The cold weather has arrived in Cross Lanes, WV. As such, you’re now depending on your furnace to deliver warm air to make your home feel cozy and comfortable. The best time to schedule furnace maintenance is before you turn your heater on for the heating season. But if you haven’t already, it’s never too late. Here are four reasons to do so:
Minimize the Cost of Heating
To minimize the cost to heat your home, you must maximize the efficiency of your furnace. That starts with changing its filter every month if you notice it’s dirty. Every homeowner can complete this task. You should leave all other tasks, like inspecting, cleaning and repairing internal components, for a trained HVAC professional.
Protect Your Family’s Safety
Combustion is a chemical process; a substance like oil or gas quickly reacts with oxygen and emits heat. If you have an oil or a gas furnace, it uses combustion to heat your home. With combustion comes carbon monoxide. If you don’t schedule furnace maintenance, excess carbon monoxide can impact your family’s health and safety.
Avoid Pricey Furnace Repairs
A furnace that runs efficiently experiences less wear and tear. While some issues are inevitable, you shouldn’t have to call a heating repair professional multiple times each winter to service your furnace. During a maintenance visit, your service technician will repair any minor issues in your furnace and help prevent major problems later.
Reduce Your Home’s Carbon Footprint
An inefficient furnace wastes energy. The more energy you consume, the higher your carbon footprint. Furnace maintenance helps you reduce your home’s carbon footprint. As a result, you become a greener homeowner.
