If you’re concerned about your furnace’s status, then it’s definitely time to give us a call.

Why You Should Schedule Annual Service of Your Home Heating

We sometimes take our furnaces and heat sources for granted, that is until they breakdown. Of course your furnace is not going to go out in July, most likely it will be in the dead of winter when you need it the most. Having annual service performed on your home heating is the best way to prevent expensive and inconvenient breakdowns as well as save you money in the long run. Here are five good reasons to have an annual home heating service performed before winter is here:

1. Prevention is always better than cure. It is almost always less expensive to have preventative care done than repairs. Having your heating serviced annually can fix issues before they cause big problems.
2. Lower fuel costs. When a heating system is clean and running efficiently, it will use less fuel. Just like maintenance services can increase your fuel efficiency on your car, your heating system will use less fuel when it is working properly.
3. Reduce wear and tear. A clean, well-lubricated heating system will reduce the wear and tear on the components. This can extend the life of these parts as well as prevent breakdowns.
4. Protect your investment. Heating systems are one of the more expensive pieces of equipment in your home. Regular maintenance and service can extend the life of these systems and protect your investment.
5. Even heating. When your heating system becomes dirty and clogged, it can be difficult for it to heat your home evenly. One room is cold when another is hot. Regular service can improve the comfort level within your home by ensuring that the heat is distributed evenly.

By doing annual service on your furnace or home heating, you will save money and possibly prevent any interruptions in service when the weather gets chilly. It is the best way to prepare your home for the winter ahead.
