5 Reasons You Should Double-Check Your Furnace

We can expect the temperature to drop pretty significantly here in North Carolina this winter, and our team of professionals are here to TAKE GREAT CARE of any issues you may experience with your furnace. We recommend double-checking your furnace before the outdoor temperature drops, so you aren’t stuck in the cold without heat!

Increase System Longevity

A regularly maintained HVAC system will have an increased lifespan and improved energy efficiency. Simply remembering to change your furnace filter every 90 days will aid in enhancing your system’s efficiency. This will also improve overall airflow and the distribution of heat throughout your home.

Maintain Manufacturer’s Warranty

Annual maintenance is an easy and inexpensive way to stay aligned with your manufacturer’s warranty policy. Not only does preventative maintenance lower utility bills, increase efficiency, prevent costly repairs, but it also allows you to remain in check with the manufacturer’s policy to be covered for a repair or replacement! If there comes a day that you need to use your warranty policy, you will most likely be required to hand in service receipts.

Ensure Repair Prevention

Staying on top of preventative maintenance will not only lower your utility bills and improve the efficiency of your system, but it will prevent future repairs. Technicians will be able to diagnose any potential problems within your system before they develop into costly issues. As long as your system is less than 10 years old, then it is worth inheriting the repair; however, if it’s more than 10 years old and the repair is half the cost of a new furnace, you may want to consider replacing your system.

Reduce Utility Bills

Annual preventative maintenance allows your system to work efficiently and use less energy. In return, you may be able to save up to 30% on annual utility bills. You can also install a programmable thermostat that allows you to zone control rooms by temperature needs. This zoning can also be set by specific times to optimize the amount of time your furnace is working.

Detect Gas and Carbon Monoxide Leaks

Furnaces produce heat by burning fuel and annual maintenance ensures this combustion process is efficient and safe. An issue within the combustion process can lead to a gas leak, which in some cases can be lethal to you and your family. An unserviced furnace also runs the risk of a carbon monoxide leak. These are harder to detect due to their colorless and odorless nature. Don’t run the risk of a potentially deadly leak by not scheduling annual maintenance for your furnace.
