As we’re all enjoying the cooler fall temperatures, we know how tempting it can be to put off thinking about the furnace and whether your heating system will make it through the long winter ahead. But a little time spent now can save you lots of headache, not to mention money, in the middle of January!
Scheduling maintenance for your heating system is one of the smartest things you can do this fall to prepare your Davis, Dixon, or Vacaville home for winter weather. Today we’re going to discuss the benefits of routine HVAC maintenance and signs that it could be time to upgrade your furnace.
The Benefits of Maintaining Your Furnace
Just like your car needs a tune-up every so often, you’ll get more out of your furnace and reduce the risk of unpleasant heating system surprises by having a professional look over your unit before the start of every heating season.
Furnace tune-ups help:
- Keep your unit running as efficiently as possible
- Address smaller issues before they turn into larger, more expensive problems
- Prevent unexpected breakdowns
- Ensure safe operation
Many homeowners think that if their furnace turns on and heat is coming out of the vents that there’s no need to schedule a tune-up, but a maintenance visit can actually identify problems with your unit before you’d ever notice that something’s wrong.
Without regular tune-ups, you’re taking a gamble that may result in a carbon monoxide leak, higher energy bills, and increased wear and tear on your system that can lead to inconvenient breakdowns and a shorter lifespan.
Get Ahead of Furnace Replacement
Having a trained and certified HVAC professional inspect and test your furnace is also a great way to know when you’ll need to start thinking about replacing your heating system! Knowing when it’s better to repair or replace a furnace can be tricky for the average homeowner, but a qualified technician from Greiner Heating, Air, and Electric can help you make the right decision for your home, whether it’s furnace repair or installing a new ultra-efficient furnace or mini-split heat pump.
