7 Reasons to Schedule a Furnace Check

Home Maintenance | HGDI ADMIN

Your home’s furnace is a vital appliance that is often ignored until it breaks down. Of course, once that happens, you may be faced with an inconvenient and expensive problem. 

Seven Reasons to Schedule: 

  1. The largest chunk of your home energy costs go toward heating and cooling (an estimated 48 percent). An improperly working furnace could cost hundreds of dollars each year.
  2. An well-running furnace is better for the environment.
  3. Clogged filters can encourage mold growth, which then spreads through your home. 
  4. Dirty coils and filters can release pollutants, reduce the air quality in your home, and be dangerous for asthma and allergy sufferers.
  5. Regular maintenance will extend the lifespan of your furnace.
  6. Preventative maintenance helps spot small problems before they become major issues. 
  7. Knowing your unit won’t fail on the coldest days of the year will give you peace of mind.

What Happens During a Furnace Check?

A furnace check and tune up should be done by a qualified service provider. Look for local heating and cooling experts in your area, or contact your fuel provider. Scheduling automatic annual tune ups may be the most cost effective to maintain your furnace. 

This is what should happen during the maintenance check.

  • Filters and coils are cleaned or replaced
  • The heat exchanger is cleaned
  • All burners are cleaned
  • The unit is throughly tested
  • All safety controls are checked. 

Practicing preventative maintenance now could pay off later.
