Before cold weather arrives in Greensboro, NC, it’s critical to schedule an annual furnace maintenance visit. If you forgot, it’s not too late to have this essential tune-up performed now. Our expert heating technicians perform thorough inspections, cleanings, and safety tests during a furnace maintenance visit.
Lower Your Energy Costs
A well-maintained furnace operates more efficiently. The furnace will burn gas more cleanly and convert more of the fuel into heat for your home. By keeping up with regular furnace maintenance, your wintertime heating bills will be lower, and your home will be more comfortable.
Protect Your Health
A leaky furnace heat exchanger could allow carbon monoxide gas to mix with the air you breathe. Carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to permanent health effects or even death. According to the Department of Energy, an expert heating technician should check your furnace’s heat exchanger and combustion chamber once per year for leaks.
During a furnace tune-up, all moving parts are cleaned and lubricated. Sensors are also cleared of debris. This cleaning and lubrication reduce wear and tear. The inspection part of the maintenance visit allows us to locate parts that are worn and in need of replacement. About 75% of repair calls could be avoided by keeping up with regular furnace maintenance. By replacing those parts before they fail, we help you avoid a comfort disruption and emergency repair visit.
Extend Its Lifespan
A well-maintained furnace lasts longer. Many manufacturers require an annual furnace maintenance visit in order to maintain a valid warranty. If something were to go wrong with the furnace while it’s under warranty, the manufacturer might not cover the repair if there’s no record of annual maintenance visits. Replacing a furnace is expensive, and an annual maintenance visit is a small investment in your comfort and health.
