It’s that time of year again – the seasons have changed and it’s time to have your furnace maintained. But is it really necessary? It seems to be working fine and you had it checked out last year, so what’s the point? There’s actually several good reasons to have your furnace maintained seasonally and many of those reasons can save you money so they are worth considering!
- Maintenance checkups are much more cost-effective than emergency repair calls! The point of maintenance is to provide preventative care so you won’t need extensive or emergency repairs. When our technicians maintain your system, they inspect all of the parts and components to ensure everything is working properly. If it isn’t, they can fix the issue before it turns into an emergency situation.
- Properly maintained systems are more efficient and that saves you money on utilities. Even something as simple as a dirty filter can force your furnace to work harder and thus less efficiently, so just imagine the impact if something bigger is wrong with your furnace.
- Maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your furnace. A furnace should last around 15 years on average, but it could be a lot less if your system isn’t maintained properly through those years. Avoid having to call for Houston HVAC installation before your time and protect the investment you have now with routine maintenance.
- Be sure to read your warranty carefully. Many warranties suggest or even require routine maintenance in order for some things to be covered and many state that they will not cover issues that arise due to improper maintenance. Something out of your control could turn costly simply because you can’t prove a consistent maintenance schedule.
