How often do I need a furnace cleaning?
Many customers ask, “Does my furnace really need a check-up every year?” According to Energy.gov, dirt and neglect are the top causes of heating and cooling system failure. In addition to eliminating the top cause of repairs, keeping your furnace clean improves efficiency, lowering your heating bills. Would you drive your car for 100k miles without an oil change? Of course not! Your air conditioner is no different. Annual maintenance is the best way to ensure safety, reliability, and peak efficiency.
Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up
Modern gas furnaces are designed with safeties to guard against overheating and carbon monoxide leaks. These safety devices should be tested regularly to insure that if a part malfunctions, your furnace will safely shut down.
Lower utility bills
The advertised efficiency is only accurate when your furnace is new and factory-fresh. After a year of operation, dirt prevents good airflow and heat transfer. With proper maintenance, we restore the system to clean and efficient operation. Depending on the current state of your system, a tune-up can completely pay for itself with reduced energy usage.
Catch small problems before they become big problems
We know from experience that, if we ignore small problems, they frequently become big, expensive problems. If you want to avoid big repairs, there’s no substitute for getting a professional technician in front of your furnace every year.
Every manufacturer requires annual maintenance to keep your warranty in good standing. The top causes of system failure are dirt and neglect. Should the manufacturer pay for a furnace repair simply because we never changed the air filter?
Avoid the late-night emergency call
Have you ever noticed that things always break at the most inconvenient times? Whether your car breaks down on a road-trip or your air conditioner quits the same day that you’re hosting a big party, Murphy’s Law always has great timing. While a tune-up cannot guarantee that you’ll never have a service call, it will greatly reduce the probability.
Furnace Tune-up Pricing
Have you seen a tune-up price that’s too good to be true? It probably is! In the industry, a cheap tune-up is known as a “fishing expedition.” The service technician can only make a living by finding repairs or by selling you a new system. You may think you are getting a great tune-up for only $39, but instead you just paid for a salesman to tell you that you need a new furnace!
So why wait? Our professional gas furnace check-up only costs $99 and we can schedule at your convenience (including evenings and Saturdays). Take care of your family’s safety and comfort today with a simple call or click.
