You always take your car in for tune-ups, but what about your furnace? Just like your car, your furnace needs regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly.
Here are the top 5 reasons to get a furnace tune-up this fall:
1. Prevent costly repairs down the road. By getting a tune-up now, you can avoid more expensive repairs later on.
People may think they’re saving money by skipping a furnace tune-up, but it will actually end up costing them more in the long run when a large component fails due to something small that could have been caught early. Whether that’s a screw loose…gears that need oiling…Whatever the problem is, if it’s diagnosed early, it will be less expensive to fix.
2. Your furnace will run more efficiently.
Just like with your car, a tune-up can help your furnace run more smoothly and efficiently. This not only saves you money on your energy bills but also helps prolong the life of your furnace. If your furnace is running efficiently, it’s not working as hard, and that means it will last longer. Why not get a few extra years out of such a big investment?
3. You’ll breathe easier.
If you don’t change your furnace filter often enough, it will be covered with a layer of dust and dirt. This is not only bad for your home’s air quality, but also potentially dangerous. It stops air from reaching the heat exchanger, which could actually cause the heat exchanger to crack and harmful carbon dioxide to leak out! Your technician will likely check this before servicing anything else. And, sure, you can and should be changing your furnace filter yourself, but let’s be honest, many of us tend to forget.
That’s why it’s great to be part of our Blue Chip Club, so you are automatically scheduled for annual service.
4. You’ll be prepared for the winter rush.
If you wait until the middle of winter to get a tune-up, you may have to wait a while before someone can come out to service your furnace. While we always come as quickly as possible here at Standard, and we do have emergency service available, it’s always best to be prepared for the winter rush. By getting a tune-up now, you can rest assured knowing your furnace is ready to go when the cold weather hits.
5. You’ll get peace of mind.
There’s nothing worse than being left in the cold because your furnace has broken down. By getting a tune-up, you can rest easy knowing your furnace is in good working order and less likely to break down when you need it most. Even better, you’ll know that your family is safe and comfortable all winter long.
