Why You Need Furnace Maintenance
We often encounter homeowners that skip maintenance because they think their system will be fine without it. While this may be true for a while, preventative maintenance has many positive effects on your system and should be done annually. Here are some reasons you need preventative maintenance.
Your Heating Bills Are Too High
Have you noticed an increase in your heating bill although your heating habits have remained consistent? It’s likely that you’re battling against low heating efficiency. Your heater’s efficiency levels decline when you neglect your heater’s need for maintenance and repairs.
When your heater becomes inefficient, it has to work against obstacles like loose or faulty parts and a build-up of dust, dirt, and grime to heat your home. Forcing your system to work harder for the same standard results in heating raises your energy bills immensely. Having a service professional maintain your system annually will keep your bills low.
You Hear Troubling Noises
Do you hear noises like rattling, clanging, or grating when you turn on your heater? This is a sign you should contact a professional. Noises like this occur when you’re in need of heating repairs and are typically indicative of loose or faulty parts within your system. Maintaining your HVAC system regularly prevents problems like this from arising in the first place.
You Want to Extend the Lifetime of Your Furnace
Routine maintenance extends the lifespan of your HVAC system. This simple step allows your HVAC system to remain as efficient as possible which reduces strain. The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years—maintaining your system will help it last closer to the 20-year mark. Don’t neglect your annual maintenance appointments because you think your heater is doing fine, ensure that it is with an appointment with a professional.
You Want to Boost Your Indoor Air Quality
Your air ducts are not a part of your HVAC system that you can maintain on your own. A routine maintenance appointment will keep your air ducts clear and free of dust, dirt, and grime lessening the strain on your HVAC system and boosting the level of your indoor air quality. You’ll breathe easier with preventative maintenance.
