4 Benefits of Scheduling Furnace Maintenance

homeowner talking to heating technician about furnace maintenance

Furnace season is almost upon us. It’s time to ensure that your heating system is good to go. If there are any issues, you’ll want them settled before the first cold front hits Fayetteville. Furnace maintenance is the key to cozy and reliable indoor comfort.

1. Eliminate Annoying Furnace Breakdowns

Industry studies clearly show that a well-maintained furnace is a happy furnace. In fact, annual tune-ups decrease the odds of a furnace breakdown by up to 95 percent.

Your service technician will be on the lookout for existing and potential performance problems. If any are detected, they can be resolved immediately instead of waiting for the unit to stop working.

2. Extend Furnace Lifespan

The average furnace lives 15 to 20 years. A furnace that’s lovingly cared for can last 30 years. A neglected furnace will be lucky to see its 10th birthday. Many people don’t realize just how much heating systems are damaged by dismissing annual tune-ups.

3. Maximize Energy Savings

The gunk that accumulates on your furnace after a season of keeping you warm can severely damage the unit if not removed promptly. The grungy buildup makes it harder for a furnace to push warm air through the ductwork system. That increases wear and tear while jacking up energy consumption. Clean, well-maintained furnaces are up to 40 percent more energy-efficient than their dirty and neglected counterparts.

4. Put Safety First

Furnaces are equipped with electrical circuits. Over time, the wires can fray or become damaged and require repair. Furnaces are also fitted with gas lines that can leak CO and gas. Your service technician will inspect the heat exchanger for cracks, test for leaks, check the ignition system and ensure proper venting.
