Around the holidays (or any other time of the year, for that matter), you’re looking for ways to save money. However, there’s a difference between cutting costs and cutting corners. For example, if you haven’t had your furnace tune-up
for the winter yet, you may be doing yourself a disservice by trying to save a few bucks.
A professional furnace tune-up is a good investment in your home that can prevent mechanical breakdowns, improve the unit’s service life, maximize energy efficiency, and maintain your system’s warranty. Let’s break down each one a bit more.
1. Prevent mechanical breakdowns
During a tune-up, the HVAC professional can identify furnace issues while they’re still minor – so they don’t become bigger, more costly, and potentially dangerous problems. Regular maintenance also limits the wear-and-tear on the system that leads to a complete breakdown, leaving you cold in your home and with a hefty repair bill.
2. Improve the service life of the furnace
A tune-up can also save you money long-term – even in a few years from now. Preventing unnecessary wear-and-tear this winter can extend the service life of the furnace. Every year you can put off replacing your furnace is thousands of dollars you get to keep in your pocket.
3. Maximize energy efficiency
As the furnace ages, small parts can get dirty or worn out. This makes the system work harder to do its job, which requires more energy. So even if you have a high-efficiency furnace, you will start noticing higher energy bills. A furnace tune-up ensures the system is working at peak efficiency.
4. Maintaining your warranty
If you ever need major furnace repair, the warranty can be a lifesaver (not to mention money-saver). Keep in mind that most manufacturers require you to keep up on maintenance tasks to cover your claim.
