A reliable, well-functioning furnace is a necessity for home comfort during a New Jersey winter. Scheduling annual furnace maintenance is essential to keep your furnace in the best condition possible, and it offers a number of benefits like:
During a maintenance visit, a trained technician performs a variety of safety checks on key areas like the electrical wiring, fuel burner, gas connections, heat exchanger and exhaust system. This ensures that the furnace is operating properly so there’s less risk of carbon monoxide or gas leaks, fires or other safety concerns.
If your heating system is still covered by a manufacturer’s warranty, getting it professionally maintained every year is likely a requirement, and it can let you avoid having a claim denied if one of the components fails and requires replacement.
Lower Energy Bills
The steps your technician takes during routine maintenance, such as cleaning and adjusting components like the blower assembly and burner, are vital to keep the furnace running at maximum efficiency so you pay less to heat your home.
When your furnace is inspected and tuned-up annually, there’s less chance that it will fail unexpectedly during the winter and leave you without heating when you need it most.
Longer Equipment Lifespan
Like any other kind of mechanical equipment, your furnace will last longer if it gets timely, regular maintenance throughout its service life. Proper maintenance can also prevent the premature failure of critical components that requires a costly, unplanned replacement.
Fewer Big Repair Bills
Cleaning the system components, checking connections and lubricating moving parts keeps your heating system in good overall condition, which lessens the likelihood of breakdowns in the future. Regular maintenance can also save you money on furnace repairs over the equipment’s lifespan because it gives your HVAC pro an opportunity to find any developing issues early on. This allows you to have minor issues corrected before they escalate into bigger problems that require more extensive and expensive repairs.
