Winter’s in Colorado can vary from week to week, day to day, and year to year. Lakewood Plumbing and Heating has developed a few of our top reasons to schedule your furnace tune-up before winter.
Your furnace means everything during the colder months of the year. While you might be using space heaters and snuggling up in blankets for extra relief, you need your furnace working it’s best in order to stay comfortable all winter long.
However, to ensure your furnace works effectively for many years to come, annual furnace maintenance is necessary. If you’ve neglected maintenance in the past, now is the perfect time to schedule service. In order to be prepared for the chilly months ahead, maintenance for your furnace is a must. However, this service should be completed by a professional.
A furnace is a very complex system with a lot of different components. During a maintenance visit from a licensed technician, they’ll clean the components, replace/clean filters, repair parts if needed, and more. Yearly tune-ups have numerous benefits!
Reasons to Schedule Your Furnace Tune-Up Before Winter
Increases System Longevity and Reliability
If you’ve ever purchased a new heating or cooling system, then you know that it’s not a cheap investment. With so much initial cost invested in the machine, making sure that your system lasts as long as possible means a better value for your money. Letting your furnace get run-down means costly repairs on a regular basis and a system that won’t last as long. Yearly maintenance catches problems early and will add years to the lifespan.
Increases System Performance
Our cars work best when they have fresh oil, fresh filters, and enough gas. Furthermore, they operate at a high performance when their parts are clean. Same goes for our air conditioners and furnaces. When they have clean, working parts, their performance is at an all-time high. This is a top reason why furnace maintenance is so important before winter. If your furnace has parts that are dirty or even broken, your system obviously won’t work at its best.
Helps You Save On Energy
When your furnace is working at its optimal level, it won’t have to work as hard. While that means greater performance, it also means less energy — which means savings on your energy bills. A healthy furnace only powers on when it needs to. If a furnace’s parts are clean and everything is functioning as it should, that results in less operating time, which means more savings for you!
