With winter just around the corner, there are a number of items that homeowners need to tick out in the ol’ to-do-list. One of these items is furnace maintenance. Without regularly scheduled maintenance, your furnace can run up utility bills and cost you thousands in repairs – not to mention discomfort caused by lack of heat in the cold season. So what do you get from quality furnace installation and maintenance?
Here are some of the benefits:
Reduced utility bills – Through regular maintenance, your furnace will be calibrated to run more efficiently, therefore maximizing performance throughout winter. When performance is at peak level, power consumption is minimized by a significant margin, therefore lowering the power bill. To enhance performance, contact us to make sure all electrical connections are tightened, the blower components are adjusted, moving parts are lubricated, correct airflow is measured, the gas pressure is inspected, and the evaporator and condenser coils are inspected.
Regular maintenance extends equipment life – A detailed inspection can point out potential problem areas so the technician can make adjustments before any serious damage occurs. Simple things like lubricating the moving parts and removing dirt and debris can go a long way towards improving performance and therefore extending the life of the unit. Manufacturers recommend following the stipulated maintenance procedure to prevent certain parts of the unit from getting damaged or wearing out so that your furnace stays functional for longer.
No costly repairs – Since regular maintenance points out minor problems early on, there is no chance of the furnace suffering extensive damage – as is the case with neglected furnaces. Homeowners can, therefore, save money that would typically go toward repairing serious breakdowns during winter.
Maintenance addresses safety concerns – Each scheduled inspection takes into account the standard safety features and known hazardous areas. This is meant to prevent accidents and ensure that your family stays safe throughout the life of the unit. Standard safety measures include cleaning the burner assembly, testing safety controls, inspecting and cleaning air filters, checking the heat exchanger, calibrating the gas valve, etc. A thorough inspection of all these components helps to prevent incidents of malfunction and enhances safety for the family.
Regular maintenance validates a lifetime warranty – Manufacturers take on the responsibility of ensuring that each installed furnace functions at an optimum level and meets all required safety standards. One way this is achieved is by directing at least one service appointment per year to keep the warranty intact. This also serves to improve performance and reduce chances of equipment failure, and it saves you money in the long run.
Inspect the fireplace – For homes with a gas fireplace or stove, maintenance is just as important to promoting safety and enhancing performance. Biannual inspection is ideal for heating appliances in the home, so contact us to plan a maintenance program that takes care of all those technical elements that influence furnace performance.
Are you looking for adjusted financing to pay for the unit over time? – Our clients have the option of signing up for a gradual payment plan when purchasing each unit. This helps to reduce payment to manageable premiums that you can pay over a comfortable period of time, which allows you to enjoy warm temperatures immediately, even as you go on about your business.
It contains multiple duct-work – a furnace system requires duct-work to send warm air to the rooms in your house, but it can also be used to deliver cool air in warm weather. This makes installing an AC system much easier when you have a furnace.
Widely available – furnaces are used extensively, which makes it easy to find parts
for damaged units.
Quick heating – gas heats quickly, and this means your living space will heat up quickly too.
Decent energy efficiency – most modern gas furnaces have good AFUE ratings, and electric furnaces have 100% AFUE ratings, making them very energy-efficient.
Always hire professionals to avoid being ripped off or experiencing regular appliance breakdown due to low-quality work. If you need to replace your heating system with an efficient alternative, contact us today to install a furnace in your home.
