Is Furnace Maintenance Necessary?

February 13, 2020

Furnace Maintenance is NecessaryA gas or oil furnace can provide keep your home warm for well over a decade, provided that it is maintained. Rather than wait for the system to break down completely, consider getting maintenance for it on a regular basis. The following are a few good reasons for doing so.

It Keeps Warranties Valid

Perhaps your furnace comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. To keep it in effect, you will likely need to provide the furnace with a professional tune-up at least once a year. A valid warranty can normally cover you for parts replacements and even unit replacements for several years.

It Increases Energy Efficiency

A number of things can compromise furnace performance, such as the buildup of dirt, dust, and grime inside the system. Signs that can alert you to compromised performance include lukewarm air, cold spots in rooms, and longer-than-usual heating cycles. High energy bills are another sign.

It Prevents Major Repairs

Besides seeing the warning signs of a compromised system, you may find that your system is frequently breaking down. A tune-up can avert this, too, since it will catch any problems that develop while they are still small.

It Reduces the Chance of Fires

Gas- and oil-fired furnaces run the risk for fires. Leaks and cracks can also lead to exposure to carbon monoxide and other pollutants. With maintenance, though, you won’t need to worry about these combustion-related hazards. The average tune-up can involve an inspection of the heat exchanger, gas valve, and gas burner, too.
