When it comes to household equipment your furnace is often forgotten about, but your furnace is the one piece of equipment that gets the most use – far more than your air conditioner, dishwasher, and washing machine. Just like your car, your furnace experiences regular wear and tear that requires regular maintenance to keep it running optimally. If you’ve forgotten to schedule a furnace check up so far this year (or in many years), here are some of the top reasons you should consider scheduling one right away.
Your furnace has an estimated lifespan of 15 to 20 years, and most machines don’t make it past the 15-year mark without regular repair and maintenance. Scheduling a furnace inspection regularly – at least twice a year – will ensure that any apparent issues or signs of wear and tear are immediately addressed to help extend the life of your furnace.
Catch Potential Issues
It’s often difficult to tell if your furnace is operating properly. There could be problems starting to form that can lead to larger, costly repairs in the future. Often, one simple problem creates a series of escalating issues, so having annual inspections ensures a professional can address any budding issues now to limit further repairs and expenses in the future.
A qualified HVAC technician has the skillset to improve your furnace’s efficiency and optimize its performance. Professionals will conduct a full cleaning of the machine and inspect all the components for any signs of wear and tear. They can replace dirty filters that put extra strain on the heating system and reduce indoor air quality. They can also identify if your machine is running at peak efficiency or if the equipment is working harder than it needs to, making any necessary adjustments to enhance its overall capabilities.
Save You Money
An HVAC technician knows when your furnace needs a simple repair versus a complete replacement. A machine that is not running optimally can end up costing you a lot of money in energy bills. By installing a new energy efficient machine, you could save hundreds and potentially thousands of dollars from your energy bills annually. The technician can keep you informed about what might make the most sense for you in regards to the current condition of the furnace.
Without regular inspections and maintenance, your furnace can encounter all types of costly problems. Having a professional HVAC technician inspect and repair your machine on a regular basis will ensure you achieve the best heating and indoor air quality that is possible.
