What Exactly is a Heating Tune-Up?
A furnace tune-up is an annual maintenance service that cleans and inspects your heater. Your heater can be a hazard if it is not up to safety standards. For that reason, heating tune-ups are essential.
What Happens During a Tune-Up?
When we come to your home for a heating tune-up, we will inspect your furnace. Furnace inspections are good for more than one reason. Firstly, our technicians will ensure that your heating system has adequate ventilation to ensure that it’s not a safety hazard in the event of a gas leak. In addition to that, we will also ensure that there are no carbon monoxide leaks.
We will also test all your components to ensure that each one works. If one component is damaged, it can impact the lifespan of the entire system. Spotting these problems early can prevent them from spiraling into something more serious that requires expensive repairs. These inspections are vital to extending the life of your furnace.
Paired with our thorough inspection is a clean-up. The common heater problems are caused by a build-up of dirt. Dirt is often underestimated, but it can cause terrible damage to your unit. During summer, when you don’t use your heater, mold and dirt settle on all the components. It is a good idea to schedule a furnace tune-up just before winter begins.
Reasons to Keep Up with Your Furnace Tune-Ups
It is easy to neglect regular maintenance. At times, we forget to send our cars in for a service, and we may even skip those regular doctor’s checkups. We understand that life gets busy, but all these things are vital, much like a heating tune-up. If you skip your furnace tune-ups, there are expensive consequences. Here are 3 reasons to keep up with your annual heating tune-ups:
Save Money on Utility Bills and Frequent Repairs
When your furnace is not maintained, you have to schedule repairs more often. These repairs cost a lot of money. If you don’t have the budget for these costly repairs, you may end up not having a heating system to get you through winter. This is the last thing we want for our neighbors. In addition to expensive repairs, a dirty heater will use much more energy to maintain the desired temperature. Schedule your annual furnace tune-up with S.O.S. Heating & Cooling, and we will help you save money.
Prevent Sudden Breakdowns
We dread the possibility of our heater suddenly breaking down. This would be a horrible inconvenience for you and your household. This may happen on the coldest day in winter when your furnace is working the hardest, or just before a special event at your home. By inspecting and cleaning your unit regularly, you can take care of the components that wear out easily. We may not be able to stop these breakdowns, but we can help to prevent them.
A dirty furnace will release dirt into your home. This can have a harmful effect on your family. If anyone suffers from respiratory issues or allergies, a dirty furnace will only make it more severe. In addition to that, your furnace may develop a gas leak from the lack of regular maintenance. Our technicians will check your ductwork and gas line for potential leaks.
