Temperatures have started cooling down, and while we may not be in the months where we use our heaters every day, we’ll be there soon enough. When winter hits, you want to make sure that your furnace is ready to perform as effectively and efficiently as possible, without a sudden and unexpected need for furnace repair in Bergen County, NJ.
Having your furnace professionally maintained well before winter starts is a great idea. It helps you fend off problems that can come up and help prevent a situation where you’ll be stuck with a malfunctioning heater when you need it the most. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of scheduling furnace maintenance today.
This is, without argument, potentially the most important reason you should have maintenance done on your furnace. After all, the last thing you need to worry about is your furnace becoming dangerous for your household or family. This is mainly a concern for natural gas furnaces—while not inherently dangerous, they can become hazardous if not properly cared for.
During your furnace maintenance appointment, our highly trained and educated professionals comprehensively inspect your heating system, looking for areas where the system might develop safety hazards, such as a cracked heat exchanger or loose gas line. The peace of mind you’ll have after a tune-up is worth it all on its own.
Prevent Repair Needs
When temperatures dip this winter, you won’t want to scramble to call for repairs just because your heater abruptly stopped working on you. We offer quality and reliable repair services, but we would like to help you avoid an emergency situation altogether. Professional maintenance gives your furnace the best chance of making it through the heating season without any interruption in service.
Maintenance also stops smaller repair needs from growing into much bigger emergencies later on down the line. In fact, we estimate that staying on top of your routine furnace maintenance can prevent up to 85% of the repairs your furnace might ever need over its lifespan.
And speaking of that lifespan—you want your furnace to last for as many years as possible before needing to replace it, right? After all, a sudden furnace replacement expense doesn’t seem like a pleasant surprise. Maintenance helps your heating system achieve the longest possible efficient lifespan.
Lowered Heating Bills
A furnace that isn’t regularly maintained as it should be, will start wearing down faster than it otherwise would have. With problems such as extra friction on the motors, and burners struggling to produce enough heat, your furnace will drain more power necessary in order to operate, causing an increase in your heating bills.
Maintained System Warranty
Most HVAC system manufacturer warranties stipulate that in order to keep that warranty active, you must have annual professional maintenance done. By attempting to tune-up or repair your system on your own, you risk creating damage that you’ll then be financially liable for as the warranty will be voided.
