5 Benefits of Getting a Furnace Tune-Up
Now that your AC will be safe from the winter weather, you should focus on preparing your furnace. You’ve likely had it inactive for the past several months, and it’s likely gotten dusty and worn down during that time. If you want to ensure your Pennsylvania home will have heat this winter, you’ll want to call us to perform a furnace tune-up. By fixing it up, we can help stop any problems your furnace may have developed over the summer.
Here are five ways that getting a furnace tune-up for your Pennsylvania home can help you:
Save money, stop breakdowns
A furnace tune-up might not be something you want to pay for, but it’s less costly than replacing or repairing your furnace. Furnace tune-ups allow us to find and prevent problems that could damage or break your furnace. By getting a tune-up, you’ll save money in the long run and avoid losing your heat during the winter.
Prevent dangerous gas leaks
Gas furnace owners should be especially aware of their furnace’s health. If they get damaged or worn down, they can leak carbon monoxide or flammable gasses. Carbon monoxide is deadly to people and most animals, while flammable gasses can start a house fire.
Know your furnace’s health and age
How old is your furnace and how healthy is it? If you don’t know, calling for a tune-up can help you learn. When we work on your furnace, we can help you figure out if you’ll need a replacement. You should schedule your tune-up as soon as possible to get more time to look at models that might be good replacements.
Prolong your furnace’s lifespan
It’s never good to neglect your furnace and tune-ups are key to keeping it running its best. If you don’t get yours regularly checked out, it’ll die out faster and cost you more as it uses more energy to run. Also, neglected furnaces are more prone to breaking down and needing other repairs.
Higher energy efficiency
Furnace owners, according to the Department of Energy, have about half of their energy consumption come from using the furnace. However, regular tune-ups can lower this percentage by replacing old parts and correcting other issues. Best-case scenario, your furnace can use 30% less energy.
