3 Benefits of Heating System Maintenance
Makes Furnace Last Longer
If you’ve ever installed a heating system, you know furnace installation is expensive. Because of the cost of furnace replacement and everything involved, we would all be wise to make our heating systems last as long as possible. The best way to do this and protect home heating equipment, is to utilize preventative maintenance. Without preventative maintenance, most furnaces only last about half as long as they would if they had been cared for properly by a professional. Furnace manufacturers say this is something homeowners should all try to keep in mind: Installing a brand-new home heating system sooner than normal is going to be far more expensive than any regular furnace maintenance visit from a professional. This goes to show why we say it always pays off to be proactive with HVAC equipment, rather than reactive.
Whenever we install a new heating system or heat pump, we give our customers a written warranty from the furnace equipment’s manufacturer. This factory warranty explicitly states that maintenance needs to be performed by a professional every single year by an NATE-certified HVAC technician, in order to remain valid and active. If a homeowner forgets to have this service performed even one time, their expensive equipment warranty can be made void. If your warranty isn’t good and there’s a problem with a bad part or a defective product, you could end up getting stuck having to pay for the furnace repairs on your own out of your pocket using your money. You could also have to pay for full replacement.
Lowers Your Home Heating Costs
For a heating system to provide sufficient heat throughout the house, maintenance needs to be performed regularly. Maintenance also helps your HVAC system work consistently and meet all your needs in the most affordable manner possible. Like other appliances and household equipment, HVAC equipment can develop wear and tear after continuous use. Furnaces collect dust, dirt, and other debris. Ultimately, this stuff messes with the equipment’s overall heating efficiency and makes home heating costs go up. Homeowners can avoid this by making sure their heating systems get the professional care, attention and love they deserve. This will save you money every year on your heating bills and prolong the lifespan of the equipment and much more.
