Avoid Expensive Repairs
Over the summer, your heating system sits idle. That allows dirt and dust to build up inside your unit. If not cleaned out, this can cause trouble for your internal components. You may smell a burning odor when you fire up your heater for the first time each season. That’s the dust burning off. A pre-season checkup, before you need it, is recommended.
In just one year, your furnace and air conditioning units can run continuously for days. In the course of a year, it adds up to an average of 2,000 hours. If you neglect regular maintenance, you will waste energy and increase your energy bills. You run the risk of more expensive repairs and shorten the life of your heating equipment. A licensed professional can give your system a comprehensive checkup, clean components, and make sure everything is in great shape for the upcoming winter.
Don’t Risk Your Warranty
Regular maintenance can also make sure your warranty stays in place. Manufacturer warranties may be void if regular maintenance is not conducted.
Check For Carbon Monoxide
It is also important to have a safety check as well. Gas furnaces typically emit small amounts of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is harmless when it’s properly vented into the outside air where it dissipates. If it builds up in your furnace or in your home, it can be deadly. It is tough to detect because it does not have an odor, you can’t see it or taste it.
