By scheduling a tune-up before winter hits, you can bring your system back up to its peak performance and efficiency levels and ensure that it is fully-prepared to take on the cold weather ahead. Not only will this help you avoid a furnace breakdown during the dead of winter, but it will also minimize your monthly heating bills.
Another important reason to schedule a furnace tune-up every year is because it will make sure that your furnace is running safely. Because your furnace is a fuel-burning appliance, it emits carbon monoxide during the heating process. Normally, this dangerous gas is vented out of your home, but problems like a cracked heat exchanger or a blocked flue can allow carbon monoxide to build up in your home’s air. During a tune-up, we’ll perform a full safety inspection and ensure that your system does not have any problems that can lead to carbon monoxide leaks or fire hazards.
