With fall in full swing, you’re probably getting a lot of use out of your furnace. Proper maintenance ensures safe and efficient performance. It can also save you money on home expenses, as explained in the guide below.
How Will Furnace Maintenance Save You Money?
1. Reduces the Frequency of Repairs
Your furnace repair costs could increase in the future if the system isn’t regularly maintained. HVAC technicians will inspect your furnace for worn components and other damage, and they’ll replace any broken parts for improved operation. Without the proper maintenance, something as simple as a blower motor failure can lead to a cracked heat exchanger, which is what heats the air as it moves through the system. Heat exchangers are far more expensive to repair compared to blower motor replacement.
2. Lowers Your Utility Costs
Inefficient systems use more energy to heat your home. They can also not warm all of your living spaces evenly, contributing to problems like poor sleep. If you’re curious about efficiency, compare this year’s heating bills to last year’s and see if there’s been a spike in energy usage. Consider having a technician switch out the air filter, inspect moving parts, and check the burner system to help increase performance and lower your energy bills.
3. Extends the Life Span of Heating Equipment
Heating equipment is an investment, so homeowners want to get as much out of their current system as they can. With the right maintenance, your furnace can offer 15 years or more of dependable service. That means you can get the longest life out of your heating system investment. When regular maintenance is lacking, your equipment may fail prematurely as small issues can cause larger issues, and your system’s reliability gets worse over time.
