Many people see a furnace or heat pump as a sort of set-it-and-forget it kind of arrangement. While it’s true they’ll likely function for years without interference, you could actually be costing yourself money by skipping routine maintenance. At Freedom Air and Heat, we offer inspections and tune-ups to make sure your furnace is working at maximum capacity.
Why Your Furnace Needs Tune-Ups
There are many benefits to having regular tune-ups on your furnace. First and most important, you prevent breakdowns and failures in the future. No one wants a unit to break, but it would be especially bad if something happened during the winter. Getting a tune-up before the temperatures fall ensures your system won’t let you down when winter comes knocking.
Another benefit is being able to spot minor problems before they turn into major ones. Leaks, damaged wires, and other issues all grow worse over time. During the tune-up, a technician will check for any defects so you can fix them before they become big problems. Finding issues before they’re bigger problems can make the difference between a repair that costs a few dollars and one that puts you out a few hundred.
Tuning up your furnace will keep you more comfortable. Over time, your unit may lose efficiency. It’ll work harder and provide less-satisfactory temperature control. Each inspection can help refresh your unit and ensure that it works at maximum capacity.
Better efficiency also means savings. When your unit doesn’t have to work as hard, you won’t be spending as much of your hard-earned money on power bills. You may even enjoy warmer temperatures in your home while still cutting consumption. And, of course, the sooner you get your tune-up done, the more time you’ll have to enjoy those savings through the winter season.
