As we get further and further into the fall season, temperatures are continuing to drop, and every day is a step closer to the point where Davis and Dixon homeowners finally turn on their heating to keep the overnight temperatures comfortable in their California homes.
If this sounds familiar, you probably haven’t thought about your furnace for many months. But it won’t be long before you’re relying on it every day to keep you cozy during the colder winter months.
The best heating system is both reliable and one that you hardly ever have to think about. A great way to achieve home comfort in the coming months is with regular furnace maintenance—here’s why.
Do You Need to Service Your Furnace Every Year?
Similar to bringing your car into the mechanic shop to make sure everything’s running smoothly, annual furnace inspection and maintenance can go a long way towards preventing heating emergencies when you are least expecting them.
Even if you turn your furnace on for the first time since spring and it starts blowing out hot air, that doesn’t mean everything’s okay. There are many HVAC issues that can affect the efficiency of your furnace. An inefficiently-running furnace will waste money in energy use, increase wear and tear, and will create a shorter system lifespan with more frequent repairs.
Improving the efficiency of your furnace will save energy, lower heating bills, and decrease the chance of an emergency service call in the dead of winter.
What Does a Furnace Tune-Up Consist Of?
A furnace tune-up checklist involves a thorough inspection of your system based on improving furnace efficiency.
Furnace maintenance calls include:
Visual inspection of furnace components & ductwork
Checking air filters
Testing safety controls
Lubricating moving parts
Evaluating thermostat operation
Cleaning burners and pilot
Tightening electrical connections
Water Heater Safety Check
