Fall has just started and it’s time to start thinking about how you’ll stay warm when winter arrives. If you have a furnace, it’s likely been inactive for at least half the year, and it probably won’t be in the best condition after that inactivity. This means you’ll likely want to give it some maintenance to ensure it’ll work when the winter weather moves in. You never know how your furnace handled those months of inactivity, so getting furnace maintenance in your New York home is the best course of action.
Here are five reasons that getting furnace maintenance in your New York home is a good idea:
Extend your furnace’s life
Ignoring your appliances and their needs will only hurt their performance. Putting off regular maintenance for your furnace will have negative effects on its overall lifespan. Not to mention that poorly-maintained furnaces are more likely to break down at the worst possible moments.
Cheaper than major repairs
Furnace maintenance costs a decent amount, but it’s cheaper than major repairs for a broken furnace. If we find something during our furnace maintenance, we’ll fix it up for you at no extra charge. This way, you won’t be caught off-guard by a surprise breakdown and you won’t pay for a major repair.
Gauge your furnace’s health
When we do maintenance on your furnace, you’ll get a good idea about the health of your furnace. Having this knowledge, you’ll be able to make an informed decision on whether you should get a new furnace. If you choose to get a new one, scheduling your maintenance early means you’ll have plenty of time to shop around.
Better energy efficiency
A good portion of your energy bill comes from running your furnace. In some cases, it can contribute to about half of the bill. However, regular furnace maintenance can help you reduce this amount. Plenty of things that reduce your furnace’s efficiency can be fixed by regular maintenance. Well-tuned furnaces can use about 30% less energy than usual.
Discover dangerous leaks
When furnaces don’t get enough maintenance, they can become serious dangers to you and your family. Carbon monoxide, which can be released from malfunctioning furnaces, is deadly to people and many animals. Meanwhile, badly-maintained furnaces can also leak propane and any other gasses used to fuel them, all of which can start house fires if ignited.
