Sep 20, 2019 | Furnace, HVAC Maintenance

With the national average cost of a new furnace (with installation) ranging thousands of dollars, we at your Five Star Heating and Cooling Company want to do all we can to save you money and keep your family safe and warm through the coming winter—and to avoid having to pay for a new furnace or risk losing your heat.

Here are eight reasons why it’s a good idea to get a furnace tune-up before it gets too cold.

It will prevent long-term damage to your system

Think of tune-ups as your furnace’s best friend, like getting a check-up at the doctor. There’s no better way to extend the life of your furnace than arranging for annual tune-ups. Our HVAC experts conduct tasks on your system, keeping it clean, servicing moving parts with lubrication and checking all the connections to make sure they are looking good. All of this will keep your system in good health. 

It will reduce the risk of your heat going out during the winter months

If the heat goes out in your home in the middle of winter, your house will be freezing, and it could put your family members in danger. Furnace tune-ups are as much about preventing future problems as they are about fixing existing problems, which is why a tune-up will make it unlikely that your home will be left without heat at any point this winter.

It guarantees a good airflow

When we service your furnace for a tune-up, our technicians check your heating system to make sure it is getting the proper airflow. Limited or constricted airflow puts needless stress on your furnace, which can necessitate additional repairs in addition to shortening its lifetime and costing you money, which leads to our next reason.

It saves money and time

Having your home’s heating system tuned up now, before the weather gets cold, is by far more beneficial as opposed to having to wait for a technician during the winter in a cold home. Plus doing it earlier makes it far more affordable keeping your system efficient.

Improves energy efficiency

With our thorough cleaning and inspection of your furnace burner and heat exchanger, your entire system will operate more efficiently. Additionally, it will ensure safe operation, and this will make sure your furnace runs this way all winter, lowering your bills as opposed to had you not gotten a tune-up.

It decreases the needs for repairs

It’s common in this industry that every year, customers get repairs for things that could have been avoided with routine maintenance, like furnace tune-ups. A tune-up comprises cleaning that keeps your furnace running as effectively as it should, as well as finding smaller issues prior to them becoming significant repairs.

It helps maintain the warranty from the manufacturer

Annual tune-ups are especially crucial for furnaces under a manufacturer’s warranty. Many furnace manufacturers like Carrier, Trane, or Bryant require it, instructing customers to maintain them regularly or the warranty becomes obsolete.

It keeps you and your family safe

Perhaps most importantly, having annual tune-ups conducted on your system will keep you and your family safe. Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat, and the burning process must be exact to maintain effectiveness and safety. You don’t want to take any chances here. Even a small issue could cause a gas leak into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. We advise our customers against taking any chances with the wellbeing of their families.
