Do you consider preventative maintenance on your home’s furnace as an unnecessary expense? You are not alone. But here is the thing: you would not drive your car for over a year without changing its oil and having its brakes checked, right? You do that to protect your car’s engine and to make sure it is safe to drive. Having your furnace serviced each year helps ensure that it is ready to face our cold Minnesota winters and in a safe way, too.
Preventative maintenance can also provide you with the following five benefits.
1. Helps Prevent a Major Breakdown
Having yearly maintenance on your furnace will help prevent it from breaking down just when you need it most, in the dead of winter. Our technicians will inspect and lubricate all moving parts, make any needed adjustments and make recommendations for any repairs that may be needed.
2. Improves Efficiency of your Furnace
With the cost of fuel constantly on the rise, you want your furnace to run as efficiently as possible. Preventative maintenance services, including removing accumulated dust or debris and inspecting your air filters, help ensure your system runs smoothly. A furnace that runs smoothly will use less energy, which in turn keeps your utility bills in check.
3. Helps Keep Your Family Safe
An essential part of regular professional maintenance is that our technicians perform safety checks. Your furnace will be checked for hazards, such as loose or frayed electrical connections, cracked burners or deadly carbon monoxide leaks. This can help keep you and your family safer during the heating season.
4. Saves Money on Emergency Repairs
Emergency repairs can be costly, but not only in the context of what it will cost to repair your furnace. You may need to take time off from work to be home for the repairs. Also, do not forget the discomfort to your family if your heat is not working.
5. Helps Extend the Life of Your Furnace
Replacing your furnace is a major investment in your home. Therefore, you want to make sure that it lasts as long as possible. Preventative maintenance can help your furnace last through its expected life span.
