If you enjoy waking up on a cold winter morning to a perfectly heated home, you probably want to do everything you can to make sure you never have to go without heat. While a quality installation and timely repairs are part of having healthy home comfort equipment, no furnace can work its absolute best without the addition of yearly tune-ups. When you add tune-ups to your home maintenance checklist, you may be surprised at how much your system and your home will benefit.
What is Included in Our Tune-Ups?
Furnace tune-ups include cleaning of all essential components, lubrication of moving parts, small adjustments, filter replacements, and an extensive inspection of the entire system. They are most often performed in the fall or just before temperatures get too cold to go without a heating source.
Why Are Tune-Ups Important?
Tune-ups cost money, so many homeowners wish to do a little bit of research to make sure they are a good use of their money. However, licensed technicians all across the country agree that tune-ups are the best way for homeowners to save money, protect their homes, and lengthen the lifespan of their systems.
When working properly, furnaces are an extremely safe and effective way to heat the home. However, certain malfunctions can cause dangerous problems inside the home which our team at Jennings is eager to prevent. Carbon monoxide is produced when a poorly maintained system improperly combusts gas. This CO is released into the air and can cause headaches, nausea, asphyxiation, and even death if exposure levels are high.
Gas leaks can also occur in furnace systems that have not been cared for. While gas leaks can cause health problems, they can also lead to a fire or an explosion. They can be avoided through regular inspection of the gas line and necessary repairs and adjustments.
Finally, electrical malfunctions due to loose connections, inadequate electrical service, and more, can also be dangerous for your family. During a tune-up, we inspect the electrical system and tighten loose connections so that your system can be safe from electrical failure. The safety of your system is our priority, and tune-ups are one of the best ways to detect problems before they become a danger.
In addition to keeping your home safe, tune-ups can also save you money in the long run. Investing a little bit of money now can help keep your furnace from requiring costly repairs in the future and extend the life of your furnace.
Dirt and dust in your system can cause mechanical failures in the long term, and can also reduce efficiency. Without regular cleaning, your furnace will be working twice as hard to get warm air to every room in your home. Frequent cycling or constant running will always make your system wear out faster and you will probably experience higher utility bills in the meantime. You can save yourself the aggravation of both by investing in fall maintenance.
The more you care for your furnace, the longer it will be able to care of you. A well-maintained furnace can last for 20 years or more, but a neglected one may break down in half the time. Save your money for other things by getting more out of your system.
