5 Ways that Preventative Maintenance on your Furnace will Save You in the Long Run
Most homeowners know that regular furnace maintenance is recommended, but few people actually take it seriously. It’s just one of those things we all know we should be doing, but hey we’re all busy!
It can be tempting for most homeowners to skip out on regular checkups when their furnace seems to be running well. Skipping maintenance on your furnace could be put you at risk and cause you to miss out on some awesome benefits!
Here are 5 reasons you should keep up with the maintenance of your furnace.
Regular furnace check ups will help you catch potential safety risks and give you peace of mind. Furnaces produce heat through burning fuel and it is important to ensure that this process is efficient. Problem furnaces can cause gas leaks, which could lead to a fire or explosion. You want your furnace to bring the heat not start the fire 🔥
An unchecked furnace can also lead to leaks in carbon monoxide which can cause adverse health effects, and in extreme cases, death. Keep your family safe and get your furnace checked!
Reduce your energy Bill
A furnace can make up a whopping 50% of your total energy bill, if it's running inefficiently you're missing out on a huge opportunity to save some serious cash!! (cha-ching)
Many people wait to see readily apparent decreases in efficiency before scheduling maintenance.
But, smaller gradual losses in efficiency can be much harder to notice.
A well-tuned furnace will use less energy and keep your monthly bill low! Some studies have shown that regular furnace maintenance can save you up to 30 % on your monthly energy bill. Over time that really adds up.
Your Furnace will last you Longer
A furnace that has had regular check-ups and is well maintained will last you much longer. You can get years more use out of your furnace when it is taken care of properly. This gets you much more bang for your buck for your original investment.
Also, preventative maintenance and repairs are going to be much more affordable than emergency costs or replacing the unit completely.
Maintain your Manufacturer's Warranty
In the event that you will need to cash in on your warranty, they will want to ensure that you have been keeping up with regular maintenance. The manufacturer will ask you for service records to prove that you haven't been neglecting your annual check-ups.
Unfortunately, if you can't provide them, it’s unlikely you’ll get the outcome you are hoping for. Investing in maintenance now is the way to get the most out of your warranty.
