In the fall, coats and sweaters make an appearance, and roads glisten with frost. Many homeowners prepare for the cool and cozy weather by performing a comprehensive tune-up service on their heating systems – and there are many benefits to doing this.
One of the first things a technician will check during a tune-up visit is whether or not your furnace is receiving healthy and sufficient airflow. If the airflow is restricted or limited, your heating equipment will experience an unnecessary strain that can lead to frequent repairs and a shortened service life.
Because furnaces burn fuel to generate heat for your home, the combustion process must be faultless to maintain a level of efficiency and safety. Even a small complication in the system can lead to harmful gas leaks and increased carbon monoxide levels.
Every winter, many residents and commercial building owners report heating-related problems that could have been prevented with an annual HVAC maintenance service in the fall. Note that a furnace tune-up not only includes thorough cleaning, but also the tightening of electrical connections, inspection of the burner and heat exchanger, lubrication of motor bearings and other moving parts, and more.
Getting a furnace tune-up in the fall, before the absolutely freezing temperatures roll in, is more convenient than waiting for a repairman to arrive at your doorstep during winter without heat.
If your furnace is under a manufacturer’s warranty, it is especially important to perform an annual inspection and tune-up on your equipment. Most warranties can be voided when proper maintenance is not carried out annually.
