Top Benefits of Preventive Furnace MaintenanceHave you scheduled preventive furnace maintenance this year? Perhaps you wonder whether the appointment is worth the investment. If so, consider the top benefits of preventive furnace maintenance and decide for yourself.

  • Enhanced performance: A furnace is only as good as the care it receives. A neglected furnace can fall behind or create cold pockets in your home. On the other hand, a well maintained furnace can run at peak performance for optimal comfort and energy efficiency.
  • Lower energy bills: Better performances result in lower energy bills. You don’t have to run the equipment as much to keep your home comfortable, so your bills will drop. In this way, preventive furnace maintenance pays for itself in energy savings.
  • Longer system life: No furnace lasts forever, but you can get a few more years from yours if you maintain it annually. A longer lifespan means you’ll save money on replacement equipment as years go by.
  • Increased safety: Gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning and fire are real threats when you have a furnace in your home. Annual visits ensure your equipment is running safely for your peace of mind.
  • Cleaner indoor air: Regular cleaning helps keep dust, mold and debris to a minimum, so pollutants don’t enter indoor in high concentrations.
  • Catch problems early: You may think it’s more cost effective to wait until something goes wrong to call a professional. However, once you notice the problem, it may be far worse than you think. Preventative maintenance gives technicians the chance to spot problems early, such as a fraying belt, and remedy the problem before it requires a more expensive repair.
  • Less chance of total system failure: You can schedule annual maintenance at your convenience, but breakdowns are hardly ever so accommodating. Chances are your furnace will experience failure as the temperature plummets, which is when you need your furnace the most. A well maintained system is less likely to fail, so you can make it through the season without an inconvenient breakdown.
