is a good reason for that. Maintenance is what keeps your HVAC systems functioning as well as they should. Just as you would never skip a tune-up for your car—at least we hope you wouldn’t—you should never skip out on furnace check-ups either. It’s during these annual appointments (bi-annual if you have a heat pump, although we’re discussing furnaces here) that our professional technicians fully inspect and clean your heating system.

We’ll also make any necessary adjustments and recommendations for repairs so that you can schedule subsequent San Antonio, TX furnace services right away, if needed. We get a lot of calls from customers and potential customers with questions about their furnaces. But unfortunately, it’s usually when they already have a problem—one of which might have been avoided with the right preventive care. Routine maintenance allows you the peace of mind that comes with never worrying about whether or not your furnace is going to function each winter. Keep reading to learn more about the importance of this service.

Ensures Your Safety

Furnaces today are built with customer safety in mind. They are equipped with features that keep them functioning efficiently and safely. However if you have a gas furnace, risks do still exist. A cracked heat exchanger, for example, can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide leaks that in the best case scenario can cause significant illness. When your furnace is checked year-after-year, it allows our professionals to look at your risk factors and make repairs so that you don’t have to worry about this.

Improves Furnace Efficiency

When your furnace is cleaned and adjusted on a regular basis, it doesn’t have to work as hard. When dirt and debris accumulates inside the system, it can create friction on the various components and cause them to wear down, and break down.

This can eventually lead to a full system breakdown, years before the furnace should have died. With regular check-ups and care, your furnace doesn’t have to work as hard to do its job, and as a result you help improve your furnaces efficiency, and save energy and money to boot.

Increases the Longevity of Your Furnace

As we mentioned above, caring for your furnace on a regular basis helps it in that it doesn’t have to work as hard to do its job—and this means that it has a better chance of lasting its entire lifecycle instead of failing on you prematurely. We assure you that replacing your furnace before you need to is going to be a lot less cost effective than scheduling maintenance each year.
