Your home’s furnace is just like any other piece of complex machinery, in that it requires regular maintenance to continue operating at its best. Everything from a car, to your own body requires fuel, fixing when things aren’t working like they should, and preventative care to keep bad things out in the first place. Scheduling an annual furnace tune up with a qualified Saint Augustine Heating professional is one of the best ways to ensure that your home’s furnace will be able to continue keeping you and your family warm on cold nights for a long time to come. Scheduling this service is essential for each and every home, even if you haven’t encountered any problems with your system in the past year or so. To better help you understand the many benefits to investing in this service, we have put together a short list of some of the most notable benefits that come along with getting an annual furnace tune up.
It Ensure Your Furnace’s Safe Operation
This benefit on its own is enough reason to schedule an annual furnace tune up from a licensed professional every single year. Most furnaces burn natural gas to produce their heat, which means that your home can be a safety hazard if your system starts to malfunction. During a tune up, a professional technician will perform a fully safety inspection and attend to any problems that could lead to safety issues if they aren’t properly addressed, like carbon monoxide leaks and fire hazards.
It Will Protect Your Furnace’s Warranty
Most furnace warranties have a stipulation in them that your system must receive professional maintenance at least once per year for it to remain valid. This is in large part because furnace manufacturer’s understand the importance of keeping your system in good repair, and the kind of impact it can have on system performance and longevity if you don’t. Taking the time to schedule this service at least once a year can protect you in the event that your furnace ever breaks down completely while still under warranty, so you won’t be looking at an extremely expensive replacement project.
It Can Save You Money On Your Heating Bills
One of the primary benefits to having your furnace tuned up regularly is that much of the work we perform will wind up increasing the efficiency of your system overall. This can result in heating bills over the course of the winter that are much lower than you are used to, leaving you extra money for vacation, gifts, or money that you could put towards other bills.
It Can Reduce The Chance Of Your Heat Going Out
If you lost heat in your home during the middle of a cold winter night, not only will it be an uncomfortable situation for everyone present, but it can also pose a health risk, especially among older family members or younger children. Furnace tune ups are as much about preventing future problems as they are about fixing ones already present. Because of this emphasis on preventative maintenance, the chances that you will have to go without heat completely are much slimmer.
It Can Prevent Long Term Damage To Your System
Scheduling an annual furnace tune up is one of the best ways to maximize the lifespan of your furnace. During a tune up, we will clean out your system, lubricate the moving parts, and check the connections that keep your system running smoothly. This way we can ensure that every aspect of your system is working together smoothly like they should.
