Here in New Jersey, a functioning furnace is an absolute must. With winter just around the corner, temperatures are dropping lower every day. To ensure your family stays warm and cozy this winter season, you need to schedule a fall furnace inspection and tune-up. Continue reading to discover 5 reasons why you should schedule your next furnace maintenance appointment.
1. Keep Your Family Safe
A dirty, unmaintained furnace cannot run at peak efficiency; therefore, it has to burn more fuel and run for longer periods of time in an effort to warm the home. This means that an unmaintained furnace will produce significantly more carbon monoxide (CO) than a properly maintained system.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can poison your home and family in large quantities. Typically, a well-maintained system will emit small amounts of carbon monoxide without putting anyone in harm’s way. But once a system becomes dirty and inefficient, it can start to produce unhealthy amounts of this gas, which can potentially result in natural gas poisoning.
2. Maximize Your Energy Efficiency
Did you know that your furnace is likely responsible for 50% of your energy bill? To avoid high energy bills, it is important to keep up with routine maintenance. Skipping out on maintenance can result in dirty and clogged air filters, dirty ductwork, clogged drains, and other problems that can significantly reduce the efficiency of your system. A dirty furnace has to work much harder and exert more energy in order to heat a home, which results in extremely high energy bills.
3. Reduce the Risk of Costly Repairs
During furnace maintenance appointments, your technician examines and tests each component of your system. This allows them to discover and resolve any problem areas early on before they have a chance to cause a system breakdown.
4. Extend the Lifespan of Your Furnace
Unmaintained furnaces are far more likely to experience frequent breakdowns and repairs. Consequently, frequent breakdowns and repairs are the leading cause of premature furnace failure. In fact, a lack of proper maintenance can be expected to cut the lifespan of your furnace in half. To keep your system running better for longer, it is important to keep up with routine maintenance.
5. Satisfy Your Warranty
If the day ever comes where you need to cash in on your manufacturer’s warranty, they will ask you to show proof that you serviced your system on a regular basis. The last thing you want is to discover that you are not covered under the warranty because you skipped out on annual maintenance appointments.
