Don’t Fall Back on Your Fall Maintenance

With everything going on, it might seem that a furnace tune-up is the last thing you need to worry about in Dayton, Ohio. Ignoring the important task of maintaining your heating equipment will cause more headaches (not to mention money) in the long run as well as the short term.

Seven Reasons to Keep your Tune-Ups Up To Date For Your Furnace or Heat Pump

A poorly tuned furnace will cost you more in energy consumption as its efficiency falls. You might think you are saving money by postponing this year’s maintenance, but it will only cost you in utility bills.

Furnaces fail under pressure

At some point, the temperature will drop. Drastically. If your furnace or heat pump is ill-equipped to handle it, that is when it will fail. When you need it the most. Do not let this nightmare happen to you and your family. Stay warm all winter long, not just on the mild days.

Risk of carbon monoxide poisoning

If your furnace does not burn gas properly, you run the risk of carbon monoxide being produced. This puts you and your family at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. This risk is not worth the money you save from skipping your fall tune up.

Breathe easy

A clean fan and filter will ensure that the air you breathe is free from dust and other allergens. This is critical for the cold days ahead when you will be spending more time indoors. Even if you clean your ductwork, do not neglect your furnace. Replacing your furnace filters every month will also help you breathe cleaner air.

Quiet run

A finely tuned furnace, like a finely tuned car, will run rather than rattle. Keep the noise level at a minimum with a clean, balanced fan.

Avoid a major furnace repair

Regular furnace and heat pump maintenance takes care of any small issues that come up, so they do not develop into major problems. You will also get a handle of your heater’s operation so you can plan for furnace replacements in advance.

Prolong your furnace equipment’s life

Tune-ups do not just postpone expensive issues with your furnace, but you also buy yourself some time before the inevitable replacement. Keep your heating equipment running at peak efficiency and with minimal issues to ensure that you get the most out of it in the short term and for years to come.
