The best time to have an HVAC professional in New Market, TN, perform maintenance for your heater is during the fall. The weather is still comfortable, and our service technicians aren’t as busy. Here are some benefits of scheduling a fall furnace maintenance check:
A fall furnace check ensures that your system is working safely and ready for the winter. If it has a fault, such as a cracked heat exchanger, a gas furnace can release carbon monoxide into the air of your home. CO is an odorless, colorless and tasteless gas, and it can be deadly.
Extend the Life of the Heating System
Fall maintenance helps to extend your heater’s working life, which can be about 15 years or even longer. The soot, dust, grime and wear that accumulate stresses your heater. Cleaning, lubricating and troubleshooting allows your system to heat your home more efficiently.
Lower Energy Bills
A furnace that isn’t well cared for has to work harder to heat your home. This makes it use more fuel, and that causes your energy bills to be higher.
Reduce the Risk of Breakdowns
No one wants to face the nightmare of a furnace that breaks down in the middle of the coldest night in winter. Not only is this potentially dangerous, but emergency repair calls can be expensive. Fall maintenance lowers the risk of a breakdown substantially. As a result, you’ll spend less on heating repairs.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Though you may not realize it, a clean, well-maintained furnace can improve the quality of the air in your home. When air goes through a furnace, it has to pass through a filter before it warms up and returns to the registers. A furnace with a clogged filter can’t clean the air.
