Yearly Furnace Tune-Ups Can Extend Service Life

Greater Atlanta homeowners know that even in the balmy Deep South, winter temperatures can drop into the 20s. Unpleasantly chilly weather usually starts with cold November rain that can easily turn to ice. You count on your furnace to be there, but what if it dies instead? Sudden heater death and unexpected heater replacement are easy to avoid with yearly furnace tune-ups.

Minimize Furnace Breakdown

The most likely time for a furnace breakdown is during severe weather. Small issues that have gone undetected and haven’t caused trouble so far are now subjected to extreme stress.

Conversely, furnaces that receive yearly tune-ups rarely break down unexpectedly if they break down at all. Furnace breakdowns are not always fatal. You may be able to fix the problem with a major furnace repair.

Prevent Premature Furnace Death

With dedicated maintenance and proper care, a furnace should last for 15-20 years. An exceptionally well-maintained furnace can last for even longer. On the other hand, neglected furnaces become filthy and rusty like cars that never get an oil change.

A sticky coating can collect on the heating system components, and it eventually causes blockages in the system. Airflow is diminished because the furnace has to push heated air through blocked components. The furnace has to work twice as hard to push air through the system, and the result is excessive furnace wear and tear that leads to a premature death.

Protect Furnace From Running With Bad Parts

A furnace with a cracked heat exchanger may still work, but it’s not safe. The furnace can emit toxic gases like carbon monoxide. Qualified HVAC experts can detect bad parts while inspecting the unit and repair them right away.
