The best time for routine heating maintenance is in early fall. Tuning up now prepares your heater to take on Atlanta’s erratic cold fronts when the weather starts gearing up for winter.
Prevents Heater Burnout
After a busy winter of keeping you warm, your heater is coated with grime. If not removed promptly, that crud can reduce airflow. Reduced airflow makes your heater overwork to push warm air through the accumulated grunge. Heater maintenance includes a deep cleaning of the entire unit. Keeping the system clean reduces the strain on your system. Warm air flows smoothly, and energy bills are manageable.
Maximizes Heater Lifespan
Stressed-out heaters that don’t get regular tune-ups don’t live as long as heaters that receive tender loving care. Well-tended furnaces can last 20 years or more. Poorly serviced systems might only last half as long. It pays to take care of what you’ve got because heating service keeps your warranties valid, too.
Minimizes Heater Breakdowns
When your heater won’t turn on, anxiety sets in, especially when it’s unreasonably cold. The uncertainty ranges from how soon an HVAC service technician can be on the scene to whether your system is even repairable. Ninety-five percent of heater breakdowns are preventable with annual tune-ups. That makes it a wise investment for your pocketbook and for your peace of mind.
Keeps You Safe
Furnaces can release dangerous carbon monoxide and leak gas into your home. Faulty gas and oil connections can cause a fire. Filters that get clogged with contaminants can pollute indoor air. If only for safety’s sake, annual furnace maintenance is a must.
