The Importance of Regular Furnace Maintenance

If you live in the Austin Metro area, you know you need your furnace in the winter months. Doing regular maintenance on your heating systems can make sure your home stays warm and your heating system works at peak efficiency.

Peace of Mind

The licensed professionals at Totally Cool can provide you with peace of mind:

  • Your system works when you need it
  • Efficient systems use less energy and can reduce your electric or gas bills
  • Regular maintenance means an efficient system
  • Reduce leaks
  • Find small issues and fix them in order to avoid expensive repair or replacements
  • Reduce breakdowns

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.
